Some of the identified repairs can be completed by Parks Staff, while more technical work will need to be performed by a licensed contractor. DLZ will complete two sets of design drawings and specifications, one for the work that will be bid out to a contractor and the other for work to be completed by City staff so that they will have a sufficient level of detail to allow them to complete the work accurately and efficiently.

DLZ's engineering design work will be completed in Winter/Spring 2019, allowing the construction contractor portion of the project to be bid in early Summer 2019 so that work can commence in the fall. City staff will commence with other repair work as soon as the design documents are complete.

The project meets the sustainability goals of promoting active living and learning and providing transportation options, as the park ...
