The much anticipated dog park is taking shape. While the project is currently in the design phase, the city has been working with an architectural design firm to develop the design plans for the renovation. The design is undergoing revisions and is being reviewed by both the Community Services Commission and city staff to ensure that it aligns with the community's needs and expectations.
Funded by California Proposition 68. The City of Kingsburg was awarded $1.244 million during the round 4 application process to renovate the existing dog park located at 1225 Laurel Street. On April 19, 2023, council authorized the City Manager to execute the Kingsburg Dog Park Task Order in the amount of $108,500 with Peters Engineering Group for completion of the design phase of this project. Since then, several crucial initial tasks have been successfully completed to lay the groundwork for the renovation project.
During the August 2, 2023 City Council meeting, Community Services Director Adam Castaneda gave an update on the Dog park and discussed the current timeline. He will bring the final design to council in November and hopes to start construction in the spring of 2024.
The current timeline for the project is as follows:
July 2023 – December 2023 - Community Services Commission Review and Final Design of Project January 2024 - Project Bid Process and Award February 2024 - Enter Construction Phase June 30, 2024 - Project Completion, project open to the public, final payment request. June 30, 2028 - End of grant performance period.
To ensure transparency and gather valuable feedback, the city plans to provide one additional update to the Community Services Commission and City Council in November. During this session, the final design details and plans for the park will be presented before the project documents are finalized and put out to bid.
