The City is in the process of advertising for construction of a commercial roadway corridor which will connect State Route 20 (Sims Way) and Discovery Road. The commercial corridor goes through un-developed commercial land. The soils within this commercial corridor are poor draining. In order to allow for the desired density of commercial development, the City is proposing installation a of a regional stormwater facility. The stormwater facility would be for both the private commercial development properties, as well as being sized to handle the run off from the City rights-of-way located within the benefit area.
The project entails constructing a regional stormwater facility to benefit a mostly undeveloped commercial area, located north of the Howard Street roundabout and State Route 20 (Sims Way) and a light manufacturing property, totaling approximately 33 acres, located south of the Howard Street roundabout and Sims Way. This benefit area includes private properties, as well as public rights-of-way. Please refer to the attached map to view the benefit area. The project also includes stormwater piping, trail improvements and connection to an existing stormwater pond.
