Questions and Answers:
1. Does the City have a survey or will that need to be provided? If so, how much of the area will need to be surveyed? No survey needed.
2. How big is the park? City property at this site comprises approximately 40 acres, including some area, such as the City's earthen dam, that will remain off-limits.
3. Does the City have an anticipated schedule for completion of design and/or construction? Our schedule is to close out this project on or before November 1, 2023.
4. Will the project require public input? This project phase has had public input already. The designer's scope does not include additional public input, but a meeting with the public would be welcome prior to finalizing design. You can show that as an add alternate if you like.
5. Do you know how many interpretive signs would be needed for the project? No.
6. Do you know what type of information would be included on the interpretive signs (i.e. distorical, ecological, project data, etc.)? The Interpretive signs should provide useful, interesting information about watersheds, dams and reservoirs; natural and cultural history of the Blue Creek Reservoir and dam; and some of the plants and wildlife found here. We will also need a few warning and directional signs.
7. Do you have any pre-determined requirements or criteria for the canoe/kayak dock (i.e. size, materials, etc.)? The canoe/kayak dock should resemble the existing dock at this site.
8. Do you intend to fill an entire half acre with playground equipment, or will the playground be a smaller portion of the half acre site? The playground and its equipment will cover approximately a half-acre.
9. Has a playground vendor and/or equipment already been selected, or will that be part of the design process? This will be part of the design process.
