Projects

The City of Angels has projects constantly occurring throughout the City.  Through the coordinated efforts of City Staff, the Calaveras County Council of Governments, Caltrans, CalOES, FEMA, Housing and Development, Calaveras Foundation, and so many others, the City is striving to make intelligent choices for our residents and visitors.

Utica Park

The geotechnical report will be available soon. In the meantime, the playground is selected and on order. The bathrooms have been ordered, final site design is in the works, based on the geotechnical findings. This will also make various mitigation determinations on open shafts for the City Council to discuss. We plan to have that discussion and presentation in April with the City Council.

Wayfinding Signs

Visitors need directions to find our businesses and to ensure they don’t just drive right through our charming City!  The Wayfinding sign project will help with that.  This project is a coordinated project between the County of Calaveras and the City of Angels, with the County taking the lead.

The County released the Bid for construction on the monuments and wayfinding signs.  Bids are due on 4/17/24 through the Public Purchase website.  Contract should go to BOS for award on 5/28/24. Bid Information

Construction is 70 working days.

This is a County Wide project being organized by the County of Calaveras. To see the sign website, please refer here.

Angels Creek Master Plan & Trail Project

Angels Creek Trail

The City of Angels 2020 General Plan defines the Angels Creek Master Plan and Trail project. Conservation and Open Space Implementation Program 4.D.c “Draft a Creek Corridor Preservation & Management Plan for Angels Creek” called for “a trail along the creek through the city limits (with potential future links to trails extending along the creek beyond the city limits).”

The proposed trail extends from the Highway 4 Bypass in the north to New Melones Reservoir in the South, approximately 5.1 miles in length. The proposed trail is broken into three phases prioritizing construction. The three phases are North, Central, and South. The phases are further divided into preferred and alternate alignments.

The Environmental and Cultural are complete (Spring 2024) and we will be working through Right of Way and then on to construction in the 2025/26 fiscal year.

MACT Museum

The M.A.C.T. Health Board is building a two-story administrative and cultural building with an outdoor cultural park, including a roundhouse, bark houses, public restrooms, parking, and bus parking.  Groundbreaking has started and they are slated to complete construction in 2024.

Habitat for Humanity – Eureka Oaks

The largest workforce housing development the City has seen is about to break ground. This would include 107 homes and range in size (up to 1,436 square feet). The units will be either two, three, or four bedrooms and will be under a homeowners association.

The units will be energy-efficient and easy to maintain. Income requirements will be up to $104,650 for a family of four, and the future homeowners must commit to contributing up to 500 “sweat equity ” hours. Mortgages will be no more than 30% of their gross monthly household income.

East Trunk/Vallecito Rd Sewer Phase 1

This project will mitigate future hazards, in addition, to upsizing and rehabilitating the City’s trunk sewer and trunk mains.  Slated to be completed 2024.

Highway 4 and 49 Mobility Improvement Project

Caltrans proposes to make intersection, roadway, pedestrian, and bicycle improvements and modify the intersection of State Route (SR-) 49 and SR-4 with either a roundabout or signalized intersection. The project would also improve the intersection of SR-49 and Francis Street with either a roundabout or a signalized intersection.

Caltrans Complete Streets

Not to be confused with the Mobility Project, this project ties into the Mobility project with regards to the sidewalks and bike lanes. This project is going to add sidewalks and bike lanes from the SR 4/49 section to Utica Park! Elements of this project include landscaping (think trees and bushes along the highway), stamped concrete, lighting, and additional pedestrian crossings.

Caltrans will maintain the landscaping for three years following the initial planting. The stamped concrete will match the color selection from the Downtown Main Street plan (taupe/cream). The crossing section will include brown cast metal to align with our historic look.
