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.  Once complete, the project will be put out to bid for construction in FY 19/20.


Heritage Park – Phase IV 

This project will include an additional eighteen parking places with lighting, concrete sidewalk to connect to the trail, a wildflower meadow with designated areas with irrigation, a plaza area with signage kiosk/sundial structure, a scenic overlook, connection of a nature trail to the east side of the park via stone steps along embankment, an eighteen hole disc golf course and an entry sign at the plaza area and all infrastructure to support these elements. The professional services agreement with Schrickel, Rollins, and Associates, Inc. to provide professional master planning and construction documents in the amount of $147,000 was approved by Town Council on March 20, 2017. Construction contract awarded to North Rock Construction LLC., in the amount of $1,497,772.95, on March 5, 2018. Notice to proceed date is April 30. Retaining wall work continues. Disc golf installation is almost complete. Anticipate trellis and informational kiosk arriving this week. Due to the bronze animal sculptures along the nature trail not being in place until after January, staff is planning a soft opening in late January 2019 with a grand opening in the spring.

Anticipated completion: January 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.  Once complete, the project will be put out to bid for construction in FY 19/20.
