City Council Awards Construction Contract for Dunphy Park

Post Date:06/29/2018 2:30 PM

Improvements to Dunphy Park took a big step forward on Tuesday, June 26 when the City Council awarded a construction contract of $2,175,000 to Integra Construction Services of Pleasanton. The firm was the low bidder for a "base project" that includes landscaping, waterfront improvements, new bocce courts, storm drain improvements, and a new parking lot.

At the June 26 City Council meeting, Public Works Director Jonathon Goldman also shared the good news that the City has been awarded a CalRecycle grant of up to $750,000 for remediation associated with a former burn dump on the site of the park.

Although the award has not officially occurred and a detailed grant agreement has not yet been received, CalRecycle grant funds are expected to offset portions of the total amount of $2,652,054 allocated for the Dunphy Park Improvement Project by the Council. In addition to the CalRecycle grant, $1,300,000 in project funding will come from the 2016 Certificates of Participation. Galilee Harbor is expected to contribute $115,000 toward the construction of the new parking lot, which will in part be located on Galilee property. To the extent that CalRecycle grant funds are available, they will replace Measure O funds appropriated for the project that are not earmarked for accessibility barrier removal. A detailed breakdown of project funding may be found in the staff report to the City Council on June 26. 

Upon completion of the base project, the remaining funds allocated for Dunphy Park improvements will be spent on new restrooms, planting and irrigation, tables, benches, and other amenities for the park. The City will be working with the Parks and Recreation Commission to develop and implement strategies for private funding, such as community donations, to fund site amenities that may not be possible within budget.

A start date for construction has not yet been set and is contingent on receipt of permits from the Joint Aquatic Resource Agencies (including the San Francisco Bay Conservation and Development Commission) and further site analysis by CalRecycle and the Marin County Environmental Health Department. The City will also continue its consultation with the Federated Indians of Graton Rancheria under Section 106 of the National Historic Preservation Act, as there are portions of the project that constitute "Areas of Potential Effect" with respect to known cultural resources.

Any questions about Dunphy Park improvements may be directed to Jonathon Goldman, Director of Public Works and City Engineer, at (415) 289-4176 or jgoldman@sausalito.gov.
