Traverse City Commission Approves Phase Two of Clinch Park Revitalization Project

Posted: Updated:

Traverse City approved a motion to begin phase two of the Clinch Park Revitalization Project at tonight's commission meeting.

The city approved moving forward with the lowest bidder, Hallmark Construction Company, and will begin phase two in the Spring.

The original bids were $150,000 over budget, so the companies revised their plans by making some modifications.

The city will work with Hallmark and the DDA to do a number of projects to enhance Clinch Park, including adding an updated, more attractive tunnel for people to use to get from the Farmer's Market to the Open Space.

The bidding process saved the city $100,000.

Michael Estes, the Mayor of Traverse City says,

     "We need to make sure that it's done in a quality fashion, but also at very competitive prices, and that's part of this process that we're reviewing tonight."

The city is anticipating completion of the Clinch Park Revitalization Project to be around June 14th.
