It is recommended that the City Council:
4. Close the public hearing and authorize use of approximately 0.206 acres of dedicated parkland at Forest Park for the proposed public sewer main with associated infrastructure.
* Forest Park- located at 1500-2000 Colonial Pkwy., south of the Clear Fork Trinity River, west of Rogers St., intersected by University Dr., north and south of Colonial Pkwy., northeast of Winton Terrace, east of terminus of Wescott Rd, intersected by Park Hill Dr., east of Sandage Ave., north of McPherson Ave., west of McCart Ave., west of Forest Park Blvd., intersected by Park Pl., intersected by Colonial Pkwy., west at terminus of Huntington Ln., west of Rockridge Terrace, south of Kensington Ct., west of terminus of Stonebridge Place, in Council District 9.
The purpose of this Mayor and Council Communication (M&C) is to authorize the use of a portion of parkland at Forest Park for the installation of a public sewer main with associated infrastructure improvements.
The City of Fort Worth is requesting the use of Forest Park for the installation of a public sewer main with associated infrastructure. These improvements are necessary for the construction of the Fort Worth Zoo Elephant Springs Project.
No additional workspace is needed for construction because staging will occur along the Zoo utility drive areas. Once construction is complete the park will be restored to its previous condition or better.
The proposed alignment will impact approximately 3 trees totaling 25 caliper inches within the park. The City Forester is working with the Zoo on a possible mitigation plan addressing those impacts. The existing trees in proximity to the proposed construction will be protected throughout construction.
In accordance with the Texas Parks and Wildlife Code, Chapter 26, the City of Fort Worth seeks to use a portion of the parkland for the purpose of installing a sewer main with associated infrastructure improvements.
In accordance with State law, public notice of the hearing was advertised in the Fort Worth Star-Telegram on November 15, 2018, November 22, 2018 and November 29, 2018. An exhibit map was available for public review at the Park & Recreation Department administrative offices located at 4200 South Freeway, Suite 2200, Fort Worth, Texas 76115.
Forest Park is located in COUNCIL DISTRICT 9.
This M&C does not request approval of a contract with a business entity.
The Director of Finance certifies that this action will have no material effect on City Funds.
