Several city streets will be getting a face lift next year as part of a $1-million resurfacing project approved by the City Council.
All streets north of Malvern Avenue, with the exception of Durango Drive and streets in the area that were fixed last year, are targeted for the repaving, curb and gutter work, city officials said.
Although in need of repair, Durango Drive will be left out because some of its surrounding property, including damaged sidewalks and curbs, is owned by the local homeowners’ association, said Don Jensen, the city’s director of engineering services.
Jensen said the city will be meeting with the association to work out a plan to share costs. However, it remains uncertain whether the association will have the “financial means to complete it.”
Repair work is scheduled to begin in January and be finished by the end of March. The Malvern project marks the end of a 16-year citywide resurfacing program.
