The Belgrade City Council voted on and approved a resolution to raise the benchmark for city streets, improving the function of future roads in a growing town. From now on, any newly constructed or reconstructed roads will need more designations for pedestrians and bikers, while also adding more curbs, gutters and sidewalks. Any minor construction, such as chip sealing, will not need to meet the new requirements.
The official resolution does not designate specific numbers that need to be met i.e. number of gutters per block, but instead states that the necessary features need to be addressed by the city before approval. The city will review building proposals on a project by project basis to best determine the proper amenities construction teams would need to add. The city needs to find the best type of road, given each unique situation and the resolution helps them make the right road the first time.
For those living in Belgrade, the resolution makes sure that their tax dollars are not being wasted on roads that need to be widened, fixed, improved etc. just a few years down the line.
