A RESOLUTION OF THE HOMER CITY COUNCIL DIRECTING THE CITY ADMINISTRATION TO TERMINATE ALL SURVEY, DESIGN, AND COST ESTIMATING WORK ON THE KACHEMAK DRIVE PATHWAY.
WHEREAS, Resolution 12-079(A) authorized the allocation of up to $20,000 from the HART Fund for the purposes of survey work and an engineering estimate to determine the cost of constructing the initial one-half mile of the proposed Kachemak Drive Non-Motorized Pathway; and
WHEREAS, the Council’s intent when adopting Resolution 12-079(A) was to determine if the trail alignment favored at the time by the Parks and Recreation Advisory Commission and its sub-committee, the Kachemak Drive Path Committee, was feasible and what it might cost to construct; and
WHEREAS, The City Engineer and contract surveyor studied the preferred trail alignment and concluded that construction would be prohibitively expensive due to the topography and terrain and that bridges, retaining walls, and slope stabilization measures would be required.
NOW, THEREFORE, BE IT RESOLVED that the Homer City Council finds that it is not in the City’s interest to pursue the project any further due to funding, permitting, construction, and other concerns.
BE IT FURTHER RESOLVED that the Council hereby directs the City administration and the Parks and Recreation Advisory Commission and its subcommittee, the Kachemak Drive Path Committee to discontinue all work on this project and to expend no further funds on it.
PASSED AND ADOPTED BY THE HOMER CITY COUNCIL this 22nd day of April, 2013.
