ACTC Plan Tops Sutter Creek Agenda

ACTC Plan Tops Sutter Creek Agenda

The Sutter Creek City Council reviewed a walking and biking plan and discussed a permanent governing structure to oversee the Knights Foundry site at their meeting on Monday night.  The Draft Pedestrian and Biking plan is produced by the Amador County Transportation Commission and both details the existing biking and walking situation and lays out numerous potential projects throughout the city.   Much of the Council discussion focused on these projects, which mostly propose extending the City's sidewalk network to allow better pedestrian access for residential areas to commercial areas.   The Council also reviewed a proposal for long-term management of the historic Knights Foundry, which the City completed purchased of earlier this year.  Similar to how the City's Promotion Committee currently works, the City Council would appoint a Committee to oversee the historic site, make long-term plans for its restoration and presentation to the public and oversee the day-to-day operations at the Foundry.  The Council is expected to officially adopt the plan at a later meeting.   During her City Manager's Report, Amy Getney announced that ARSA General Manager Karl Dextel had been removed from his position and that Getney would be serving as interim Manager.  The ARSA system provides waste-water disposal services for Sutter Creek, Amador City and Martel.
