Damage Assessment, Debris Removal and Reconstruction
Golf Course Staff anticipates receipt of final reports from Western Golf Properties on damage to the golf course. We are also coordinating our own damage assessment. We will use damage assessments to finalize a Request for Proposals (RFP) for reconstruction/design/build services at the golf course as well as FEMA and insurance purposes. Staff anticipates submitting a contract award for this work for consideration by City Council in November 2013. We are pursuing an aggressive schedule to have the course open for play before season’s end 2014. However, this could be delayed if drainage and flood control issues/mitigation in the Coal Creek flood plain require a detailed federally regulated study, review or approval prior to construction activities.
The City is also reviewing the golf course operations and management agreement with Western Golf Properties, LLC for contract compliance.
Trails The City is working on an RFP for repair and reconstruction of trails in and along Coal Creek, Davidson Mesa and Coyote Run.
Bridges Public Works Engineering staff conducted a 24-hour conceptual design sprint to determine approximate County Road Bridge dimensions and replacement cost estimate; current projection $2.1 million. Staff met with the Federal Highway Administration and Colorado Department of Transportation to review damage to the County Road Bridge, Highway 42 at Coal Creek, and Empire Road at Coal Creek. Staff should receive FHWA and CDOT feedback in a few weeks regarding next steps.
Staff is coordinating with Boulder County regarding damage to Empire Road.
Water Intake Staff coordinated with the Army Corps on permitting for the Eldorado Intake Site. City crews re-established the South Boulder Creek bank near the intake structure, demolished the damaged building over the head gate and cleaned out the stream channel. Further debris and sediment removal will continue with the goal to have the intake structure online by next week. Staff is also developing a Request for Proposals for design of the new head gate building.
Debris Removal Staff is developing a bid package for debris removal for the Coal Creek Trail, Coal Creek Golf Course and Eldorado Intake Facility.
Cost Estimates Staff currently estimates the cost of repairs citywide at $11.6 million. These estimates do not include any reimbursement that the City may receive from FEMA, other Federal Agencies or from insurance. Detailed information is listed in the attached spreadsheet.
