PROJECT TITLE: PW Ops- Ops Facility Master Plan
BUDGET CODE: CFP-GG-00019
JUSTIFICATION: Improves existing service
START DATE (FY): TBD
END DATE (FY): TBD
Develop a master plan for the Operations facility/yard in order to anticipate future and ongoing growth and space requirements. The ASD and the City have operated out of this facility since 1977 and both agencies have grown tremendously in that time. Time has come to think about both the long and short term future of this facility and its uses. We have grown and are still growing. Currently 50 City and 25+ School Dist. employees are working out of the facility. Departments have been added to the facility bringing more equipment to store and maintain. We are operating an impound for illegal oversize vehicles, our own Equipment is getting larger, electric heavy duty trucks are on the horizon, Electric Busses are already here and will require charging infrastructure and space. We continue to move more and more equipment into our rear yard for storage which is unsecured and also shrinking. We are fortunate to have more space on site potentially available we just need to plan on how to use it.
A mid to long term plan will better help the City navigate growth and give us a clearer picture of the space required to continue operations. We need to consider the impacts of the $0 property lease and the valuable space used by the School Dist transportation Dept. We are out of Fleet shop repair and maintenance space, we have already moved to alternative work schedules to help split our shop space better to give mechanics a space to work.
PROJECT OBJECTIVES / STATUS:
Operating impacts to be determined in the future.
