SUISUN CITY — Council members in Suisun City will be asked to pass a resolution at Tuesday’s meeting to appropriate money for construction of the second phase of Lawler Ranch Park.
About $975,000 is available in the parks development fund for design and construction. Funds are also available in the Lawler Ranch maintenance assessment district for operation and maintenance, according to a staff report.
The final master plan for the park was approved in 2004. Phase one included two playground structures, a perimeter concrete pathway, turfed areas, shade trees, landscaping and a picnic area. Construction began in 2006 and was finished in 2007.
At that time, the council said the second phase would not be built until there was a sustainable, ongoing funding source to maintain it.
The second phase calls for a large expanse of turf, open natural grassland and several groves of shade trees. It is the undeveloped 7-acre parcel at the corner of Lawler Ranch Parkway and Mayfield Way.
Construction is estimated to cost $765,000. Staff anticipates the conceptual plan could be on the council agenda within four to six months.
The council will conduct a special meeting at 5:30 p.m. Tuesday and meet in closed session to discuss the city’s legal dispute with the state. Council members will also conference with labor negotiators in the closed session. The regular meeting gets underway at 7 p.m.
Both meetings are at City Hall, 701 Civic Center Blvd. The complete agenda can be found at www.suisun.com.
