Public Hearing -Academy Avenue and Almond Avenue

Thursday, May 16, 2019

PURPOSE To hear public comments and to consider the elimination of a marked crosswalk at the intersection of Academy Avenue and Almond Avenue.

PURPOSE

To hear public comments and to consider the elimination of a marked crosswalk at the intersection of Academy Avenue and Almond Avenue.

BACKGROUND

The City is working on a project on Academy Avenue from south of North Avenue to south of 11th Street, which is planned to begin in June/July of 2019.  The project construction will consist of two primary phases.  The first phase includes grinding the existing asphalt and constructing an asphalt overlay between an area about 850 feet south of North Avenue to an area about 350 feet south of Annadale Avenue.  There are no plans to widen the road in this area, other than some minor work at the roadway intersections to construct accessible curb ramps and associated improvements.  The second phase includes the realignment and full reconstruction of the roadway from about 150 feet south of 11th Street to the area about 350 feet south of Annadale Avenue.  As part of the first phase of construction, it is proposed to remove an existing marked crosswalk at Academy and Almond Avenues.

           

The City is required to provide notice to the public under Section 21950.5 of the CA Vehicle Code when a crosswalk is identified for removal to ensure the public is notified and has an opportunity to comment.  Notice has been posted at the site as required.

All interested persons will be provided the opportunity to present oral comments to the City Council at the hearing prior to final Council action.  Written comments may be submitted prior to the hearing on May 16, to Becky Padron, City Clerk, at 1700 7th Street, Sanger, CA 93657 or by email at  bpadron@ci.sanger.ca.us. At the public hearing, Staff will summarize any comments received and present a final recommendation for City Council consideration.  At the conclusion of the hearing, the City Council may choose to eliminate this crosswalk as part of the Academy Avenue Reconstruction Project.

If you have any questions, contact Josh Rogers, City Engineer at (559) 876-6300 or send an email to jrogers@yhmail.com.
