The Recreation Commission has been
working with staff and consultants to complete conceptual master planning for
four of the Town’s parks as recommended by the 2012 Town Council Parks and
Recreation Master Plan (PRMP). The Town
contracted with Verde Design, Inc. to facilitate this process to obtain Public
consensus and Recreation Commission acceptance of a preferred conceptual design
for the four sites.
On June 10, 2014 the Recreation
Commission received a presentation from Verde Design Inc. and Town Staff. The Commission directed staff to capture the
Commission’s final comments so the packet could be forwarded to the Town
Council for review and consideration in a timely fashion.
Staff met with Recreation Commission
Chair and Vice Chair and stated they were incorporating the Commission comments
into the materials. Staff recommended an
effective process would be to update the materials, present them to the Recreation
Commission on August 5, 2014 to obtain any additional Commission comments, and
then present the complete package along with any Commission final comments to
Town Council on August 6, 2014.
also presented a preliminary list of short-term projects that could be
implemented in one to three years and stated that list would be a part of the
presentation. It has been emphasized to the public that the four park site
designs are conceptual only and are intended to be used to guide future
development of the four park sites. Future
development would be based on further analysis, necessary environmental action,
and applicable Town Council direction.
