An Update regarding new drainage in the soccer field of Ervan Chew Park

As you may recall, we have been working with the city for the last several months to get drainage added to the existing soccer field. As part of the recent updates to the park beginning in 2010, a new concrete walking path now encircles the entire soccer field. On one hand, we have not had to worry about the drainage issue this Summer, as we are in such need of rain, However, we are hopeful there will be rain soon and are still working to get this fixed.
Here is the update I received from the City of Houston this morning:
“We received the bids, we now have all the necessary documents from the successful bidder so we can create a contract. We are going to Council to award the contract in mid-October, after which we can issue the Notice to Proceed for the work to begin.

The drainage project was bid with other projects to insure the best price, and I have spoken to the Project Manager responsible for this to see if we can do the drainage project at Ervan Chew first.”

I will post any further updates as I receive them.
