16th Street Project Moves Forward
It will be a long road, to finishing a road in Northwest Gainesville.
County Commissioners voted last week to move forward with plans to narrow Northwest 16th and 23rd Avenue. The plan also includes 10 foot sidewalks and an unofficial 3 foot bike path.
But the plan is far from final.
County Spokesperson Mark Sexton said, "One of the first milestones is approving the 30 percent plan. That hasn't happened yet. They've given public works some direction based on all the public input and their own ideas on this project...so at the next county commission meeting, the next milestone will be to approve the 30 percent plans."
The current plan has met support and opposition in the community. Sexton said public meetings have been held for the last year and public input will be considered throughout each phase of the planning process.
