Project History/Overview:
City Staff presented a North 1 UEP Project Update to City Council on October 13, 2021. Due to past concerns that the UEP areas are too large, City Council approved a split of the North 1 UEP into West of Del Prado and East of Del Prado per the attached plan.  The North 1 West area is currently out to bid, while the North 1 East area is currently at 70% design. 

The North 1 West and East areas include 14 new Lift Stations, 2 existing Lift Stations which will require upgrades, two Master Pump Stations, two Irrigation Storage Tanks, replacement of existing storm drain pipes, replacement of existing catch basins, and newly paved roads. Currently, the design anticipates multiple contracts for the Utilities, 1 contract for each of the two Master Pump Stations, and 1 contract for the two 5 MG Irrigation Tanks w/Booster Pump Station (Storage Tanks).

The agreement for Professional Engineering and Design Services for the North 1 Utilities Extension Project (UEP) was approved by City Council on August 10, 2020. The City currently anticipates the start of construction around early 2023.

North 1 West UEP design is 100% complete, and the bids for the first four contracts out of six were received in November. The Office of Capital Improvements presented to City Council on the November 30, 2022, Committee of the Whole (COW) the four bids received to date, along with estimated assessments.

North 1 East UEP design is 75% complete, and the City anticipates bidding on the five contracts at the end of 2023. North 1 East UEP construction will follow with an approximate 2-year construction duration and anticipated completion by the end of 2025.

The proposed project work area is approximately 4.3 square miles, with approximately 3,000 improved parcels and approximately 5,400 unimproved parcels. The project area is located in the northeast quadrant of the City of Cape Coral and is generally bounded on the west by Santa Barbara Boulevard and Andalusia Boulevard, on the south by Hermosa Canal, Arrowhead Lake, Fairmont Canal, Balmoral Canal, Lake Zurich, Zurich Canal, and Banjo Canal, in the east by Northeast 24th Avenue, Diplomat Parkway and Corbett Road and on the North by Northeast 28th Street.
