Focusing on access to shopping, schools and other community needs, the CAB will look into a request from the Washoe County Public Works Department for input on potential bicycle and pedestrian projects within the Spanish Springs area. The board will look into making a list of possible locations for future projects that could be paid for by Transportation Equality Act funding, for which the county plans to apply. The CAB agenda indicates Washoe County intends to apply for $650,000, which would be dedicated to a number of projects segmented in sections of half a mile or less.
The CAB already has recommended installing a bike path in the Highland Ranch area.
Also on the agenda, there will be an update about projects to install a pedestrian crossing at Eagle Landing Shopping Center and at Lazy 5 Regional Park.
Going from person-propelled transportation, the CAB will also discuss the ongoing issue of driver safety at the intersection of Pyramid Way and Calle de la Plata. The board will look into options the community has to make improvements to the intersection. Projects could include the installation of a traffic signal.
The CAB will meet at 7 p.m. at the Lazy 5 Regional Park Community Center located at 7100 Pyramid Way in Spanish Springs.
