Poulsbo selects engineering, design firms for Fish Park project

The Fischer Bouma Partnership and Parametrix will be tapped by the city of Poulsbo as design and engineering consultants for developing trail connections at Fish Park.

During a meeting on Wednesday, Oct. 10, the Poulsbo City Council voted unanimously to approve a contract with Fischer Bouma for $97,214 in exchange for design and documentation services for improvements to the park.

Fischer Bouma is the firm responsible for Kingston’s Village Green Community Center and Winslow Green on Bainbridge Island.

According to Poulsbo Parks and Recreation director Mary McCluskey, funds received from two different state grants as well as matching funds have the project sitting right at a little over $1 million.

“We are hiring a project management team. It includes Fischer Bouma Partnership off of Bainbridge Island, and they will be the lead,” McCluskey said. “Parametrix is on this consultant agreement because we have some real engineering things to do on some of the trails, especially the one from the Bond Road parking lot to the Lord property.

“We’re very happy with the selection of Fischer Bouma and with Parametrix and we’re ready to get going.”
