SIOUX CITY, Iowa (KTIV) -

Sioux City council members are planning another renovation project. One that would revitalize West 7th street.

The city is considering a full reconstruction of the street and utilities in the area between Hamilton Boulevard and Wesley Parkway.

Along with that, businesses could take part in a facade improvement program to improve the exteriors of buildings. Other potential additions, benches, new lighting, and even public artwork.

"Often when we do projects like this, you do see some spill over affect to other areas. but again, with its close proximity to a lot of other projects we have going on with downtown, Hamilton, the new Heelan high school, Cook Park, it's in a great location to see something like this occur and I think it will be a positive for the whole area," said Jill Wanderscheid, Neighborhood Service Supervisor.

Wanderscheid says the project is expected to cost about $4 million, with construction starting in the summer of 2014. A meeting is set for March 12th to get more input from business and property owners.
