Estimated Construction Schedule: Slated to begin March, 2022 and is anticipated to be completed October, 2022.
Construction Contract Amount: Pending
Project ID #: 2248
Description: This is project is a fire recovery project involving 6 city parks that were partially destroyed during the Tubbs Fire in 2017. The affected parks are Fir Ridge Park, Francis Nielsen Park, Nagasawa Park, Rincon Ridge Park, Rincon Ridge Open Space, and Parker Hill Open Space. The intended purpose of this project is to restore all parks to their pre fire condition with the exception of code-related upgrades. Additionally, as a result of community feedback, a new playground facility will be installed at Fir Ridge Park.

October 2021 Update: In May 2021, the City was awarded approximately $34M in Federal Housing and Urban Development Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) funding. Since award of this funding, staff has been working to determine eligibility of several City projects to receive CDBG funding, the Six Fire Damages Parks - Recovery project included. Project design is complete, however due to grant funding requirements, the City needed to determine if the project was eligible before bidding the contract. While staff found this project is not eligible for CDBG funding, it is still eligible for a mix of FEMA Disaster Recovery funding and City local match funds.

Project bid release is expect November 2021 with construction activities anticipated to begin Spring 2022. The overall duration will last approximately 30 weeks (weather dependent).

Next project update anticipated January 2022.
