Street Resurfacing Planned for Cooper in 2013

Streets in portions of the Cooper neighborhood (see project map below) will be resurfaced in 2013. Resurfacing removes part of the pavement surface and places a new layer of asphalt over the entire street surface.  The work typically takes 2 days for a given stretch of street, one day for pavement removal and a second day for asphalt placement. There will be an assessment associated with the project, which will appear on property tax bills paid in 2014. The assessment rate is $0.20 per lot square foot for residential properties. For a 5,000 SF lot, the assessment would be $1,000. The City will coordinate mailings and a public hearing regarding the project in late Spring or early Summer. FFI contact Spencer.
