Pullman Parks & Recreation: Pioneer Center, 240 SE Dexter Phone: 509-338-3227 Register online at: PullmanParksandRec.com Fax: 509-338-3313 2 REPLACEMENT BOND REPLACEMENT BOND On November 7, 2017 the City of Pullman will ask voters for their approval to issue $2.4 million in general obligation bonds for the purpose of providing funds to fi nance improvements, repairs, and upgrades to certain city parks, and improvements to and creation of certain city paths. This is a replacement bond that would fund a new set of capital projects without increasing property tax rates. These capital projects would not exceed $2.4 million and would be paid over a 10-year timespan. With the current levy rate, the owner of a $200,000 home would continue paying approximately $33 in property taxes if approved by the voters. PARKS & PATHS PROJECTS PARKS & PATHS PROJECTS Reaney Park Improvements Restrooms & Shower Building Upgrade - Interior and exterior restrooms and changing rooms have not been updated since the early 1960s. Renovation and improvements to the shower building were identifi ed as a high priority in the City's revised ADA Transition Plan. Presently, handicap porta-pots must be leased as park restrooms do not meet ADA Standards. New layout would include toilets, sinks, and shower replacement. Pool Liner - The diving tank pool liner was installed in 1997 to mitigate water loss from concrete cracks. The liner has exceeded its useful life and is in need of replacement prior to failure. Project will require the removal of the existing liner, concrete repairs to the walls, and placement of a new liner. ADA Improvements to Sunnyside Park Construct an ADA compliant path from the Cedar St. parking lot to the upper restrooms, shelter, and playground. Also improve the ADA parking at the Cedar St. parking lot. City Playfi eld Upgrade Add six (6) new dugout structures to Wiley, Bowman, and Thatuna fi elds. Replace and upgrade existing storage and three (3) scorekeeper boxes. Replace three (3) backstops and replace fencing. Add an adult fi tness component along the pedestrian path. Pedestrian/Bike Path Development Pave the Itani Linear Path from Center St. to the Sunnyside Park Shelter and the Cedar St. parking lot. Create a path from Copper Basin Development, through the Conservation Park, to Darrow St., and on to Harrison St. Plan and develop sections of the trails to the new Kamiak Elementary School as development occurs. Replacement of Kruegel Park Shelter The original shelter was constructed by the Lions Club over 40 years ago. Roof repairs were carried out by Parks staff and Real Life Ministries volunteers several years ago to extend its safe use. A new structure similar to those at Sunnyside and Terreview Parks is being proposed. Add ADA route improvements from parking area to the shelter and the restrooms. Completion of Mary's & Emerald Pointe Parks Mary's Park - Create an all-inclusive (ADA) playground with a paved parking lot, restrooms, and shelter. The park would also include wetlands mitigation interpretive area, children's garden, and demonstration garden. The existing house and barns would be demolished. Emerald Pointe Park - Development would include playground, shelter, restrooms, and a paved parking lot. Band Shell/Portable Staging IInstead of pursuing a permanent structure at Sunnyside Park, purchase a mobile platform that can be used for multiple events (i.e. Lentil Festival, Concerts in the Park, Fourth of July, etc.) Improve Reaney Park Pool $450,000 Add ADA Improvements to Sunnyside Park $150,000 Upgrade City Playfield $300,000 Develop Paths $450,000 Renovate Kruegel Park Picnic Shelter $250,000 Complete Mary's and Emerald Point Parks $675,000 Purchase Band Shell/Portable Staging $125,000 Replacement Bond Not to exceed $2.4 million
