The City of North Bend is inviting residents to a virtual town hall meeting on July 27 regarding the construction of the Meadowbrook Utility Local Improvement District.
The proposed construction would extend the public sewer system to the western portion of city limits into the Meadowbrook neighborhood. Last year, a majority of neighborhood residents signed a petition requesting the city extend sewer service to homes and businesses in the neighborhood. The area currently has a septic tank in place.
Public Works Director Mark Rigos and staff will lead the meeting comparing the advantages and disadvantages of having a public sewer vs. a septic drain and provide an approximate cost of the extended system to residents.
According to a March 2021 study of the area, produced by private appraisal firm Sova Consulting, the project is estimated to cost nearly $7.5 million, with the construction of the utility district expected to increase the total neighborhood property value by $11.6 million.
The meeting will take place over Zoom at 7 p.m. Tuesday, July 27.
