TITLE:Discuss The November 26, 2019 Sustainability & Resiliency Committee Motion Concerning Recommendations For The West Avenue Renovation Project.


At its January 21, 2020 meeting, the Land Use and Sustainability Committee (LUSC) discussed the November 26, 2019 Sustainability and Resiliency Committee motion concerning recommendations for the West Avenue Renovation Project, under agenda item 27.


West Avenue residents who were at the Committee showed their support of the project which incorporates the results and recommendations from the Urban Land Institute (ULI) report. Inquiries were raised over an extension in the proposed timeline.  The Public Works Director stated that there is currently no plan for a Lincoln Court park, but it would not cause a delay to scope.


At the end of the discussion, a motion was made to provide a presentation about resilience communications, including a FAQ document, to the LUSC.


Results from the 2019 Resident Survey show that 50% of residents were very satisfied/satisfied with the efforts to manage stormwater drainage and flooding, and 37% were very satisfied/satisfied with the City's efforts to reduce pollution from stormwater runoff through filtration systems. In order to continue maintaining excellent standards in this area, the City is planning a West Avenue Renovation Project.
