*Due to an aggressive City-wide Capital Improvement Project (CIP) agenda, in addition to City staffing shortages, time frames have been pushed back and are subject to change.
This project is funded in the City’s Capital Improvements Program (CIP) with staggered amounts in Fiscal Year 2021 (for site plan work) and Fiscal Year 2023 (for construction). Costs are unknown until a Master Park Plan is developed.
