UPDATES ON COUNTY WORK IN OUR AREA 

SW 49th AveSW 49th Ave will not get underway until 2024. The public meeting that was discussed during the March 2nd membership meeting has been delayed (it was intended for Apr/May). This will likely not occur until late in the year (Fall-ish).  We will be sure to update you on the new date.

 Community signage– After the County completes  SW 49th Ave’s widening, we will be able to discuss the land needed to put up the entrance markers for KOWOA's community signage. We will be using non dues funds (Estoppel income, etc...) for this project. 
SW 95th St/I-75 interchange this interchange is no longer a scheduled project.
Sidewalks – County will help in researching what grants may be available for the neighborhood to use for sidewalk installations.  The County does plan to put sidewalks on SW 49th Ave with the widening project, as well as a trail on the same side.                                                             January 2020
