City of Bishop: Spruce, Yaney, Hanby Sidewalks Environmental Review

Public Works News Release
Spruce, Yaney, Hanby Sidewalks Environmental Review


Formal public review is underway on the environmental document for the City of Bishop Spruce, Yaney, Hanby Sidewalks project. Comments on the document are due 24 April 2017 and a public hearing is tentatively planned for the City Council meeting at 6 pm that evening.

The Spruce, Hanby, Yaney Sidewalks project is proposed to construct sidewalks and bike lanes on streets in and near the back of the Bishop City Park. 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. The particular funds used for this project are dedicated to bike and pedestrian improvements and can only be used for those purposes. A more complete description of the project is included in the environmental document or is available from city staff.

The environmental document is available at City Hall and on the city website at http://www.cityofbishop.com/departments/planning/environmental-documents/ The environmental document for the project identifies and evaluates potential impacts the project could have on the natural and human environment and proposes mitigations. All comments are welcome.
