Healdsburg soon will reap extra revenue from a half-cent sales tax increase approved by voters. But how should that million bucks or so be spent? The answer from a survey of residents was overwhelmingly clear: fix the streets.
Continuing complaints about the confusing and ‘counterintuitive’ one-way traffic direction on Foss Creek Circle prompted the Healdsburg City Council on Monday to reconsider reverting back to a two-way street, or even reversing the one-way direction.
Healdsburg is moving ahead with a traffic roundabout at a key intersection, but without the opposition the circular intersections have engendered in some towns.
Healdsburg’s plan to use its highly treated wastewater for irrigation rather than discharge it into the Russian River took a step forward Monday with the budgeting of $1 million to build part of a pipeline network.
Healdsburg’s City Council is urging rail officials to allow an unused railroad bridge over the Russian River to be employed as a temporary bicycle and pedestrian crossing, but the possible resumption of freight train service may derail the proposal.
