The Board approved a resolution authorizing a contract with Wenk Associates to complete a Master Plan and construction documents for Coal Creek Park and the Linear Trail Corridor in an amount not to exceed $332,675.58.BACKGROUND: Coal Creek Park's setting has changed since it was constructed as a youth ball-field complex with informal parking areas and a bermed creek edge. New neighborhoods have developed and/or been annexed into the Town, and the activity of Erie's Historic Downtown has created a need for a neighborhood destination for nearby residents. The Historic Downtown is a central hub that draws in residents from throughout the community. Coal Creek flows along the Park's eastern edge, with easy access to the Coal Creek Trail. These adjacencies and activities position Coal Creek Park to become one of Erie's principal destinations for recreation, leisure, and festivals.The linear connection between Wells Street and Erie Community Park will also be completed as part of this project, providing a completed downtown loop connecting downtown to two of Erie's destination park venues. The bike plaza serving downtown will be further explored and developed.
