Title

Resolution No. 3 Establishing a Public Hearing for the Barton Drive Water Main Replacement and Resurfacing Project Special Assessment (District No. 60 - Barton & Starwick)

Memorandum

Attached for your review and approval is Resolution No. 3 establishing the date for the Public Hearing on the Barton Drive Water Main Replacement & Resurfacing Project Special Assessment District No. 60, File No. 20-0068.

 

The improvement includes a replacement sidewalk in conjunction with a water main replacement and resurfacing project along Barton Drive.  Three properties are located within the special assessment district.  The Barton Drive Water Main Replacement and Resurfacing Project included the construction of new sidewalk along the north side of Barton Drive at the intersection of Starwick Drive and the west side of Starwick Drive at the Barton Drive intersection.  An improvement to the intersection configuration was requested during the design of the Northside STEAM Safe Routes to School (SRTS) Project, and residents were told that this work could be included in the Barton Drive Project.  Since the sidewalk gaps were not installed with the SRTS proposal, the city would like to include the installation of new sidewalks at that intersection while we are reconfiguring the intersection.
