Project Background

The Town maintains more than 70 facilities. Improvements to these facilities are necessary to increase efficiency, enhance programs, and to maintain operations. Additionally, improvement projects help minimize operational cost and allow staff to offer the best services possible.

Current Projects

Facility improvement projects vary in scale and type which range from resolving small maintenance issues to space renovations. These projects also provide opportunities to improve accessibility so that programs and services are available to everyone. No matter what type of scale, all are equally important to increase the life of the facility.

Below is a list of current improvement projects that includes the facility, summary of the work to be completed, construction costs, and the staff contact for the project.

Athletic Field Lighting Replacement - Ritter Park

(Cost Estimate for Design, Construction & Contingency - $440,000)

Summary: This project provides for the replacement of athletic field lighting at Ritter Park. The Town has completed an audit of all fields to determine the condition of the existing athletic field lighting. Although lighting levels increased significantly with the full field re-lamp that the Town conducted in 2008, most fields fail to meet the current recommended standard for Class III Competition Play of 50 foot-candles infield and 30 foot-candles outfield.  The lights will be replaced with LED fixtures and its estimated life cycle cost savings is $63,800 for a field with a 200-foot outfield radius and $109,000 for a field with a 300-foot outfield radius.

Construction: July 15 thru August 16 (Weather Dependent)

(Cost Estimate for Design, Construction, and Contingency - $290,000)

Summary: As programs increase at the Cary Senior Center, specific areas within the facility will be renovated to best use existing office spaces and allow room for an additional staff office. Scope of work includes the installation of a new front entry desk, additional office space, and new conference room.  All work will be phased to minimize interruption to current programs offered at the facility.
