The City of Lake Wales was awarded nearly $1.2 million to widen sidewalks and footpaths in the Northwest Neighborhood to increase the safety of pedestrians on designated walking spaces. 

Lake Wales is one of ten Florida communities to receive funding through the Rural Infrastructure Fund and the Community Development Block Grant – CV program, administered by the Florida Department of Economic Opportunity.

“This grant is going to help the City make an immediate impact to the infrastructure in the Northwest Neighborhood,” City Manager James Slaton said. “Residents will be able to travel safely to nearby schools and area parks,” he mentioned. 

Construction on the sidewalks is set to begin this year on select streets between Dr. J.A. Wiltshire and Florida Avenue. Plans include rehabilitating preexisting sidewalks. New sidewalks will be added along established streets without sidewalks.
