The public information meeting was a success with over 40 residents in attendance! Here are some important issues from the meeting:
- Roads will be drivable throughout the project and there will always be at least 1 lane for access.
- Storm sewer work zones will cover approximately two lots at a time.
- Driveways will be replaced with concrete or asphalt to match.
- When the curb goes in, there will be a 5-day dry period. Residents will be asked to park on the street during this time.
- There is a small time gap where no construction work will be done between the curbing process and the fine grading process.
- New neighborhood street lights will be installed in all of the cul-de-sacs.
- In areas that storm sewer is being installed, 6 feet from the curb into the yard will be disturbed. In areas that only new curb is being installed, 3-4 feet of the yard will be disturbed.
- The contractor will plug the sprinkler systems by kinking the lines near the road. During the project, other zones of resident’s sprinkler system can be used. If water from a system is flooding the street, the resident will need to turn off the water. The contract will pay for the replacement of any damaged systems and an irrigation specialist will be used for the installation.
- An assessment hearing will be held on October 10, 2017 at a city council meeting. Letters will be sent to residents in September.
