Administrative Report
Public Works Commission
April 10, 2013
At the April 10th meeting of the Public Works Commission (acting as the Bicycle and Pedestrian Advisory Committee), the project team gave a quarterly update which included the Hacienda Pedestrian Safety Improvement Project. This was another opportunity for neighbors to view the layout of this project.

Following the meeting, the project team did the necessary field work to start the project design and locate the necessary funding.  City staff advertised this project on June 27th, and the two bids were opened on July 23rd.  After review of the bid document submitted by FBD Vanguard Construction, Staff found that they were the lowest responsible and responsive bidder.

The PWC approved the design development of this project. Thank you to the residents who attended the meeting to voice their support.

Neighborhood Project Check-In
January 26, 2012
The Public Works project team met on-site with the homeowners who currently do not have sidewalk, and adjacent neighbors who do have sidewalk, to go over the strengths and trade-offs of this revised preliminary design. As a group, we visited each property. During this on-site project check-in, the team received very positive feedback.
