SPARKS — The City Council today will consider approving an interlocal agreement with the Regional Transportation Commission for a variety of projects associated with street and highway improvement programs.

According to city staff reports, anticipated pavement preservation fuel and sales tax projects in Sparks include the following:

• Corrective maintenance projects – 2012 and 2013;

• Preventative maintenance (slurry seals, etc.) – 2012 and 2013;

• South Stanford Way (Greg Street to McCarran Boulevard) – 2012;

• Snider Way (Stanford Way to Steneri Way) – 2012; and

• Greenbrae Drive (El Rancho Drive to Rock Boulevard) – 2012.

Anticipated corridor improvement fuel tax projects in Sparks include the following:  

• Nichols Boulevard bicycle and pedestrian improvements – 2012;

• Prater Way enhancements – 2012; and

• Americans with Disabilities Act Pedestrian Transition Improvement Plan – 2013.

Funds are allocated in the street and traffic budget for portions of these projects not eligible for RTC funding. Individual interlocal agreements with the RTC for these specific roadway project elements will be submitted to the City Council for approval, according to staff reports.

In other news, the council is expected to accept $33,000 from the Children’s Cabinet to support before- and after-school programming at 14 elementary schools across the city. The funding will help cover the cost of participation in the programs for children of low-income families. The city’s Parks and Recreation department operates the programs and received $38,000 in similar funding last year.

The Sparks City Council will meet at 2 p.m. today in the legislative chambers located at 745 Fourth St.
