CRA SIDEWALK REPAIRS

SUMMARY:

                                          

The Mott McDonald ADA Sidewalk Survey evaluated sidewalks citywide.  Sidewalks were classified by priority based on condition, safety, and level of ADA accessibility.  Based on the study, a schedule for repair/replacement of defective sidewalks and installation of ADA improvements was developed by the City of Pensacola (City).  The complete sidewalk prioritization list may be found at <https://www.cityofpensacola.com/DocumentCenter/View/16847/Current-ADA-Sidewalk-Prioritization-list-PDF>

 

Except for sidewalks within the Community Redevelopment Area (CRA), sidewalks improvements identified in the survey were placed on the City’s capital project schedule.  Construction of these sidewalk projects is being undertaken in phases.

 

A separate but parallel schedule for improvement of sidewalks within the CRA districts has also been established.  CRA sidewalks are being addressed in the same phased fashion as other City sidewalks, based on the prioritization given them by the sidewalk survey.  Funding for improvement of sidewalks within the CRA is being budgeted annually from the CRA Tax Increment to complete these projects. 

 

Recently, a request was received for the repair of a section of sidewalk, on Church Street, in the historic village.  This section of the Church Street sidewalk was assessed in the sidewalk survey and assigned a meta score of 75.  With a high meta score and short section (5 feet), this location is currently identified for inclusion in one of the later CRA Urban Core projects.
