The City is starting the design process to replace the large retaining wall on the south side of South McCarrons Boulevard between Woodruff Avenue and Glenwood Street due to the condition of the existing retaining wall. See the Location Map. The existing wall is not in immediate danger of failure, but is showing signs it will need to be replaced in the next few years. Staff is monitoring the wall for any indication that it is getting worse. Over the summer of 2022, the City will work with its consultant to design a replacement wall. The City will work with nearby residents to discuss impacts and get input on wall design features.
A neighborhood meeting was held on Thursday, May 12, 2022, at 6:00 p.m. on-site at the retaining wall. Staff gave a brief overview of the need for the project, our anticipated schedule, possible impacts and discussion of future input from the neighborhood. The handout from the presentation and summary of the feedback residents shared is available in the links on the right.
The City plans to hold future meetings with residents to discuss wall design, including aesthetic design, later this summer. Residents will be notified when the meeting is scheduled.
