Overall Project Completion

  • Design Planning

    The Transportation Resource Advisory Forum for Carson City (TRAFCC) was created in order to give Carson City staff and the public a forum to discuss local transportation issues and also to educate the community about current and upcoming transportation projects. On September 22, 2016, TRAFCC was invited to attend a public planning meeting regarding the South Carson Street Corridor Study. The South Carson Street Complete Streets Corridor Study has evaluated two and a half miles of South Carson Street for conceptual design alternatives.

  • 60% Design

    The 60% design plans were completed in February. This is an exciting milestone, as the project design has started to transform from a conceptual design to a more refined and detailed project design. A thorough review of the project plans, as well as construct-ability and value engineering reviews will take place over the next month by the project team. Staff will present the 60% design at the March 13th RTC meeting with subsequent presentations at RACC and BOS meetings in April. Another public meeting/workshop is planned to be held in April (more details to come on this meeting in March).

    Design Options Presented

    On December 3, City staff presented the design at a joint meeting with the Redevelopment Authority Citizens Committee (RACC) and Historic Resources Commission (HRC). The purpose of the presentation was to provide an update on the design of the South Carson Complete Streets Project. The Redevelopment Authority has authorized $200,000 from the Redevelopment Fund to assist in the construction of the project, including project enhancements such as landscaping, benches and other streetscape features. Staff presented conceptual designs to the Board of Supervisors on December 20, 2018. January 10, 2019 City staff met with the Historic Resources Commission and discussed any impacts that the project may have on historical and/or cultural resources. The HRC supported the project and did not anticipate any major impacts to these valuable resources. Staff has hired a consultant to further investigate and complete the appropriate environmental and historical/cultural studies.

    Over the next two months, the project team will continue with the final refinement of the project’s design, as well as start to shift the focus to the planning and phasing of the project construction. Staff will present the 90% design at the August 5th Redevelopment Authority Citizens Committee meeting with subsequent presentations at the Regional Transportation Commission meeting on August 14th and the Board of Supervisors meeting on August 15th. Additionally, the project team plans to hold another public meeting in November or December to discuss the construction process and schedule for the public and businesses along the corridor (more details to come this fall).

Description
PUBLIC MEETING #1 As part of the project, public outreach was critical to identifying a community-preferred cross section for South Carson Street. The purpose of the first public meeting was to obtain information on the types of improvements that the community would like to see along the corridor. The first public meeting was on Thursday, September 22, 2016, from 5:00 PM to 7:00 PM at Fuji Park.
PUBLIC MEETING #2 After the cross section alternatives were developed, a second public meeting was conducted. The second public meeting was held on Wednesday, March 1, 2017, at the Carson City Community Center. In addition to traditional methods of notifying the community about the meeting, CAMPO mailed information to those along the corridor, and distributed information to businesses along the corridor.
PUBLIC MEETING #3 The meeting was Tuesday, December 11, 2018, from 4:30 p.m. to 7:00 p.m. at the Carson City Sheriff’s Office Ormsby Room. The meeting included a presentation on the South Carson Street 30% preliminary design plans, project schedule, and discuss various communication tools for the public to stay connected during the design and construction process. The public used the opportunity to provide input on the development of the South Carson Street corridor.
PUBLIC MEETING #4 The project team plans to hold another public meeting in November or December to discuss the construction process and schedule for the public and businesses along the corridor (more details to come this fall).
