Description/History

Gertie Barrett Park is an 8.1-acre undeveloped site located in the northwest quadrant of the city which was purchased by the Mansfield Park Facilities Development Corporation in 2009 for future development. The conceptual master plan includes the construction of a playground, splash pad, restrooms, pavilion, basketball court, looped trail, exercise stations and parking lot.

 

The professional services proposal from Dunaway Associates, L.P. is attached. As a first phase of work, Dunaway will perform a site opportunities evaluation, facilitate community input, prepare a master development plan with budget projections, and recommend a program for implementation of park improvements. In the second phase, Dunaway will provide schematic design, design development drawings, and final construction documents to be used for the purpose of bidding and construction. Staff is proposing to use a Construction Manager at Risk (CMAR) delivery method for the actual construction of the project. Funding for this project will be provided through general obligation bond funding issued in July 2021.

 

Justification

Development of the proposed park on Gertie Barrett Road will provide access to thousands of current residents, as well as thousands more in the future with three proposed residential developments in this immediate area.
