Update: August 1, 2016
Pine Street is scheduled for construction in 2018. At this point in time staff is working on securing funding for the project; the City has about 75% of the estimated $2.2M secured. This includes funding from the Cascade School District, a commitment for construction from the Pinegrass Development, and Federal Funding awarded from the Chelan Douglas Transportation Council (CDTC). The City will be submitting a Transportation Improvement Board (TIB) grant application for the remaining dollars needed this month. In terms of progress, the City is in the process of selecting an Engineering firm to complete the plans and specifications; this step is required because of the federal funding awarded to the City. Once completed, the City will initiate the public discussion on the final design. Pine Street is in bad condition and it is overdue in needing attention; however, it is a large project and the City needs to tap a number of funding sources.
