Material to be presented at the August 14, 2017 Town Council Meeting:
Resolution Authorizing a Sidewalk Grant Amendment (Supporting documents in paper in Town Office)
The engineers have completed the 65% design of the sidewalk project. Shown here are the sidewalk, curb and driveway alignments, the stormwater management project design in Porcupine Woods at the Clermont trail entrance, and typical cross sections.
After an extensive search process, approved by SHA, the town contracted with Nobis Engineering to take over the engineering design of the Sidewalk Project. Nobis, with extensive experience in the design of similar projects, has worked with both the State Highway Administration and Montgomery County in obtaining the reviews and permits required. Nobis began immediately on the update of the previous design document and on March 13, met with the Town Council, the Sidewalk Advisory Committee and Town residents to obtain their expectations of the project.
Montgomery County has approved the stormwater management plan for the Town’s sidewalk project. The materials associated with this action are posted here:
