This ordinance is to authorize the Director of the Recreation and Parks Department to modify the contract with OHM for additional design work associated with the Davis Center Renovation Project.

Background: OHM Advisors entered into contract with the Department of Recreation and Parks to prepare construction documents for the renovations to the Davis Center. Those plans include exterior modifications and improvements as well as interior. Plans will include replacing electrical, HVAC, windows, reconfigure rooms, new floors, painting, upgrading plumbing, ADA upgrades and replacing the terraces on the front and back of the building. This modification includes $50,000.00 needed for completion of the necessary construction documents. This modification is necessary as a result of evaluation that was completed to determine the scope of the proposed renovations and to coordinate the improvements with the Franklin Conservatory.

There was no quorum during the July Recreation and Parks Commission Meeting. Per the present Commissioners this ordinance was requested to be sent thru the legislation approval process in order to avoid a delay with this project. There is August recess for Commission and Council.
