The city of Brighton is still optimistic that its new outdoor family aquatic park could open July 4, as originally planned but city manager Manuel Esquibel acknowledged that the project is about a month behind. (http://www.thebrightonblade.com/content/brighton-parks-and-rec-working-number-projects)
“We’re really being pushed to meet that timeframe,” Esquibel said. “If the weather is good to us, because a lot of that construction has to be done during the winter, we hope to meet that timeline.”
The city council was expected to approve construction contract with Pinkard Construction Co. Tuesday for about $220,000. The $5.8 million aquatic park is to be built near Bromley Lane and South 27th Avenue. An architect, Barker Rinker Seatcat, has also been named for the project.
Residents might have noticed that some dirt was moved on to the site last week. It was fill dirt from the city’s non-potable water line project on Southern Street. No official construction will likely start until next month at the earliest after the property’s rezoning is approved.
