Williamsburg City Council Community Meeting Minutes

Mayor Sandersfeld called the meeting to order at 6:00 p.m. noted council members McMann, Grier, and Marshall were present. Council member Tornholm & Zalenski were not in attendance. Also, present was Public Works Director Brain Portwood and City Clerk Nicole Osweiler.

Mayor Sandersfeld gave a brief introduction about the project along with introducing Troy Culver and Cindy Spencer from Snyder and Associates.

Culver and Spencer discussed starting at the west end of Oak Street with overlaying it due to the recent improvements that had been done on it. The rest of the construction would include: widening, grading, updating utilities and adding sidewalk. Details for the listed improvements is all pending community feedback, cost and council input. Majority of the work will take place in 2020 due to other utility companies moving services underground this year. West End pond improvements options will be determined once the testing on the pond has been completed; options to date include deepening the pond, adding sidewalk and placing a retainage wall. Chatham and Elm Street will be designed but may not be completed with this project pending funds. A discussion took place in regards to a possible one-way street due to how narrow the section is or having to acquire more right of way to widen it. Temporary easements will have to be obtained for some of the construction process; which will be handled with the city attorney and property owners affected. Realignment of streets will try to be done during this project, too.

The property owner’s in attendance inquired about access to their properties, how it would affect their driveways, time frame they will be given prior to impacting their property and how they will be notified and/or kept up to date on the project. Culver and Spencer informed the owner’s they should always have access to their property in some way and most inconvenience should only take up to a week. Notifications will be distributed by the contractors either verbally or through written communication with at least three or more days of notices prior to work. There will be access for emergency vehicles at all times. The city will try to keep updates on the project posted similar to how Circle Terrace was handled.

All those in attendance were given comment sheets to fill out and return; the comments will help Snyder and Associates with their proposed final design draft. The council will review the draft and hold another meeting with the property owners to go over more details of the project.

Meeting adjourned at 7:35 p.m. The council will meet next for their regular scheduled council meeting April 22, 2019, at 6:30 p.m. in Williamsburg City Hall.
