Quick Notes                                                               02/15/15

  • Channel Mark & Cove Drive... The contractor is revising the handicapped ramps to meet ADA  (American Disabilities Act) requirements; a number of the ramps are being re-located and will feature a different design to meet the specs that the ramps meet the roadway at grade. Engineers from the Public Works Department walked the site February 9-10 to begin construction of the Punch List.  Custom length "sleeves" will be installed in the defective pipe (to remedy the leak/moisture issue revealed by video) on two sections of Tide Mark Cove; work will be completed on the drainage line at the east end of Channel Place, running north to the bay.  Update 03/04/15... The final layer of asphalt that will complete this project is expected in mid-April.
  • Churchill Avenue... Work to reduce erosion and stabilize the roadway is expected to begin the week of Feb. 23
  • Enclave, Bay Pointe, River Place... Orange markups on concrete panels/road will be replaced in the near future; the city is waiting on completed paperwork from the contractor
  • Enclave and Pass Pointe Apartments... Drawings are expected to be available soon on the drainage project planned in that area, Petit Bois Drainage, Phase II
  • Switzer Drive sidewalk project... New sidewalk along Switzer Drive connecting DeBuys Road to Eisenhower Drive, to include sidewalk up to the railroad tracks... the city is still waiting on MDOT approval
  • Sidewalk along Old Bay Road by Penzoil Park... trees are an issue since they are so close to the roadway, south side... will likely tie into the park walking track on the east end/Churchill and the west eng/Hampton Lane
  • Park View lift station... still waiting on the contractor to complete the insurance paperwork for the city's files
  • The city council tabled the proposed revision to the Land Development Ordinance (LDO) that would create a Tree Committee.  The general feeling is that  a representative of the committee should be a participating member of the Development Review Committee that initially hears development proposals planned in the city
