New Sidewalks Proposed For Pinecrest Neighborhood

The City has held three community meetings to discuss the development of six new sidewalks in the Pinecrest neighborhood. The process for new sidewalk requests, established by the City Council, requires that affected residents be involved in the decision through a series of meetings and votes. The first community meeting to discuss the request was held September 18, 2012.  The first vote, which took place in October, 2012, gauged support for proceeding with development of a design. The City received 77 total votes of which 63 were in favor, so the design process went forward.  The engineering firm of Whitman, Requardt and Associates was hired in November, 2013 to develop the design. Design proposals were presented to the community on April 23, 2014 and October 8, 2014. Based on feedback received from the meetings, five of the six sidewalks have a final design. The affected community has been asked to vote on whether to construct the five sidewalks and responses must be received by November 14, 2014.

The final design plans can be accessed below as PDF files. (Click "Read More" to access.)

Boyd Avenue Sidewalk Improvement Project (400 block of Boyd Avenue)

The City has held three community meetings to discuss the development of a sidewalk in the 400 block of Boyd Avenue. The process for new sidewalk requests, established by the City Council, requires that affected residents be involved in the decision through a series of meetings and votes. The first community meeting to discuss the request was held in October, 2012.  The first vote, which took place in November, 2012, gauged support for proceeding with development of a design. The City received 27 votes, 21 in the affirmative, so the design process was approved.  The engineering firm of Rummel, Klepper and Kahl was hired to develop the design. Design proposals were presented to the community on two occasions, March 26, 2014 and July 8, 2014. Based on feedback received from the meetings, a final design for the sidewalk has been developed.

The final sidewalk design includes a 5 foot wide sidewalk located on the south side of Boyd Avenue (odd numbered side) between Jackson Avenue and Aspen Avenue. The sidewalk is then continued on the north side of Boyd Avenue (even side) between Aspen Avenue and Lincoln Avenue. Please review the project document for the final design drawing.
