About the Project
Mountain Golf Cart Path Replacement – 3241LI1903
A carryforward 2020 Capital Improvement Project to reconstruct the cart paths at the Mountain Golf Course. At the March 10 Board Meeting, the Trustees awarded a contract to Lumos and Associates, Inc. to provide engineering services for Phase 1, which includes preparation of a base map and preliminary engineering drawings (50% design) for the entire Mountain Golf Course cart path system, studying impacts to the golf course, existing pavement condition, permitting and IVGID budget. Lumos completed their aerial survey in April. Draft plans for Phase 1 work have been received, reviewed by IVGID staff, and comments sent back to Lumos. Phase 1 work will be sent out for bid in July for an award at the Board of Trustees meeting in August. Construction for Phase 1 is planned to start in September 2021. Phase 1 work will impact Holes 3 through 9. PW staff will work with Golf staff to develop a plan to keep the remaining holes in operation.
The District has performed replacements at various points each year based on areas of greatest need and within the allotted budget but the last major cart path project was over 15 years ago. Due to issues of the base material, overgrowth of sod, and intrusion by tree roots and other material substantial remediation and reconstruction is needed.
A carryforward 2020 Capital Improvement Project to reconstruct the cart paths at Mountain Golf Course. Lumos and Associates, Inc. has been hired to complete a pathway evaluation, structural bridge evaluation, a geotechnical investigation, and prepare a Design Memorandum with recommendations and preliminary cost estimates.
The findings and a final design contract were presented to the Board of Trustees at the March 10, 2021 Board Meeting. If awarded, the first phase of pathway reconstruction would be scheduled to occur in September and October 2021. Complete impacts to golf operations are unknown at this time.
The final day of play on the front nine at the Mountain Course is September 15, 2021. Holes 1-9 will close for the season on September 16 due to the golf cart path replacement project.
