ALIGNMENT ALTERNATIVES
 
Councilmember Aslan noted that the Arizona Trail runs through the area and suggested a tunnel for hikers to use for crossing John Wesley Powell. Mr. Pedersen indicated that there has been a great partnership with Arizona Game and Fish and it is anticipated that there will be a grade separated trail so hikers and wildlife do not have to cross over.
 
The following individuals addressed Council concerning the alignment of John Wesley Powell:
  • Sean Chartier
  • Andrew Richardson
  • Kyle Maycumber
The following comments were received:
  • This road is terrifying as a four lane road, with medians, bike paths, and speed of 45 mph right in front on my house.
  • There are significant safety concerns for kids.
  • Please approve the alternate route and eliminate a road like this in a residential area.
  • Please explore alternatives routes for John Wesley Powell.
  • The neighborhood is concerned about the environment, the loss of wildlife populations, runoff water, and property rights.
  • The road will hinder the ability to meet sustainability goals and is inconsistent with the mission statement of the City of Flagstaff.
Written comments in support of finding an alternative route for John Wesley Powell were submitted by Jeff Weingartz and Christy Maycumber.
 
Council expressed their support for looking at possible alternatives for the alignment of John Wesley Powell.
 
Councilmember Aslan and Vice Mayor Daggett expressed support for a two-lane road rather than four. Councilmember McCarthy stated that a big issue is that the purpose of the road is to provide infrastructure and roads for development that has not yet been built. It will be important to consider the impacts of the full build out.
 
Councilmember Salas also noted that the John Wesley Powell extension is part of the Regional Plan to provide transportation and infrastructure for future growth and development.
 
Councilmember Shimoni asked right-sizing the road and how speed limits are determined. Traffic Engineer Jeff Bauman explained that John Wesley Powell is a minor arterial intended to move people from one part of the city to another. Speed limits are determined by the Engineering Standards and the road would likely be around 35 – 40 mph. Councilmember Shimoni expressed a desire to see speed limits reconsidered and take into account the health and safety of the public.

MILTON/UNIVERSITY ROUNDABOUT STUDY
 
Councilmember Shimoni expressed concern about having a bike lane on the road and suggested a buffer up to the bike lanes and adding a protective component of candlesticks with barriers. Mr. Bauman stated that it is something that staff can look into to see what options might be available.
 
Councilmember Shimoni also requested a reduction of the lanes from six to five by removing one of the left turn lanes. Mr. Barrett explained that removing a left turn lane would lead to a traffic backup that would block the driveway into the Milltown development. Councilmember Shimoni noted that he is open to taking the lane out even at the risk of backing up traffic.

They are optimistic about the path forward and the successes the program can bring to the community. They discussed the development of the RFP and a desire to provide flexibility to potential responders to provide creative solutions for Flagstaff.

Mayor Deasy reported that Monday is Indigenous Peoples’ Day and there are a number of great presentations and activities scheduled throughout the day.
