PUBLIC INPUT – There was no public input
1. Consideration of Indian Tree Golf Course Water Intergovernmental Agreement
Mike Miles, Executive Director, stated that if the board supports the Indian Tree Golf Course IGA it will then go to City Council for their approval.
MOTION: Director Glenn moved for approval of the Intergovernmental Agreement by and between the City of Arvada and the Apex Park and Recreation District for water use at the Indian Tree Golf Course. Director Loveridge seconded. Motion passed unanimously.
2. Review Project Status
Mr. Miles stated that at the Simms Street Center, the electrical and plumbing has been approved, 40% of the drywall is up and the gym is painted. Given the delays of delivery of mechanical system we will be moving in the week of October 16. In response to questions from the board Mr. Miles stated that the gym floor is concrete and will be covered with mats. Flooring of the remainder of the building will be a type of rubber flooring except for the pottery studio which will be concrete. He added that the design and colors of paint for the exterior are being considered right now.
Mr. Miles then informed the board that at the Field House site half of the parking lot has been paved and some vertical pieces of the building frame are going up. Erection of the south building should begin next week.
3. Meyers Pool Roof Update
Mr. Miles stated that over the years Meyer’s has had several leak problems in the roof, particularly on the north side. Core samples were taken recently and it was found that the roof is saturated through to the metal structure. Replacing just the north side alone would cost roughly $1 million. It is estimated that the existing roof may last another 10 years and the pool tank life expectancy is maybe another 15-20 years. Mr. Miles stated that it doesn’t make sense to put a new roof with a life expectancy of 40 years on a pool that needs replaced in 15-20 years. This issue is looming on the horizon. Mr. Miles added that at this point the roof will continue to be patched. Board discussion ensued.
