With an increasing demand for parking in downtown Firebaugh, and WHCCD’s acquisition of adjacent properties, the Parking Expansion project increased on-site parking by 51 spaces, totaling 82 standard and 4 accessible spaces for North District Center students and the community. Site improvements along O Street and utility upgrades were also included in this project.
Construction was completed in August 2011. Total construction cost was $259,267.83.
New landscaping and irrigation were installed as a separate project after the Parking Expansion project was completed. Existing irrigation controls were replaced with a new operating system capable of maintaining the expanded irrigation layout. Drip irrigation and drought tolerant shrubs were installed throughout the parking lot planter areas to reduce on-site water consumption.
Installation was completed in October 2011. Total project cost was $20,210.00.
