Will you reconsider the shared-use path planned for Concord Avenue as part of the Concord B&C street reconstruction project? Will you call a special neighborhood meeting to discuss it? (Feb. 6, 2024)

The City Council conducted a public hearing on the project from Dec. 11 to 13, 2023. Resident comments were collected in-person and online. Staff presented a recommendation to change the five-foot sidewalk along Concord Avenue to an eight-foot sidewalk/shared-use-path. Changing the width from five to eight feet was related to space constraints on Wooddale Avenue. 

The eight-foot-wide facility continues the commitment in the Pedestrian and Bicycle Master Plan to develop a Twin Loops network designed for all ages and abilities that connects to key assets in the community, like schools and parks. Tree removals are minimal and hard surface areas are being reduced because most of the new streets are being narrowed.

The City Council approved staff recommendations on Dec. 19, 2023. 

Staff have received signatures from residents of the neighborhood that may be considered petitions, so staff and the City Council may have a discussion at a future Council meeting.
