COUNCIL AGENDA ITEM NO. 14
to proceed with putting the Skateboard Park Project (CIP #522-5213) out
D. Bronzan, Director of Parks and Recreation
Approved by: Jon Elam, City Manager
the authorization for staff to put the skate park project out to bid.
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. On
April 11, 2000, City Council approved the Park and Recreation Commission
recommendation to approve the Brentwood Skate Park preliminary site master
plan and related budget (CIP Project #522-5213).
the April 11th approval of the preliminary site master plan,
staff has been working with Land Image to produce the final construction
documents for the skate park. The
project has been very involved, as the skate park has had to be coordinated
with completion of the aquatic complex. As the aquatic complex opened late, final design of the skate
park had to slow until the final utility connections and undergroundi
work was completed.
the process has been longer than anticipated, with the assistance of Pacific
Program Management, construction managers of the aquatic complex, much
of the pre-connection prep work for the skate park has been completed.
Lines for irrigation control, water, phone and electrical have
been stubbed out, so the skate park now only needs to connect to these
lines that are already in place.
process was also delayed as staff directed Land Image to design the landscape
areas between the skate park and aquatic complex, and between the skate
park and Griffith Lane. It
is important to have the aquatic complex, skate park and adjacent road
landscape in place once the skate park is open. Otherwise, we will establish a number of isolated facilities
that do not provide connections for use.
The original plan was for the landscape to wait until the park
behind the aquatic complex was completed.
However, that park is not expected to be started until next year,
which would come after the skate park opening.
Image has provided the City with final construction documents that are
currently under a constructability review through Pacific Program Management.
This review is expected to be completed on September 28th.
Land Image will then revise any necessary changes on the documents.
City Council authorization will allow staff to put the documents out to bid.
