(Richmond, IN)--Richmond Common Council on Monday night heard about plans to make major improvements to a part of Peacock Road. The city wants to apply for a grant that would fund most of $3.2 million worth of upgrades that would include bike paths and sidewalks for Peacock Road between North West 11th and North West 18th. The theory is that the upgrades would improve safety for kids traveling to and from Dennis Intermediate School and the athletic fields in the area. Some council members expressed concern over the amount of public input with the project. Even if approved, work would be several years away. The issue was referred Monday night to the Finance Committee.
