Sonora, CA – This coming Monday, the Sonora City Council will consider improvement plans for a main downtown road and discuss aspects related to Vision Sonora.
The agenda notes that the council is scheduled to hear from downtown business owner Ed Parsons, of Main Street Shop, who will present a petition with signatures of those opposing Vision Sonora projects. He will share his views why he is against the efforts.
Also related to Vision Sonora, the council is scheduled to discuss whether to seek funding for projects through potential state and federal revenue sources; notably, federal Congestion Mitigation and Air Quality Improvement (CMAQ) highway funding and state Active Transportation Program (ATP) grants. In related action, the council will discuss a possible property acquisition for a park and ride lot.
In other new business items, the council looks to approve plans and authorize a call for bids on the city’s South Washington Street Overlay Project, which has been in the works for some time. It also seeks to move forward and begin the bid call process for Sonora’s Residential Fire Flow Improvement Project.
Also under consideration is a resolution to establish reimbursement rates for fire department response from the State of California Office of Emergency Services. The council will also present a certificate honoring Levi Lowe, who recently won the Poetry Out Loud Competition State Championship.
The meeting will begin at 5 p.m. at City Hall (94 North Washington St.).
