Manitou Springs Soda Springs Park Master Plan Update

Short Category Description

The City Manitou Springs is requesting Quotes to update its existing Soda Springs Park Master Plan as it relates specifically to Phase 2 (west end). Area conditions have changed since the Plan was originated in 2007 and thus requires updating to reflect the changes. The floods of 2013 and 2015 demonstrated that the park is part of the City’s flood control system and therefore new standards must be implemented to reflect mitigation efforts and to ensure that the park can be built in such a way as to ensure its proper role in future flooding events. Flexibility, sustainability, and resiliency will be essential in park design and functions. Ongoing and significant work in the area (some due to be completed this summer and fall) will need to be properly integrated into the Plan. The work includes renovating the Park and Canon Street Bridges, work associated with the enclosure of the Soda Springs Pavilion, and flood control and mitigation work on Canon Avenue. The City intends to use the design and cost estimates included in the deliverables to apply for a Great Outdoors Colorado grant to complete construction of this Phase of park improvements. Design work shall include: • Design of permeable and sustainable surfaces throughout park • Maintenance of existing lilacs and trees • Design of passive recreation areas • Development of the “beachfront” along Fountain Creek • Design of additional lighting sensitive to “Night Sky” standards • Development of user friendly, grass and picnic facilities meeting ADA compliance standards • Development of urban forest standards (planting large trees, edible forest-under aging maples and cottonwoods along the creek) • Creation of a bid set document complete with quantities, cost estimates, and specifications. • Meeting with a sub-committee of Parks and Recreation Advisory Board Members to guide the plan and City Staff. • Conduct one public meeting to obtain community input on the plan.
