<br /> <br />DATE: May 16, 2017 <br /> <br />TO: Honorable Mayor and City Council <br /> <br />FROM: Jason Kruckeberg, Assistant City Manager/Development Services Director <br /> Philip A. Wray, Deputy Director of Development Services/City Engineer <br /> <br />SUBJECT: REJECT ALL BIDS FOR THE DOWNTOWN CITY PARKING LOT AND <br />PEDESTRIAN ACCESS IMPROVEMENT PROJECT, AND DIRECT <br />STAFF TO SEPARATE OUT AND RE-BID THE PEDESTRIAN ACCESS <br />IMPROVEMENTS <br /> Recommendation: Approve <br /> <br />SUMMARY <br /> <br />In 2012, the City undertook a study of the parking supply and demand in Downtown <br />Arcadia. One of the recommendations from the study was to consider expanding and <br />reconfiguring the City-owned parking lot at the easterly terminus of Wheeler Avenue, <br />incorporating the Indiana Street right-of-way, to gain more parking spaces. In addition, <br />the City reviewed various pedestrian access issues throughout the Downtown and <br />incorporated improvements into a combined bid package. <br /> <br />Kreuzer Consulting Group (“KCG”) was retained to prepare the design for the project <br />and construction plans and specifications were completed and advertised for bids in <br />January 2017. Five (5) bids were received on February 23, 2017, with the low bid being <br />from Sully-Miller Contracting Company in the amount of $514,226.55. <br /> <br />Concurrent with the bidding process, the property owners of the properties directly west <br />and southwest of the easterly parking lot approached the City with a plan to assemble <br />their lots and explore redevelopment possibilities. Because development of these <br />properties could have an impact on the existing and proposed parking lot layout, it is <br />recommended that the City’s parking lot project be placed on hold until development <br />plans are known. However, the plans for the Pedestrian Access could proceed. It is <br />recommended that the City Council reject all bids for the Downtown City Parking Lot <br />and Pedestrian Access Improvement Project, and direct staff to separate out and rebid <br />the Pedestrian Access Improvement portion. <br /> <br /> <br /> <br />
