CIP - Culture and Recreation

CIP - Culture and Recreation

The Culture and Recreation portion of the proposed CIP totals $497,500 in FY2022. More information about the first year requests can be found below. Refer to the CIP book for FY2022-27 for a complete list of proposed projects for fiscal years 2023 through 2027.

Transfer to Capital Reserve - Parks/Playgrounds

Transfer of funds from the operating budget into reserve account for payment of future projects and equipment. This is revenue from the General Fund and ensures adequate funding is available for facility and infrastructure upgrades over time without gaps in funding.

Cost: $12,500

Park Infrastructure Replace/Maintenance

The 2020 Master Plan recommends a number of maintenance and upgrade items for parks throughout the city. These projects include replacing signage, increasing/replacing benches and other amenities, as well as replacing and maintaining playground equipment before a complete rehabilitation is required at a greater price. 

Cost: $75,000

Ice Arena Sprinkler System Replacement

This project would replace the sprinkler system at the Ice Area. During the annual inspection in 2019, the Inspection Coordinator noted that the system has several leaks. Also, there are low point auxiliary drains that are clogged and do not operate properly. The inspector recommends a full replacement instead of repairing the clogged and leaky lines to correct the problem.

Cost: $60,000

Ice Arena Ice Resurfacer Replacement

The project would replace one of the two ice resurfacing machines required by the Ice Arena to resurface the arena's two ice sheets hourly. The wet environment deteriorates the machine's metal to the point that it can't be safely repaired, which is the status of the area's oldest machine. Since it takes nearly a year to deliver a new ice resurfacer, it needs to be budgeted and ordered in 2022 to receive it by 2023.

Cost: $100,000

Skatepark Relocation

The project would relocate the existing skatepark to Guppey Park on Portland Avenue. The skatepark needs to be removed to make way for the waterfront development project on River Street.

Cost: $250,000
