The project consists of rehabilitating the existing children's playground at Washington Park, a city community park. The existing playground equipment and resilient surfacing will be removed and replaced to bring the facility into compliance with the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) access requirements and Consumer Product Safety Council (CPSC) guidelines. The project also includes site drainage improvements.
The project is exempt because it consists of replacement of existing playground equipment and does not consist of the expansion of the use. Washington Park is an existing community park and the purpose of the proposed project is to bring the playground into compliance with ADA and CPSC standards and to improve site drainage.
