VOTING IS COMPLETE - FIVE PROJECTS SELECTED
In March 2009, Crossroads residents voted for their favorite Neighborhood Enhancement (NEP) projects. Here are the results.
Crossroads residents initially identified a total of $819,000 worth of eligible projects, for which $480,000 is available. In order to prioritize these proposals, ballots were mailed to over 5,600 households. 515 households returned ballots with their preferred projects indicated. Below, you will find the list of those proposed projects that will receive funding as a result of the vote, as well as those projects that cannot be funded. The voting results, project descriptions, cost estimates, and project managers are listed for the funded projects.
Five of the eight proposed projects will be funded. These five projects have a total estimated cost of $480,000. However, this means reducing the scope of one project. The first four priority projects can be funded. There are not enough funds to include the fifth priority project; additional amenities at the Crossroads Pea Patch. The next project on the list, the barrier-free walkway from Woodside East Apartments to Crossroads Park, is more than can be funded within the allocation. However, it has been determined that reducing the scope of the project can occur while still meeting the goal of the project. Therefore the top four projects, plus the sixth priority project at a reduced cost will be funded.
Now it’s time to wrap up this phase of Neighborhood Enhancement and move into the next phase — implementation of the projects selected. Once again, we invite you to play an active role by contacting the project managers to provide input, tracking the status of these and other projects on the city’s website, or just coming out to enjoy the projects!
