8. Discussion and possible action to reject all bids for Collinsville Park Trail project and re-bid the project. -- Approved (the reject and rebid to start). All the bids received were over the estimated cost set by project architects (Landplan). The closest was ~$78K. City Manager Pam Polk indicated the project would be rebid with new wording to allow CDBG grant money (~$69k) to be used to help meet the increased costs.
From Nov. 21, 2011 City Commission:
9. Discussion and possible action for approval of Collinsville Park Trail site plan design. -- Approved, design option 1 (as recommended by the Park board). No new lighting or benches, etc are included in the existing trails grant but might be requested in a future grant application.

4. Presentation from LandPlan regarding two (2) Trail Grant Concepts. -- Barbara Tartar presented the two trail plan choices with option 1 being 1641 feet in length but not requiring a retaining wall on the south end to salvage furture parking spots. The design would allow a slightly smaller pond later. The 2nd design option (1661 feet long) allowed a slightly larger pond but impacted future parking without adding a retaining wall.
5. Discussion and possible action to approve Trail Grant design. -- Design option 1 was selected and approved for recommendation to the City Commission.
Aug. 16, 2011 Park Board:
4. Discussion and possible action to contract with LandPlan Consultants for Trails Grant services. -- Approved, the park board recommends to the commission for final consideration. LandPlan has been the park architect on previous projects and prepared the Oklahoma Recreational Trails grant application resulting in the funds for an 80/20% split ($160,000 grant + $49,523 city match) with Landplan's fees totaling $47,597 included within those amounts. [Note this is grant is only for an 8 foot wide concrete trail in the east side of the park. There is another grant application still pending for several other park improvements including new shelters and parking.

7. Discussion and possible approval of Recreation Trails grant application areas to include trail around proposed pond/wetland area. -- Approved, an 8-foot cement trail around a potential pond on the east side of the park will be presented in a grant application being prepared by LandPlan Consultants which is due before the end of Jan.2011. Will next be considered by the city commission for the city's 20% match for an 80% grant. This version of the plan drops a bridge over the creek and possible connection to another path to keep costs within original estimates.
