Brock said the projects for Monroe Community Park would be $79,180 that would provide for the expansion of the parking lot and the overall design of the park. Included in that amount will be $34,216 for bidding assistance and construction administration, $23,000 for design work, and $2,700 for a topographic survey $23,000 design and $34,216 for bidding assistance and construction administration.
The city also submitted an application and was awarded $165,000 in funding from the state’s Capital Improvement budget for a community recreation project for Monroe Crossings Park.
Brock said for several years, the Monroe Sports Association/Monroe Soccer has been requesting that a safety shelter and restroom facility be added near the back of the park where most of the soccer fields are located. This was also a recommendation that was included in the Parks System Master Plan, he said.
The design and construction administration contract for the shelter and restroom facilities will cost $18,100. Once that is completed, the city will proceed with construction of the new facilities once the funds become available.
