It is a 5 Phase plan which we will start Phase 1 in July of this year 2020. We go to bid on the Phase 1 part of the plan this February. We decide on the bid by June and work begins July if all goes as planned.
What is in the plan?
No more dirt roads!
-The entire complex will be paved with much needed parking for hundreds of vehicles. Curbs, painted parking spots, turnarounds will be included.
-Infrastructure will be put under the parking lot for Sewage, Electrical, Potable Water.
-There will be parking lot lighting for the entire park which will make our Hickman facility much safer.
-We will be adding two very much needed permanent bathroom facilities.
That is 8 million dollars for the first Phase.
We will be planning the next couple phases and the City is planning to help raise money for the next phases. But we at Hickman will have to do fundraising and other ways to raise that money. We look forward to our next opportunity and working with the City to better our park.
We would lastly like to thank Councilmember Chris Cate and the rest of the City staff for their hard work in raising money and making this happen.
