December 2015 Updates

The Bond Progress Meeting on November 12th was well attended and very informative for our bond consultants. See comments collected and survey results here.
A virtual Bond Progress Meeting can be viewed here. Comments and surveys on many bond projects (including questions about flooded areas) can be submitted through this page until December 26th.

There was a question as to whether or not there were any designated wetland areas on the municipal site. If so, there would be additional oversight and requirements. According to a study performed by a Professional Wetland Study, there is no wetland on the site. See the full report here.

At the December 1st, 2015 City Council meeting, the bond team updated the council on several bond projects. There are several issues that need to be resolved before schematic design can continue in earnest. This includes questions about site drainage, following the heavy rains on October 30th.
The City has received the results of a tree assessment for the trees along Main Street. Drainage projects are progressing as expected, taking into account information received during the Bond Progress Meeting.
The Parks and Trails consultants met with City staff and received feedback regarding the improvements to City Park. Schematic design for City Park and for the Park Maintenance building is underway.
