Progress to Date
February 14, 2018: The overall project is considered substantially complete which means the owner has obtained a temporary occupancy permit and can utilize the park and sports fields for public use. Construction of the four multipurpose fields (10 ½ acres of turf), sports and parking lot lighting and public restroom are 100 % completed. Winter weather in January and rain events in February have hampered the contractor’s ability to complete stabilization of some of the parks common areas. Over the next 30 calendars days, the contractor will work on project completion of grass stabilization of common areas and project closeout items.
September 2017: All overall site work for the complex is 100% complete. The sports lighting system foundations, poles (quantity 11), underground electrical conduit and parking lot lights are 100% complete. Construction work related to the four multipurpose sports fields is 90% completed. The sports field synthetic turf and shock pad on over 10 acres of synthetic fields has been installed. The organic infill and sand mixture designed to hold the turf in place and provide for a high-end playing surface is 75% completed. The building metal framing, exterior sheathing, and roofing work is 90% completed. Building mechanical, electrical, and plumbing rough-in has begun. Site irrigation and grading adjacent to the fields is now 90% completed.
February 2017: During February, the contractor will be installing a new sewer line within Greenwood Road from the intersection of Greenwood Road & Braxton Avenue to the new park entrance. Construction work will occur Monday thru Friday between 9 AM and 3:30 PM per the attached diagram.
