    DATE: March 30, 2010, for Submission onto the Agenda of the April 6, 2010, City CouncilMeeting

    ITEM: Sidewalk Policy Revision

    Public Works Departments Recommendation:

    Staff recommends that the Mayor and City Council consider revising the Sidewalk MasterPolicy, originally adopted February 12, 2008. The revision is to include the NeighborhoodAccess Program.Background:

    Based on discussions from the March 2, 2010 City Council meeting regarding the proposal for asidewalk to serve the Riverside Neighborhood, staff has developed a proposed policy revision.In the March 2 discussions, City Council identified a desire for a program that allows quickresponse to pedestrian access issues from residential neighborhoods to pedestriandestinations. Sidewalk segments of this type may take an unacceptably long time to prioritizewithin the Sidewalk Program due to their short length and disconnected nature. The proposedNeighborhood Access Program provides a separately funded annual budget allotment to bespent for small scale sidewalk projects on a first-come first-served basisDiscussion:

    The Neighborhood Access Program addition to the Master Sidewalk Policy would allow anannual budget allotment for small scale sidewalk projects that serve direct neighborhood accessto various pedestrian destinations. These may be small, disconnected segments that wouldnormally score within the prioritization of the overall Sidewalk Program. Projects would have tomeet the following criteria to be eligible for funding under this program:

    Projects have a maximum total cost of $50,000. Projects must be located on streets with a functional classification of collector or higher. Projects must connect a neighborhood to clear pedestrian destination, such as parks,

    schools, playgrounds, community centers/pools, activity centers, retail development,sports facilities, transit facilities, libraries, etc. No compensation will be given for right of way or easements of any kind. All required

    right of way and easements must be donated for a project to be eligible to use thesefunds.

    The proposed sidewalk project must form a contiguous segment from either anintersection or the end of existing sidewalk facility to another intersection, end of asidewalk facility, or pedestrian destination. No parcels may be omitted from contiguoussegments. Any omissions will make the project ineligible for funding.

  • 8/9/2019 Mayor and City Council Meeting - 04.06.2010

    12/133

    Projects will be initiated by written request from the community to the Director of PublicWorks. Priority will be given on a first-come first-serve basis with the date of letterreceived arbitrating.

    Once the Director of Public Works deems that a proposed project meets all required criteria forthe program, the project request will be sent to the City Manager for final approval and funding

    allotment.

    Alternatives:

    The Council can decide not to take action on this matter at this time and continue to address allrequested sidewalk projects within the FY 11 Sidewalk Program.

    Financial Impact:

    The proposed initial allotment for the Neighborhood Access Program is $100,000 and would bebudgeted to FY 10. This amount would come from the capital contingency fund.

    Sidewalk Master PolicyOriginally Adopted - February 12, 2008Amended April 6, 2010

    Sidewalks provide serve a number of functions including: encouraging people to

    make more use of the most basic form of transportation walking; providing non-vehicular mobility options; recreation space for walking and jogging; and informalmeeting places for neighbors. They also improve pedestrian safety throughoutthe City.

    The sidewalk policy has three major components: a comprehensive sidewalkplan as part of the capital improvement program (CIP), developer requirements,and a neighborhoo
