Stayner improvement plan tender approved
Clearview council has approved a tender for the first phase of the Stayner Downtown Open Spaces Improvement Plan relating to the Centennial Park project, which includes trailhead and parkland development, reducing barriers and increasing accessibility as well as enhancing access to the trails, cycling and walking infrastructure for residents and visitors.
The tender submitted by Coco Paving Inc. in the amount of $1,190,531.93 came in well above the estimated cost of $800,000. Council and staff are also waiting to see if an application for $250,000 from the Canada Healthy Communities Initiatives grant program will be successful.
As a result council also approved utilizing funds from the budgeted items and capital grants reserve to offset the balance of $685,568 for the overall project of phase one of the Stayner Downtown Revitalization Project. Due to the present uncertainty of the Canada Healthy Communities Grant, any shortfall will also be covered by the Gas Tax/Capital Grants Reserve.
