  1. Division of Responsibility Map (Draft for Review)

    Below is an email from Chad Kupferschmid:



    I created and attached a “Draft” version map book for Level 2 DOR. Please note the legend at the top of each page contains all of the departments identify by the team and are included in the GIS domain list. The departments that were actually assigned to GIS features in the current draft, I made bold and located them on the left side of the legend. The remainder and current non-assigned departments I left in the Legend for reference during the review process. Once the review is complete and we’ve reached a “Final” status with the map/data, I will leave unassigned departments off the list.


    There is a lot to take in with this level of detail so I created an ArcReader version to assist with the review process, use one of the three options below to find and access the map.


    Option 1:

    Click the link to Launch the Map directly in ArcReader: J:\10_Transfer\Workgroups\DoR_Infrastructure_Review\ArcReader_DOR_Level_2_Review.pmf

    Note with this option a dialogue will popup asking if you for sure want to open the file, click Open.


    Option 2:

    Click the link, to find the map on J-drive then double click the .pmf file to access: J:\10_Transfer\Workgroups\DoR_Infrastructure_Review\


    Option 3:

    Manually follow the path on J-drive to get to the map then double click the .pmf file to access: J:\10_Transfer\Workgroups\DoR_Infrastructure_Review

  2. Revolving Loan Fund: FY2020 Project Selection Results

    7 projects were approved during the FY2020 Revolving Loan Fund (RLF) project selection. At this time, final scoring results were determined as well. F&S will be beginning these projects soon and will start assessing their correlated utility savings.

    Due to COVID-19, the voting process was conducted via email as opposed to meeting in person. As a result of the success in the virtual voting process, future selections are planned to occur in a similar fashion.

  4. Information Letter for Proposed Roadway Lighting Improvements Program

    Associated Project(s): 

    On May 11, 2017, the Public Works Department of City of Urbana issued a letter to the residents informing them about the construction of new street lighting that is planned for Illinois Street, Gregory Street, and Oregon Street and is scheduled to start this spring. The project is expected to end in late October 2017. The new streetlights will resemble the streetlights currently on Goodwin Avenue adjacent to the Krannert Center for the Performing Arts except the lamp will be a LED lamp instead of a metal halide lamp as is installed on Goodwin Avenue.  

    The proposed roadway lighting improvements are located along Oregon Street from Mathews Avenue to Lincoln Avenue, Gregory Street from Oregon Street to Illinois Street, and Illinois Street from Goodwin Avenue to Lincoln Avenue in the City of Urbana. The City of Urbana will oversee the construction of this project, which is presently being competitively bid.

    The project is expected to run from June through October.  Work will commence on Gregory Street, then move to Illinois Street, and finish on Oregon Street.
