New Cover For Angle Lake Park Stage

The City of SeaTac initiated a project for the installation of a cover over the Angle Lake park stage by eliciting bids in February 2008. Although city engineers estimated the job to cost around $100,000, the lowest bid came in at over $270,000 and was rejected. The Parks and Recreation Department worked to redesign the project, reducing the estimated costs to around $150K. Since that time, the city has received a total of $57,000 in grants to help fund the endeavor. The revised stage cover was advertised in the Seattle Times newspaper and the bids were opened on December 8, 2009 with the lowest bid having been submitted by Trade-Marx Sign & Display Corporation for a total of $79,359.30.

On January 12, the SeaTac City Council accepted Trade-Marx Sign & Display Corporation of Seattle as the low bid for construction of the Angle Lake Park Stage Cover. The drawing above shows the preliminary design and the next step is for Trade-Marx Sign & Display Corporation to complete the construction design documents and submit for a City Building permit. Once the permit process is complete, construction is expected to begin immediately thereafter with the goal to have the installation completed prior to the International Festival in late June of 2010.
