The final design for the project is underway. The City is beginning the right of way acquisition process and will hold a public meeting on September 24. We will continue meet with stakeholder groups to gather input on public art opportunities and streetscape design through Spring 2016.
Timeline for RADTIP Property Acquisition Process
The property acquisition process will include a combination of easement acquisitions and fee simple purchases depending upon the location of the property.
Properties involving relocation will be the first to be addressed in the process. The acquisition process should begin no sooner than September of 2015 and must be completed by June of 2016.
The following timeline represents an estimation of the earliest date that a property can be subject to the RADTIP property acquisition process:
- September to November 2015: Pre-acquisition activities (e.g. appraisals, surveys, appraisal review, etc.)
- December 2015- Offers delivered to owner and Notice of Relocation to landlord/tenant on the same day
- Tenant relocation services begin when the notice is delivered.
- Tenants are notified that they will have at least 90 days to vacate.
