Starting in the spring of 2018, the City of Urbana Public Works will manage grass on the City Building’s south lawn free of environmental and health concerns for children, pets, and wildlife by not applying synthetic lawn pesticides and fertilizers.  “The City of Urbana strives to keep our community a healthy place for everyone to enjoy,” said Mayor Diane Marlin. “Helping residents reduce use of synthetic lawn pesticides and fertilizers provides a safer environment for people, pets, and our rivers and streams.”

The City of Urbana has contracted with Varsity Striping & Construction Company to perform the annual pavement marking project. The project consists of repainting the center line, edge line, bike lanes and no passing zones on various streets in the City of Urbana. The striping equipment travels at very slow speeds when applying paint. Motorists should be patient and pass only when it is safe to do so. Please see the attached map for the roads that will be impacted.
