The need for this project is well established (see the associated 2014 feasibility study and the 2018 vision paper on the City website). The entire project is expected to cost approximately $27 million. At this juncture, project management and preliminary architect/engineering are needed beginning October 2018 to refine a plan for the project in order to (1) fit the project concept onto the existing City owned land with sufficient understanding to proceed with detailed, design/build or other alternative project delivery methods, and (2) define the cost of the project in order to proceed with its construction in 2019.
