History

This is a Capital Improvement Project (CIP). Sidewalks are selected based on a prioritization methodology that includes the City’s Pedestrian Plan, pedestrian crashes, street classification, household income, speed limit, age of population, density and proximity to parks, schools, government facilities, shopping, bus stops, libraries, hospitals, museums and sports facilities. 

Design work started on this project in 2015 but was put on hold in 2016 for lack of funds. Funding for this project was made possible as a result of the 2013 and 2017 Bond.
