CM Finch school are looking to the city for some new sidewalks. At last night’s regular meeting, City Council heard from the C-M Finch PAC, who want to see sidewalks built on 106th street from 100th ave to 111th ave. This story goes back to January 2006, when the PAC first contacted the city about sidewalks. At the time, they were told that it would be done in 2007 or 2008. Earlier this year the PAC again contacted the City Manager, and were then told the project had been put on hold because the city planned to re-pave the entire street, and would add sidewalks during paving. This is the C-M Finch PAC representative Renne Barrow.

The City says it’s now planning on re-paving 106th street in 2010 and 2011. In the mean time Mayor Jim Eglinski suggested making the street a no parking area, and painting a walking/bike trail on the street. Councilor Lori Ackerman has suggested making the entire area a 30 KM Traffic Calm zone, until the paving project gets underway. Both of these suggestions will be looked at by City Staff, and ideas will be presented later this summer in hopes of doing something before the 2008/2009 school year.
