When the Sheldon City Council meets in regular session Wednesday January 2nd, they will again find the Downtown Infrastructure project on the agenda. The project, commonly known, as ‘Streetscape’ would result in full reconstruction of Ninth Street from Second to fifth Avenue and Third Avenue from Eighth to Tenth Street, including the intersections. The total estimated cost for the project is 1.5 million dollars. The council has indicated they would expect property owners to pay about two hundred seventy thousand dollars of that cost through sidewalk assessments as well as curb and gutter assessments.
In other business, the council will discuss the Sheldon Crossing Community Park project. This would include the development of lots, street access and related infrastructure for the area located directly East of the homes along Country Club Road. The council will be presented with a proposal for the work to be done in three phases. Phase one would develop nineteen single-family lots. Phase two would add twenty-two single-family lots. Phase three would add sixteen more single family lots plus lots for three multi-family units and a commercial building area. The council will also consider a memorandum of understanding with Northwest Iowa Community College.
Wednesday’s meeting begins at 4:30 in the upper level of the Sheldon Community Services Center.
