Parks and Recreation Facilities Assessment

The City is conducting a Facilities Assessment of its parks and recreation facilities to help develop a long-term plan for maintaining, renovating, and ultimately replacing facilities. Over the past decade, the City completed several plans and studies on its parks and facilities. These plans and studies - along with site visits, discussions with staff, and public input - will be used to develop the assessment. The assessment will document existing conditions, project anticipated life cycles, and estimate replacement costs. This information will then be used to determine how to fund long-term costs. 

The City recently completed a Request for Proposal (RFP) process to solicit proposals from firms who conduct facility assessment work. In September, City Council awarded the Facilities Assessment project to Kitchell out of Sacramento. Kitchell is a leader in facility assessments and construction management. The project kicked- off in December 2018 and is expected to be complete in summer 2019.  

March 2019 Update

The Parks & Facilities Assessment is underway and on schedule.  The project began in December 2018 and the team from Ktichell is in the process of conducting site visits and collecting data. The following has been completed to date:

  • Dec 3-7: Focus group discussions with parks and facility users; data collection for sample report
  • Jan 28 - Feb 1: Park site visits and data collection (Round 1)
  • Feb 25 - March 1: Facility site visits and data collection

Park site visits and data collection will continue through the month of March.  A pilot report is expected in spring 2019 with a final report and presentation to City Council anticipated for June 2019.
