The crew will install 880 feet of new sidewalk on the east side of Starr Drive from the existing sidewalk to St. Joseph School.
Why is it important?
This will provide a safe walking path for children and parents to St. Joseph School and will complete a connection to the sidewalk on Mission Boulevard.
What is the current status?
This project is scheduled for 2016.
How is this project being funded?
Funding for this project comes from the Street Fund. The Street Fund is financed through two sources:
1) Turn-back revenues from the State of Arkansas. The State collects motor fuel taxes, which are returned to the City on a per-capita basis.
2) Turn-back monies received from the County Road Millage Tax. The City receives 80% of the road millage levied by the Quorum Court on real and personal property located within the city.
