People reviewing budgets plansDuring the 5/20/20 meeting council members approved for monies from the Capital Improvement Project Budget to be transferred to their respective individual accounts for cost tracking purposes. The projects, which have been previously approved for funding are listed below:

Bonita Drive improvements: Construction of a multi-use path on the south side of Bonita Drive from Old US 41 to Streetsboro Lane is needed as there are no pedestrian facilities along Bonita Drive, which has a high volume of bicyclists and pedestrians that traverse the corridor. This project includes construction of Pedestrian Crossing Refuge and Rapidly Reflecting Beacons on Old 41 as well as landscaping. Project design and the permit process are complete. This project requires a budget of $980,000, which is available in the Multi-use Path and Sidewalk budget.

Cockleshell Road improvements: Extend existing Cockleshell Sidewalk 1,300 LF from Glen Heron Drive to Shangri-La Road. This connection will provide, in conjunction with the Maddox Lane Sidewalk CIP, a contiguous sidewalk network between Cockleshell Road, Maddox Lane, Paradise Road, and Shangri-La Road. This project requires a budget of $134,153, which is available in the Multi-use Path and Sidewalk budget.

Imperial Shores Drive improvements: Construction of an 8 FT wide sidewalk with curb & gutter and associative drainage along Imperial Shores Drive from Bonita Beach Road North to Tarpon Ave. Project design and permitting is complete. There are no pedestrian facilities along Imperial Shores Drive. The corridor has a high volume of pedestrians that walk alongside the roadway. This project requires a budget of $896,338, which is available in the Multi-use Path and Sidewalk budget.
