Gene`s BMX Notes:- So, The RVs, Vehicles Junking Up The Lincoln Park Area In Wenatchee, Wa.

Out License Plates And NO Vehicle Insurance. Some Smashed Up Windshields, And It Is Also OK For
Them To Dump There Raw Sewage And Trash On The Side Of The Roadways And In Irrigation Creeks.

The Vehicles I Have Photoed For Almost A Year Now Are Of The Same Ones Going In Circles Around The
Lincoln Park Area And Trashing Up The Area. Iv Tryed To Talk To A Few Of The People Iv Seen From
Time To Time In The RVs And Vehicles But Most Are Intoxicated With Alcohol And Or Drugs. But I Guess
That Is OK Too. Hmm,

They Call Them Selfs Homeless But I Say They Are Borderline Of Being Terrorists As They Have Taken
Over The Lands Of Wenatchee. They Keep Going Circles Around The Lincoln Park Area Just Like A Gang
Of Terrorists Junking Up The Roadways And Lands In Ukraine And Gaza. The So Called Homeless People
Needs To Get Off There Asses And The Alcohol And Drugs And Go Get A Job. There Are Lots Of Places In
Wenatchee That Say Help Wanted. -- That Is A Solution As It Is Better Than Going Circles Around The
Lincoln Park Area Everyday In A Junked Up RV Or Vehicle Acting Like Abunch Of RV Terrorists.

So, What About Us, The Working Class People Of Wenatchee? Dont We Count To In Weneatchee?
People That Live Above The 1500 Block Of Methow Street And Above The 1500 Block Of South Mission
Street And On Up Via Squilchuck, Wenatchee Heights, Mission Ridge, Exta. Has To Drive By The Lincoln

Try To Doge Them As Some Are Somewhat Parked So Close To The Roadways It Makes It Vary Hard To

Of People Are Scard To Go There And Use The Park Now Due To The Trash And RVs And Vehicles Parked
Around The Park. Hay, City Of Wenatchee, Please Give Us Back Our Park And Our Roadways To Are Homes.

* City of Wenatchee Okays $160,728 For Lincoln Park Pump Track Paving.
Wenatchee, Washington USA -- 02-21-2022
Wenatchee City Council is moving forward with a payment of $160,728 to construction company,
KRCI, for the paving of the Lincoln Park dirt pump track. This cost was included in the construction
cost estimate. When you approved the construction contract…we had shown in the budget that this
change order would be coming, said David Erickson, Parks, Recreation and Cultural Services director.
Because of the way we bid the project, we have to do it as a change order. The city is opting to pave
the dirt area for long term maintenance reduction and the possibility of a multiuse amenity. The project
to revamp the park hasnt started yet.

* Wenatchee City Council Approves Lincoln Park Construction Contract.
Wenatchee, Washington USA -- 01-24-2022

* BMX Pump Park At Wenatchees Lincoln Park Pushed Back To 2022.
Wenatchee, Washington USA -- 09-24-2021
Construction for a BMX pump park in Lincoln Park will not be completed this fall and will instead be
pushed to next summer. The Wenatchee City Council on Thursday rescinded approval for an $181,400 contract
with Evergreen Mountain Bike Alliance for a pump park at Lincoln Park. Councilmember Travis Hornby, whos
worked as a project manager for the alliance, recused himself from the vote. Evergreen had committed $10,000
of its own money to the city for the project and planned to use some volunteer labor. After nearly two months
of negotiation, the group stated it would not be able to complete the contract as bid. A lot of it was volunteer
work and a lot of the volunteers were fighting fires,” Mayor Frank Kuntz told the council. They basically
said they didnt think they could make the deadline. Construction was expected to finish by October, but
Evergreen proposed moving back construction to next summer. The citys capital projects manager, Charlotte
Mitchell, said since the contract included a set schedule, it had to be rescinded once the contractor couldnt
meet the deadline. We cannot just allow the contractor to set the contract in this case, Mitchell said. Because
then we would have to allow that for every other contractor. We couldnt be seen to be showing favoritism.
The pump park work will instead be wrapped up into a larger contract for improvements to the entire park,
including a splash pad and soccer/lacrosse field. That larger contract will go out next month and Evergreen,
which was the only company to bid on the pump park contract, is expected to bid as a sub.

to that of a full-size basketball court. The addition will be the latest in a series of upgrades known as the
Lincoln Park Renovation Project, which began in 2015. Construction on future sub-projects, including a splash
pad and soccer/lacrosse field, is planned for the spring and summer of 2022. The pump park, which will be in
the southwest corner of Lincoln Park, was initially planned as a dirt park. However, the city settled on a paver
park to reduce long-term operational costs. The Evergreen Mountain Bike Alliance, which worked on East
Wenatchees pump park, was the only entity that submitted a contract bid after the city sent out solicitations
to over 200 companies. The alliance will use some volunteer labor to complete the project and is putting in
$10,000 of its own money as a grant to the city.
