The City of Sturgeon Bay is moving ahead with its long-range program to deal with water runoff and pedestrian needs in the area of Egg Harbor Road and 14th Avenue. On Tuesday, the city council will be asked to award a contract for the development of preliminary plans for the pedestrian improvements and storm water management of the Egg Harbor Road corridor from 8th Avenue to Alabama Street. The Planning will include storm sewers, detention ponds, curb and gutter and sidewalks. Requests for proposals were sent to 10 engineering firms and 3 were interviewed. The recommendation calls for the joint proposal of Baudhuin, Inc. and Donohue Engineering to be selected for the project.
The city’s 2012 capital budget includes a line item of $65,000 for Egg Harbor Road improvements/design. In addition, the developer agreement with Wal-Mart requires the retailer to fund $96,000 for the expansion of the sidewalk system on Egg Harbor Road.
If the recommendation is approved by the city council Tuesday, a final scope of services through the preliminary design phase, including the application for grants, from state and federal programs, will be completed
