This project was identified based on a petition received from the residents adjacent to the Idaho/Iowa alleyway between Pascal Street and Arona Street, as shown on the project map linked on the right. The proposed improvement project includes a mill and overlay of the pavement of the alleyway and drainage improvements to the alleyway and adjacent stormwater on Pascal Street.
At the May 12, 2021 Council workshop, the City Council ordered the preparation of a feasibility report for improvements in the Idaho/Iowa alleyway between Pascal Street and Arona Street. This was based on a petition from 52% of adjacent property owners. The petition requests the City address problematic drainage on the alleyway, specifically where it intersects Pascal Street. The petition requesting improvement was received prior to any cost estimates for the project or estimated assessment amounts.
Due to the complexity of the stormwater drainage in the area and short timeframe to add this work to the 2021 PMP contract, Council delayed the project at the public hearing on June 9, 2021.
The Feasibility Report was amended for 2023 construction with the 2023 PMP. The report was accepted and a public hearing was called by Council on December 28, 2022.
The Public Improvement Hearing was held on January 11, 2023. At that meeting, Council ordered plans and specifications for the improvement project.
