Utility relocations have begun on this project while the right-of-way phase continues. Out of 21 total parcels, 15 negotiations are clear, with 3 rights of entry. Of the 6 parcels still pending, two will be cleared within two weeks. Negotiations with City are still ongoing to obtain a right of entry for utility relocations in that area. SWM committee has developed a master planting list for both City and County portions. Roadway landscape plans are under review by County staff. Comments are anticipated back from County by mid-March.
