The city is currently making improvements identified in the master planupdate for this park, based on community input and a comprehensive needs assessment. The plans/specifications for Aviara Community Park improvements were recommended for approval by the Parks & Recreation Commission on Sept. 19, 2016. The project was re-advertised for bids on Feb. 2, 2017. Bids were received on Mar. 21, 2017. On Sept. 12, 2017, the City Council rejected all bids received for the project.
On Feb. 13, 2018, the City Council authorized staff to advertise for bids for the Aviara and Poinsettia Community Parks. The bidding period (Mar. 8 – Apr. 24) is now complete and bids are currently under review by staff. The next step is to hire a contractor to build the improvements. The anticipated date for the City Council to award that contract is June 12, 2018.
