Brentwood Skate Park Preliminary Site Master Plan and related budget
(CIP Project No. 522-5213, Skateboard Park).
Bronzan, Director of Parks and Recreation
Approve the recommendation from the Park and Recreation Commission
to approve the City of Brentwood Skate Park Preliminary Site Master
Plan and related budget.
The Council Park and
Recreation sub-committee held a community meeting on September 16, 1999,
to discuss the possibility of building a skate park in Brentwood.
The City Council passed Resolution No. 99-225 on October 12,
1999, amending the 1999-2004 Capital Improvement Program to include
construction of a skate park in Brentwood (CIP #No. 522-5213) and directing
the parks and recreation director to return to City Council for the
award of the construction contract.
The Park and Recreation Commission and Youth Commission held
a joint special meeting on October 18, 1999, to consider forming a task
force for the development of a skate park.
The City Council approved the establishment of a Skate Park Task
Force on October 26, 1999. The
City Council authorized the City Manager to execute a professional services
agreement with Land Image on January 11, 2000, for the design of the
City of Brentwood Skate Park.
BACKGROUND As a result
of the January 11, 2000, City Council action, the Skate Park Task Force
held two public meetings. The
first meeting was held at Brentwood Elementary School on February 5,
2000. The meeting was attended by over 30 people, who worked with Land
Image staff on drawings and clay sculptures related to the types of
amenities that should be in a Brentwood skate park.
The second meeting was held on March 4, 2000, in the City Council
Chambers to review the conceptual plan designed by Land Image as a result
of the input from the meeting on February 5th.
The Skate Park Task Force approved the conceptual plan and sent
the plan to the Park and Recreation Commission for their approval.
Park and Recreation Commission reviewed the plan and proposed budget
at their March 30, 2000, commission meeting.
As the skate park originated with the Council Park and Recreation
sub-committee, the Park and Recreation Commission has approved the preliminary
site plan and is recommending
that City Council concur with their recommendation by approving the
approved 1999/04 CIP budget for the Skateboard Park (CIP No. #522-5213)
is $400,000 ($30,000 design/$370,000 construction). In the preliminary CIP budget that was reviewed with City Council
on April 3rd, staff had recommended the 2000/01 budget as:
reviewing the proposed budget for this project as presented by Land
Image, the Park and Recreation Commission has made a recommendation
to revise the 2000/01 CIP budget for the Skate Park as follows:
$517,667 (construction cost of $470,667 plus 10% contingency)
Administration $52,000 (10%
of construction costs)
Park and Recreation Commission understands this action would require
a revised CIP budget increase of $119,667, money which would reduce
funding for additional projects.
However, they feel that this project deserves an adequate budget
for total design.
the City Council feel that this is too large an increase, the Park and
Recreation Commission has provided a second option that would remove
three additive items that could be considered at a later date:
trellis and columns ($25,000); decorative steel fencing ($30,000);
and decorative gate and signage ($9,500).
The recommended budget for option #2 is:
$447,167(includes 10% contingency)
#2 would require an increase in the 2000/01 CIP Skate Park budget of
$41,167. The Park
and Recreation Commission would still recommend the three items be listed
as additive items in the bid packet to be funded if the bids come in
Image representatives will be at the council meeting to discuss the
preliminary plan and proposed budget along with members of the Skate
Park Task Force.
of the plan and budget by City Council will move the process forward
with Land Image preparing construction documents for a mid-summer bid
schedule, with construction expected to start in late August.
