Moore will look at walkability near damaged neighborhoods



The contract with Cardinal will include four points of public participation. The CDBG program requires public participation to qualify for the special funding.

“Each project that we do with DR funds will have its own public participation,” Jones said.

Most city buildings escaped damage in the tornado and other May storms, and insurance paid for a large portion of city losses at parks, including play structures, bathrooms and pavilions. This portion of the DR will cover basic city infrastructure.

“We are anticipating some improvements at the parks that will be paid with DR funds, but this proposal is just the infrastructure,” Jones said.

In other city business, Moore council members approved an agreement with Red Plains Professional Inc. for engineering services not to exceed $19,600, for the redesign of the intersection of Max Morgan Drive and Southwest 19th Street and for the extension of Max Morgan Boulevard, to serve additional commercial development in the Royal Rock Development.

The proposal includes design services for the planned relocation of an existing public water main, the construction of a new section of Max Morgan through the pending Royal Rock Section 6 plat, the reconstruction of the Max Morgan and Southwest 19th Street intersection and the design for a temporary connection of Southwest 17th to the north and west, according to the proposal by Red Plains.
