The existing street/public right-of-way width on Griffin Street is only 35-40 feet compared to Pine Street which has a 50 foot wide right-of-way. In order to reduce impacts to adjacent properties, portions of Griffin Street have been proposed to be reduced from the city’s typical 26-foot wide pavement to 22-feet wide. This width still provides the ability for on-street parking on one side of the street and allows safe passing of other vehicles. A similar approach was taken previously along Cole Street where a narrow roadway was provided between Cedar Street and College Street. Although the current city standard for residential streets is 26-feet in width, a variance is considered in historical neighborhoods.
