Sidewalk and Bike Paths Update
Slowly but surely Waveland is making the city more pedestrian friendly. I have a few recent sidewalk project updates that I can provide.
At the September 5th Board meeting the city of Waveland preliminarily approved the contract for the Nicholson Avenue Pedestrian Improvements Project. This project is slated to be funded by MDOT in fiscal year 2019. The project will consist of resurfacing, restriping and to include widened shoulders of road to allow for bicycle and pedestrian access on Nicholson Avenue from Highway 90 to the CSX railroad crossing.
At the September 20th Board meeting, the city of Waveland took action to authorize a local engineering to begin a city-wide sidewalk study. The purpose of the study is to identify and develop the most effective plan to address sidewalk connection throughout Waveland. This study will give Waveland professional recommendations and cost-benefit analysis on how to precede further developing Waveland’s sidewalk corridors.
New Building Inspector
Next time you call for an inspection for your construction project in Waveland you will see a new face. Waveland has hired Josh Hayes as Waveland building inspector. Josh is a knowledgeable and experienced certified building inspector and will be an excellent addition to the building department team.
