Projects to pave roads in the undeveloped portions of Arbor Village near the area of the new St. Mary's Community Hospital finished last on the city's recent priority list.
A $1 million construction project to extend Morgan Drive to Grundman Boulevard and a $250,000 project to extend Grundman Boulevard finished last out of 36 proposed projects.
In budget documents, the city expected its costs to about $150,000 for the work and other contributions to be about $850,000.
City Administrator Joe Johnson said the city has not come to terms with the property owner, CLD Real Estate Advisors, regarding engineering and street construction.
Street Commissioner Dean Handy said he feels the streets should be improved when the new hospital is built.
“This is the ideal time to do it, but the owner is not ready to invest in the streets, so we had to basically remove them from the list,” he said.
Street department projects in the top 15 are a new asphalt patching machine and North 11th Street from First Avenue to the North Table Creek bridge.
Construction of 15th Street north of Morgan Drive was approved in a previous budget.
