McEuen Field Overhaul Within Budget

From City Clerk Renata McLeod's minutes of the July 2 City Council meeting re: update on McEuen Field construction:

City Engineer,Gordon Dobler, presented an aerial photo of the current construction site.  He provided the following status update:  the Front Avenue footings are complete with back wall forms in place; the retaining wall for the bridge to the 4th street promenade is in place; excavation for the harbor house is on-going; the basketball court formation has begun; the Centennial Trail has been graded; irrigation for the splash pad is currently being placed;  the elevator pit at 6th Street has been installed; and a path from the City Hall Parking lot to the Tubbs Hill entrance has been completed.  The next milestone is the paving date in November and the project is currently within the budget. Complete City Council minutes here.

DFO: The minutes go on to say that seeding and planting will take place next spring. I was under the impression that the work would be complete this fall.

Question: How will the work on McEuen Field this fall affect the municipal elections?
