City en­gi­neer to ad­dress neigh­bor­hood as­so­ci­a­tion

The Sentinel-Record - - LIFESTYLES -

Hot Springs City En­gi­neer Gary Car­na­han will be the guest speaker at a spe­cial meet­ing of Whit­ting­ton Val­ley Neigh­bor­hood As­so­ci­a­tion at 6:30 p.m. Mon­day at First Pres­by­te­rian Church, 213 Whit­ting­ton Ave.

Light re­fresh­ments will be served. The meet­ing is open to the pub­lic. Call WVNA Pres­i­dent Mark A. Toth at 623-4283 for more in­for­ma­tion. Car­na­han will present pre­lim­i­nary de­signs for road, side­walk and bike path im­prove­ments along Whit­ting­ton Av­enue that the city in­tends to com­plete in 2019. Uti­liz­ing mon­eys from the Fed­eral Land Ac­cess Pro­gram, the city of Hot Springs pro­poses to com­plete more than $850,000 in in­fra­struc­ture im­prove­ments in the Whit­ting­ton Val­ley, the as­so­ci­a­tion said in a news re­lease.

Plans call for the in­stal­la­tion of safe pedes­trian and bi­cy­cle con­nec­tions run­ning the full length of Whit­ting­ton Av­enue, from the in­ter­sec­tion with Cen­tral and Park Av­enues to Base­ball Trail Park. Traf­fic calm­ing el­e­ments, in­tended to re­duce ve­hi­cle speed, are also in­cluded among the pro­posed im­prove­ments.

This meet­ing will af­ford Val­ley res­i­dents, stake­hold­ers and the gen­eral pub­lic the op­por­tu­nity to com­ment on and ad­vance re­vi­sions to the pro­posed im­prove­ments be­fore the de­sign plan is fi­nal­ized.

Other top­ics to be dis­cussed in­clude plan­ning for the As­so­ci­a­tion’s up­com­ing Christ­mas party.
