Accept informational report.
At the April 9, 2002 CIP workshop, staff was directed to return in 30 days to discuss ways the City of Brentwood and Liberty Union High School District (LUHSD) may be able to work together on the pool and gymnasium at Heritage High School. At the May 14, 2002, City Council meeting, staff requested this item be brought back for consideration at the May 28, 2002, City Council meeting.
As a part of the April 9, 2002 CIP workshop, staff reported on two joint-use projects with Liberty Union High School District that were listed in the proposed 2002/2007 CIP program as unfunded: development of a 50-meter pool; and construction of an office/storage space in the gymnasium. As these projects were unfunded, staff had requested time to work on options that could be considered by City Council. Dan Smith, LUHSD Superintendent indicated that a decision would need to be made in 30 days as LUHSD was at a point where they needed to give specific direction to their architect as to a final design. Staff was directed to return in 30 days (May 14th City Council meeting) to discuss options.
City of Brentwood and LUHSD staff have had numerous meetings to develop options for consideration that would keep the joint-use projects alive. At the suggestion of Dan Smith, one option would be to provide direction to the architect to provide parallel designs: one for a 25-meter pool and one for a 50-meter pool. As Heritage High School is not scheduled to go out to bid for a year, there is no necessity to determine exact funding until next year’s CIP. Dan Smith has requested a cost estimate from the architect for these two designs. Staff had intended to return at the City Council meeting on May 28, 2002 to discuss the implications of this proposal and consideration of funding options. However, staff is continuing to work on actual design costs and guiding principals for the project and will be bringing a final recommendation back at the June 11, 2002, City Council meeting. This two-week additional delay does not impact the design schedule for LUHSD.
None at this time.
