Dow Park Pavilion Project The City entered into a contract with Halff Associates as the architect designing the project. The project is funded with $1.5 million from Type B sales tax. The new restroom buildings were installed and progress continues on the pavilion structures. The City terminated the contract with the initial general contractor and awarded a contract for the completion of the project to Millis Construction. The project is scheduled for completion by fall 2018. The CorWorth Concession and Restroom includes 2 pre-fabricated buildings. One, with concession and storage, for the Adult Softball facility on Pasadena Blvd. and the other one with restrooms for the Claude Burgess Center. The total cost for both buildings is $284,243. The facilities have been set in their respective locations. Maxwell Adult Center This project was one of seven approved projects in the 2015 Type B dedicated sales tax election that was voted for by Deer Park residents. The project is funded with $2 million from Type B sales tax. The City of Deer Park selected Halff Associates as the architect and Frost Construction as the general contractor for the project. Construction began in November of 2017. Demo of the interior and site

PARKS & RECREATION
Project Update preparation for the new addition has been completed. The project is about 60% complete with an expected completion date in fall 2018. Girls Softball Complex - This project was identified as one of seven approved projects in the 2015 Type B dedicated sales tax election that was voted for by Deer Park residents. This project is funded by $3 million from Type B sales tax. The City selected Tandem Services as the general contractor and Halff Associates as the architect for this project. Construction began in January 2018. The project is on schedule to be completed in early to mid-fall 2018. New Soccer Complex - This project is another one of the seven approved projects in the 2015 Type B dedicated sales tax election. The project is being funded with $4 million from Type B sales tax. The City of Deer Park selected Halff Associates as the architect and Tandem Services as the general contractor. Construction began in January 2018. The project is on schedule and is expected to be completed in early 2019.
CorWorth Concession and Restrooms - This project includes 2 pre-fabricated CorWorth restrooms. One, with concession and storage, for the Adult Softball facility on Pasadena Blvd. and the other one with restrooms for the Claude Burgess Center. The total cost for both buildings is $284,243. This project is about 90% complete with a sidewalk to be completed. The facilities are already set in their respective locations.
Wayfinding Program - A comprehensive wayfinding program was developed to educate and direct visitors to Deer Park, as well as engage those that are unaware of what the City has to offer. The Deer Park Civic Wayfinding System is intended to celebrate the history and vibrancy of the area, while giving special attention to the parks, recreation, and open spaces of Deer Park. The Cityâ€™s approach was to implement the wayfinding system in phases over a period of several fiscal years. The wayfinding signs are classified as primary vehicular signs, secondary vehicular signs, tertiary vehicular signs, and monument signs (located in front of a park or city building). Approximately 90% of Phase 1 has been completed. National Signs is the contractor approved to complete all phases of the project. This project is being funded out of hotel occupancy tax (HOT) revenues. The Phase 1 signs are being adjusted and, at this time, 18 wayfinding signs are scheduled to be installed along Center Street and the surrounding perimeters of the city by the end of 2018. Four monument signs are already installed in parks around the city. Future phases are contingent upon the completion of the adjustments of the Phase 1 signs.
Deer Park Nature Preserve - Phase 1 was part of a voter approved General Obligation Bond program. $500,000 is allocated in bond funding for this project. The City applied for and received a Texas Parks and Wildlife Grant in the maximum amount of $400,000 of which the City will match an equal amount. The project will consist of a parking area, decomposed granite trails, a gateway structure, as well as lighting along the walking trails and a sidewalk. RVI is the project architect. The City awarded construction of the project to Millis Development and Construction, LLC. There will be a separate contract for the restoration of the Wetland area (Conservation Easement) under guidance from the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers. A conceptual plan envisions Phases 2 and 3, which include an education center and more, pending future funding availability. Phase 1 of the Deer Park Nature Preserve will be completed by September 2018. The Conservation Easement area is being worked on with a scope of work and is expected to go out for bid by the end of 2018. Live & Play| 2018 23
