03/11/2019 - Valley Springs Town Center Connectivity Plan Meeting Tonight
Valley Springs, CA...The Valley Springs Town Center Connectivity Plan will be hosting the second public meeting as part of the project’s public engagement process. The focus of the second public meeting will be to provide a summary of the survey responses held after the first public meeting, to present plans that show where improvements are needed within the project area, and to gain feedback on proposed alternative treatments to various streets typologies throughout the project area.

About the Project:
In 2016, the Calaveras Council of Governments (CCOG) submitted an application to Caltrans for a Sustainable Transportation Planning Grant to fund the Valley Springs Complete Streets Capital Infrastructure Plan.  In December 2017, Caltrans notified CCOG that the plan had been selected for funding in Fiscal Year 2017/2018. In 2018, CCOG, in partnership with Calaveras County and Caltrans, selected GHD, in partnership with Design Workshop, to complete the plan.

The project will work with the Valley Springs community, Calaveras County, and Caltrans to identify infrastructure projects that enhance bicycle, pedestrian, and vehicular connectivity in the Town Center. The Valley Springs Town Center Connectivity Plan will identify and prioritize projects that provide safe connectivity within the Town Center and between Valley Springs Elementary School, residential uses, commercial services, and retail destinations along the State Route 12 and State Route 26 corridors. This project is dedicated to the enhancing mulit-modal mobility, accessibility and connectivity to enhance community identity and quality of life.

03/19/2019 - CCWD to Discuss Lake Tulloch Area Sewer Improvements at March 19 Town Hall
Copperopolis, CA...The Calaveras County Water District is holding a town hall meeting in Copperopolis in mid-March to seek community input on an upcoming construction project to improve the District’s sewer system around Lake Tulloch. The project is currently in the planning/design phase, which is expected to be complete by the end of 2019 with construction slated for spring 2020. The town hall meeting is open to the public and will be held at 5:30 p.m. Tuesday March 19 at Black Creek Hall, 920 Black Creek Drive, Copperopolis. CCWD will provide a project overview, take questions and be available for small-group discussions following the presentation.

This project will eliminate a 6-inch sewer pipeline that currently runs under a portion of Lake Tulloch and construct a new pipeline that runs 5,200 feet along O’Byrnes Ferry Road and Connor Estates Drive. The new pipeline will redirect sewer flows away from pump stations adjacent to Lake Tulloch, which will reduce the chances of spills occurring near the water. The project also includes the renovation of four sewer pump stations (two in Poker Flat and two in Copper Cove Subdivision), which will increase operational efficiency and reduce the potential risk of operational hazards to staff members. A preliminary cost estimate expects the project to cost $5.25 million, which will be funded by the District’s Sewer Capital Renovation and Replacement Fund.

This project will have the greatest impact on the following communities:

Lake Tulloch Shores at Poker Flat, Calypso Bay, Connor Estates, Copper Cove
The streets that will be most impacted are as follows:

East side of Tulloch: O’Byrnes Ferry Road (between Connor Estates Drive and Duchess Drive), Connor Estates Drive, Bret Harte Drive, Jimmy Way
West side of Tulloch: Kiva Drive, Tewa Court, Lakeshore Drive
For more information contact Joel Metzger, Manager of External Affairs, Conservation and Grants, or (209) 754-3123.
