Tribune photo by Aaron Piper/ Included in Seymour Mayor Craig Luedeman's State of the City address was the construction of a new gateway into the city on Seymour's east side along Highway 50. The gateway would replace the current sign welcoming drivers to Seymour. Leudeman talked about the city's past accomplishments but also outlined what he saw as the city's next projects.

Seymour Mayor Craig Luedeman crossed off several major projects from his to-do list last year, including the Third Street Sewer project, the north extension of Burkart Boulevard and the relocation of the Department of Public Works.

This year, he plans to do more, focusing on quality-of-life initiatives and improving people’s first and lasting impressions of the city. The estimated cost of the initiatives is more than $6.1 million.

“We’ve accomplished a lot, but there’s much more to do,” he said during his State of the City address Monday night.
