coming soon

Up to 15 single-family houses are slated to be built on lots along Rison Avenue near England Street. The first phase, three houses to be built on the northeast corner of Rison and England, were approved by a city Planning Commission subcommittee Wednesday, said Crawford Howard, commission chairman.

Still on the boards is the makeover of this area, including landscaping, new lighting, benches etc.

This was planned 3 years ago and money allocated but as of yet nothing. ALDOT was the delay, but I think some property issues may still be the hold up.

The landscape pedestrian friendly project is underway at Five Points and will be wonderful when finished.

A sad note Sazio's restuarnt closed due to slow business. It was an excellent eatery but tucked away made it less

obvious. I'm sure it will be reborn as something else.

That would be a great spot for an Ice Cream/Burger stand...

It's too bad they closed. The food was pretty good. We just ate there last week, or the week before. Do you know if they are planning on opening back up somewhere else? Two locations that come to mind are the old Green Hills Grill and the old Hardees across from the Hospital.

^I think they were talking about these plans (PDF), which can be found on the city's Transportation Engineering website under "Archived Construction Plans". Interesting stuff, though the project is on a much smaller scale than I had thought.

slowly but surely, progress can now be seen. The Five Points recommendations stemmed from a $5,000 city-funded study in 2001 by Auburn University's Center for Architecture and Urban Studies.

New lampposts, benches, sidewalks are being installed

The Five Points facelift is beginning to take shape.

Work crews have been carving out sidewalks, relocating utilities and preparing the heart of the commercial area for benches and lampposts in a $1.4 million makeover on the east side of the intersection.

Work began March 28 and is scheduled for completion Sept. 10, according to Tanika Dorsey Lindsey in the city Engineering Department.

A second phase calls for sidewalks, landscaping and traffic signal improvements on the west side of Andrew Jackson Way along Holmes Avenue to Dement Street.
