Downtown Streetscape Master Plan
The City of Bellbrook has contracted with the Kleingers Group to provide urban design and landscape architect services to the City by way of a Downtown Streetscape Master Plan. The project  aims to create a planning document that will guide both short- and long-term infrastructure and streetscape investments in the City’s Downtown District. The City hopes that a unified planning document will ensure that future capital, streetscape investments are consistent with the established vision for the Project location.

Little Sugarcreek Road Assessment - Ongoing
In April 2019 the City contracted with LJB, Inc. to assess Little Sugarcreek Road and its structural stability. In the spring of 2018 and again in the spring of 2019 there were areas where landslides occurred which resulted in structural failure of section of the roadway. These issues were concerning to City officials and an assessment to understand what was happening was necessary. During the assessment the City asked for engineers to look at the possible installation of pedestrian facilities as well.

The engineer's study included looked at a 2600 foot stretch of Little Sugarcreek Road from Franklin Street to Vineyard Way. Engineers conducted soil borings, installed an inclinometer to monitor any changes, developed recommendations and associated preliminary cost estimates.

Council was presented with the findings and recommendations at their August 26, 2019 meeting. The overall recommendation was to install a pier and plug wall type to stabilize the roadway and hill. Three alternatives were presented all with the same wall type. In the end, one recommendation was presented as the chosen option. This option was to install the wall further out which would include enough room for a pedestrian walkway and a railing. To fix the critical 300 foot stretch of road will cost approximately $1,100,000. To address the entire 2,600 foot stretch is estimated at $7,240,000.

Next, borings were completed along the entire 2,600 foot stretch of roadway to determine the composition of the earth below. Understanding these final depths allow us to establish better cost estimates.

North West Street Sidewalk Addition - In 2019 the City applied for and was awarded a Community Development Block Grant from Greene County. This grant allowed the City to install a sidewalk to the east side of North West Street as well as ADA compliant ramps. This afforded safe accessibility from Franklin Street back to the Plaza. 


North Belleview Culvert - On March 20, 2020 heavy rains caused two 72" corrugated metal culvert pipes to wash out on North Belleview and took the above roadway with them. This created the need for an emergency repair that was unbudgeted. With initial estimates at $500,000 to repair the culvert and roadway, identifying necessary funding amid a pandemic was not proving to be easy. Fortunately, bids came in less than expected and 100% of the cost of construction was able to be secured through Ohio Public Works Commission's Emergency Program. The repair consisted of a new concrete span arch and a widened road that will allow for future sidewalk access as well. The road was repaired and reopened by the October 31, 2020 deadline.

In December of 2018, work was finished to replace nearly 6,000 linear feet of water main along with 11 new fire hydrants, 73 new service connections, 40 new exterior water meters and milling and resurfacing of roadways affected. The work was completed to move homes from a low pressure line to a high pressure line. This greatly improved water pressure delivered to residents.
