The voter approved 1/2 cent sales tax increase will fund the renovation of Anderson Park along with three other projects in Wheat Ridge. Plans call for the modernizing of Anderson Park with the addition of festival-friendly enhancements. Improvements being considered include:
Anderson Pool locker room renovations
Anderson Building - replace leaking roof, reconfigure the space to allow additional programming for fitness and wellness classes
Sports fields - replace baseball field with a multi-purpose sports field, reconstruct existing soccer field to provide a higher quality game field
Pavilion area - upgrade park pavilion and small shelter
Additional needs - parking lot improvements/resurfacing, waterline replacement
The Parks and Recreation Department published the Request for Qualifications (RFQ) for contracting with consultants to prepare the master plan. Submissions have been received and consultants were interviewed in February. The City awarded a contract to Moore Iacofano Goltsman, Inc. (MIG) in the amount of $124,950 for the Anderson Park Renovation Master Plan.
Opportunities for public input will be available this spring to gather input for the master plan. Please check back frequently for public input meeting dates, times and locations.
The master plan will then be presented to the Parks and Recreation Commission for input; before it is presented to City Council, for adoption in the fall 2017.
