AAU Design PlansCopies of the students’ design plans were available for all to look through, although it was a bit unclear how to decipher them for some of us who hadn’t been involved in the process at all. Heather offered to go over one of the plans and discovered that particular one (Nahal’s) was incomplete – it was missing the pages that showed the actual designs. She had the original, so was able to do a presentation for the group with the full material.
Patricia has supplied a link to see all of all the designs: https://www.dropbox.com/sh/sn1seubmsas7yl6/AAC76-uKVHsyNdbfoabsry9wa?dl=
Although the plans may cover the whole stretch, the students produced more detailed designs for Parcel 1 (Josiah to Margaret) and Parcel 4 (Caine to San Miguel), so that is what we should concentrate on as well.
It was determined that we need more time to look over the plans and then meet to discuss what we would like to see. We will meet on Saturday, January 31 from 10am- 12noon.
Sandra and Tony Botts of the Street Use and Mapping Dept. of DPW, along with Robert and Moneka walked the Lane to look at the encroachment points according to the survey. These will need to be checked further with the Assessor/Recorder’s Office to determine if what looks like an encroachment might have been purchased by the property owner, and thus, is no longer public property. Sandra and Tony will look into this.
Look over the plans, mark them up, take notes on what you like and don’t like, what you think would work best, and come to the meeting prepared to discuss.
