B. Approval for Earth Resources Corporation (ERC) to perform Sunday and night work on Carleton Street and the Montezuma Street alleyway between Carleton and Goodwin Streets, 6:00 p.m. to 6:00 a.m. between October 6 and October 14, 2018.
Phil Goode had this pulled, and notes that he is concerned that the notification for this project is not being done properly. He thinks business owners could be damaged by the project. It's for the alleyway parallel to Montezuma from Carleton to Goodwin, next to the Mile High Football field.
The City is the financial agent for this project, a grant received by Safe Routes to School. The alley will become a one-way street.
This grant is from 2009.
Staff approved the one-way route heading Northbound.
Ian Mattingly said he personally talked to the owners for the alley. They hit a gas line - this is actually an ADOT contract with ERC.
"I'm here today, we're in process," Mattingly said. ADOT will continue the project, it will take place during the day if the nightwork is not approved, Mattingly added.
We'll try to do better, he said.
Lamerson asked if these improvements will make it safer for students. Mattingly said yes.
They will work day and night.
