Explanation

This ordinance is to authorize the Director of the Recreation and Parks Department to enter into contract with Builderscape, Inc. for the construction of improvements at Harrison Smith Park.

Background: Harrison Smith Park is a 20 acre neighborhood park that features a loop path, open shelter, playground, outdoor fitness station, and a beautiful wooded wetland. However, the park’s low lying topography renders several of these amenities seasonally unusable. This project will provide improvements to the park to address drainage issues and increase functionality. Improvements include a 5,000 SF bio-retention basin featuring native plants that will absorb and treat stormwater runoff, installation of a wetland observation platform, repair and replacement of asphalt paths, replacement of parking lot pavement, and new site furnishings.

Total cost for the project will not exceed $165,713.

Bids were advertised through Vendor Services, in accordance with City Code Section 329, on June 1, 2018 and received by the Recreation and Parks Department on June 19, 2018.
