This update is to advise all residents that our consultant, Wilson T. Ballard has completed the preliminary design alternates for the streets in the community.
As all residents know, there is water flowing through the development.The completed field studies indicate an extremely large drainage area coming out of the mountain side.In order to manage this water properly, the proposed design must include storm water management areas and piping to them.The construction estimate just for drainage control has increased to approximately $2 million.We have requested additional funding for the project for next year’s fiscal budget, and will find out by late May 2020 if it gets approved.
For this reason, the design of the project is temporarily on hold.I had proposed a meeting for early this year, but decided it best to set if for May or June 2020.I will have more information on the funding status at that time, and as before, meeting notifications will be mailed to all residents.
Thank you for your understanding in this very important project.
Please contact me with any concerns or questions that you may have prior to the upcoming meeting.
Regards to all,
Tom Cashour, Project Manager III
