We’ve heard Mayor Hayward talk about how the state is investing $18.8 M at Bruce Beach, The budget shows that only about half of the BP funds are actually for construction.
|Five Year Operational Cost||$5,000,000|
|Post Release Fisheries Monitoring||$2,250,000|
|Planning, Engineering, Design||$682,500|
Until the bids come in, we won’t know how much of the $9.39 million is for the actual building and site preparation. Notice there is no budget for remediation. Other than removing debris on the site, there may not be any soil or water remediation needed.
The Bayview Park Community Center has been estimated to cost $335 sq. ft. – which means the 26,000 sq. ft. hatchery building could be $8.71 million. However, the Downtown YMCA was $210 sq. ft. – which would put the hatchery at $5.46 million. I suspect the Bayview Center figures may have been inflated.
