Kahle’s Phase II Design Contracted

by Michael Schneider

The architecture firm Eissmann-Pence, which designed the State of Nevada Supreme Court Building, will design Phase II of the Kahle Park Community Center.

The Douglas County Commission voted Thursday to enter a $160,000 contract with the firm.

There was discussion regarding a letter Gardnerville attorney Michael Rowe sent to the county raising concerns that since Douglas had used RCI Consulting for Phase I of the project, it should be considered for Phase II.

District Attorney Scott Doyle said the board was free to follow either the recommendation of the Parks and Recreation staff to hire Eissmann-Pence or to negotiate with RCI.

Community Services Director Scott Morgan said Eissmann-Pence was efficient with the first phase and the recommendation to hire the firm was to save money for the county.

“I think we just want to hire one horse and not the entire team,” Morgan said, adding Eissmann-Pence simply did its work last time and did it for the price contracted.

When Phase II is complete, Morgan said it will add a recreation center with a basketball court, two volleyball courts, a jogging track, a weight room with cardiovascular equipment, a child care center and an indoor playground to the existing park.
