Explanation

Background: This ordinance authorizes the Director of the Recreation and Parks Department to enter into contract with The Righter Company, Inc. for the installation of a water trail access point at Olentangy River and King Avenue. The work will include a loading area, planting of vegetation and construction of a limestone slab canoe/kayak access to gain access to the Olentangy River.

The development of the parkland and water trail access was in response to the Fifth by Northwest Civic Association as well as Friends of the Lower Olentangy Watershed (FLOW) and as a result of the previously constructed Olentangy Water Trail access points. An ODNR NatureWorks grant was awarded to CRPD for this project in 2016. These improvements will serve both users of the Olentangy Water Trail and users of the community and would allow the Recreation and Parks Department to add greenspace. The Recreation and Parks Department has worked with the Fifth by Northwest Community, Friends of the Lower Olentangy and OSU students/staff, and other members of the local community to obtain input on the plan for the parkland/access.

The costs for this project will be $259,633.90 with a contingency of $25,963.39 and inspection fees for $25,000.00 for a total of $310,598.00.

Bids were advertised through Vendor Services, in accordance with City Code Section 329, on January 5th, 2017 and received by the Recreation and Parks Department on January 24th, 2017. Bids were received from the following companies:

Company Amount
