City Council Regular
Meeting Date: 02/07/2018  
Subject:    Consider Resolution No. 17-12(8) Accepting Plans and Specifications for 2018 Park Improvements, and Authorizing Solicitation of Bids
Submitted For: Tim Himmer From: Sarah Greene, Administrative Assistant II

INTRODUCTION
As part of the Park Master Plan, Crooked Lake and Riverwind Parks were approved by Council for redevelopment. WSB & Associates, Inc. completed plans and specifications for this work. Council is requested to approve the plans and specifications and order the advertisement for bids.
DISCUSSION
Crooked Lake and Riverwind Parks have been identified as the next park referendum projects, with construction to occur this year. A public open house was held in the Council Chambers on January 9, 2017, and the concepts and comments were reviewed by the Park & Rec Commission. Based upon public feedback and input from the Commission, the concept drawings were refined and presented to City Council on June 20, 2017. Design services agreements submitted by WSB were approved along with the updated concepts.

The project plans and specifications have now been updated to final design status. Staff is requesting Council approve the project plans and specifications, and authorize advertisement for bids.

The project will be advertised February 9 and 16, 2018, and bids will be received on February 27, 2018.  A recommendation for contract award is scheduled to be presented to Council on March 6, 2018. If Council awards a contract at that time, a preconstruction meeting will be scheduled shortly thereafter, allowing the contractor ample time to secure prefabricated facilities (restroom, picnic shelters) to be delivered toward the end of the project. Construction is planned to begin as soon as feasible this spring, and substantial completion of the project is anticipated to be fall of 2018.
RECOMMENDATION
It is recommended the City Council adopt Resolution No. 17-12(8) approving plans and specifications and ordering advertisement for bids for the 2018 Park Improvement project.

BUDGET IMPACT:
This project is proposed to be funded by the park bond referendum and it is anticipated to be within the allotted budget for these improvements.
