Pedestrian and Bicycle Counts

Bicycle and pedestrian counts provide accurate numerical data about non-motorized travelers, and accurate data is helpful in promoting policy, winning grant applications, and building infrastructure to promote non-motorized transportation.  Decision makers have years of data about motor vehicles, but a similar database does not exist for pedestrians and bicycles.  On April 30 at 5:30 p.m. in the City Council chambers at Sandpoint City Hall, Deanna Smith, Project Manager for Idaho Smart Growth, will provide classroom and in-the-field training on how to conduct accurate pedestrian and bicycle counts for those interested in volunteering to do those counts at a later date.  Anyone interested in pedestrian and bicycle awareness is welcome and encouraged to attend.

Coldwater Creek

It is with great sorrow that we learned the news that Coldwater Creek has filed for bankruptcy and intends to liquidate their assets and close operations.  For almost 30 years, Coldwater Creek has been a beacon of light in our community. Their contributions to Sandpoint as a corporate citizen and through the generosity of their employees have been invaluable throughout the years, and, at this time, we would like to share our sincere thanks and appreciation for Coldwater Creek’s endeavors to improve the lives of Sandpoint residents through their countless hours of volunteer work and financial support.  Please click here to read the City of Sandpoint's Response Plan.

Solar Roadways Demonstration Project

The city is pursuing a grant, in conjunction with Solar Roadways, and seeks input from the public on where to install a demonstration project.  If you would like to provide input, please call the Public Works Department at 263-3407.  Click here for a recent article in the Bonner County Daily Bee regarding this project.

Community Review

The City of Sandpoint Community Review Report Presentation was held on Thursday, January 16, at 7:00 p.m. in Council chambers at City Hall, 1123 Lake Street.

 

With a focus on economic development, downtown revitalization, and sustainability, the report includes results from 1,200 surveys mailed to residents in August 2013, summarizes what session participants had to say about the future of Sandpoint, and generally provides information on participants' greatest concerns and suggestions for the future.  Created by a team of 20 community development professionals from around the State, this report will allow the City, residents, business and community partners to prioritize projects based on unbiased findings.

 

If you have any questions, please call the Planning Dept. at 263-3370.

Bike Routes and Street Markings

The Sandpoint City Council recently adopted a City-wide network of bicycle routes. The bike route program is called "Explore Sandpoint!".  Click here for a map showing the adopted system, along with an explanation sheet and a drawing that demonstrates how vehicles and bicycles will share the road with the new pavement markings, called sharrows.

 

If you have any questions or concerns, please call the Public Works Dept. at 263-3407.

Selkirk Loop Interpretive Center

The Selkirk Loop Interpretive Center will be located at the Gateway Parking Lot, located adjacent to the southbound off-ramp of the Sand Creek Byway.  The City received a grant through the Federal Highway Administration to construct the interpretive center.  The center will serve as a rest area, welcome center, bike path trailhead and interpretive center.  Click here to see pictures of the proposed center.

Water and Sewer Line Protection Programs

Notice to Sandpoint Water/Sewer Customers

The City of Sandpoint has received notification that American Water Resources Inc. (AWR), a subsidiary of American Water Works Company, Inc., a private company headquartered in Voorhees, New Jersey, will be sending direct mailings to customers regarding their “Water and Sewer Line Protection Programs.”

AWR’s letter offers to sell customers a type of insurance policy that would defray the cost of repairs in the event that a customer-owned water or sewer line should become damaged by a break or blockage. Customer-owned service lines are the underground water/sewer pipes running from the home to the meter connection for water and from the home to the sewer main for the sewer system.

The City suggests that each customer review his or her current homeowner’s insurance policy to verify whether and to what extent these types of repairs are covered and make your decisions as personally warranted. Of course, you should always read carefully any legal document or contract before signing. 

The City of Sandpoint wants customers to be aware that neither AWR nor its “Water and Sewer Line Protection Programs” are affiliated with or endorsed by the City. For additional questions regarding water and sewer service line responsibility or repair, please contact the Public Works Department at 263-3407.
