Wayzata.com reported on the Wayzata Boulevard reconstruction project earlier this week in which a majority of submitted comments were in favor of including medians as part of the plan.

Here is a quick update from City Manager Al Orsen this morning regarding the project:

  1. The current resurfacing project is budgeted for $1.6 million
  2. Adding medians will cost an additional $700,000
  3. Maintaining the medians with weeding, feeding, and irrigation may run $15,000 per year
  4. The City has recently cut back in staff in this particular area
The item is likely to be discussed at the upcoming Council meeting scheduled for July 19.
