The Conway City Council will discuss amendments to the Conway subdivision ordinance, two board nominations and engineering firms for Street and Engineering Department on-call services during its regular meeting Tuesday.
The meeting, which begins at 6:30 p.m. in the Russell L. “Jack” Roberts District Court building, is open to the public and will not be preceded by a committee meeting.
The proposed amendments to the subdivision ordinance are “an attempt … to comply with the complete streets ordinance,” Street and Engineering Director Finley Vinson said in a memo to Mayor Bart Castleberry.
“This amendment removes several specific street construction requirements and instead refers to the City of Conway Standard Details for Roadway & Drainage Construction,” Vinson wrote.
The city’s Bicycle and Pedestrian Advisory Board (PBAB) reviewed cross sections of streets as part of proposed master street plan amendments and made recommendations, according to documents included in the agenda packet.
BPAB Chair Peter Mehl wrote in an email to the mayor on April 27: “We think these context sensitive cross sections will serve the city well as it moves to become increasing[ly] pedestrian and bicycle friendly.”
Aldermen will also consider nominations for Kim Williams to the Public Art Board and Ester McClellan to the Advertising and Promotion Commission and engineering firms for on-call services to the street department.
