Tree Debris / Storm Aftermath

 

PLEASE NOTEThe tree debris dump area at the City Shop on Airport Way will close on Friday, August 29.  No additional debris will be accepted after that date.

 

August 18, 2014

Sandpoint, Idaho

 

In an effort to help with the cleanup of the debris due to the storm that raged through Sandpoint on August 2nd, the City is making the lot next to the City Shop on Airport Way available for Sandpoint residents ONLY. City residents must have prior approval by contacting Dyan at the City Maintenance shop at 263-3428 in order to dump storm debris. No contractors, dump trucks, or chip trucks are allowed to dump at this site. Please do not place branches or other debris on the street or sidewalk.

 

Senior citizens who reside within City limits who need assistance in removing debris may contact the Sandpoint Senior Center at 263-6860. Sandpoint residents who are disabled and who meet certain low income eligibility may contact Community Action Agency at 255-2910. The storm that raged through Sandpoint on August 2 caused considerable damage to trees throughout the City.  City employees and contractors are currently assessing damage to trees in the parks and on other City property.  Property owners are encouraged to assess the condition of trees on their property.  It is the responsibility of property owners to prune their trees and dispose of the limbs and other debris in the county landfill.  Please do not place branches or other debris on the street or sidewalk.

 


Downtown Traffic Changes / Fifth Avenue Two-Way

On July 16, 2014, Sandpoint City Council voted to endorse a plan to convert Fifth Avenue between Cedar and Pine Streets to two-way traffic.  See the link below or click here to view the specific changes at each intersection.  The Idaho Transportation Department prepared the plan following a request by Sandpoint City Council in June 2013.

 

Closely tied to converting Fifth Avenue to two-way is an agreement between ITD and Sandpoint to transfer ownership of existing US 2 (Pine Street, Cedar Street and First Avenue in the downtown core) to local control (Independent Highway District and City of Sandpoint).

 

In December 2012, Sandpoint City Council voted to adopt the Downtown Streets Plan.  This plan is available here for download.  The plan calls for two-way traffic on all downtown streets (except Main Street between Third and Fifth Avenues).
