Parks and Rec Improvements
Last week, my office received the following recreation and parks projects underway throughout the 2nd District and beyond:
At Meadowood Regional Park, Property Management will be replacing the original artificial turf later this fall (estimated start is Oct.26). This $500,000 project should conclude in mid-December, weather permitting. That field will be out of service during construction.
At Reisterstown Elementary School, Property Management is wrapping up renovations to the multi-purpose court. Work included new basketball hoops, asphalt, top coating and lines. Also, additional site restoration work was completed at the request of Recreation and Parks. The $245,000 project just has punch list items remaining.
At Cedarmere Elementary School, Property Management is currently renovating the multi-purpose court, including new basketball hoops, asphalt surface and topcoat. The $62,000 project should finish up in October, weather permitting.
At Cedarmere Elementary and Reisterstown Elementary, ball diamonds are being groomed once a month and edged to maintain the fields, even though they are not programmed for use. This way, should that change, the fields will still be in decent shape and can be added to the weekly grooming schedule.
At Reisterstown Regional Park, Property Management recently serviced the electrical panel to adjust the timer.
At Pikesville High School, Property Management continues to work on the design, engineering and permitting for the new artificial turf field at Pikesville High School. That work should wrap up later year. At this time, we anticipate construction starting in June 2021.
At Fort Garrison Elementary, Property Management recently repaired bleachers at the school.
At Northwest Regional Park, Property Management and Recreation and Parks are replacing the original artificial turf field later this fall. The $450,000 project will give another 10 years of life expectancy. The field will be out of service during the renovation, but the second turf field we recently built will still be available.
At Northwest Regional Park, per the request of Recreation and Parks direction, Property Management will be rebuilding the baseball diamonds later this fall ($100,000). The fields will be out of service during work, but will be ready for use next spring.
