At tonight’s meeting, the Council approved the construction funding for the Cherokee street sidewalk.

Design plans for the construction of sidewalks along the north side of Cherokee Street between 48th Place and Rhode Island Avenue were completed by RK&K in the summer of 2021.

The work will take place within the existing right-of-way, and City staff and the consultant worked with adjoining residents to address the reconstruction of driveway aprons and landscaping.

At tonight’s meeting, the Council awarded a contract amendment to NZI Construction Corporation for Cherokee Street sidewalk construction in the amount of $138,537.

According to staff, teh construction will start soon and will take about a month to complete.
