A. Granting of encroachments permits as proposed by PBOT referred to Planing and Sustainability Committee for review. SWTrails is concerned the PBOT policy will lead to de facto vacation of unbuilt rights of way with no public review or input.
B. Meeting with Planning Dept Staff and PBOT Planning Staff
requested to address the meaning of the cryptic notes (prox page 155 or so) in the staff report from PBOT Planning staff to the P&SC which we do not understand and have not had an opportunity to discuss. See below for details of what has been proposed so far:
Work parties May 2nd continue to work on cleaning up the path on north side of Wilson 9 – 12 with a great BBQ lunch.
1. Red Electric Bridge
2. Bridge or Culvert (Storm Sewer) underpass of Boones Ferry Road.
3. Tunnelwood Drainage and trail
4. Completion of work on Greenway through Hillsdale.
5. Organizing to post monthly notices of progress on Red Electric in local businesses and distribution of Red Electric Brochures. Do we want to include a snippet of history in the announcements?
