This is an update on the repairs to benches and Lithia Fountains being done in the Plaza as requested by several Council members.
The Parks and Public Works departments have been working on repairing damaged benches and water fountains in the Plaza. The Parks department indicated the repaired benches will be back in place by May 17th. The benches were refurbished requiring little in the way of materials and limited staff time.
We have received both positive and negative comments regarding location of the benches around the fountains. Now is a good time if changes in location are desired. Unless otherwise directed by Council the benches will be returned to the same positions.
Fountain repairs are being managed by Public Works and are more time consuming. A Request for Proposals for architectural options to replace or refurbish the fountain is in process with a proposal due date of June 1, 2006. A long lead time and wide distribution was used to generate sufficient proposals and ideas. The magnitude and timeline for the project will be determined after proposals are received. At that time more information can be provided to Council on scope and timing.
