Resolution No. 2 - 1425 Pontiac Sidewalk Special Assessment District #54
Attached for your approval is a resolution to establish the estimated cost and distribution of costs for a new sidewalk in the Longshore, Indianola, Ottawa, Argo, Amherst Water Main Replacement Project (Sidewalk Special Assessment District #54).

In accordance with the City's Non-Motorized Plan and Complete Streets approach, a new sidewalk will provide a continuous pedestrian connection along the south side of Argo Drive for better access to Beckley Park from Pontiac Street. Also proposed is the construction of a crosswalk on Argo Drive, from Chandler Road to pathway into Beckley Park.

Budget/Fiscal Impact: This work is anticipated to be performed as part of the Longshore, Indianola, Ottawa, Argo, and Amherst Water Main Replacement project. Below are estimated project revenues for the overall project:

Water System $ 3,786,000.00
Street, Bridge, and Sidewalk Millage $ 660,000.00
Parks Department $ 10,200.00
Special Assessment $ 7,300.00
Total Revenue $ 4,463,500.00

A contribution from the City of Ann Arbor Parks Department (estimated at $10,200.00) will pay for the construction of the proposed sidewalk adjacent to Beckley Park.

The estimated assessment amount for the 1425 Pontiac property is $7,300.00. The City's practice to charge 50% for side frontage of a property on a corner lot has created the opportunity for the adjacent property owner to receive the sidewalk at a lower cost.

Maintenance Impact
