Background: This ordinance is to authorize the Director of the Recreation and Parks Department to enter into contract with Orchard, Hiltz, & McCliment Inc.

Goodale Park is a public park in the Victorian Village area of Columbus, Ohio. It was donated to the city in 1851 by Lincoln Goodale. The Friends of Goodale Park community group have been requesting improvements identified in this project and have been integrally involved in the development of this project. Improvements include new water connections for irrigation of community gardens and plantings. New lighting along walkways for improved safety are included as well as converting existing lighting fixtures to LED, increasing energy efficiency. Gazebo renovations include improved ADA access and functional use of the facility for public use.

Construction is expected to start in the Fall of 2020 and finish by the end of Winter 2020/2021. Funding has been identified through the Urban Infrastructure Recovery Fund (UIRF).

RFP’s were sent to our pre-qualified consultants listed for staff augmentation services, in accordance with City Code Section 329, on May 14, 2019 and received by the Recreation and Parks Department on May 20, 2019. This project falls under that selection process, per 2453-2018 and 0433-2020, but is being legislated to utilize UIRF funds for the design.
