For those tracking the status of the Simpson Stadium Dog Park Renovation Project. Please see below email we received from Beth from RPCA:
Good evening All,
Happy New Year. I hope you are all well and ready for better things in 2021!
The final comment period closed for the dog park renovation plans and we are now moving into construction solicitation. There are a few modifications requested on the plans to replace the sugar maples with a locally native tree and include stronger tree guards on the proposed trees in the dog park. We’re also going to change the gates from their current type to the gates at the dog park across the street.
I will keep you posted on the progress to get this through procurement. We are moving to put the funding into a requisition as soon as we can. We are experiencing some delays in procurement as our Purchasing Department is balancing regular work with procuring necessary supplies and equipment for the pandemic crisis. Please know that this is still a priority for RPCA and we are working to move this to construction. Once I have a firm solicitation schedule from Procurement, I can share more information on next steps.
Thank you all for your commitment to this project!
