Interested Parties Meeting: Held 5-7pm on Thursday, September 27 at Jay Dix Station, 3775 S. Scott Boulevard.
Project Notes: The 30-acre parcel known Jay Dix Station is owned by the County of Boone, Missouri. In 2009 The City of Columbia and Boone County entered into a Park Operation and Management Agreement , whereby the City would take over the responsibility of developing and maintaining a park at Jay Dix Station for the benefit of Boone County residents, with the exception of the existing Boone County MKT Trail, which remains under the jurisdiction of the County.
The project was approved by the City Council at the November 19, 2012 Council Meeting. The plan was revised in part due to the Scott Blvd. road project, and a revised master plan was approved at the June 17, 2013 Council Meeting. The annexation of the park property was approved at the August 19, 2013 Council Meeting.
Project Status: The playground, concrete walkways, basketball court, and concrete pad for fitness stations are installed. Bike trail construction is underway. Mountain bike course fixtures and a pre-fab shelter have been ordered.
