Information
Item
Approval Transfer of Appropriation for trail development along Route 66 adjacent to Arcadia Lake from available project funds; $2,605,000.
Background
This is a transfer of appropriation from the Hafer Park Ball Field project which will not be ready for bidding until FY 19-20.

This project comes as part of a grant request that was initiated back in 2010. Originally, it was anticipated to be split into two projects, but the Oklahoma Department of Transportation (ODOT) is prepared to proceed with both projects in an April bid letting. The total project cost based on their project estimate is $3,775,000. ODOT is contributing $1,173,000, which leaves a
City share of $2,602,000.

The trail design is a 10' wide bicycle path with an additional 8' wide pedestrian path on the Corps property at Arcadia Lake adjacent to the roadway on Route 66 from Midwest to Post Road.
 
Time Frame
The project is scheduled for the April 2019 ODOT bidding letting.  We have not seen the construction time frame in the bid documents, but would assume a 12 month contract.
Issue
The trail does not connect to the existing Spring Creek Trail.
Recommendations
The CIP Advisory Board considered the project at their Special Meeting on February 26.  The vote to approve was 5-5 which comes to the City Council as a failure to recommend.  The split vote was due to the location of the trail. Even though today the proposed trail does not connect with the existing trail development around the lake, it does connect Central State Park, Edmond Park and the Park Office and overlook.  It also leads out to Edmond 66 Park.  The members that voted against the request were concerned that it was isolated from the current trail.  Staff can not promise when the trails connect, but we will work diligently with the Coalition to raise funds and we will actively pursue additional grants to make the connection.  Once we make that connection the trail would cover the most popular points around the lake.
Action Needed
Approval of the Transfer of Appropriation.
