One and Six Plan includes Cornerstone streets
By Jan Schultz

In addition to prioritizing new streets and curb/gutter in the Sage Addition and extending West 12th St. with cement, another priority project for the coming year is opening of 2nd Street and others in the city’s Cornerstone property.
The plan, presented at Monday’s council meeting, also includes projects for the five years following.
Kent Cordes of Miller & Associates reviewed the plans with the mayor and council.
While the one-year plan presented included opening 2nd Street from Holland east to Highway 61, the council was undecided about an all-gravel or part cement street.
The plan included concrete paving of a 40-foot wide street from Holland to Orsa, with a crushed rock surface from Orsa to the highway.
Building of two retention cells, along with water and storm sewer pipe are also included in Cornerstone improvements.
On the six-year plan are:
Opening 3rd St., in Cornerstone with a crushed rock street.
Opening Orsa St., with crushed rock surface from 2nd St., south to Highway 6.
Millings, repair on Longhorn St.
Several drainage projects, including 17th and Grant Sts., South St., and south of Highway 61.
Cordes said Imperial’s allocation of state highway funds is contingent on submission of a One and Six Year Street Plan each year.
He anticipates the city will receive about $201,000 this year in those funds.
Each community’s allotment is based on highway lane miles, number of registered vehicles and population.
Cordes noted the plan can be changed at anytime.
