Public Workshop for Oak Street Improvements
07/05/2017 - FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
SANDPOINT TO HOLD PUBLIC WORKSHOP FOR OAK STREET IMPROVEMENTS
Sandpoint – The City of Sandpoint Public Works Department is seeking public input on the proposed design for a bike path and upgrades to the curb, gutter and sidewalk along three blocks of Oak Street between Boyer and Fourth Avenues in Downtown Sandpoint. A public workshop will be held in the Sandpoint City Council Chambers at 1123 Lake Street on Tuesday, July 11, 2017, from 5:30 – 6:30 p.m.
This project is a component of the overall Sandpoint Downtown Revitalization Project initiated by the City of Sandpoint in December 2000 to engage the community in discussions about the future of its downtown. A plan for future improvements, including the Oak Street improvements, known as The Downtown Streets Plan and Design Guide, was published in 2012.
A public meeting was held in 2013 specifically for the Oak Street Improvements Project and the City of Sandpoint was awarded a grant from the Idaho Transportation Department for design and construction in 2015. The Sandpoint Urban Renewal Agency is supporting project costs over and above the grant amount.
Final design of the Oak Street Improvements Project will be guided by the public input received during the workshop and City Public Works staff plan to seek bids for construction this fall with construction to occur beginning in the spring of 2018.For more information, please contact Jennifer Stapleton, City Administrator, at (208) 265-1483 firstname.lastname@example.org.
