Easement outreach is underway! Our team is committed to a high-level outreach effort at each stage of this project. To that end, we’re developing individual packets of information for each property owner with 8th Street frontage between Boardman Ave. and Railroad Ave. These are going out in various ways – some we are delivering in person, some have been mailed, and some are being emailed (as per the owner’s request). We’re not finished – so if you’re reading this and haven’t yet received a packet you will be seeing it soon.
These initial property owner packets provide an overview of the project, its impact on the individual property, and the type of easement requested. Once everyone has received their initial packet we will be circling back to each property owner to finalize arrangements.
In the meantime, design work is continuing on the underground infrastructure and the engineering plan set. We anticipate the next public meeting opportunity will be a city commission meeting, and when we know the date for that meeting we will post it here.
Thank you to everyone for your patience as we work through the layers of detail required for this project – we appreciate your support and dedication to the future of 8th Street!
Upcoming Meeting Note: North Boardman Lake District Meeting – Feb. 18 – 8 am at The Box
