Soldotna votes down North Aspen SAD project

Soldotna City Council voted down a special assessment district for North Aspen Road at its Wednesday night meeting.

All six council members voted against the resolution.

The city received three letters expressing concerns about certain proposed improvements to the street as well as objections to the project as a whole. A petition signed by all but one of the property owners was submitted.

At the meeting, the council heard from six Soldotna residents about the SAD project.

“I don’t think we need a sidewalk on anybody’s side of that alley that we have back there. … I never see anybody walking down through there. … And I don’t really appreciate the way this whole thing’s been done,” Clifford Hugg, whose property would have been affected by the SAD, said.

Council member Linda Murphy said she thinks the improvements to the street are a city project based on the reasons for the SAD as listed in the resolution.

Proposed improvements to North Aspen Road, according to the resolution, included paving, rolled curb and gutter as well as sidewalk, street lighting, landscaping and insulation of an existing water mainline.
