Citizen panel will review construction impacts of plan to fortify Belvedere's roadways
Belvedere will ask a group of residents to review potential construction impacts outlined in the forthcoming draft environmental report for the city’s planned multimillion-dollar roadway-and-seawall fortification project.
The City Council at its Aug. 8 teleconference meeting unanimously approved the creation of a seven-member citizens advisory committee to analyze the draft’s findings related to the Protect Belvedere Project’s construction impacts on traffic, noise, dust and more once the document is made public in September — just ahead of the Nov. 8 election. The group will then provide a summary of its comments to the council.
Members were expected to be appointed this week by Mayor Sally Wilkinson and will include a mix of residents likely to face direct construction impacts from the project as well as those with experience in building and construction. One councilmember will serve as a nonvoting liaison.
