Storm Drainage Improvements Project
This project involves the repair and improvement of the City’s drainage infrastructure around Guadalupe and 5th Avenue. The current drainage line is located on private property and is maintained by the City. Accessing private property for proper maintenance is often limited and poses difficulties. This project re-routes the existing storm drain away from private property and onto City property for proper maintenance and to prevent flooding.
This project involves: 1) the installation of a new storm drain on 5th Avenue between Guadalupe Street and Torres Street, which includes the paving of 5th Avenue, 2) the installation of a new storm drain on Guadalupe Street from the south side of 4th Avenue mid-block to Guadalupe Street and 5th Avenue, and 3) the installation of a new storm drain from Carpenter Street between 4th and 5th Avenues to the south side of 4th Avenue between Carpenter and Guadalupe Streets.
City Geographic Information System
This project involves the development of a Geographic Information System (GIS) framework and online web tool. GIS is a framework for organizing and analyzing spatial data. It is a powerful tool to help identify patterns, change over time, to support asset management and decision-making. There are many potential uses for GIS, including identifying locations of utilities and other City assets for project planning purposes, sharing information with development applicants on City zoning and special districts, managing our urban forest, etc. It is anticipated that the first phase of development of the City’s online GIS tool will be completed in December 2018.
