Almost there…

Here’s the deal: The skatepark bids came in too high for what we had left in the budget. Our original budget was developed with consultation of industry experts. However, BASIC is excited to say we just received an additional $75,000 from Vermont Community Foundation Withington Fund! Our next step is to re-scope the project and find potential elements for town staff to complete. This means before going out to bid again, we will determine what aspects of the work can be pulled out of the bid package and done by town staff and/or others such as parking, walkway, landscaping, earth moving, etc. It’s the hope and goal to have this equal the remaining $21,000. Rest assured, the skatepark design itself will not be effected by these changes. Bid packages are anticipated to be sent out by the end of this month with the ultimate goal of having the skatepark built in the fall.
