A new project to restore the Normandy Drive area that was damaged in the 2008 flood was up for discussion at Tuesday’s Iowa City City Council meeting.

The vote for first consideration for the Normandy Drive project was approved on a 7-0 vote.

The phase 1 of the project would complete the landscaping of Normandy Drive and the surrounding area, construct a parking lot for the Ashton House, install a nature playground in City Park adjacent to the area, install a connecting trail from Rocky Shore Drive to Normandy Drive, and remove soil.

The project is budgeted for $409,000.

The resolution approves the plans, specifications, form of contract, and estimate of cost for the project, establishes the amount of bid security, directs publication of notice to bidders, and sets the time and date for receipt of bids.
