Agenda Item - 2022-05-18 - Number 7i - Request for Comments Farley, Will From: Farley, Will Sent: Friday, May 6, 2022 8:28 AM Subject: TAB Pathway Projects - Neighborhood Association Outreach Hello, The Transportation Advisory Board (TAB) is currently considering which pathway projects identified in the City's Transportation System Plan (TSP) and Capital Improvement Plan (CIP) should be recommended for funding in the next biennial budget. For the past several years, the City Council has had a goal to prioritize funding for pathway facilities that best serve schools. Previously, at the March 9thTAB meeting, seven additional projects were reviewed based on the functional classification of the roadway it was on,the grade level of the nearest school and the project's proximity to the campus, and whether the project could complete a gap in our transportation system. In discussions following the review, it was recommended that the City reach out to the Neighborhood Associations for input regarding project support. I am reaching out now for feedback on the following projects (note: one project was dropped): • Carman Drive between Waluga and Quarry(Lake Forest/Waluga):The full project includes bike lanes and sidewalks on both sides of Carman from Interstate 5 to Kruse Way. However, understanding the cost for such a project would be subject to agreement from the County and likely prohibitively expensive due to length and roadside topography,TAB has recommended that the City consider a smaller project to provide a sidewalk between Waluga and Quarry. • Quarry Road between Oakridge and Boones Ferry(Waluga):The project would include constructing 600 feet of curb and gutter and 50 feet of 6-foot wide curb-tight sidewalk.The project is expected require the reconstruction of multiple driveways. • Pilkington Road between Willow and Boones Ferry(Bryant):The project would include the widening of the roadway for approximately 690 feet for the construction of 6-foot wide bike lanes and 5.5-foot wide sidewalks on both sides. • Thoma Road between Knaus and LOHS(Forest Highlands):The project would include constructing 820 feet of 6-foot wide sidewalk to the end of the cul-de-sac on Thoma and the construction of 430 feet of 6-foot wide asphalt pathway to the school campus. • Sunningdale between 10th and Andrews(First Addition-Forest Hills):The project would include constructing 575 feet of 5-foot wide curb-tight sidewalk and 275 feet of 8-foot wide asphalt pathway to extend an existing connection along the school property.There has been previous comment stating the Neighborhood Association board would not support this project. • 10th Street between E Avenue and G Avenue (First Addition-Forest Hills):The project would include constructing 750 feet of 6-foot wide separated sidewalk that meanders with a landscape strip.There has been previous comment stating the Neighborhood Association board would not support this project. I should note that these projects are still in discussion and no engineering, preliminary or conceptual, has been completed. For more context on the projects,you are welcome to watch the previous meeting of TAB,where high-level details were shared with the board, or review the descriptions in the TSP and CIP linked above. Could you provide feedback regarding the projects in the vicinity of your neighborhood prior to the next meeting of TAB on Wednesday, May 18th?You are welcome to attend the meeting (being held remotely over Zoom) if you would like a representative to give comments in person. If you have any questions, please feel free to reach out to me. i Thanks, William R.
