On February 17, 2021, the Parks and Recreation Advisory Committee (PRAC) reviewed the proposed revised scope of Phase 3A and recommended the project move forward with the revised Phase 3A scope.
On March 16, 2021, City Council was presented the Pre-project Review of Anthem Community Park Phase 3A.
The sanitary sewer improvements and overlot grading and erosion control for the entire phase 3 area required to be done by the Developer, are nearing completion.
The design of the overall Anthem Community Park, also an obligation of the Developer, is nearing completion.
The Anthem Pump Track, that completed in August of 2019, will remain closed until construction of Anthem Community Park Phase 3A is complete.
A construction agreement to construct Anthem Community Park Phase 3A is anticipated to be presented to Council for approval in late August, 2021.
Anthem Community Park is already developed on the west side and the remaining phases of the park development on the Broomfield owned parcel east of the Farmers Reservoir and Irrigation Company (FRICO) Community canal are referred to as Phase 3A and 3B.
The 2021 Capital Improvement Program (CIP) budget includes funding to construct a portion (3A) of the improvements to the 93.7 acre Anthem Community Park located between Sheridan Parkway and Northwest Parkway, east of Lowell Boulevard. See project location map below.
The original plan for the park on the west side of the canal was approved in 2003. The Anthem West PUD Managed Growth and Development Agreement (MGDA) identified shared responsibilities for completing the park between the developer, Newland Communities, and the City and County of Broomfield.
The City received a cash-in-lieu payment in the amount of $3,160,546 from the Developer in December 2020.
