The City Council will hear a report on the Linda Vista Bridge Over Napa Creek Project at their December 2, 2014 meeting, in the evening session beginning at 6:30 p.m.
As directed by the City Council at last year’s budget hearings, the Public Works Department has completed property surveys and an alignment study to determine the feasibility of constructing a street connection between Robinson Lane and the Lone Oak Avenue/Linda Vista Avenue intersection. This street connection is identified in the Transportation Element of the City’s General Plan and is intended to provide improved vehicle, pedestrian and bicycle traffic circulation between the Browns Valley area and areas north of Napa Creek. The alignment study is the first step in a multi-step process intended to analyze the impacts associated with the project and provide the City Council with information necessary to assist in their decision making process.
On November 13, 2014 the Public Works Department held a community outreach meeting to present the results of the alignment study. The material that was presented at the outreach meeting provided the community with a preview of the material that will be presented in an administrative report to the City Council at the December 2 meeting. At the Council meeting, Public Works will be describing the characteristics of each of the three alignment alternatives and providing a summary of the comments received at the community meeting. Staff will ask for further direction on the project from the City Council at that meeting. All interested parties are encouraged to attend. Council meetings are held in the City Hall Council Chambers, 955 School Street.
