Cache Creek Council received detailed drawings for the Maclean Crescent reconstruction project, and there will be a public feedback session on Wednesday, May 21 from 4:30-5:30.

Engineer Pam Astbury from McElhanney & Associates presented the plans to Council, explaining that the sidewalk had been added to the shorter side of the street (north and west), and the curb and gutter had been added.

Each driveway in the cresent was inspected and the new grades, if any, determined after the centre line was added to street. “We want to make sure there’s no surprises as we go along,” she told Council.

Mayor John Ranta asked if there were any major problems for the residents.

Astbury said one home in particular might end up with a steeper section of driveway unless they cut away some of the cement that is on the Village’s right of way.

Administrator Dan Plamondon said he wanted to have the contract documents completed by summer so project could get started in the fall.

The public feedback session is open to all residents of Cache Creek.
