Project Status as of February 2023
This is a CIP Project funded by the 4B Corporation. City Council awarded the design contract on April 16, 2020. Amendment 3 on April 1, 2022 and Amendment 4 on April 19, 2022 increased the design services to include the complete park rather than just Phase 1 and a Master Plan. The current design will include several add alternates for council to consider after the work is bid. Surveying, Geotech, and wetlands delineation and environmental studies have been completed with remediation monitoring continue for several more months. The approval of the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers permit is expected shortly. Final Conceptual Design and Design Development was complete in December 2022. Final Design is anticipated to be complete during late 2023. Bidding is planned to follow with construction to be completed in 2026.
