The proposed project Amboy Neighborhood is bordered by Lincoln Avenue to the north, Manchester Avenue to the east, Ball Road to the south, and Euclid Street to the west. This neighborhood is located in Central Anaheim and has a population of 9,681 residents (2010 Census) with 1,999 single-family homes or buildings.
The project consists of improving the existing public right-of-way. The work includes removing and resurfacing asphalt, removal and reconstruction of ADA access ramps, concrete sidewalk, curb and gutter, and driveway approaches. Additionally, parkway trees will be pruned, unhealthy trees will be removed, and new trees will be planted. New pavement markings will be painted as well as new street name signs installed. Overall, this project will re-establish pavement surface integrity, improve the ride quality, enhance the walkability of sidewalks, and beautify the neighborhood.
The Road Repair and Accountability Act of 2017- SB1 For cities, SB 1 will double the amount of revenues they each receive from the state for their local street maintenance and rehabilitation needs. Annually, $500 to $650 million will go to cities statewide, allocated on a per capita basis. A vast majority of the new revenues for cities will come out of the newly created Road Maintenance and Rehabilitation Account (RMRA) where cities will have to prioritize fixing their existing infrastructure first before having some additional flexibility for those funds for other transportation needs.
