Can you provide an update on when construction will start (and finish) for the approved Coyote Crossing Park in the Dominion at Panther Creek neighborhood?

Todd,

Thanks for your note regarding the development of the Coyote Crossing neighborhood park.

The park consultant has completed the design documents for the park and it appears that public bidding for the development will take place during the month of March.

Once this has occured, our staff will present this to the City Council for their approval, likely in April.

Once approved by the City Council, the contractor will execute their contract and make plans to mobilize their forces for work to begin.

Based on the information referenced above, this would allow for initial construction to commence in late May or early June. Once construction has begun, I anticipate that there will be a period of 7-9 months needed for completion.

I hope that this has shed some light on the project. Should you have any additional questions, please feel free to let me know.

Thanks,

Rick Wieland

Rick,
In all past Coyote Crossing Park planning meetings, it was stated that the park should be completed by this summer, 2007. You're now saying that it won't be open until at least 1Q08. I believe many kids and parents were looking forward to using the park this summer.. not a year from now. Why the delay?

Brian,

In the meetings that were held, Staff indicated that it was our goal to have the park completed by summer to allow the grass to grow in during the warmer temperatures. The schedule that Rick offered in the previous post is somewhat conservative. We have had a few bumps that have pushed the construction start date back later than I would have liked but it is still possible that the park will be completed this year. We will try to have the grass planted and growing this summer but all the other features of the park may not be completed by the end of summer.

Brian,

Thanks for your question regarding the construction status for Coyote Crossing neighborhood park located in the Dominion development.

As you might know, the City Council approved the bid for the park's construction in May. Since that time, as you might know, all of our park construction projects have been hindered by an abnormal amount of rainfall.

In projects such as Coyote Crossing, the contractor had just been able to begin doing some site work when inclement weather began to disrupt their work schedule.

As the site begins to dry out, the contractor will attempt to finalize their grading activities and begin to implement other site improvements.

Based on the information referenced above, I would anticipate that there will be about 6-7 months of construction work needed to complete the park. Hopefully, better weather conditions will assist the contractor in their work.

Should you have any additional questions about the park, please feel free to let me or any of our staff know.

Thanks again for your note and interest.

Thanks for your note regarding the latest progress of Coyote Crossing neighborhood park. The contractor is currently laying sod and working on the irrigation.

There are some additional trees that have been added due some trees that needed to be mitigated for the subdivision. This was added to the project near the end of construction and has delay completion slightly. The developer has indicated that they would begin planting those trees this coming week.

All in all I think the contractor will be done with the majority of the park by the end of the month. They will then need to work on punch-list items and the artist will need to install the artwork in the beginning of February.

Should you have any additional qeuestions regarding this, please let me know.

Thanks again for your note and interest.

Has the artwork that was to be installed in February been completed? Respectfully, an unattractive shapely cement structure was placed near the park entrance. It appears to have not yet been completed. Seems to need more construction and/or paint. Is that the case or is this supposed to be the final product?

ALSO, will the dirt trench in the middle of the park become covered in grass or will it be filled with water? Thanks.

Brian,

Thanks for your note. In regard to your question about the art work at Coyote Crossing neighborhood park, I would offer the following.

The concrete pillar is curing out before the art piece is attached to the top of structure. The pillar will be painted when art piece is installed. Richard Oldham, Public Arts Director for the City of Frisco, is in contact with the artist scheduling a time for installation. I do not know when that time is at this point, but should happen soon.

As for the dirt trench in the middle of the park, it provides drainage for the park and the school site. The rains may have washed some sod loose possibly clogging and slowing the drain in that area. This area should only have water in it when it rains. The only area that has not been completed is by the creek on the north side of the playground. The park is still under construction with hopes for completion very soon.

Any updates as to when the concrete pillar will be completed and painted? It's been there for several months and two months since your response back on the time for curing. Thanks.

Mr. Sadofsky
I was asked to touch base with you regarding an update on the art work for Coyote. The artist have arranged for a painter to prepare and paint the column prior to their installation of the art piece. The painter is scheduled the week after Memorial Day. The artwork will be scheduled soon after that. Thanks for your interest. We are all looking forward to the installation of this work. If you have any more questions about this project or the Public Art program in general feel free to contact me directly.

Doesn't lool like any progress was made the week after Memorial Day or in the weeks after that. Just checking back to see where things are at?
Neighbors and I look forward to the art work finally reaching completion. The uncompleted art work is a bit of an eye soar at present. Thanks.
