IMPROVEMENT BOND PROJECTS
PROJECTS UNDER DESIGN:
2018-19 Park Improvements Project (C5036)
This project will include the renovation of Golden Hills Park, Highland Park and pathway improvements at John Muir Park and Alhambra Avenue Park. The Parks Recreation Marina and Cultural Commission’s (PRMCC) Park Subcommittee helped scope the projects to be designed. A neighborhood workshop was held on May 17, 2018, with input from approximately 35 residents. The Parks Subcommittee met on December 12, 2018, and February 25, 2019, and received updated plans from the City Engineer for the various parks being improved. The City Council initially approved this project as part of the Fiscal Year 2017-18 Capital Improvement Program budget which allocated $1,200,000 of Measure H funds. On April 17, 2019, the City Council allocated an additional $870,354 of Measure H funds toward Project C5036 (along with allocations of Gas Tax for Reliez trail improvements; Park and Recreation fees for refurbishing the tennis courts at Golden Hills Park, and Park In-Lieu fees for the Romtec modular building at Golden Hills Park).
Work is starting this summer and the City hopes to have the project completed by the end of 2019.
