MAUDE AVENUE PILOT STRIPING
The City of Sunnyvale Public Works Department recently completed a pilot project which installed street signs and striping along Maude Avenue, between North Mathilda Avenue and Borregas Avenue to decrease vehicle queuing, improve transportation operations, and provide dedicated bicycle lanes. Onstreet parking is no longer allowed between North Mathilda Avenue and Borregas Avenue. City staff will observe the pilot project over the next several months for consideration of permanent improvements.

Project Status and Timeline
- Pilot striping construction (Completed): North Mathilda Avenue to Borregas Avenue.
- Design (ongoing): Design of the main project (Maude Avenue Bikeways and Streetscapes) is in progress. The project will install dedicated bike lanes and remove parking along Maude Avenue, from Borregas Avenue to Fair Oaks Avenue. Other improvements include new curb ramps, sidewalk repairs, upgraded pedestrian crosswalks and installation of lighted crosswalks, where warranted, and signal modifications to the Sunnyvale and Maude Avenue intersection to enhance pedestrian and school access. The design is scheduled for completion in late spring 2017 with construction starting summer/fall of 2017.
WASHINGTON COMMUNITY SWIM CENTER PROJECT
The Washington Community Swim Center Project will replace the existing pool with an aquatics facility with a focus on recreational swimming, lessons, water play and therapeutic uses. The target construction budget for the project is approximately $5.5M. There are other pool facilities in Sunnyvale that meet the communities needs for lap and competitive swimming, but there is no aquatics facility available with a focus on recreation. A community input meeting was held on December 15, 2016 to give attendees an opportunity to comment on desired features for swim center improvements. A second community input meeting Scheduled for Thursday, March 30, 2017 will give attendees the opportunity to comment on three conceptual plans that were created based on input received at the first public meeting. The goal of the second meeting will be to select a preferred conceptual plan, or combination of plans, that will then be used to advise the Parks and Recreation Commission who will make recommendations to the City Council.
