Park & Trail Improvements
Pink Evening Primrose Trail
Segment 1 of the Pink Evening Primrose Trail is nearing completion. The 8' wide concrete trail connects the below grade crossing at Morriss Road that connects to the Riverwalk development. It meanders through the open field and runs behind the daycare facility to Timber Creek Road. It proceeds north along the west side of Timber Creek Road to College and then on up to connect to the existing 8' trail behind Lamar Middle School.
Cortadera Park Improvements
The project includes a new interior loop trail that includes benches overlooking the pond, new basketball striping with courtside benches, ADA compliance improvements, and irrigation for the practice field. Additional improvements include a section of wrought iron fencing at the pond and new trees with irrigation. Irrigation installation is complete, and final punch list items are in progress. The anticipated completion of these improvements is May 2019.
Rheudasil Park Design
The project is for the design of the approved Master Plan for Rheudasil Park (approved December 2014). Design of the project was delayed until completion of the dredging and bank stabilization project. The professional services agreement, with Studio Outside Landscape Architecture, LLC., in the amount of $136,700, was awarded at the October 1, 2018 council meeting. Due to the length of time since the master plan approval, the master plan was “re-presented” at the December 6, 2018 Parks Board meeting. A design kick-off meeting was held on December 9. The next step is the site assessment. The design is expected to be complete by Fall 2019. The consultant will provide the Parks Board with a design update at the 60% completion mark in May. Once complete, the project will be put out to bid for construction in FY 19/20.
Canyon Falls Park Design
This project is for the design of the approved master plan for Canyon Falls Park. The consultant is currently conducting the site assessment of the park which includes a site survey, including the location of existing trees and topography, soil analysis, and a drainage study. The site assessment will aid in the proper location of the amenities. The professional services agreement, with Mesa Design Associates in the amount of $149,500, was awarded at the October 1, 2018, Council meeting. The design is expected to be complete by Fall 2019. The consultant will provide the Parks Board with a design update at the 60% completion mark, anticipated to be in June. Once complete, the project will be put out to bid for construction in FY 19/20.
