Major Street Repaving Planned for 2017-18
City staff has developed a plan of action for repaving as much as 50 city blocks of streets. City Council is expected to approve financing for the plan later this Fall. Depending on winter weather, that work is expected to get underway before the end of calendar year 2017. Known as the 2017 Infrastructure Renewal Plan, it calls for an updated pavement study to be completed first, after which the worst 5% of 60 miles of City streets will be targeted for repaving.
State highways 20 and 70 are located on portions of 9th, 10th, 12th, B and E Streets. Maintenance of those highways and traffic signals is the responsibility of California Department of Transportation (CalTrans).
The department is responsible for insuring that sidewalks throughout the City are maintained and repaired, including maintenance and replacement of street trees.
Sewer & Stormwater Management
The department operates the sanitary sewer collection and treatment within the city. Beginning in 2015, wastewater treatment for the city will take place at a new regional treatment plant south of Marysville operated by Linda County Water District.
Large parks designed for organized activities, sports or large group functions
Small landscaped parcels that serve as green spaces
Help Plan Improvements to Miner Park
In 2019 the City applied for Statewide Park Program grants from the State to improve Miner Park, Veterans Park, and Gavin Park. Sadly, we were not awarded these grants. California recently opened for another round of grant applications with even more funding available than last time. We got feedback from the State on the previous grant applications and have decided to focus our efforts and reapply for a grant to improve Miner Park.
We want to make sure that the project we are applying for addresses the needs of the community, so we hosted two public meetings in October to hear what the community wanted to see and combined that feedback from the feedback received in 2019 to create a draft concept plan.
We are hosting two more public meetings to get your feedback on the draft concept plan. We are holding two meetings to review the draft concept plan because we want to accommodate everyone’s schedules while being safe. While both meetings will cover the same content, the first meeting will be held virtually and the second meeting will be held outside, in Miner Park. We request that anyone attending the in-person meeting wear a mask and practice social distancing. If you cannot attend either of these meetings, you can also e-mail Craig Platt, Public Works Director, at firstname.lastname@example.org. to request a copy of the draft concept plan and provide feedback.
