The contract to replace the playground at Indian Hills Park is anticipated to be bid beginning 3/1/2018 and opened on 3/15/2018. Pending a successful bid opening, work on the contract (which includes playground replacements at Dudgeon School, Indian Hills and Odana Hills Parks) will begin on or before 5/14/2018 at Odana Hills Park. Work at Indian Hills Park will begin shortly thereafter. All project sites within the contract are anticipated to be completed on or before early August 2018.
Parks began public meetings to discuss the project in advance of the finalization of the budget to keep the planning and construction bidding process on-schedule for construction in 2018. The first of two meetings was held on October 26th to discuss playground equipment age range, surfacing, proposed project location, timeframe and budget. Materials from that session can be found at the links, below.
There were no attendees from the neighborhood present at the second meeting (on 11/29 at Sequoya Library) for Indian Hills Park to vote from among two proposals from the manufacturer (Playworld) selected during the first workshop meeting for the specific equipment to be installed at the park; however Indian Hills Neighborhood Association stepped forward with a survey conducted via Next Door and received 15 votes, with a majority preference for Option #2, so Parks staff will proceed with that directive. Both proposals are shown, below, in the colors (dark green and browns) and age-range (5-12) that were also selected during the first workshop session.
