Mr. Hohmann's and Mr. Gonzalez's slide presentations were added to the packet <br /> materials for the meeting. The project team presented the intersection alternatives that had been evaluated and <br /> the public input on those alternatives. <br /> The project team requested Council endorsement of a preferred alternative before moving the project to the <br /> preliminary design phase and expending resources for continuing evaluation of the alternative selected. The <br /> team recommended the roundabout alternative. <br /> The project team responded to councilmember questions about ferry traffic volumes and the Safeway entrance. <br /> Mr. Walters asked to have repaving 11th Street between 0 Avenue and Commercial Avenue made part of this <br /> project.
