Whipple Creek Park Trail Naming – Jay Small

Troy Pierce, Project Manager, Clark County Public Works
Troy, with maps, explained what was going on with the 10th Street Bridge. Project will start this year. Construction split into two parts: NE 154th to NE 164th which includes bridge will start in spring/summer of 2017 and finish in fall 2018. Bridge will be 450 ft long, with two lanes, bike and sidewalks on both sides of bridge.
Construction of second part from NE 149th to NE 154th Street, is scheduled to start in 2020.
Troy and Jeff Mize took questions from group. Many questions centered around traffic congestion during and after construction; traffic control at intersections of 10th and 154th; truck traffic on 10th.
Jeff Mize provided information on Public Works activities during the 2017 big storm.
Potholes – call 397-2446 to report potholes. Jeff directed residents to County website to view winter road map, which shows priority for clearing major roads. County does not have resources to do neighborhoods and side streets, since County has 2500 lane miles to cover.
County ordinance requires residents to “maintain sidewalks” but “maintain” is up for debate and no enforcement during these big storms.
County used “salt brine” during last storm. It was recommended to get car washed after each big storm. “Downed” trees and limbs in neighborhood are residents responsibility.
Jeff said County welcomes feedback on the process County uses to handle large storms and snowfall.
Elections. It was proposed, seconded and approved, to move elections to March general meeting due to low attendance.
Thanks to the Salmon Creek Farmers Market for providing Subway sandwiches, Starbucks for the coffee and Riverview Community Bank for use of their branch for our general meetings.
Meeting adjourned at approximately 8:30 pm
Respectfully submitted by co-Secretary Fiona Humphrey.
Next General Meeting March 28, 2017.
