Agenda Item Summary:
A request was received in the Engineering Office on October 15, 2020 requesting the requirement to install sidewalk along Feather Ridge Court and Hwy 44 per City of Rapid City Ordinance 12.08.060 be waived. A four-foot wide sidewalk is required to be constructed along Feather Ridge Court, and a five-foot wide sidewalk is required to be constructed along Hwy 44, at the time of building permit. The property has approximately 568 feet of frontage along Feather Ridge Court and 321.8 feet along Hwy 44. Feather Ridge Court is a private, rural, gravel street section with no location graded for sidewalks. Hwy 44 has sidewalks on the opposite side of the road, there are also jersey barriers along the back side of the curb just to the west of this lot protecting the roadway from rock slides, the property owner would need to come down feather ridge court to Hwy 44 to maintain this sidewalk. Public Works staff recommends approval of the sidewalk variance request.
