Infrastructure Revitalization Begins In Fort Scott

Fort Scott Set to Embark on Infrastructure Revitalization Project

Fort Scott is set to begin construction on a city-wide infrastructure revitalization project that will provide upgraded and improved environments for visitors, city staff, and the community-at-large. Through this project, the city is partnering with Schneider Electric, a global energy leader, who has helped identify energy savings and facilities upgrade opportunities at the following city facilities:

·       Airport

·       Aquatic Center

·       Buck Run Community Center

·       City Hall

·       Davis Lift Station


·       Animal Shelter

·       Fire Station #2

·       Golf Course

·       Gunn Park

·       LaRoche Stadium

·       Memorial Hall


·       Public Safety (Fire/Police)

·       Public Works

·       Water Distribution

·       Water Production Plant

·       Wastewater Treatment


Citizens will notice a variety of improvements spread across multiple city facilities, parks and infrastructure. The budget-neutral project is being paid for through guaranteed energy, operational and maintenance savings over 20 years. The ability to leverage savings provides an opportunity to reinvest operating expenses back into needed capital improvements.


The energy-saving measures will provide funding for several city projects that have been unfunded in recent years. With a goal of anticipating and mitigating future needs, this strategic initiative also plans to reduce annual operating and maintenance costs that will create new revenue streams through improved city services and infrastructure.


Construction is slated to begin the first week of February and will continue through the fall of 2020. The first scope items to be installed will include energy-efficient lighting across multiple facilities The City and Schneider Electric will provide updates throughout the course of construction to the local community through monthly information sessions with the City Commission.
