Director of Transportation Muhummad Rauf met with residents twice in 2020 before the onset of the coronavirus pandemic, he said. Concepts for the gateway’s roundabouts and multi-use trails were developed with the help of a citizen advisory committee in 2011 and 2012, he added.
During the transportation meeting in June, Rauf advised Mayor Lori Henry and City Council members to limit the feedback from the potential new citizen advisory committee to visual enhancements that would help beautify such things as lighting and sidewalks along the corridor. The project design was approved in 2012 and work since that time has been done based on the design.
Council members will review a draft of how the advisory group will be structured during a transportation meeting on July 29.
