The Planning and Construction Department is responsible for the planning, design, and construction of the District’s facilities, trails, and greenways. Most of the district’s trails and small scale construction projects are completed in-house with district-owned equipment. Specialized construction such as larger facilities and paving are bid out.
We are committed to producing park amenities that are environmentally and fiscally responsible and to using resources efficiently. This philosophy includes a low-impact-design approach to storm water management, the reuse or recycling of materials, local sourcing when possible, the use of high efficiency systems and “green” products, and other energy conservation initiatives, as appropriate to individual projects.
Preservation Parks uses a competitive bidding process to procure the services of contractors to supervise and undertake construction of the District’s large scale construction and renovation projects.
