Park Plan Status as of October 8, 2019

(See FBMUD118 website under RESOURCES / DOCUMENTS / PROJECT DOCUMENTS for more information on each park project.)

The District recently finished the design phase on playground improvements at Waterside Village Park. The project will include a new large and small playground area in addition to new pavilion. The project was publicly advertised, and bids were received in April 2019. Contracts were executed and the Notice to Proceed was issued in May 2019. The current substantial completion date is September 2019. This project is a part of the District purchasing the playground property and equipment on the Village side of Water Side Estates from the HOA for around $80,000. The District recently hired park maintenance company to monitor and keep the park clean, safe and maintained. Construction is underway at Waterside Village Park and we kindly ask for your patience and cooperation. Safety is our main concern.

The District completed numerous capital projects intended to improve the quality of life within the District and promote water conservation. These include the addition of a walking/jogging trail within Barski Park (Phase 1), a children’s splash pad area, a new playground, a pavilion, and a reclaimed water irrigation system to serve District greenspace areas. The Board of Director’s respectfully requests your patience as the construction of the reclaimed water project is still ongoing and expected to be completed in October 2019. The Board of Directors of the District encourages all individuals interested in the projects to review the maps provided and attend the Board of Director’s monthly meetings held at 6:00 PM on the second Tuesday of every month at the office of the Greater Fort Bend EDC, One Fluor Daniel Drive, Sugar Land, Texas 77478.

The Splash Pad has been completed and is open for use. There is a push button on a pad to activate the equipment. It will be operational from 8:00 am to 8:00 pm daily from April through October. Splash pad rules sign was recently damaged due to inclement weather and should soon be replaced.

The Reclaimed Water Project is near completion as final testing is underway. The anticipated substantial completion date is October 2019. The District continues to upgrade and make improvements to their irrigation sprinkler system to accommodate the new water system. The District will be placing signs around the community in September and making the final irrigation connections. The District anticipates operating the new irrigation system by the end of October 2019.
