TO: HONORABLE MAYOR AND MEMBERS OF THE CITY COUNCIL
FROM: DIRECTOR OF PUBLIC WORKS
DATE: JUNE 1, 2004
SUBJECT: ADDITIONAL GRANT FUNDING FOR THE EXPANSION OF POINT VICENTE INTERPRETIVE CENTER
STAFF COORDINATOR: LAUREN RAMEZANI, SR. ADMINISTRATIVE ANALYST
Adopt Resolution 2004- ___ authorizing the application for grant funds from the County of Los Angeles Regional Park and Open Space District for excess grant funds in the amount of $50,000 for the expansion of the Point Vicente Interpretive Center (PVIC).
In March 2004, the County Board of Supervisors notified the City of the availability of $50,000 of additional Measure A funds. These funds can be used for park, recreation and open space acquisition or capital improvement projects of the City's choice. The deadline to request and allocate these funds is June 30, 2004.
Staff recommends that the funds be utilized for the PVIC project. Bids for the construction of PVIC were opened on April 15, 2004. It appears that the actual cost of that project will exceed its current budget. Staff is currently reviewing bids and will be bringing this matter to the City Council in the near future.
Typically, the City is required to assure that at-risk youths (ARY) are employed as a condition for the Measure A funds it receives. The City adopted a Youth Employment Plan in July 1998. This additional funding will increase the City's ARY by $5,000. The new ARY total would increase from $340,502 to $345,502. To date, the City has fulfilled approximately 20% of this goal and will continue to do so with completed projects such as Lower Hesse Park development and upcoming projects such as PVIC.
If approved, the recommended action will provide the City additional Measure A funds for the expansion of the Point Vicente Interpretive Center in the amount of $50,000.
The current PVIC project budget is:
* a budget resolution will be prepared at a later date.
Staff will prepare a budget resolution to increase the project budget and will bring the item to the City Council in conjunction with the award of the construction project at a later date.
