The McPherson Public Works Department has closed its street selection process that’s included in the renewal of the half-cent sales tax. They received a total of 482 responses to their survey of the streets that needed the most repairs.
The survey was broken down into four quadrants, with the intersection of Kansas and Main being the divider.
The Northeast Quadrant, which is everything north of Kansas and east of Main, had 229 responses. 83 people selected Hulse Street from Main to North High Drive, and 45 people selected East Northview from Main to North High Drive.
The Northwest Quadrant, which is everything north of Kansas and west of Main, had 100 responses. 20 people selected West Northview from 81 bypass to Main, and 20 people selected Walnut Drive from Northview to Main.
The Southwest Quadrant, which is everything south of Kansas and west of Main, had 50 responses, with 10 choosing Hickory Street from Lincoln to Hayes, and 10 selected Skancke Street from Chestnut to the railroad crossing.
The Southeast Quadrant, which is everything south of Kansas and east of Main, had 103 responses, with 21 selecting South Front Street from Centennial to Champlin, and 18 people choosing South Hartup from Elizabeth to Avenue “A”.
All projects are contingent on the approval of the half-cent sales tax renewal or identifying another funding source. The half-cent sales tax renewal question will appear on the November 7 ballot. For more information, visit http://mcpcity.com/612/Paving-the-Future.
