[ARCHIVED] Projects Around Poway


     It’s been a busy summer around the City of Poway! The city debuted the newly resurfaced Adventure Park, a popular playground at Community Park. 

     new-boat-dock-TSIt also installed a much-anticipated new boat dock at Lake Poway. To limit interruptions during dock construction, the new concrete dock was next to the existing wooden one. The old dock was then demolished and the new one was moved into place.

     Cafagna-Center-TSThe City Council got its first look at three alternative floor plans for the new community center. The plans were presented at the Aug. 15 City Council meeting in response to the council’s earlier direction to explore options for reducing the construction costs of the proposed community center. The alternative floor plans were based upon analysis of the existing facility and planned use of the new facility. Included in the presentation were staff’s preliminary estimates of the costs associated with each alternative. Council indicated its preference for one of the alternatives, however the next step for the City is to work with a professional construction cost estimator to refine the projected costs. This information will be brought back to the City Council for consideration at which point funding will be discussed.

PHS-solar-project-TS     In the parking lot behind the Poway Center for Performing Arts (next to Poway High School), construction is underway to build solar-paneled carports. Major construction wrapped up before the school started this week and the rest is being done in six, two-week phases to minimize the impact on school parking. The completed project is going to be a win-win all around – it will decrease energy costs at the PCPA by approximately 75 percent annually, reduce the city’s greenhouse gas emissions and provide shaded parking spots.
