City of Bishop: Sidewalks Open House

The City of Bishop will hold an open house on 17 January 2017 to discuss the Spruce, Hanby, Yaney Sidewalks project. This project is proposed to construct sidewalks and bike lanes on streets in and near the back of the Bishop City Park. The open house will build on input and discussion at the first open house held on the project last month, particularly concerning potential environmental impacts of the project.

The $1.2 million project would construct sidewalks and bike lanes on Spruce Street, Hanby Avenue, and East Yaney Street in and adjacent to the City Park. In addition to sidewalks and bike lanes, the project would extend the existing paved path near the community garden (the Pine to Park Path) to the new sidewalk proposed for Hanby Avenue. The project is funded through the state with gas tax funds. A map of the initial project details is available on the city web page http://www.cityofbishop.com/departments/public- works/street-projects/

The open house will be from 6 pm to 8 pm in the conference room in City Hall, 377 West Line Street in Bishop. City and consultant staff involved in the project will be available during the open house to provide information about the environmental studies for the project and to receive public input. Members of the public are encouraged to drop by anytime between 6 pm and 8 pm Tuesday, 17 January.

Environmental studies for the project are underway and it is important that all potential project impacts to the environment and to people are identified now so they can be properly addressed or avoided from the start. Now is the time to provide input and identify potential project issues.
