Both reports were postponed from a previous meeting
Monday’s meeting of the St. Augustine City Commission will include two reports postponed from the August 9 meeting because of lack of time. Those reports, one from the Public Works Department and the other from the Mobility Office, offer updates on a number of fronts. Here are some highlights from each report. Follow the links below to see the full presentations.
Public Works Department Activity Report
- The San Marco Watermain project is complete benefiting 32 commercial properties, a church, a hotel and two multi-family buildings, and adding 13 new fire hydrants, all in all, more that 1,000 customers.
- The Fullerwood Watermain project is also complete which benefits 148 residences, a church and 14 new fire hydrants and increased the number of connections by 149.
- From 2014 through 2017, the city paved over 12 miles of streets and thus far this year has added over more than five miles benefiting nearly 2,700 properties.
- The tide check valve program continues with most of the installations completed in the Davis Shores neighborhoods. The remaining 80 outfalls throughout the city will be evaluated in the Master Stormwater Outfall Retrofit Plan scheduled for completion mid-2019.
Mobility Office Update
- Progress status reports on 30 projects related to Mobility, from neighborhood level projects like a sidewalk or adding a speed limit sign to larger projects including implementing a bike share program and launching new parking systems.
- The FDOT has scheduled the completion of the May St./San Marco Ave. project for this coming December with the completion of the related stormwater project a year later.
- Another FDOT project is the installation of signs at five entry points to the city that will warn drivers that the Bridge of Lions is raised allowing them to alter their route taking that information into account.
- Other accomplishments include the continued growth of the Free Park & Ride Shuttles provided by the city during the Nights of Lights and the spring festival season, the design and planned installation of a sidewalk along Plantation Dr., and securing new directional signage directing traffic to the St. Augustine Lighthouse discouraging access through residential areas.
