Budget Request 2019-2020
Detailed Decision Package


Public Works - Streets
Downtown Infrastructure Analysis
Analysis of downtown infrastructure.
Background
The majority of streets in the downtown core are in need of preservation; however, the underground infrastructure has been in place for over 50 years in the downtown core and some of it may need to be replaced. Staff does not want to propose street preservation throughout downtown until the underground infrastructure is considered.  Additionally, the Downtown Camas Association has approached staff multiple times regarding the potential costs of incorporating power and street lights throughout downtown and a desire to improve aesthetics. 
Current situation

Staff does not want to propose street preservation throughout downtown until the underground infrastructure is considered.  Additionally, the Downtown Camas Association has approached staff multiple times regarding the potential costs of incorporating power and street lights throughout downtown and a desire to improve aesthetics.  
Proposed solution
Complete a high-level analysis of the underground and roadway infrastructure downtown to determine replacement needs and costs. Incorporate wants by the Downtown Camas Association regarding above-ground infrastructure, including power and street lights.  Create a tentative plan for replacement based on estimated costs.
