Discussion Items

  • Update on the E. Barlow Road, Terex Road and Hudson Industrial Parkway Intersection Study.  

A study was performed to look at a short-term solution for this offset intersection. Follow up on previous study, didn’t look at long-term solutions. Looking for single best solution. Improve safety, limit private property impact, limit impact to traffic pattern. Four possible recommendations:

  1. Alternative 2C: 4-leg Roundabout by realignment of Barlow Road & Industrial Parkway (15),
  2. Alternative 4B: 4-leg intersection by realignment of Barlow Road & Industrial Parkway (15),
  3. Alternative 2D: 3-leg Roundabout at Industrial Parkway & Cul-de-sac Barlow Road (13)
  4. Alternative 4A: 4-leg intersection by realignment of Barlow Road only (13).

These options will be studied further and that information will be presented to Council before a decision is made.

  • Update on the Downtown Pedestrian Safety Study.

Staff provided a follow up on the pedestrian safety study This study focuses on SR 91, SR 303, Aurora Street and First and Main area. This is Phase I of the study process. The goal is to improve bicycle/pedestrian safety, increase ADA compliance, and encourage people to walk in the area. The next phase is a public input process. Then the citizen input and study information will be put into a final recommendation. We also will seek safety funds from ODOT for the final project.

  • Discussion of the City’s current mailbox damage policy reimbursement amount.

Council discussed the current mailbox reimbursement policy. Council directed staff to increase the reimbursement from $100 to $200. Council also asked staff to come back with information on the costs and how the City could provide and install mailbox for individuals who physically cannot replace their mailbox themselves.
