Narrative Explanation – Reallocation of Funds

2004 General Fund Capital Improvement Bond-Funded Projects

 

 

New Library Project (No Change)

This project is expected to be completed without the need for additional bond funds.

 

Public Works Facility (No Change)

This project has been completed without the need for additional bond funds.

 

Old Library Rehab ( - $1,638,349.65)

This project is contingent upon completion of the New Library project and vacation of the premises now occupied by the Leesburg Public Library.  The project will be an extensive renovation of the interior of the old library building and some interior modifications of the existing City Hall building (to modify spaces vacated by those departments moving to the old library building).  If possible, some exterior modifications will be made to update the appearance of the old library building.  The estimate prepared by PBS&J for the project is $4,500,000 (current dollars), and does not include some additional parking which the City would likely need.  Since it would not be possible to construct the project with the bond funding currently available, and the project also could not be constructed within the 3-year construction window anticipated in the bond covenants, the City is better served by eliminating the project from the 2004 bond project list, and attempting to fund it at a later date. 

 

Gymnasium ( +$2,099,388.06)

The gymnasium was originally anticipated to be constructed at the Susan Street Recreational Complex, requiring no land acquisition.  Further evaluation revealed that the site would not allow for expansion of the facility in the future, and would require relocation of some amenities.  The City acquired 11 acres of land from the School Board adjacent to Carver Middle School for $617,000.  Construction costs had also increased from the time the original estimates were generated (2004) and the time the project was awarded (2007).  The construction contract alone is $2,731,752.00, which includes an 8% owner’s contingency.  Total project costs (design, construction, and FF&E) are expected to be $3,581,741.00, necessitating additional funding. 

 

Community Center ( +$6,768.00)

Funding for the Community Center Project (a.k.a. the Civic Center Project) was reduced from $5,000,000 to $35,000 after the soils and preliminary engineering reports revealed that the total projects cost could exceed $7M due to soils remediation and foundation work.  The $35,000 was not sufficient to cover all invoices from the preliminary engineering and soils exploration work. 

 

Swimming Pool ( - $1,270,588.24)

This project was added to the project list subsequent to the elimination of the Civic Center.  The desire of the Commission was to replace the pool at Venetian Gardens with a new pool in the vicinity of the Recreation and Parks office.  An exploratory committee determined that land acquisition would likely be needed to provide adequate parking and stormwater retention, that additional land would be needed off-site to accommodate the displaced maintenance yard, and that the $1.2M in bond funds would likely be insufficient to cover construction.  Given the growing scope of this project, and the need to expend bond funds within the three-year window, the City is better served by eliminating this project and attempting to fund it at a later date.

 

 




City Hall Parking Lot  ( +$579,411.76)

The City Hall Parking Lot was added to the project list subsequent to the elimination of the Civic Center.  This project will retro-fit the existing parking lot for ADA compliance and will add a decorative plaza to the northern entrance of City Hall.  This also includes relocation of the City Hall back-up generator, required stormwater improvements, and landscaping.  The construction bid for the project came in at $1,369,657, which already exceeded the allotted $1,270,588.  The balance of the $1.85M includes design, electrical, lighting, new generator (and transfer switch), and landscaping.

 

Transportation Improvements ( +$189,382.65)

This category allows the City to expend bond funds on a variety of transportation improvements, and has served as the default category for unspent bond funds (this is the reason the category would receive the $189,382.65 increase).  To date, only $555,264 has been spent on transportation improvements, which has been for the Crystal Breeze Reverse Frontage Road (see breakdown below) and the 441 Phase II landscaping design ($143,000).  If the two “pending” parcels below are purchased, the unencumbered balance would be $1,102,507.  The balance of the funds may be used for the acquisition of right-of-way for the Magnolia Street Extension, or any transportation project that the Commission so desires.

 

Approved Purchases                                           Pending / Anticipated Purchases

Hart & Garcia                          $61,000              Automotive Realty         $111,000

Neil Fischer                           $113,478              Summerwind                    $32,670

Day Care                                $237,786              TOTAL                          $143,670

TOTAL                                 $412,264

 

Canal Street Rebuild ( +$33,987.41)

This completed project was a complete re-build of all utilities (stormwater, fiber, gas, water, electric, and wastewater) within the Canal Street right-of-way and installation of a new roadway and recreational trail.  The project was funded from a variety of sources (enterprise funds) as well as the 2004 bond funds.  The bond funds covered the general fund portion of the project, which included the road surface, trail, and sidewalks.  The additional $33,987 covers added work for the pedestrian trail (including design, signage, and striping) and decorative mast arms at Canal and Main.
