Body
DISCUSSION / BACKGROUND
The FY 2021-22 Parks budget included $50,000 in General Fund to install a playground at Forebay Park in Pollock Pines. In addition, the California Drought, Water, Parks, Climate, Coastal Protection, and Outdoor Access for All Act of 2018 (Prop 68) Per Capita program allocated $400,000 in per capita funding to the County in 2021. On September 21, 2021, the Board allocated $300,000 of this funding for construction of a restroom at this site. The Board also allocated $3 million of ARPA funding for park renovation. This brings the total funding for park improvements to $3,350,000. On October 18, 2022, the Board received a presentation on community engagement efforts and the conceptual design for Forebay Park. The Board approved the design and directed staff to proceed with the environmental review process, and with developing a phasing plan and construction documents based on available funding and community priorities and implementing the park improvements (Legistar Item #22-1822). The Phasing Plan (Attachment C), and a Statement of Probable Costs (Attachment D) have been completed, with a total cost of $3,719,568.
