Neighborhood Streets Program
PBOT-In Spring 2016 the City adopted the Local Transportation Infrastructure Charge (LTIC), a charge on new infill development occurring on these streets in single-dwelling residential zones. Based on community input, the Neighborhood Streets program framework has been developed to include additional program elements to further address deficient neighborhood streets infrastructure. Proposed elements are:
- Ongoing maintenance of gravel streets
- Neighborhood collector enhancements
- Residential Local Investment District (LID) enhancements
-Neighborhood Streets Program- Oct 2017 Powerpoint
