Canyon Rim Trail Phase 3 (Design Phase)

Extension of the Canyon Rim Trail from Knecht Street to the 20th Street Extension.

The Canyon Rim Trail is a 10’ wide multi-use asphalt trail that begins near Camino Entrada and runs along Los Alamos Canyon to the west. Currently it ends at Knecht Street with an on-street connection. The project would extend this trail to the 20th Street Extension where it will meet up with an already constructed 10’ wide concrete trail connection to the Trinity Drive/20th Street intersection. This trail extension is part of the “High Priority Corridor” discussed within the 2017 Bicycle Transportation Plan approved by County Council.

Current Status: Preliminary Design and easement/parcel acquisition.

Project Budget: 1.3 Million

Tentative Project Schedule:

Easement/Parcel Acquisition Completion: In process.

Kiddie / Multi-generational Pool (Design Phase)

Project Purpose and Scope:

This is for the design portion of the Kiddie Pool project.

The Kiddie Pool Project is an addition to the existing Larry Walkup Aquatics Center that will better serve swimmers that are not lap swimming. Features include a zero-entry pool with water spray features and mini slide for toddlers, a shallow pool for swim lessons and programming, a lazy river, and a water slide with a total of 2,000 square feet of pool area. Also included in the conceptual design is three family locker rooms, pool deck, chemical storage, and mechanical rooms to support the Kiddie Pool addition.

An architecture/engineering firm has been selected through RFP for perform the design. The study presented to Council for approval and funding established bounds for this facility including location, type of pools, major features, locker rooms and support rooms. The public and stakeholders will have input into this project with the understanding that these bounds are set for the project. The Aquatics Center Advisory Sub-Committee (ACAS), the Parks and Recreation Board (PRB), and the public will have input into the project at their respective board meetings. Stakeholders which includes Aquatics Staff, Community Services, Project Management and Public Works will be involved closely with the design team with regular input into the design process. The conceptual design phase will start with readdressing the architectural program and conceptual design with the stakeholders to get more specific requirements for the facility. The typical phases of design will be performed through the completion of the construction documents. A commissioning agent will be also engaged by the County that will perform a third-party peer review of the architectural/engineering teams work.


Schematic (30%) Design Input will be presented August  28, 2019 5:30p.m. at Fuller Lodge.
