Memorial Park Reconstruction Is Completed
Over the past year, we have been reporting on our plans and our efforts to complete a much needed capital improvement project at Memorial Park. We are pleased to report that the Park reconstruction has not only been completed but it has been completed four weeks ahead of schedule.
The project began in late March with the demolition of the tennis and basketball courts and the walkway around the perimeter of the Park and in front of the concession stand. These sites were then re-graded for correct slope; new drainage drywells and posts with concrete footings were installed; and asphalt was put down. Sealant, line painting, and decorative paint was applied to the courts and a new perimeter fence along the walkway was installed.
The construction was handled by Metro Paving, located in West Babylon. In February, Metro Paving was awarded the winning bid at $239,000, which includes materials, labor, and construction. Expenses associated with design and engineering is expected to be under $40,000 That brings the total projected cost to $279,000. To offset this cost, the Village has $200,000 available in capital improvement grants from NYS Senator Jack Martins and $75,000 set aside from prior budget years. Although there are bills still outstanding, we remain confident that the actual cost to the Village for this capital improvement project will remain within budget.
We are pleased that the reconstruction has been completed just in time for everyone to enjoy summer events and activities in Memorial Park. We appreciate everyone’s patience and cooperation during the reconstruction project.
