At their regular meeting Wednesday, Westminster city officials are likely to approve a $2.55 million walking and bike trail project along Hoover Street.

The project, funded by former redevelopment agency money, is aimed at improving the existing trail to “showcase the benefits of alternative park space that can be used for recreation and transportation between City amenities and surrounding area,” according to a staff report. 

The city also will approve contracts for two recently approved projects to overhaul city parks and build a new police training center. 

The city will award a $7.4 million contract to Park West Landscape as part of a comprehensive plan to upgrade city parks. 

The $9.4 million project, funded through money from the former Redevelopment Agency, is set to break ground in September. 

Also on the council agenda are $5.76 million in various contracts toward a nearly $17 million project to construct a Public Works yard and new police training facility.

Wednesday’s council meeting begins at 7:00 p.m. To view the full council agenda, click here.
