CorrespondenceThe Methodist Student Center although in the vicinity of the A &M Methodist Church is not affiliated with the church but instead is the center for all local Methodist college students. The center would like to construct a 6 foot sidewalk adjacent to the back of curb along Tauber to provide a nice walking surface between University Drive and Church Street for not only their students but also for students in the Northgate residential area who walk to campus and cross at the signal at Tauber and University Drive. Due to limited funds, the Methodist Student Center is requesting to construct this infill sidewalk of plain grey concrete rather than the Northgate stamped colored concrete sidewalk. The reasons behind this request are: • the surrounding sidewalks are all plain grey and this section would look out of place as stamped colored, • the adjacent sidewalks are all in good condition and won't need to be replaced in the near future • the likelihood of Aggieland Credit Union redeveloping and therefore the existing sidewalk being replaced as stamped colored is slim • the likelihood of the A &M United Methodist Church Sanctuary being remodeled along Tauber Street thus requiring a rework of the existing sidewalk is slim (it is more likely that if the sanctuary is expanded it would be on the Lodge Street side of the building). We understand that this request must be forwarded to the Design Review Board for their approval. We appreciate your help with this project. If yoµ have any questions or need any further information please give us a call.
