Item Title:


Wells Boulevard/Parkway Complete Green Street Project Change Order 1



Suggested Action:


I move that the Mayor and Council authorize an expenditure not to exceed $25,000 to Johnson, Mirmiran, and Thompson (JMT) for Change Order #1 to complete the design and permitting process with Prince George’s County Department of Permitting, Inspections, and Enforcement (DPIE), under their existing contract with the City.



Summary Background:

In January 2019, the City Council authorized an expenditure for JMT to design and permit Wells Boulevard/Parkway as a complete green street project. This project design was selected by the Chesapeake Bay Trust to receive a grant of $100,000 towards the construction in fiscal year 2020 (FY20). Due to additional work required and delays in the review and permitting process with Maryland National Capital Parks and Planning Commission (MNCPPC) and DPIE, as well as delays related to the Coronavirus in 2020 and early 2021, JMT has submitted Change Order #1 to cover the estimated work required to complete the permitting process over the next several weeks.


Next Steps:

Issuance of the Purchase Order to complete the permitting process and begin construction.


Fiscal Impact:

NTE $25,000


City Administrator Comments:

Recommend Approval


Community Engagement:

A number of community meeting were held during the design and permitting process. No additional meetings are planned at this time.


Strategic Goals:

Goal 3 - Promote a Safe and Vibrant Community
