Sheldon Council to Discuss ‘Bumpouts’ And More At Today’s (Wednesday) Meeting

Date posted - February 5, 2013

community services center 300pxSheldon, Iowa — The proposed Downtown Infrastructure Project will again be discussed at this afternoon’s Sheldon City Council meeting.  At a recent meeting the council addressed the value of the ‘bump-outs’ which are in the plans for downtown intersections.   At that meeting it was revealed that with these ‘bump-outs’ the downtown would lose 22 parking spaces.  The representative of the engineering company said he felt they would provide better safety for pedestrians and better sidewalk access for the handicapped. When asked if they could be made smaller he said he would come back to the meeting this week with more ideas. In other business the Council will discuss a proposed Recreation Trail along Country Club Road, consider a possible increase in zoning permit fees, and consider an agreement with the Iowa Department of Transportation for the Country Club Road and East 9th Street project.  They will also set the date for two public hearings.  One will be to consider the Plat for the Trilogy Development and the other will be a hearing on the budget for the next fiscal year. This afternoon’s meeting begins at 4:30 in the upper level of the Sheldon Community Services Center.
