This project funds design and/or construction of new and reconstruction projects generally less than $300,000. Projects include a variety of improvements at local parks, such as new picnic shelters, stormwater management and drainage upgrades, parking lot expansions, retaining walls, and sewer improvements. A separate project funds similar tasks at regional and recreational (non-local) parks. These level-of-effort PDFs address a variety of needs in our park system and reduce proliferation of new stand-alone PDFs.

Cost Change

Increase in the level-of-effort to address higher construction costs and additional regulatory requirements, i.e. water quality permits, sediment control and ADA regulations, which increase costs.
