Highway 99 Streetscape Plan
Live Oak is committed to making significant public investments and supporting and incentivizing private investment. The City is currently making significant improvements to Live Oak’s infrastructure, and completing plans and studies as a strategy to encourage private investment. The City develops an annual Community and Economic Development Action Plan, and offers a Technical Advisory Committee to support businesses and development projects.
Current activities include the following:
- Detailed design of the first phase of the Highway 99 streetscape improvements from Ash Street north to Ramsdell Drive
- Reconstructing Pennington Road from Broadway to Connecticut, and from Larkin Road east to the City limits
- The Live Oak Recreation Trail—a one-mile multi-use trail for bicyclists and pedestrians along an abandoned railroad right-of-way from Apricot Street, north through downtown
