This project proposes to reconstruct Park Drive, Park Court and Sonia Way from Miramonte Avenue to Castro Street (see Exhibit A). The work includes replacing the existing roadway pavement, curb, gutter, sidewalk, and the aged traffic signal at Sonia Way and Miramonte Avenue intersection. 

On January 5, 2022 staff mailed 144 letters to the residents and property owners on Park Drive, Park Court and Sonia Way informing them of the Pavement and Sidewalk Reconstruction Project in their neighborhood. Staff included a postage-prepaid postcard survey that asked their preference between replacing the current rolled curb with either vertical curb or rolled curb. The City has received 35 responses representing 24% of mailings. Results of the survey are that the majority of respondents (18) prefer to replace the current rolled curb with new vertical curb. Staff will redesign the project and anticipate to complete it by winter 2023.
