The park is adjacent to the Los. Gatos Creek Trail. It has a large open turf <br />area ofapproximately five acres. There is currently adirt/gravel pathway that runs along the <br />perimeter of this turf area that serves as primary path of travel to the picnic areas and other <br />amenities located within the park. The surface of this pathway is uneven and is not ADA <br />compliant, making many of the park's amenities difficult to access by those park users with <br />wheelchairs, walkers, strollers, or physical limitations. <br />This project will allow for the construction of a paved, asphalt pathway around the turf area. The <br />pathway, which will range in width from five to twelve feet, will provide for ADA access of <br />several group picnic areas, the bandstand area,. and the park restroom facilities. Additionally, <br />this pathway will provide for full ADA access from the park's parking lot to the Billy Jones <br />Railroad facilities and the Bill Mason Carousel. This pathway project will also provide for an <br />ADA accessible connection'to the Los Gatos Creek Trail and Vasona County Park. <br />Preliminary design has already begun for this project and is expected to be completed over the <br />summer. Bidding and award will occur during August and September. Construction is <br />scheduled to occur during. the month of November 2010. <br />CONCLUSION: <br />Staff recommends that Council adopt a resolution (Attachment 1) authorizing the transfer of <br />CDBG funds remaining from project LG-09-41, "Town of Los Gatos. ADA Compliance -Curb <br />Cuts," to project LG-10-41, "Town of Los Gatos-ADA Compliance -Oak Meadow," and related <br />budget adjustments. Once approved by Council, the transfer request would be forwarded for <br />final approval by the County. <br />ENVIRONMENTAL ASSESSMENT: <br />The recommended action is not a prof ect defined under CEQA, and no further action is required.. <br />FISCAL IMPACT: <br />The total cost of the project is estimated at $139;886. Of this, $107,643 would be funded <br />through the CDBG program, and the remaining $32,243 would be funded through TDA Article 3 <br />FY 10/11 funds. <br />All CDBG allocations are adopted as part of the Operating Budget. Once the transfer was <br />approved, budget adjustments in the appropriate operating revenue and expenditure accounts <br />would be made to reflect the corrected amounts of ADA funding. <br />
