Robin’s Nest Park Phase 3 Restoration Grading Project

The Mountains Recreation and Conservation Authority (MRCA), a local public agency exercising joint powers, is seeking bids from qualified contractors for a habitat restoration project. The project objective is to remove and relocate construction waste and fill material from the Project Area and to restore and re-establish floodplain of the Santa Clara River at MRCA’s Robin’s Nest Park located at 8237 Soledad Canyon Road, unincorporated Acton area.  Work includes the use of driven heavy equipment to grade, excavate, sort, haul and properly dispose of waste construction debris and alluvial fill at the general prevailing rate of per diem wages as determined by the California Department of Industrial Relations.  The MRCA requests time and material bids to accomplish said work performed under field supervision of MRCA employees.

Disadvantaged Business Participation

Diversity, inclusion, equity, and relevancy are essential to MRCA’s ability to achieve protection of Southern California’s open space and recreation resources. The MRCA recognizes that there is a fundamental right of all people to equitably access Southern California’s rich environmental resources and participate in decisions that affect these resources. The historic pattern of environmental burdens borne disproportionately by disadvantaged communities can be altered through deliberate practices that increase inclusion and participation. MRCA’s purchasing power can be used to promote environmental equity, diversity, and inclusion in all forms.

In 2017, MRCA’s Governing Board adopted an Outreach and Advertising Policy for contracts and established a target participation rate for disadvantaged business enterprises of 20%.
