FROM: KACHEMAK DRIVE TRAIL COMMITTEE
DATE: OCTOBER 16, 2012
RE: THANK YOU FOR FUNDING AND REQUEST TO BE INCLUDED IN THE COMMUNICATIONS WITH THE SURVEYOR
Thank you to the Homer City Council for approving the resolution to allocate up to $20,000 from the HART fund for the purposes of survey work and an engineering estimate for the first half mile of the proposed Kachemak Drive Trail.
Kachemak Drive Trail Committee requests that the city inform and include this committee in communications with the surveyor, so that we can assist on the ground and in providing information as to where we’ve flagged out a possible pathway. We are available to do brush clearing, and chain saw work to assist the work of the surveyor. We are interested in who, when and how the survey work will be done. Our goal is to make the $20,000 go as far as possible by providing volunteer labor at every stage.
Plans, specifications and estimates should be developed with our input. We can provide the pre-engineering packet to the surveyor. We have done a lot of work and it should be shared. Using HOPP as our model, we need cost estimates to break out materials, equipment and labor, so that we can estimate cost savings from volunteer labor.
This committee supports Kevin Walker in his endeavor to provide input, receive information, and share expertise and in effect speak for this committee to the surveyor.
Included are our phone numbers for questions or concerns.
Kevin Walker 235-5304; Dave Brann 235-6018; Bumppo Bremicker 399-1345; Lindianne Sarno 235-2952; Lynne Burt 235-5380; and Beth Cumming 235-7971.
