The Campbell City Council has approved funding for park renovations. The City of Campbell Public Works Department is currently soliciting licensed contractors, through the public bidding process, for updating the play structures at Jack Fischer Park, with construction anticipated to be complete by summer 2017. There are two play structures the City is planning to renovate, the tot-lot (2-5 yrs) and the school age (5-12 yrs). New facilities will fit within the existing play area footprints and are subject to current safety standards.
The City concluded conducting a three week public outreach program to solicit input from park users. The outreach program had both social media and personal contact components. Results of the outreach can be found here (http://www.cityofcampbell.com/683/Envision-Campbell-Forum) under the “Closed Topics” tab. From the public outreach, Public Works has been able to compile a comprehensive representation of Jack Fischer Park’s usage as well as what users would like to see in a new facility.
Public Works considered a number of conceptual designs and selected one that most closely addressed the needs of the site including the responses collected from the public survey. The conceptual design was presented to the Parks and Recreation Commission on November 2, 2016. Comments from the Commission have been incorporated into a revised conceptual design. See the slideshow below.
The project was presented and approved by City Council on December 6, 2016.
The Project was advertised on December 14, 2016 and is currently out to bid. Bid information as well as the project fact sheet can be found under “Bid Postings” on the City webpage (http://www.cityofcampbell.com/bids.aspx). Bids are due to the City Clerk at Campbell City Hall by 3:00 p.m. on Tuesday, January 24, 2017.
