SUBJECT:                  Discussion and direction from commission regarding options for fencing at Magnolia Townhomes



Staff Recommendation

At the direction of City Commission.



The Commission has requested staff to investigate options to replace the existing construction fence surrounding the site.  The existing fence is 6’ galvanized fence that surrounds the project site on 3 sides of the property.  It attaches to a private fence that belongs to a Mr. Allen whose property borders Hwy. 468.  Mr. Mozella’s fence would not be replaced or removed.


Option 1 – Remove the construction fence and replace it with a 6’ black vinyl fence, post and hardware.  The new fence would have one entry point located on School View Street.  Cost will be $12,500.00.


Option 2 – Remove the construction fence and install 3 traffic barriers (black powder coated rounded pipes with signage) across the driveway along School View Street at a cost of $2,400.00.


Option 3 – Remove the construction fence, and remaining driveways and parking areas (approximately 70,000 sq. ft. of asphalt and road base).  Replace with clean fill and seed at a cost of $24,500.00. 



1.         Approve an option for the fencing for Magnolia Townhomes; or

2.         Other such action as the Commission may deem appropriate.


Fiscal Impact:

Pending Commissions direction.
