The Peoria City Council has approved a plan to build a water-transmission line linking the municipal system with the distribution system now serving the Vistancia development in the northwestern portion of Peoria.
The council voted 7-0 vote June 16 to authorize a partial amendment to the Lake Pleasant Heights Development agreement, which was previously amended in 2005. The change allows the city and its partners on the project, which include several housing developers, to proceed with planning, design and construction of the Lone Mountain Water Line.
The 36-inch pipeline will run essentially from Loop 303 to Lake Pleasant Parkway along a route basically paralleling Lone Mountain Parkway. The pipeline will carry up to 22.8 million gallons of water daily.
Development partners Vistancia, Saddleback Heights, Trilogy West and two ownership groups comprising Lake Pleasant Heights – IOTA Purple and G3 Noranda – will share the $10.6M cost of the project. The city’s share will be $3.9M.
Land acquisition, planning, reviews and public bidding for the construction contract will begin July 1. Actual construction is expected to take from next January through September 2016.
