|Boulder Creek North - Arbuckle Costic|
Note sidewalk and footbridge
Because of an adjacent project to widen 12th Street from McGilchrist to Fairview, there seemed to be an agreement with the developer that the City was going to do this in conjunction with that project.

Note that it does not cross the creek!
(The new CIP map shows it 2014-16, btw)
Moreover, now that the lawn is in and the connecting walkways are poured, the line of the lawn doesn't look wide enough for a sidewalk, curb, gutter, and bike lane.

Maybe the City truly is going to come through and put in the sidewalk here, but I'm worried that line of the lawn, where a sidewalk would abut, is placed on the assumption that there's not actually going to be a complete sidewalk and bike lane here.
(Also - why are we still putting parking lots in front!)
It's worth pointing out that the food cart ordinance started with a request from Councilor Dickey on December 9th at Council.
|Revised ordinances only took a little over half a year!|
That seems to me a striking level of responsiveness by staff and Council. The City did well. Bravo!
