Freeland sidewalk in the works

Island County Public Works Department will hold an open house Tuesday, April 17, to present and discuss the plans for the construction of a new sidewalk on Main Street fronting the Payless Shopping Center. This project is funded primarily by county funds and is made necessary by the American with Disability Act.

Island County officials will have drawings of the proposed improvement for viewing and will be available to answer questions and receive public input.

The new 5-foot wide sidewalk will replace the existing gravel path and will also include construction of ADA compliant ramps, curb and gutter. The existing utility pole currently in the middle of the gravel path is planned to be relocated. The existing landscape will be replaced by Island County in partnership with Friends of Freeland.

The public is encouraged to come any time between 6 to 9 p.m. April 17.

The open house format is casual in nature and helps foster individualized discussions that encourage dialogue. The open house will be held at the Freeland Hall, 1515 Shoreview Dr.
