Executive Summary:

At the June 20, 2017 City Commission meeting, the City Commission authorized staff to negotiate a design contract with Bartlett & West Engineers.  Bartlett & West is familiar with the project and has obtained a majority of the survey information needed during the concept stage.  


Bartlett & West will prepare final design plans for reconstruction of 9th Street from New Hampshire to Pennsylvania to meet the ‘basic street’ design concept presented by staff.  The design will include reconstruction with concrete pavement, storm sewer, 6’ sidewalks on both sides of street, on-street parking, pedestrian lighting, street trees, retaining walls and preserving green space.  The design will not include bike facilities, underground electrical or decorative street lighting poles at intersections.


A public meeting will be held at field check stage (50% plans complete) to discuss construction schedule and impacts with the neighbors and adjacent property owners.  The estimated construction cost is $2,100,000 and the design fee of $169,000 is approximately 8.0% of the total construction cost and in-line with the city design fee guidelines.
