Thanks for your patience with this project. We have identified a source to close a $40k shortfall in the cost of the project. Our Capital and Natural Areas teams have communicated with the contractor who looks forward to signing a contract once the funding has been formally approved by the Recreation and Park Commission. Staff will bring the award of funding to the Recreation and Park Commission for approval in March. Construction should be able to commence in late-April/early-May depending on finalization of contract documents and the contractor’s availability. Alexis Ward and Lisa Wayne will keep you posted on our progress toward groundbreaking. I appreciate your commitment to this important resource for our city and look forward to your continued advocacy and partnership on Tank Hill.
