Current Phase: Construction Document

This project will be constructed in 2 phases.

Phase 1 - Early site package to include relocation of Hermitage Avenue, Demolition of Wheaton Youth Center building, installation of utilities and retaining walls.

Contractor for Phase 1 - Highway and Safety Service, Inc. - has been given Notice to Proceed (NTP) for limited work. Once the required permits are obtained NTP for remainder of the work will be issued. Phase 1 work will be completed in summer of 2016.

Phase 2 – Existing Library demolition, new building construction and development of adjacent park.

For Phase 2, General Contractors have been short listed via Request for Expression of Interest process. Bid documents for Phase 2 are complete and will be forwarded to selected contractors for soliciting price proposals. Construction for Phase 2 is slated to begin in late summer of 2016.

 

This facility will combine a new Wheaton Library and a new Wheaton Community Recreation Center in one building. This combined facility would provide the community with a library and community recreation center that would be equivalent to comparable libraries and recreation centers with similar service needs throughout the rest of the county. The project will include the combining of redundant spaces offered by both facilities, such as lobbies, meeting rooms, and restrooms, into shared spaces. The use of shared spaces could reduce the overall building size, which allows for reuse of the existing site.

Sign of Wheaton Community Recreation Center and MNCPPCThe site that has been chosen for this facility is a combination of the existing two sites for the Wheaton Community Recreation Center and the Wheaton Library. Some of the site issues to be studied include impacts to the adjacent residential neighborhood by relocating existing roads and access, determining how storm water management can be provided, and preparing concept layouts for the building and parking on the new combined site.
