Delta council has approved a recommendation to award a contract for an architectural firm to complete a detailed design for a new Tsawwassen Lawn Bowling Club clubhouse.
The contract is for $117,892.
In the summer of 2019, the city awarded a $32,700 contract to the same architectural firm for the preliminary and schematic design.
The total design and construction costs for the clubhouse are estimated to be $2 million.
The project stems from a tri-party memorandum of understanding between the KinVillage Association, the Tsawwassen Lawn Bowling Club and the City of Delta.
The lawn bowling club currently has a clubhouse at KinVillage in an area called North Court.
KinVillage was not willing to enter into a long-term lease with the club and notified the club the North Court building might be redeveloped.
Council last year received a report on an alternate location for the lawn bowling green and clubhouse and approved in principle relocating the facility to the northeast corner of Winskill Park, also adding a parking lot and a replacement soccer field.
Staff also met with representatives of various sports organizations and, according to a report to council, the stakeholders were supportive of the plan.
The new location provides better access, increases parking and provides for a replacement soccer field where the bowling green currently exists, the report notes, adding the project will maximize the use of that entire corner of the park.
