City's Project Description:
The goal of this project is to design a project that will reconstruct and retrofit the neighborhood’s existing public infrastructure to meet the needs of area residents, businesses and visitors. The primary components of the project include:
• Resurfacing or reconstruction of 3.9 miles of roadway;
• Construction of 1.2 miles of new permeable pavement alleyways;
• Complete temporary traffic calming “pilot projects” and seek neighborhood input for permanent use;
• Reestablish the existing potable water, sanitary and storm sewer systems as new;
• Improve area drainage and landscaped parkways;
• Improve sidewalk deficiencies (fill in gaps and replace trip hazards);
• Improve landscaping,
• Analyze and improve the area’s street lighting, and
• Relocation of existing power poles as needed.
The City also requested that any sustainable “best practices” to address water quality also be considered as part of this project scope. These considerations will include permeable pavement for alleys, bio-swales in parkways and other ways to treat stormwater runoff.
Another key component of this project is to complete public outreach throughout the design process and there will be multiple ways for residents to monitor the project’s progress and provide input. Please monitor this website for project updates, future meetings and, opportunities to provide your input to make this project the best it can be!
