Park & Hardscape Improvements

Lutz Park recently had some boat launch repair done to allow for smoother entry and departure from the boat landing.

Schaefer Park Hardscapes: We are currently removing and replacing the asphalt on all sides of the pavilion. The current asphalt has reached the end of its useful life and has shown all major categories of pavement surface distress. The pavement repairs will also address the ADA deficiencies documented for the pavilion. In addition to the new pavement being installed, the existing basketball court will be renovated to include two basketball hoops and painting of the basketball court keys. This will be completed by the end of May. The driveway going to the pavilion will also be replaced this summer.

Arbutus Retaining Wall: The existing retaining wall at Arbutus Park has reached the end of its useful life and has failed in several sections. We will be replacing the wall with a large gravity block retaining wall system. We currently have a contractor under contact and the work will begin soon and should be completed by the end of summer.

Kiwanis Park Hardscape Repairs:

KW hardWe are removing and replacing the asphalt on the north and west sides of the pavilion. The current asphalt has reached the end of its useful life and has shown all major categories of pavement surface distress. The pavement repairs will also address the ADA deficiencies documented for the pavilion. In addition to the new pavement being installed, the existing basketball court will be renovated to include two basketball hoops and painting of the basketball court keys.

Alicia Park Hillside Stabilization: In the spring of 2016 an approx. 100' section of the Alicia Park hillside had sheared off and slide down the hillside. A subsurface geotechnical study was then completed, and it was determined that subsurface water conditions in conjunction with the existing soils caused the failure. Our recommendatAlicia hillions for repair concluded that, in the area of failure, we will remove poor soils and install a drain tile system that will divert the subsurface water to a location downslope where it will daylight, thus eliminating the sheer stresses that caused the failure. We currently have a contractor under contract and they have started repairs and plan to be completed by mid June.
