Dade City to have Pasco Avenue repaved before Kumquat Festival

By Florida's Original NatureCoaster™ Posted on January 3, 2020

Citing pedestrian and vendor safety, the City of Dade City Commission unanimously approved a change order with Kamminga & Roodvoets Construction (K & R) to temporarily pave Pasco Avenue prior to the Greater Dade City Chamber’s signature event, the Kumquat Festival, being held January 25, 2020.

Before and after the Commission’s decision, the City Administration continues to work with K & R and the local merchants to make the best decisions for the community.

To minimize physical and fiscal impacts for both the City and its merchants, City Administration and K & R revised the construction schedule and planned street closures.

After the Kumquat Festival, 7th Street will be closed between Church Avenue and Pasco Avenue for approximately one month to complete the construction of the stormwater improvements and provide a staging area for equipment and materials.

Pasco Avenue will remain open to two-way traffic between 7th & 5th Streets until water main construction begins (anticipated March). In addition to bringing the construction project back on schedule, the revised plan minimizes construction damage to Pasco Avenue.

Customer convenience is also being addressed for one of the most common questions from our business owners and their customers: “Where do I park?”

Through a partnership with our local business community, the City has secured permission from several private property owners to be able to utilize their existing parking areas for public use. While 7th Street is closed, customers can utilize the City’s public parking areas on 8th Street and Pasco Avenue, as well as Bank of America and the former site for San Antonio Credit Union on Church Avenue (see the map), in addition to the on-street parking available in the surrounding blocks.
