The City will issue $4.29 million for several different projects:
Highland Village Road Sidewalk includes the construction of a sidewalk on Highland Village Road from the Municipal Complex to Sellmeyer Lane to increase pedestrian safety and connect residents to amenities along Highland Village Road. Engineering design has begun on this project. Construction is estimated to begin late summer 2018 and complete, weather permitting, by spring 2019.
Brazos Park parking lot expansion includes constructing 50 additional spaces to the existing parking lot. Popularity of the Brazos Park fields prompted the need to add more parking spaces. The City has contracted with RLG Consulting Engineering for this project. Design work will soon begin with construction anticipated to begin in summer 2018 and complete, weather permitting, by fall 2018.
Unity Park will see an area redeveloped to add an additional softball field, Kids Kastle will be replaced with a new but similarly styled play area and the ponds will be dredged to remove accumulated silt and address drainage issues. The engineering and design services for the new softball field are currently under staff review. City staff is currently gathering design firm information from municipalities that have had Kids Kastle type of play structures replaced or installed. Once a design firm is selected, City staff will begin the process of community input and involvement for the design and construction of Kids Kastle.
Victoria Park walking track will be replaced once the City receives approval from ONCOR; engineering and design services have been secured.
