CARVER HEIGHTS/MONTCLAIR AREA

COMMUNITY REDEVELOPMENT AGENCY

 

 

AGENDA MEMORANDUM

 

 

Meeting Date:           June 13, 2011

 

From:                          Chris Edwards, Community Redevelopment Coordinator

 

Subject:                      Resolution authorizing an agreement with Jones Edmunds & Associates, Inc. for design, permitting, and construction documents for  drainage conditions  around the intersection of Beecher Street and Griffin Road.

 

 

Staff Recommendation:

Staff recommends that the Carver Heights/Montclair Area Community Redevelopment Agency (CRA) Commission approve the master agreement for professional services from Jones Edmunds & Associates, Inc.

 

Analysis:

Based on insufficient drainage system conditions identified in and around the intersection of Beecher Street and Griffin Road, a preliminary engineering assessment was conducted to determine the most practical solution.  In order to solve the existing problems, a comprehensive plan is required.  The subject agreement will allow Jones Edmunds & Associates, Inc. to produce professional design, permitting, and construction documents that are needed in order to submit a competitive proposal for the 2011 Funding Cycle of the Florida Department of Community Affairs Neighborhood Revitalization Community Development Block Grant (CDBG).

 

Per the adopted redevelopment plan, this scope of professional service will create a definitive plan that will outline the necessary infrastructure improvements within the community.  If the City of Leesburg receives the CDBG funding, construction for the improvement will begin sometime in 2012.

 

Options:

1.  Approve the Master Service Agreement from Jones Edmunds & Associates, Inc. or;

2.  Such alternative action as the Commission may deem appropriate

 

 

Fiscal Impact

The total cost to perform professional service is $35,500 (Please See Attached Master Service Agreement).  Reallocation of projects in the 2008 Wachovia Note proceeds will provide funding for this service.
