Bikeway Planning.


Sanders Ferry Greenway
- Dec 2016: City reported changes to the RFQ and re-issue. The water crossings discouraged bids on the previous release.
- Jan 2017: City received one construction bid $900,000 higher than planned. Strategy to address the additional cost.
    - First, work with the bidder to reduce costs.
    - Second, apply for an Active Transportation Grant for the additional cost. .
    -Third, request from BOMA for additional cost to show TDoT and MPO City's commitment.
- April 2017: Mayor Clary asking for resident support for project

Saundersville CMAQ for Greenway
- July 2016: City Application filed
- Nov 2016: Bike/Ped Committee provided review
- Jan 2017: City did not receive grant. PROJECT ON IN-DEFINITE HOLD

New Stratton Downs Development
- Dec 2016: Plats for a proposed new development along Stop 30. Opportunity for a Bike Route through this development to Wynncrest as we previously suggested on page 10 & 11 North-Central Hville (Feb 16).

Durham Farms
- Dec 2016: Section of Drakes Creek Rd to be removed (between southern entrance and pumping station). Suggested: a bike/ped trail to replace this section.
Connector from Durham farms to Saundersville Road (once in the old planning for this area) is not in the current plan.

Burris School
- Dec 2016: Issue: lack of connection to Spearpoint and Cross Bows, thereby increasing already heavy traffic on Drakes Creek Road. Neighborhood residents reported as against having school traffic on those roads. Suggestion: Open these roads to Bike/Ped traffic.

Drakes Creek Greenway
- Dec 2016: Greenway connector to Stop 30. City was promoting a trail along the west side in the Davidson Academy property. Our Recommendation: run trail along the east side and include connector to northern point of the Streets of Indian (ref: page 17 North-Central Hville (Feb 16))

Batey Property Development
- Dec 2017: Attempts by property developer to get property rezone fail.  Developer cancels purchase plans. City is unable to purchase the land for a park.  Local residents formulate plans to purchase property and put in Land Trust for future park. Click here to follow project.
