Item Description:

title

Consideration of Resolution No. 19-1005 authorizing the 2019 Sidewalk Construction Project, PN 3-C-072-19..

Body

Summary:

There are missing sidewalk links in older parts of the city, as well as adjacent to schools. The Sidewalk Construction Project is an annual project and will include the construction of new sidewalks that would not be built as part of a street improvement project.

 

Staff has utilized the available walking maps and met with the school district to prioritize the areas adjacent to schools that are missing sidewalk links.  This evaluation took into consideration the number of crossing guards in the area, the percent of students on free or reduced lunches, location of the school and the approximate lineal feet of sidewalk needed.  Based on this information, the areas that will be focused on in 2019 for construction are those adjacent to Central, Fairview, and Ridgeview Elementary Schools.

 

The construction of the sidewalks is tentatively scheduled to begin in Spring 2019.
