A minor amendment to the agreement between the city and its consultant on the permanent Malibu skate park goes before the City Council on Monday.

In February 2020, the council approved a professional services agreement with California Skateparks for design services and construction documents for the permanent facility, to be located at the Case/Crummer property, east of the temporary park adjacent to Malibu Bluffs Park.

That pact did not include preparation of architectural design plans and engineering for other areas of the project, work that city staff initially planned for the Public Works Department.

However, because of a backlog of projects “related to the Woolsey Fire and the COVID-19 pandemic, they are unable to assist,” according to a staff report with Monday’s agenda.

Now a subconsultant, RRM Design Group, is poised to do the work for around $50,000, with funding from the designated reserve for the Case/Crummer Parcel. That reserve tops $357,000.

The scope of the work in question is beyond the design of the park itself, encompassing landscape preliminary design and construction permits, grading and drainage plan, erosion control plan, stormwater control plan and other services.

The meeting will be held via Zoom and starts at 6:30 p.m.
