City to vote on grant funding for path on Lakeview
Palm Coast’s City Council is preparing to approve an agreement with the Florida Department of Transportation for grant funding for the construction of a multi-use path on Lakeview Boulevard.
The state would provide $505,472 for the project.The location currently has no sidewalk, and a 16-year-old Matanzas High School student, Michelle Taylor, died there in March of last year after she was struck by a car while walking along an unlighted stretch of the roadway after dark.
The path would be built on the west side of the road, and the project would also involve adding crosswalks, trash receptacles and benches.
The council will vote on the grant approval at an upcoming City Council meeting.
