One Response to “Projects: CIP Review Committee Resident Proposals Tuesday, April 24”

  1. Great list of proposals. Public safety and public art. Several proposals call for traffic islands. Recent CIP funded examples of traffic islands are the Ramona Ronada Triangle and Kingston- Linda triangle. Both were great ideas but took 5-8 years to complete through CIP.

    An alternative approach to funding could be io integrate storm water controls into these islands. Called a bioswale, curb cuts divert street runoff into the planting in the traffic island for natural treatment by the soil. Ronada does this; Kingston does not. The goal is to prevent polluted runoff from going into the Bay. All east bay cities are under court order and are developing plans to build bioswales in public and new projects. Piedmont recently hired a consultant to design the Green Infrastructure Program (GIP) to identify where these bioswales will be located.

    Funding will come from the Sewer Tax as the program nears completion. Residents who want traffic islands or improvements (crosswalks are applicable) should contact the City. CIP projects that implement stormwater treatment would likely be eligible for this funding as well as other sources for the City.
