Action to accept Public Works recommendation on the "Ronald D.

Wilson.

Staff Summary: During the design process for the Ronald D. Wilson Park, there has been identified a potential project savings of $60,000 to $70,000 by reducing the amount of imported fill material throughout the entire project site. This reduction in imported fill material can be accomplished without significantly affecting the integrity of the recently adopted park's master plan design concepts while still providing adequate drainage across the site. This potential savings to the project's construction budget can be accomplished by revising the Phase 1 rough grading plan which was developed in-conjunction with a previous landscape grading and design theme.
