More sidewalk construction is coming to the city of Navasota.
Development Services Director Guadalupe Diosdado presented an Advance Funding Agreement, or AFA, with the city for a project that has been close to a year in the discussion phase.
“Last fall, we were rewarded a grant for six foot wide sidewalks along Brosig Avenue, from Washington Avenue to Piedmont Road, which includes a pedestrian bridge, lighting, and crosswalk enhancements at Brule and Brosig. There was a resolution approved to submit that application…now there is another resolution requirement to enter an Advance Funding Agreement, that allows the city and TXDOT, basically, to spend money,” said Diosdado. “Thankfully, for this project, there is no city contribution for matching funds.”
Diosdado said he hopes this is the final big paperwork hurdle, before one last push to get the project officially rolling.
“We are hoping that we can go out for professional services, get it designed…then hopefully be starting construction, sometime in the Fall of next year,” said Diosdado.
Council approved the resolution to enter the contract for an Advance Funding Agreement.
