$20,000 (installed cost estimate) – Fencing to fence the west boundary with two-wire fence, and south, east and north boundaries with split rail fence. Excess funds could be used to fence the east or west side of north Bowers Harbor Park. Approximately $25,000 could complete all of the fencing for both the north park and the expansion.
$1500 to $2000 – Cleanup/additional signage/kiosk/trash pickup, doggie dispenser refilling and miscellaneous.
$3000 – Contingency (may need to complete an update to the wetland delineation, which wasn’t needed in 2016).
Unknown cost (pending quote) – Mowing of entrance, parking lot and loop trail that connects to north Bowers Harbor Park from spring through fall.
The meeting will include time for citizen comments.
