In a press release announcing the winner, the City of Sioux Falls intends to “enter into a contract with Confluence to complete the Falls Park Master Plan.” You can see the proposals on the Falls Park Design Website. Confluence’s estimated construction cost averaged $ 23.1 million and Falls Park would have an annual operating expense of $ 1.1 million.

The proposal says that “Confluence understands the complicated public infrastructure projects that must be built
in multiple phases. Once the final program is established, we will estimate at a detailed level that the City will have confidence in. ”

“This is the first time that we have used a design contest to select a design team and we are very happy with how the process worked. The amount of ideas that were generated by the design teams will be instrumental in shaping the vision for Falls Park for many years to come, ”said Parks and Recreation Director Don Kearney in a press release.

  • Ann Nachtigal – Member of the Board of Parks and Recreation
