The Transportation Benefit District (TBD) Board and the City Council on Monday approved 2012 TBD program recommendations made by the Citizens’ Transportation Advisory Board (CTAB).
The 2012 projects will be the first to be done under the TBD, which was created to fund street maintenance and pedestrian improvements, and is funded through a $20 vehicle license tab fee.
Approximately $2.5 million in revenues generated from the fees during the 12 months ending August 2012 will be used to pay for the projects approved for the 2012 construction season. 2012 projects include:
• Five grind and overlay projects on arterial streets.
• Three grind and overlay projects on residential streets
• Three chip seal projects on residential streets
• Investment in the residential crack seal program, resulting in approximately 300,000 linear feet sealed.
• Recommendations for implementing the Pedestrian Program of the TBD.
