Study Session regarding the Capital Projects update by the Project Development Unit.

In January 2017, the County Manager's Office formed the Project Development Unit (PDU) to oversee and manage County ground-up construction projects. At the time, multiple County capital projects were underway and others were under serious consideration.
In March of 2017, the Board held a study session to consider several potential capital projects, discussed in greater detail below. The projects under consideration were recommended in County feasibility and master plan studies as efficient long-term responses to several issues facing the County. Among the identified issues were: (1) overuse of lease space; (2) reliance on aging and outdated facilities; (3) upcoming mandatory seismic compliance work; (4) public accessibility and navigation challenges; (5) parking shortages at multiple facilities; (6) rising environmental standards; and (7) staff growth and a need to update and modernize County work spaces. At the end of the study session, the PDU staff were directed to pursue the discussed capital projects.
Today, the PDU will present an update on the status of several of these projects. Projects not discussed at this session will be prioritized at the next scheduled session. The PDU plans to provide update sessions on a quarterly basis.
This session presents your Board with an opportunity to learn about and discuss current PDU projects. The session and materials presented will, at a minimum, inform the Board regarding project scope, cost, and anticipated timelines. This memorandum provides background information to be supplemented by the PDU presentation.
