BF Day’s playground improvement project is proceeding quickly. They ask for your vote by June 9,  and sent this report:

Playground Equipment

Big news – we received eight proposals for playground equipment and have chosen 3 for further review and community input. Please take a moment to look at the images in the …PDF file and to respond to the survey here [The photos only appear in the PDF–you will have to contact Kristin Anderson for a copy.] This is your chance to weigh in the playground equipment. Please feel free to share the survey link with other community members and neighbors.

Last Friday, May 31, we were at Field Day at the school and received input from students, staff, families and volunteers. We had boards with playground designs and site layouts for all to review. We also took these boards to the park and playground this past weekend to receive input from other users of the park/playground.

Community input is an important criteria in the final decision. We are also required to rate the proposals based on a series of criteria identified by the School District, including safety, cost, availability, delivery time frame and others. We hope to have a final decision by mid-June.

Construction – Site Work

We are planning to go out to bid for Site Work/General Contractor sometime at the end of June. We had hoped to go out to bid sooner, but we are required to wait until we have completed the Landmark Review process (approx. third week of June). Bidding and contracting will take roughly four weeks, so we are looking at an end of July construction start date. We are anticipating about 7 weeks of site work. We still plan to do a community install for the play equipment and this will happen sometime on a weekend in September. I will of course let you know when we have a more solid date in mind.

As always, if you have any questions or comments, please let me know. Thanks again for being involved in this project.  Kristin Anderson
