The City of College Place accepted a grant for $464,530 from the State Department of Commerce via its Community Development Block Grant program to construct 2,659 linear feet of five foot wide sidewalk in key areas of the community lacking sidewalk. As of January 16th, 2020 the City has put out the final engineering work out to bid with a due date of February 10th, 2020. The sidewalk segments to be constructed include: SW Davis Avenue (Whitman Drive to SE 3rd Street), SW Bade Avenue (SW 5th to 6th Streets), SW Bade Avenue (SW 7th to 10th Streets), and SW 12th Street (SW College to Bade Avenues). The improvements will be constructed on city-owned right-of-way. The City is aiming for a late Summer 2020 construction.
