Title
Resolution No. 3 Establishing a Public Hearing for the Proposed Jackson Avenue Sidewalk Gap Project
Memorandum
Attached for your review and approval is Resolution No. 3 Establishing the Date for the Public Hearing on the Proposed Jackson Avenue Sidewalk Gap Project - Special Assessment Districts #61, File No. 20-0432.

The improvement entails the construction of about 1,640 lineal feet of a new, 5 foot wide, sidewalk. In order to construct the project it will be necessary to perform some regrading of the right-of-way in order to allow the path to be constructed to ADA Standards. It will also be necessary to remove 17 existing trees that are growing close to the roadway that will interfere with the sidewalk construction. Given the existing ditch in this area, it is not practicable to move the sidewalk to avoid the trees. This project will fill in a lengthy sidewalk gap on this segment of roadway and is expected to be completed in Summer 2020.

The sidewalk project can be described as Jackson Avenue Sidewalk Gap Elimination Project - Westover Avenue to Park Lake Avenue - Sidewalk along south side of Eastbound lanes of Jackson Avenue; Sidewalk Special Assessment District No. 61.
