This is a 3.4 million dollar project repaving 15 parking lots and a portion of Canyon Lake Drive North. Renovated and upgrades are being made to badly deteriorating 50 year old parking lots. New improved features include retaining walls, planters, ADA walkways, and ramps. Parking lots and areas to be renovated include:
In 2012-13, the Canyon Lake POA entered into a $7,800,000 paving project which involved the majority of the roads within the community. That project did not include resurfacing any of the 15 parking lots within the community, Happy Camp, or Canyon Lake Drive North, east of Vacation Drive. Happy Camp was completely repaved during the Campground Renovation Project. However, the rest of these areas are badly in need of renovation, especially the Lodge and Country Club parking lots. The Lodge project will feature a new concrete ADA ramp and staircase down to the rental docks and walking pathway, and new retaining walls, planters, and additional parking spaces.
In 2016, Willdan Engineering was contracted to put together a set of bid documents for these remaining areas. They were tasked with evaluating each area for ADA compliance, and possible expansion and reconfiguration in order to create the maximum available parking spaces in each area. Further, they were asked to evaluate each area for effective drainage and to incorporate other features suggested by the community members and staff.
