Aldermen will consider Phase II of the Parkway study which is being conducted by HDR consultants to help city officials chart a path for the Parkway between the Grand Glaize Bridge and Lazy Days Road.

The Osage Beach Parkway, sidewalk design and private roads will be on the agenda when the Osage Beach Board of Aldermen meet in special session at 6 p.m. Thursday. The meeting is open to the public.

Aldermen will consider Phase II of the Parkway study which is being conducted by HDR consultants to help city officials chart a path for the Parkway between the Grand Glaize Bridge and Lazy Days Road. HDR and the city have hosted several public meetings to solicit public input and to also keep residents and officials updated on the progress.

The board will also discuss changes in the sidewalk design standards and possible changes in how city officials might include private roads in the city's inventory.

Issues with the steepness of some ingress and egress curbs built as part of an ongoing sidewalk replacement program came to light at a recent board of aldermen meeting. As a result, the city is considering changes in the sidewalk designs, and may look at changing out some of the problem areas.

Several months ago, the board discussed how to bring some private roads within the city limits into the city inventory for better maintenance and to provide city residents with service of those roads. Aldermen will consider an ordinance addressing private roads.
