With bids coming in higher than expected, Edgewood Companies decided to rebid the Bonanza Park project in South Lake Tahoe.
People are expected to be using the Y area park in 2012. The plan is construction will start as close to May 1 as weather allows.
Brandon Hill with Edgewood Companies told Lake Tahoe News a decision should be made this month regarding who the contractor will be. Two finalists are in the running. Originally the company had expected to spend about $200,000 on the nearly 1 acre park.
Hill said, “The dog park was scraped by the community and the council. We were happy to accommodate the desires on the majority of stakeholders.”
Amenities will include:
• large turf area
• walking path
• children’s play area and equipment
• half court basketball
• horseshoe toss
• picnic pods
• native demonstration plantings
• programable LED lighting
• low flow irrigation
• permanent BMPs to handle storm flows.
