City Council Allocates Funding for Design of Bike Skills Area at Deane's Children's Park
On July 19, 2022, staff provided an update to the City Council on work to date on the Bike Skills Area, including the Parks & Recreation Commission's discussions about the facility and their recommendation to site a new Bike Skills Area facility in Deane's Children's Park. Staff also requested funding to begin the design and public engagement portions of the project.
After a robust discussion with staff and members of the Parks & Recreation Commission, that included consideration of the project schedule, the potential footprint of the BSA in Deane's Children's Park, and community engagement, both past and future, the Council voted to authorize the use of $75,000 from the Capital Improvement Fund balance to begin design of the new facility (5-0-1).
In fall 2022, staff will bring the 30% design of a Deane's Children's Park BSA to the Parks & Recreation Commission for review and feedback, and will kick-off the public engagement process to ensure that the community has an integral voice in this new, upgraded amenity.
This project has concluded. Please see the New Bike Skills Area at Deane's Children's Park project page for the latest project information and to leave feedback on the proposed Bike Skills Area at Deane’s Children’s Park.
