• 38 miles of our worst streets remain to be done over the next six years; in order to do this, however, the planned $2.8 million each year for the next five years and $1.8 million for the sixth year must be continued. After that, the city would be able to focus on a yearly resurfacing and maintenance plan with the goal of maintaining streets, rather than having to repair them.
• Discovery Trail — In addition to the streets in (c) the Discovery Trail was also resurfaced. Lights and security cameras were installed in the interest of safety for users of the trail. For the convenience of dog owners, waste stations with plastic bags were placed at various points on the Trail, Riverview Drive, and at the dog park.
• 4th Street viaduct pavement was reconstructed to handle the heavy truck traffic over the coming ten year period, and will be maintained as needed through and possibly beyond that length of time.
• New Jib crane approved for faster reaction in placing or removing flood gates as needed, rather than using large traveling commercial equipment which was destructive to the Discovery Trail surface
• The airport is building a long-needed new hanger and terminal this year. These improvements are funded to a major extent by grants. Our several large corporate operations frequently fly management in using their corporate jets to our airport, and need adequate landing, fueling, and overnight storage for their planes.
• The Marina storage facility was enclosed with security fencing and cameras to provide better security for expensive boats stored there through the non-boating months. There are plans for added boat slips to accommodate boat owners on a waiting list for seasonal slip rental.
• Three new pads for RVs will be installed in the RV park this season. This will use the remaining space for the RV park as it is currently designed.
