The City of Westwood entered into a contract with Indigo Design Inc. in March of 2013 for consulting services to develop design improvement concept plans for the City’s park space, located at the southwest corner of 50th Street and Rainbow Blvd. The park is not compliant with the American’s with Disabilities Act (ADA) requirements, and there are several deferred maintenance issues that need to be addressed.
Two different concept designs for an updated park plan and preliminary probable cost estimates were delivered. The concept designs developed in 2013 showed a possible expansion of certain park elements onto the adjacent 5050 Rainbow property. At the time these concept plans were developed, the City of Westwood did not own the adjacent property.
A revised and expanded scope of services was approved in August of 2014 to further the Park Master planning process after the City of Westwood purchased the adjacent 5050 Rainbow property.
