Ever wonder how roads get improved, how signals replace STOP signs or how new sidewalks are added to older streets? You might want to consider coming to the July 27, 2017 workshop to get a sneak peek at the $103 million budget for 2017-18 -- and tips for requesting future projects.
By its nature, the planning, preparing and building of multi-million dollar projects takes a few years -- but the resulting asphalt, bridges and sidewalks last for decades. Each year, new items are added to our infrastructure do-list and this workshop will show you how to suggest that your pet project be what we build in the near future. The ACHD Commission is set to consider adoption of the budget on August 23rd.
The first workshop on March 16 gave an overview of the process, while the July 27th workshop will show how input from the public has been incorporated in next year's draft budget. We'll have experts in roadway planning, traffic engineering, street maintenance and stormwater protection on hand to answer questions and take your suggestions. You can finally get that answer about street sweeping or snow plowing -- and anything else.
The second workshop will be on July 27, 2017 in the ACHD Auditorium, 3775 Adams. St., Garden City
