Box Canyon Park in Yorba Linda was destroyed during the fires of 2008 and has been closed since. A reader contacted us asking for any update on when the park would be rebuilt.
What is the current status of the reconstruction of Box Canyon Park? The most recent information I can find is a reference to designs being underway and bidding expected in June of 2009. No work has occurred at the park, so I am trying to find out why the process has stalled. There is an advantageous construction bidding climate right now that would benefit the city and taxpayers tremendously.
I sent an email to Jan Horton from the City Council and here is her response:
We went back out to bid on the re-construction of the park. The bids will be opened October 8, usually at 10:30 am. Call to check on the time if you plan on attending. The public is welcome to watch. After that, insurance has to be checked and a contract has to be signed. If the lowest bidder is already a vendor in the City, this process will go quickly. Once verified, the re-building process begins.
