Golden Valley Construction Coming

Well you wouldn’t know it’s a recession in Golden Valley and you won’t get any kind of break with road construction. No way! From the Golden Valley Patch;

This year Golden Valley’s Pavement Management Program (PMP) willreconstruct 1.9 miles of City streets, including concrete curb and gutter. Approximately one-half mile due for reconstruction is a Municipal State Aid road. The project will also address any necessary repairs to the storm water, water, and sanitary sewer systems.

Yes a “state aid road.” That’s the “free money” from the state.

Reconstruction projects will occur in several areas:

• Turner’s Crossroad between I-394 and Circle Down
• Circle Down north of I-394 and east of Turner’s Crossroad
• King Hill Rd and King Creek Rd south of Glenwood Ave
• Welcome Ave, Welcome Circle, and Phoenix St south of Golden Valley Rd and west of Hwy 100
• Harold Ave between Glenwood Ave and Winnetka Ave
• Rhode Island Ave N north of Harold Ave

The City begins preliminary survey and design work and meets with affected property owners at least one year before a proposed project is presented to the City Council at a public hearing. The City sends public hearing notices to each resident along streets being considered for rehabilitation at least 10 days before the hearing.

The 2012 PMP project was designed at the same time as the 2011 PMP, and a
public hearing for both projects was held in November 2010. The City bid the 2012 PMP in January 2012. Work is expected to start in April or May 2012. Residents that live in the PMP areas will receive regular construction updates (Construction News) from the City. 

So then what is the point of a public hearing? Sounds like a decision has already been made.
