City Council Regular Meeting
Meeting Date: 05/24/2022  

BACKGROUND
The City of Schertz and the City of Cibolo partnered to construct a new 0.5 mile (approx.) segment of Cibolo Valley Drive between IH-35 and Old Wiederstein Road.  As part of the project the road was widened from 2 lanes to 4 lanes with added turn lanes and two medians that are currently empty with a road base.  A landscaping plan was created that includes low-water plants, drip irrigation system, and decorative rock.  The plan was reviewed by staff from both cities.  Traffic control is also included in the cost due to the need to shut down a lane on either side of the medians during installation.  The project is expected to take 12 days barring any weather delays.
GOAL
Approve Resolution 22-R-48 to authorize a contract with Cutrite Landscaping to landscape the Cibolo Valley Drive medians.
COMMUNITY BENEFIT
The medians on Cibolo Valley Drive serve as a gateway to both cities - Schertz and Cibolo - and the landscaping needs to reflect the aesthetic expected from our community.
SUMMARY OF RECOMMENDED ACTION
Approve Resolution 22-R-48.
FISCAL IMPACT
The City put out a request for bids. This was the only firm that responded, but the cost was in line with staff estimates. The contract cost for the landscaping, drip irrigation system, and traffic control is $88,172.99 and will be funded out of Roadway Impact Fees collected for Zone 1. As of April 30, 2022 Zone 1 had $649,944 available for use on applicable projects.
RECOMMENDATION
Approve Resolution 22-R-48.
