BRICKELLTOWN STREETSCAPE IMPROVEMENT PROJECT
The Town has been working on improvements within the Brickelltown area for many years. In 2012, the Town re-engaged property owners and design services for evaluating preferred design and maintenance district concepts for the Brickelltown Streetscape Improvement project. Through the establishment of the Community Facilities District (CFD), property owners and possessory owners would be required to pay a special tax, based on property frontages, for continued maintenance on the streetscape improvements. The estimated total maintenance cost of the district is $64,338.94 annually. Formation of this CFD is dependent on a vote by the potential members of the CFD. Ballots were mailed or delivered to all property and possessory interest owners within the CFD District in January.
At the Town Council meeting on March 11, 2014, the final ballot count for the Brickelltown Community Facilities District was completed. In order to form the CFD, a 66% affirmative vote was required out of all the received votes. The final result showed that 86.4% of the votes cast were in favor of forming a CFD and the Council moved to form the CFD. With the affirmative vote, staff will continue to move forward with the design team and property owners to complete the design for Phase I of the streetscape plan. Phase I includes improvements on the corner of Jibboom Street and Spring Street and the north and south sides of Donner Pass Road, east of High Camp Home and Marg’s Taco Bistro. Construction is anticipated to begin in summer 2014.
