Explanation

This ordinance authorizes the Director of the Recreation and Parks Department to enter into contract with Security Risk Management Consultants, LLC (SRMC) for the review of department facilities for safety and security vulnerabilities due to lighting, landscaping, and absence of preventive security elements; and the design for upgrades to the facilities to improve the safety and security of assessed facilities.

Background: Recreation and Parks facilities serve as a primary link between the City and residents; and provide programming, services, and opportunities focused on physical and mental health, arts, youth services, and environmental programming designed to improve the overall well-being of our residents. The safety and security of staff and residents who use the facilities are essential to the success of recreation and parks in accomplishing the department mission “to connect the people of our community through the power of nature, wellness, and creativity.”

The purpose of the facility assessment project is to identify potential safety and security vulnerabilities that are created by the physical environment and attributes of department owned facilities. Identified vulnerabilities will be addressed through the pre-engineering and design of facility improvements that will mitigate or eliminate vulnerabilities created by the physical design of each facility.

Phase one (1) of the project will assess and design safety and security improvements for all community centers (27 total) that are not currently under renovation or construction. Department community centers impact the greatest number of residents city wide and represent the greatest opportunity to improve the safety and security of department facilities.

An additional phase(s) will be needed in the future to complete the rest of the department facilities, once funding can be identified.
