Improving the infrastructure of our neighborhoods is an investment in our City that adds value and high-quality city services for our residents.
The City plans to extend public sanitary sewers to serve the area on Trails End Drive in 2022.
A public input session was held June 22, 2021. During that meeting, City of Dublin Engineering staff discussed the proposed project that would extend sanitary sewers and reconstruct the roadway on Trails End Drive. The City requested feedback regarding residents’ preferences regarding street width, curb and gutter installation and pedestrian enhancements. The City accepted responses from residents until July 22, 2021.
The comments received were in favor of maintaining a similar roadway layout to that of the existing street. As such, a majority of residents was not in favor of adding a sidewalk or curb and gutter to the roadway. Many residents requested that the location of the sanitary sewer be revised so the mature trees would not be affected by the project. Multiple residents expressed a willingness to experience additional construction impacts and inconveniences if more trees could be preserved. Engineering staff is currently reviewing the feasibility of adjusting the proposed sanitary sewer location within the right-of-way.
The City is seeking further information from you regarding the proposed sanitary sewer extension project. Utility extensions to unserved areas across Dublin are scheduled to occur over the next ten to 15 years. Many of these unserved neighborhoods are anxiously awaiting their opportunity to connect to these public services. The City desires to provide these extensions to interested communities as soon as is reasonable within the City’s Capital Improvement Program budget. Therefore, we would like to gather feedback from residents in your neighborhood regarding interest in connecting to the public sanitary system and likelihood to do so.
Having a sanitary sewer in your neighborhood is an exciting opportunity. It provides access to a long-term solution that is more reliable than household sewage treatment systems. Additionally, access to a public sanitation system will likely benefit the neighborhood’s home values over time. Sanitary sewer extensions are excellent investments in our City’s infrastructure and improve the livelihoods of our residents.
