A. Sidewalk Master Plan (SMP) Update  
Mr. Skov provided background information on the City’s Sidewalk Master Plan  
(SMP). The SMP is developed by the Bicycle and Pedestrian Commission and is  
typically presented to the Planning Commission before being brought to City  
Council for final approval. He noted that a draft of the SMP had been sent to City  
Council recently to provide a status update given delays caused by the COVID-19  
pandemic. Mr. Skov indicated that he had also presented this draft update to the  
Disabilities Commission and the Public Transit Advisory Commission, who indicated  
specific support for a few individual projects.  
Commissioners inquired as to how sidewalk projects were rated or prioritized on  
the plan. Mr. Skov noted that the plan contains several scoring criteria which are  
used to prioritize projects into two tiers. Some Commissioners asked how much the  
City spends on sidewalk repairs and construction annually to which Mr. Skov  
responded he did not have an exact figure at this time.  
The Commission brought up discretionary grants created by the Bipartisan  
Infrastructure Law (BIL) and how they may provide funding for projects on the SMP.  
Mr. Kelley noted that the City is pursuing a Safe Streets and Roads for All Grant  
(SS4A) which is intended for safety or mobility projects. He noted that the  
application would include various sidewalk projects.  
Commissioners asked if Columbia Public Schools participated in sidewalk projects.  
Mr. Skov responded that no, CPS tends to build schools in non-optimal locations  
regarding infrastructure. Mr. Zenner responded that development plays a part in  
CPS and development agreements are often required which requires developers to  
construct additional sidewalk or other necessary infrastructure. Mr. Zenner thanked  
the Commission for their time and indicated that Mr. Skov would be back to discuss  
the 2022 draft update to the Sidewalk Master Plan at the August 18 work session to  
complete discussion on this topic due to the short work session this evening.  
A. Short-term Rental Regulations - Follow up & Progress  
Not discussed due to time limitations.
