The Hollywood Commission approved a number of projects during a recent meeting.  Because of the coronavirus situation all the commission members, except Mayor Josh Levy participated remotely.

It agreed to a resolution to allow city leaders to execute an agreement with Transmap Corporation for a citywide pavement study for an amount not to exceed $173,664. The Department of Development Services has determined it is necessary to have a Citywide pavement study prepared to assist the City in planning a future resurfacing program and developing a capital/financial plan. This study will include a pavement condition field survey of all the City’s maintained streets and alleys. The pavement study data collection will include an asset inventory of road and street-side features such as sidewalks, bike paths, swales, curb and gutter, pavement markings and signs, utility manholes and valves, street and light poles, trees, speed humps and on-street parking. Updated data is necessary so the City can apply for Broward County Penny for Transportation Surtax funding for pavement rehabilitation and maintenance projects.  

It agreed to a resolution to allow city leaders to execute a subordination of City utility interests agreement with the Florida Department of Transportation for construction of a southbound right-turn lane along AIA at the driveway access to Hyde Beach House by the owner of the development. The developer has completed construction of a southbound right-turn deceleration lane along AIA into the project site and the neighboring property to the north as required by the Florida Department of Transportation (FDOT). The developer has transferred land ownership of the turn lane to FDOT and consent of the City’s vested interests within limits of the turn lane is necessary.

It agreed to a resolution to proceed with Bermello, Ajamil & Partners for professional engineering services for the design of the Avant Garde Academy of Broward sidewalk construction project through the Florida Department of Transportation Safe Routes to School Grant in an amount not to exceed $108,280. In June, 2017, the FDOT approved funding for the Avant Garde Academy of Broward Safe Routes to School in the amount of $983,393 for Fiscal Years 2020 and 2022, for the construction of 13,225 linear feet of new concrete sidewalks, based on their long range estimate format forecasting construction costs five years into the future.
