The MPC previously programmed $627,999.63 in MPO discretionary STBG-U funds for preliminary engineering and construction of Coburg Loop Path, Phase 4 project (key# 19757). The City of Coburg is now proposing to split the full programmed amount to preliminary engineering and construction of a new project Coburg Loop- N Coburg Industrial Way (key# TBD), and amending the Metropolitan Transportation Improvement Program (MTIP) accordingly.
Unanticipated high cost of Phase 4 of Coburg Loop has resulted in the request to use these funds to build a different planned segment of the Coburg Loop that connects to a proposed wetland park, while pursuing adequate funding for Phase 4.
A public comment period on the proposed amendment is open from March 30, 2018 through April 28, 2018. A public hearing is scheduled for the April 5, 2018 MPC meeting, with action on the request scheduled for the May 3, 2018 meeting.
