At the direction of the City Council, staff have been evaluating two alignments for a proposed Sidewalk Project along Childs Avenue, between Manzanita and Coffee Road.  Staff will present two layout options, Engineer’s estimates for each layout, and grant scoring considerations for each layout.  Staff is seeking the authority to apply for a Cal Trans Active Transportation Program - Cycle 4 grant and to include a 10% match from Measure V Alternative Modes funding. Staff have included the presentation as part of the staff report to allow for Council and the community to evaluate the proposed layout options.

 

Should the grant be awarded, staff will return to the Council to accept the grant award and allocate the required Measure V Alternative Modes matching funds.
