AND OUR OUTDOOR SPECIAL EVENTS PERMITS ARE CONTINUING TO TRICKLE IN. WE DO HAVE TO FOLLOW A PROCESS WHENEVER THOSE REQUESTS COME IN FOR MORE THAN 100 PEOPLE.

WE HAVE BEEN COMMUNICATING WITH THE COUNTY AND GETTING THE COUNTY APPROVAL AS WELL. WE ARE HAPPY TO SAY THAT THE COUNTY HAS BEEN VERY COOPERATIVE WITH OUR EVENT REQUESTS GOING IN AND BASICALLY APPROVED ALL OF THEM THAT WE NEEDED THUS FAR AND THEIR TURN-AROUND TIME IS ACTUALLY GETTING PRETTY BETTER SO WE ARE HAPPY ABOUT THAT.

AND JUST SOME GENERAL REMINDERS OF SOME DATES YOU MAY WANT TO MARK YOUR CALENDAR. OUR COMMISSION MEETINGS ARE SCHEDULED ONLINE IF DID YOU NOT KNOW AND THE NEXT MEETING MARCH 17. WE WILL HAVE AN AGENDA ITEM ON THE MEETING. IT IS FOR OUR TENNIS SERVICES CONTRACT. WE HAVE ROB NICHOLS THAT HAS OUR TENNIS PROGRAM. HIS CONTRACT IS UP THE END OF APRIL AND WE HAD NO MORE RENEWALS.

SO IT IS ONE OF THE MORE POPULAR CAMP THAT'S WE OFFER HERE IN PARKLAND. ON MARCH 1 AS WELL, WE DID GET OUR REGISTRATIONS FOR OUR ENRICHMENT CLASSES.

WE DID THAT ON THE SAME DIE KIND OF CAPITALIZE ON HAVING A LOT OF PEOPLE THROUGH THE FACILITY TO SIGN UP FOR SUMMER CAMP AND IT WAS EFFECTIVE AND INCREASED NUMBERS FOR ENROLLMENT RIGHT OFF THE BAT. OUR WINTER SPRING BOOK P PLAYBOOK. ALL OF OUR CURRENT PROGRAMS ON OUR WEB SITE -- YOU CAN FIND IT ON OUR WEB SITE.

WE START THIS PROGRAM THAT BASICALLY -- STARTED SMALLER

[00:15:03]

AND IT WAS A FEW MONTHS AGO AND GOT PEOPLE OUT TO THE PARKS AND GOT THE RESIDENTS OUT.

ANY QUESTIONS?

>> CHRISTINE GARZA: SWITCHING OVER TO A NEW -- THE OTHER PRESENTATION. WE ARE ROLLING TO SOME OF THE PARK IMPROVEMENT PROJECTS WE HAVE BEEN TALKING ABOUT OVER THE LAST COUPLE OF MEETINGS. I PUT TOGETHER A PRESENTATION AND GIVE YOU VISUALS OF THESE PROJECTS.

ONE, I AM NOT SURE YOU SAW IT THE SMALLER PROJECT THAT IS BASICALLY REPLACING THE EXISTING BOARDWALK THAT IS BETWEEN PARKSIDE DRIVE AND THE TERM BRIDGE TRAIL.

THE LITTLE WALKWAY THAT CONNECTS THE TWO IS RYAN ARCHER WALKWAY. THE LITTLE YELLOW LINE IN THE AERIAL SHOT ABOVE THAT IS OFF OF PARKSIDE DRIVE.

THE. BID CLOSED LAST WEEK, AND IT IS SCHEDULED TO BE PRESENTED FOR COMMISSION APPROVAL APRIL 21, AND THEY WILL BE ABLE TO GET THAT.

THE SAME BOARDWALK. THE SAME COMPOSITE AND COLOR AND SO FORTH. SO IT IS TIME FOR REPLACEMENT.

WE ARE WORKING ON THAT. THE TERRAMAR PARK PLAYGROUND REPLACEMENT AND REPLACEMENT AND RESURFACING.

AGAIN DEPICTED BY THE YELLOW CIRCLE IN THE YELLOW OF THE PARK THERE ON THE IMAGE. IT WAS APPROVED BY COMMISSION ON JANUARY 20. THE CONTRACTOR HAS BEEN STARTING TO WORK ON THEIR SUBMITTING AND PERMITS.

ONCE THEY GET THAT ALL DONE, GETTING NOTICE TO PROCEED.

WE ARE LOOKING TO HAVE CONSTRUCTION COMPLETED BY SUMMER. SO AT SOME POINT IN THE NEXT TWO, THREE, FOUR WEEKS WHEN THEY GET THEIR PERMITTING PUT OUT THE NOTICE. AND THAT PLAYGROUND WILL BE CLOSED FOR CONSTRUCTION PURPOSES.

SO THERE YOU GO.

SO THESE ARE THE PLANS THAT YOU CAN KIND OF SEE A VISUAL.

TAKING THE EXISTING FOOTPRINT OF THE PLAYGROUND, THAT CIRCLE IN THE MIDDLE IS THE LITTLE EXISTING TREE, SHADY AREA W WALKWAY. THERE ARE TWO PLAY AREAS.

ONE SITE FOR AGES TWO TO FIVE AND OTHER AGES TWO TO 12.

A LITTLE BIT OF A DIFFERENT COLOR.

THE MIDDLE IMAGE IS WHAT IS THE POURED IN PLACE RUBBER SURFACING. THE GREEN AND BLUE LOOK.

AND ACTUAL PLAY EQUIPMENTS ARE LISTED ON THE RIGHT.

SO STICK WITH THE BLUE AND GREEN TEAM, YOU WILL KIND OF

[00:20:01]

SEE A BRIGHTER, MORE FESTIVE PLAYGROUND OUT THERE.

GO AHEAD? YES, THOSE SHADE STRUCTURES THAT ARE ACTUALLY OUT THERE ARE NOT THAT OLD AND HAVE BEEN RECENTLY REPLACE.ED.

THAT IS NOT PART AND THE POUR IN PLACE AND THE ACTUAL PLAYGROUND IS ALL NEW. THE TERRAMAR PARK BASEBALL FIELD, SOFTBALL FIELD CONFIGURATION.

IT IS FIELD THREE AT TERRAMAR PARK.

THERE ARE OUR AERIALS SO YOU CAN SEE WHAT KIND OF FIELD WE ARE REFERRING TO. WE ARE GOING TO BE CONVERTING THAT INTO TWO BASEBALL, SOFTBALL FIELD WITH FENCING AND FIVE BATTING CAGES. THAT WENT OUT TO BID.

AND THE BIG CLOSING DATE DID GET EXTENDED FOR A WEEK AND CLOSES TOMORROW. AND IT IS GOING TO BE SCHEDULED TO BE PRESENTED FOR COMMISSION APPROVAL ON APRIL 21.

WITH CONSTRUCTION ANTICIPATED TO BE COMPLETED BY THE END OF THE YEAR. TO KIND OF GIVE YOU A LITTLE BIT MORE OF A VISUAL. THERE IS THAT FIELD FIVE -- I MEAN FIELD THREE, AND YOU CAN KIND OF SEE THE DIRECTION WE ARE GOING TO PUT THE TWO FIELDS BASING BACK -- CENTER FIELDS WILL BE BACK TO BACK TO EACH OTHER.

I KNOW THIS RENDER SOMETHING NOT VERY CLEAR, BUT I WILL E-MAIL OUT TO YOU IF YOU WOULD LIKE.

THE FIVE RECTANGLES ON THE TOP RIGHT WHICH IS CLOSEST TO THE MIDDLE OF ALL FIVE FIELDS NOW WILL BE THE FIVE NEW BATTING

STAGES THAT WILL BE INSTALLED. >> PARDON ME.

WE HAD A REQUEST THAT EVERYBODY MAKES SURE THEIR MICROPHONE IS ON. A LITTLE BUTTON ON THE BOTTOM THAT TURNS THEM ON. RIGHT, BUT NONE OF THE BOARD

MEMBERS THEY SAID -- >> HAVING A HARD TIME HEARING

US. >> THERE WE GO.

>> TEST, TEST, TEST. >> SORRY.

>> CHRISTINE GARZA: THAT'S GOOD.

THANK YOU. PINE TRAILS PARK IMPROVEMENT.

THIS IS THE -- TO HELP CORRECT THE DRAINAGE CONCERNS THAT WE HAVE ON MULTIPURPOSE FIELD SIX THROUGH NINE AND BASEBALL FIELD D. WILL BE REGRADING AND INSTALLING A SUBSURFACE DRAINAGE SYSTEM AND RELAYING THE SOD ON TOP. THIS PROJECT IS ALSO GOING TO EXTEND FIELD 8 A LITTLE BIT. IT IS FAIRLY SLIGHTLY SHORT THAN REGULATION SIZE. SO THE NORTH WALKWAY THAT YOU SEE ON THE IMAGE WILL BE KIND OF STRAIGHTENED OUT AND MOVED JUST A LITTLE BIT TO THE NORTH TO GIVE US A LITTLE BIT OF EXTRA DISTANCE TO MAKE THAT REGULATION SIZE, BUT THAT IS IN THE WORKS AS WELL TOO. IT WENT OUT TO BID.

AND IT DID CLOSE LAST WEEK ON SECOND -- ON MARCH 2.

AND IT IS SCHEDULED TO BE PRESENTED FOR COMMISSION APPROVAL APRIL 1 AND CONSTRUCTION ANTICIPATED TO BE DONE BY AUGUST, FINGERS CRO CROSSED.

AND THEN WE ALSO HAVE OUR COVERED BRIDGE PARK ON -- I KNOW WE HAVEN'T HAD A WHOLE LOT OF CONVERSATION HERE IN OUR BOARD MEETINGS, BUT I DID WANT TO MAKE SURE THAT EVERYBODY IS AWARE THIS IS A PROJECT ONG ONGOING.

WE HAD A LOT OF COMMUNITY INPUT MEETINGS AND SO FORTH WITH REGARDS TO THIS SITE. THE DEVELOPMENT OF APPROXIMATELY 2.9 ACRES TO INCLUDE A NATURE PLAY AREA, TRAILS, OPEN SPACE AND ASPHALT DRIVE WITH A. D. A. PARKING.

RECENTLY WENT OUT TO BID AND STILL OPENED AND CLOSE MARCH 23 AND IS SCHEDULED TO BE FOR COMMISSION APPROVAL APRIL 27 OR MAY 5. MAY END UP BEING MAY 5.

IF WE CAN GET IT ON THE 27TH WE WILL.

CONSTRUCTION RIGHT NOW, WE ARE ANTICIPATING THIS PROJECT TO BE ABOUT TEN MONTHS ONCE THEY FINALLY GET STARTED OR ABLE TO GET STARTED. SO WE ARE THINKING AROUND SPRING, SUMMER OF NEXT YEAR. THAT PARK -- AGAIN, I WILL KEEP YOUUPDATED ON THOSE PROJECTS. THIS IS JUST AN OVERALL RE RENDERING. I KNOW YOU CAN'T REALLY SEE THAT LEGEND, BUT IT DOES DEPICT THE DIFFERENT NUMBERS.

OBVIOUSLY YOU CAN SEE ON THE EAST SIDE IS THE DRIVEWAY AND ENTRY WAY THAT IS GOING TO HAVE REDUCED PARKING WITH A. D.

A. PARKING SPACES. THE LITTLE TAN AREA IN THE LITTLE IS THE NATURE PLAY AREA FENCED IN AND A LOT OF OPEN SPACE AND TRAILWAYS THAT CONNECT TO THE COVERED BRIDGE, AS WELL AS THE TRAILS THAT WILL TAKE YOU BACK TO SIX ACRE WOOD.

>> YOU MENTIONED THE A+ DA PARKING.

ACCESSIBLE RAMPS AND ADA USAGE THROUGHOUT THE --

>> CHRISTINE GARZA: ALL GOING TO BE ADA COMPLIANT, CORRECT.

>> IT IS STILL CONSIDERED A PASSIVE PARK?

>> STILL CONSIDERED A PASSIVE PARK.

ALL THE TRAILWAYS WILL BE HARDENED AS YOU SEE AND SO FORTH. THE NATURE PLAY AREA.

WE WILL HAVE TO TAKE A LOOK AT THAT, BUT A LOT OF THE COMPONENTS WILL BE ADA AND MEET THE MINIMUM PERCENTAGE THAT IS

REQUIRED. >> THEN IS THE INTENT TO BRING PROGRAMMING HERE? I SEE HUEVO GA LAWN.

MEDITATION GATHERING AREA. PROGRAMMING THAT THE CITY WILL

PROVIDE? >> CHRISTINE GARZA: THE CITY IS NOT GOING TO RUNO ANY PROGRAMS OUT OF THE PARK BUT

[00:25:03]

JUST OPEN TO THE PUBLIC FOR ACTIVITY.

IT IS GOING TO BE OPEN 8 A.M. TO SUNSET.

THE PARKING LOT AREA WILL HAVE A GATE.

SO ONCE WE CLOSE THE PARK WE WILL MAKE SURE THAT IS CLOSED AND LOCKED UP. THERE ARE NO LIGHTS AND NO REST ROOM. LANDSCAPING LIGHTNING AND THINGS OF THAT NATURE AND NO SPORTS LIGHTING.

>> RESTRICTIONS WITH PLAYING OR HAVING ACTIVITIES LIKE WITH

BALLS OR ANYTHING? >> NO, JUST LIKE IF YOU WENT TO ANY ONE OF OUR PASSIVE PARKS AND UTILIZED THE PLAY SPACE AREA. YOU WON'T BE ABLE TO TRAIN, BUT MEANT FOR FAMILIES TO GO OUT AND THROW A FRISBEE AND KICK A BALL AROUND. NO REST ROOMS.

NO. >> WAS THAT A COST FACTOR OR

JUST -- >> CHRISTINE GARZA: IT IS MORE SO BECAUSE IT IS BEING DEEMED AS A PASSIVE PARK.

ALL OF OUR PASSIVE PARKS DO NOT HAVE REST ROOMS. IT IS MEANT FOR OUR COMMUNITY AND OUR RESIDENTS TO GO TO AND

ENJOY AND SO FORTH. >> UNTIL YOUR CHILD HAS TO GO

TO THE BATHROOM. >> AND NOT BRING WATER.

ALL THE PROJECTS. IF YOU HAVE ANY QUESTIONS OR

ANY COMMENTS OR ANYTHING? >> WHAT WAS THE COST ON THE

PLAYGROUND REPLACEMENT? >> CHRISTINE GARZA: IT WAS 5 508,550.

SO THEY JUST RECEIVED ALL THE BIDS.

THEY ARE STILL FINALIZING OPENING EVERYTHING UP.

BUT I CAN TELL YOU THAT THE BUDGET IS $1 MILLION.

FOR THAT PROJECT. $1 MILLION BUDGETED FOR THE EVENT -- FOR THAT PROJECT. YES.

YOU SAID THE GOALPOST? >> SO I HAVE A QUESTION, TOO, AS FAR AS -- I KNOW WITH THE ADA TRANSITION PLAN THAT WAS PUT IN PLACE WITH PARKLAND, IF WE CAN STAY UP TO DATE ON THAT FROM OUR -- YOU KNOW, DECISIONS MOVING FORWARD.

AND I KNOW WITH TERRAMAR NOW. SO THAT PLAN IS ALREADY IN PLACE, CORRECT? THAT IS THE ONE WE JUST

DISCUSSED? >> CHRISTINE GARZA: THE

PLAYGROUND? >> YES.

>> CHRISTINE GARZA: YES. >> BASICALLY HARD TO SEE OFF THE RENDERING WHAT EXACTLY THEY DID, BUT MOVING FORWARD IF WE CAN GET INVOLVED MORE IN SEEING AND SEEING THAT ADA REQUIREMENT AND EVEN GOING A STEP BEYOND LIKE THE GENERAL, YOU KNOW, MINIMUMS. I KNOW ACROSS THE COUNTRY A LOT OF PARKS THAT ARE REALLY STARTING TO CHANGE NOW TO BE MORE INCLUSIVE, NOT JUST FINDING A RAMP OR ADDING PARKING SPACES BECAUSE THERE IS STILL A LOT OF PARKS WHERE I CAN PARK AND STILL CAN'T MAKE IT TO THE PLAYGROUND AND MOST OF THE PLAYGROUND ACTIVITIES ARE STILL EXTREMELY LIMITED.

THE CARETAKER CAN'T REALLY GET TOO INVOLVED.

OBVIOUSLY A LITTLE LATE FOR TERRAMAR.

BUT IF THERE IS A WAY MOVING FORWARD ANY PLANS WITH THE C CITY, I WOULD LIKE TO RAISE IT TO THE BOARD THAT WE WILL HAVE REALLY JUST -- LIKE A FORWARD THINKING ON ADA COMPLIANCE NOT JUST FROM THE ADA STANDPOINT WITH CHILDREN AND IN WHEELCHAIRS. IT COULD BE DIFFERENT TYPES OF MENTAL HEALTH. I MEAN THE CITY OF PARKLAND ITSELF IS, AGAIN, BEAUTIFUL WITH TREES AND THIS NATURE AREA IS A GREAT IDEA, BUT LIMITING BATHROOM USAGE.

YOU WILL NOT GET THAT MANY PEOPLE GOING THERE TO SPEND A DAY. I THINK INCORPORATING A LOT OF MENTAL HELP, A LOT OF IMMOBILITY OR THINGS THAT REALLY INCLUDE EVERYBODY INTO THE PARKS AND RECREATION WOULD BE IN OUR BEST INTEREST TO REALLY MAKE AN EXTREME POINT SO WE ARE ONE OF THE LEADING CITIES IN FLORIDA AND IF NOT THE COUNTRY TO SAY IT'S A BEAUTIFUL PLACE TO BE AND EXTREMELY INCLUSIVE FOR EVERYBODY TO ENJOY.

>> CHRISTINE GARZA: ABSOLUTELY.

I KNOW THAT -- WE SPOKE BRI BRIEFLY, BUT AT THE LAST COMMISSION MEETING, OUR CITY MANAGER DID GIVE A CITY-WIDE ADA TRANSITION PLAN UPDATE.

SO THAT IS ACROSS THE BOARD FOR EVERYTHING WITHIN THE CITY, NOT JUST SPECIFICS FOR PARKS AND REC.

BUT A LOT OF OUR PARKS AND FACILITIES ARE PART OF THAT PLAN AS WELL TOO. THAT WOULD BE ONE OF OUR STRATEGIC PLANNING TOPICS OF CONVERSATION AS WELL TOO AND WE

[00:30:01]

WILL CONTINUE TO KEEP THAT IN MIND AS WE CONTINUE TO HAVE CONVERSATIONS AND MOVE FORWARD WITH IT, ABSOLUTELY.

>> PERFECT. WE HAVE AN OPPORTUNITY ESPECIALLY WITH A LOT OF THE NEWER DEVELOPMENTS KNOW IT IS DOWN THE ROAD AND 36-ACRE PARK WOULD BE PHENOMENAL TO REALLY HARNESS, LIKE, THAT IDEA OF AN INCLUSIVE PARK WITH THE NATURE, WITH THE ACCESSIBILITY FOR EVERYONE.

REALLY TAKING IT TO A LEVEL. TO START THAT PROCESS NOW AND KEEP THE CONVERSATION GOING, WE WILL BE AHEAD OF IT.

>> CHRISTINE GARZA: VERY GOOD. >> THANK YOU.

-ACRE PARK? THAT WILL BE ANOTHER STRATEGIC PLANNING CONVERSATION WITH REGARD TO FUNDING, IDEAS AND SO FORTH. IF YOU LOOK IN THE PARKS AND RECREATION MASTER PLAN THAT YOU ALL HAVE BEEN A PART OF AND SO FORTH, IT GIVES SOME OF THEIR RECOMMENDATIONS OF THINGS THAT WILL BE BUILT. ONCE WE GET MORE DIRECTION THROUGH STRATEGIC PLANNING THE NEXT COUPLE OF MEETINGS WE WILL BE ABLE TO BRING SOMETHING FORWARD AND FROM SOMETHING IN CONVERSATION WITH REGARDS TO IT.

A GAME PLAN. RIGHT NOW I DON'T HAVE A LOT OF ANSWERS FOR YOU. SORRY.

>> I HAVE SOME OVERALL COMMENTS ABOUT TERRAMAR AND JUST SOME OF THE UPKEEP OF IT. I SPEND A LOT OF TIME ON PARK TRAILS, AND MORE RECENTLY, WE HAVE BEEN AT TERRAMAR WITH LITTLE LEAGUE STARTING. AND OBVIOUSLY NOW SITTING ON THIS BOARD, I LOOK AT THINGS SITTING -- LOOKING AT A VERY DIFFERENT LENS THAN I DID BEFORE.

AND I FEEL LIKE ONE PARK MAY BE MAINTAINED A LITTLE BETTER THAN THE OTHER OR AGE SHOWING. BUT WHEN I REALLY LOOKED AT TERRAMAR, I MEAN, I FEEL LIKE IT NEEDS A LITTLE TLC.

I ACTUALLY WALKED THE GROUNDS OF IT A COUPLE OF WEEKS AGO WHEN I WAS OUT THERE. AGED MEAN, THERE WERE JUST THINGS THAT STOOD OUT FOR ME. MAYBE, AGAIN, BECAUSE I WAS LOOKING FOR THEM. BUT AS FAR AS THE ACTUAL BASEBALL FIELDS GO. THEY -- THEY ARE IN GREAT CONDITION. BUT, AGAIN, THIS MAY SEEM A LIT NITPICKY ON THE OUTSKIRTS OF THAT WHERE YOU HAVE THE LANDSCAPING. THE MULCH IS PROBABLY IN NEED -- I AM SURE YOU ARE ON SOME SORT OF MULCHING SCHEDULE NOT JUST -- NOT JUST AESTHETICS BUT FROM A SAFETY PERSPECTIVE.

I KNOW THE MULCH SOMETIMES IS TO COVER THE BIG ROOTS COMING OUT. SO AS A MOM, I SEE THAT AS A HUGE TRIPPING AND SAFETY HA HAZARD.

ALL PURPOSE FIELDS. AND I KNOW SCOTT, YOU SPOKE OF THIS, GIVING THOSE FIELD REST TIMES AND ADDRESSING THAT.

AGAIN BLATANTLY, I DIDN'T HAVE TO WALK -- I COULD LOOK OUT AT IT AND SEE THE BIGGER DIVOTS AND HOLES.

AGAIN. SAFETY.

THE PAVILIONS. TO ME IT IS LIKE A LITTLE FACELIFT, PRESSURE WASHING. A NEW COAT OF PAINT.

WHEN YOU LOOK IN THE ACTUAL -- THEY HAVE THE METAL AWNING T TOPS. COULD YOU SEE THEM RUSTED OUT IN ONE OF THE ONES I WAS IN. THE ONE THAT YOU USED TO BARBECUE. ON THE INSIDE THERE WAS AN ELECTRICAL FIXTURE. NOT LIKE LIVE WIRES BUT HANGING -- COME OFF THE CEILING AND KIND OF HANGING.

THESE ARE THINGS THAT -- PARKLAND IS SO BEAUTIFUL.

AND WE REALLY DO. YOU DRIVE IN -- YOU ARE IN AWE OF THE BEAUTY BUT THE LITTLE THINGS LIKE THAT THAT PEOPLE COME TO EXPECT. THEY HAVE A LEVEL OF EXPECTATION AND PEOPLE ARE MISSING THE POINT AND MARK ON ALL OF THAT. I ALSO NOTICE THE MAINTENANCE FIELD SHED IN THE BACK. ALL THE NETTING ON THAT IS -- I DON'T KNOW IT IS MOLD -- CLEARLY OLD.

IT IS FALLING OFF THE FENCE. THE BLEACHERS.

THEY NEED -- AGAIN, JUST A GOOD PRESSURE WASH.

YOU CAN SEE THE MOLD ON THE BLEACHER.

THE MOLD ON THE PAVEMENT. I DON'T SEE THESE AS SUPER COSTLY. JUST MORE THINGS THAT WE CAN DO IN-HOUSE WITH THE RESOURCES WE HAVE.

BASKETBALL COURTS. AND THESE ARE THE FURTHER ONES WE WERE ON FOR PRACTICE. A CRACK DOWN THE MIDDLE OF ONE OF THEM. JUST THE BACK BOARDS ARE -- AGAIN, I DON'T KNOW IF IT IS SUN EXPOSURE OR MILDEW, BUT THEY ARE WHITISH. THE SIGNAGE -- AGAIN I AM NITPICKING. THE SIGNAGE WAS HAPHAZARDLY PUT UP. SIGNAGE THAT WAS PUT IN A CLEAR COVER AND ZIP TIED ON. AGAIN, LITTLE THINGS.

I FEEL LIKE WE SET THE BAR SO HIGH FOR OUR PARKS AND YOU SEE SUFF LIKE THAT, YOU ARE LIKE WHAT IS GOING ON.

THE SOFTBALL FIELDS AND BRIAN, YOU CAN PROBABLY SPEAK TO THIS.

[00:35:04]

I LOOK AT IT AND IT IS AGED BUT THE NET SOMETHING RIPPED WHERE THE NETTING HITS THE FENCE A SAFETY ISSUE MY MIND.

YEAH. I MEAN, AGAIN, SO -- AESTHETICS. SOME OF IT IS SAFETY.

I NO MAGIC MONEY TREE THAT WE CAN SHAKE, BUT ESPECIALLY LIKE THE PRESSURE WASHING. TO ME THAT -- MAYBE IT IS.

SHOULD BE A REGULAR MAINTENANCE PLAN.

LIKE A ROUTINE, YOU KNOW, EVERY SIX MONTHS OR ONCE A YEAR TO BE DONE. AND THOSE ARE SINGS -- I SEE IT THROUGH A DIFFERENT LENS NOW. THESE ARE SOME THINGS THAT I

WANTED TO SHARE. >> CHRISTINE GARZA: I APPRECIATE IT. LIKE SCOTT DID MENTIONED, WE ARE WORKING CLOSELY WITH THEM TO GET SOME OF THOSE MAINTENANCE SCHEDULES AND THINGS.

GREAT TO HAVE YOU OUT AT THE PARKS AND AT THE EVENTS AND THE PROGRAM TO KIND OF GAVE FEEDBACK.

I KNOW EVEN WHEN YOU ARE OUT THERE YOU -- AS AN ADVISORY BOARD MEMBER BEING ASKED A LOT OF DIFFERENT QUESTIONS AS WELL TOO. SO OPENING THE DOORS OF COMMUNICATION, LIKELY YO AND I TALKED ABOUT.

AND MAKING SURE THAT WHATEVER INFORMATION YOU CAN SHARE WITH ME. I GET PHONE CALLS WITH RESIDENTS. DON'T GET ME WRONG.

I AM BUSY EVERY DAY WITH THEM. THE KNOW WE KNOW AND IMPROVE

THE BETTER TO WORK TOGETHER. >> I WOULD LOVE TO ECHO HER COMMENTS. I MEAN, SHE IS RIGHT ON THE MONEY. AND PROBABLY THE REST ROOMS. REST ROOMS ARE SOMETHING ALSO TO TAKE A LOOK AT.

>> THAT WAS ALSO MY LAST -- >> YOU WALK IN THERE -- IT NEEDS SOME WORK.

>> CORRECT. RIGHT.

AND I AM AT BOTH OF THOSE PARKS OFTEN.

IT IS JUST -- THERE IS ONE OF THE OTHER THINGS THAT I THINK IS PROBABLY EVEN A SAFETY ISSUE, AND I DON'T KNOW IF SOMETHING THAT WE CAN DO, YOU KNOW, IN BETWEEN OUR SOFTBALL GAMES OR BASEBALL GAMES TO HAVE SOMEBODY GO OUT THERE AND DRAG THE FIELD, WET IT, DO SOME OF THAT STUFF, BECAUSE FOR OUR DIVISION, WHICH I WAS TALKING ABOUT EARLIER, THESE KIDS ARE A LOT BETTER AND HITTING THE BALL HARD, AND THE GIRLS.

OFF REAL BIG MIXTURE OF GIRLS ON THESE TEAMS. A GIRLS THAT ARE REALLY, REALLY GOOD AND GIRLS WHO ARE BR BRAND-NEW AND NEVER PLAYED BEFORE.

A HOTSHOT GETS HITS A THEM IN THESE FIELDS LIKE PLAYING ON PINE TREE ESTATES ROAD. THAT BALL IS COMING AT THEM,

AND IT JUST SHOOTS UP ON THEM. >> AND WHEN THEY SLIDE TOO.

SLIDING. IT IS LIKE CONCRETE.

>> SLIDE INTO HOME OR SLIDE INTO THESE BAGS AND ARE GETTING STUCK INTO THE GROUND. SO WE CAN SOFTEN THOSE FIELDS UP IN BETWEEN GAME, I WOULD BE GREAT.

>> I DID HAVE A DISCUSSION, ROB, WITH SOME OF THE PUBLIC WORKS GUYS AND BRUNO OUT THERE BEFORE THE SEASON STARTED AND THEY SAID AN ISSUE WITH THE IRRIGATION SYSTEM ON IT.

THEY WERE LOOKING INTO IT. BUT CLEAR THAT THE SPRINKLERS SYSTEM IS NOT WORKING ON THE FIELD.

IF THEY DON'T -- IF IT DOESN'T RAIN, YOU ARE PLAYING ON A PARKING LOT. 10-YEAR-OLD GIRLS TAKING HOT SHOTS THAT ARE BOUNCING WHO KNOWS WHERE -- THEY HAVE MASKS ON, BUT GETTING THE IRRIGATION SYSTEM FIXED TO THAN FIELD.

I AM NOT SURE WHAT THE UPDATE IS ON THAT.

>> CAN WE GET WATER OUT THERE THAT WE CAN000 UP TO AND THEY CAN GO OUT THERE WITH A HOSE A AND WORK IT.

A LOT -- A LOT OF OTHER PARKS DO THAT.

AND GO, MAN, GO, SO SOMETHING TO THINK ABOUT.

>> CHRISTINE GARZA: YOU ARE TALKING OF LINING AND DRAGGING BETWEEN GAMES -- ARE YOU TALKING BETWEEN EVERY SINGLE GAME BECAUSE JUST SO YOU KNOW, OUR SPORTS POLICY -- IT HAS GOT

TO BE -- >> I DON'T THINK IT IS THE LINING AND DRAGGING. BECAUSE THEY ARE LINING AND DRAGGING FINE. THE PROBLEM IS THEY ARE DRAGGING THE ASPHALT AFTER THREE DAYS OF NO RAIN.

>> NEEDS TO BE LIKE FRESH CLAY OR SOMETHING.

>> THEY JUST DID REDO IT. BUT THE PROBLEM IS WITHOUT THE SPRINKLERS WORKING. ALL THIS MONEY WE SPENT REGRADING THAT FIELD WHICH THEY DID A WONDERFUL DRAINS 1,000% BETTER. IT IS GOING DOWN THE HILL BECAUSE NOT BEING MAINTAINED CORRECTLY AND NOT THAT THEY ARE OUT THERE DRAGGING IT AND GETTING THE PROPER MOISTURE.

>> CHRISTINE GARZA: I WILL GET BACK TO YOU WITH THE IRRI

IRRIGATION. >> WE SEE THE SAME THING WITH B WHEN OUT THERE THE LAST WEEKEND -- WEEKEND BEFORE.

>> CHRISTINE GARZA: AT B, YOU SAID.

>> PINE TRAILS. 6:30 WHEN I WAS -- 3:30 WHEN I WAS OUT THERE FOR CHALLENGER. SO DRY.

LIKE IN BETWEEN FIRST AND SECOND.

[00:40:02]

FIRST BASE. DUGOUT AREA.

THOSE FIELDS ARE ONE EXTREME OR THE HER.

RAINS AND IT FLOODS AND CAN'T PLAY.

IT WAS REALLY DRY. I AM USUALLY SITTING ON THE OUTSIDE OF THE FIELD AND STANDING BETWEEN FIRST AND SECOND LOOKING WITH A CHILD GOING OH, MY GOODNESS, IT IS

REALLY HARD AND DRY. >> LIKE I SAID WE WILL CONTINUE TO WORK CLOSELY. A LOT OF THESE ARE PUBLIC WORKS ON DUTIES FOR THE PARK MAINTENANCE.

I KNOW THEY HAVE DONE A WHOLE LOT.

WE HAVE DONE A LOT OF UPDATES TO FIELDS AND THEY ARE WORKING HARD. THEY ARE ALSO WOMAN IMMUNE TO ARE SHORT STAFFED AND DIFFERENT THINGS OF THAT NATURE AND WE ARE TRYING TO WORK WITH THOSE AND WE WILL CONTINUE TO

COMMUNICATE WITH THEM. >> THANK YOU.

>> ONE LAST THING JUST TO GO TO BASKETBALL AGAIN.

I KNOW IT WAS MENTIONED, BUT SOME OF THE FAMILIES HAVE BROUGHT TO MY ATTENTION AND WE TALKED IS THE SCOREBOARD.

JUST TO GET THAT COMMENT OUT THERE NOW AND GET IT ON RECORD, BUT THAT HAS BEEN BROUGHT TO MY ATTENTION THEY WOULD LOVE TO

HAVE THAT WORKING. >> WONDERING IF IT WORKED.

>> CHRISTINE GARZA: I DON'T KNOW IF ANYBODY ELSE HAD COMMENTS OF THE SCOREBOARDS AT PINE TRAILS PARK.

OF THE TWO BOARDS ARE OLDER THAN THE OTHER TWO.

SO THE TWO OLDER BOARDS -- THE SCOREBOARDS.

THE CITY HAS A REPLACEMENT PROGRAM.

SO ESPECIALLY FOR CAPITAL PURCHASES, WHEN WE TALK ABOUT BUDGETS AND BIGGER TICKET IT ITEMS. THOSE THINGS A LITTLE HARDER FOR US TO DO BECAUSE THEY NEED TO BE THOUGHT AND BUDGETED OUT. REPLACEMENT PROGRAM.

WE PUT TOGETHER A SCHEDULE THAT TAKES THE EXPECTED -- THE LIFE EXPECTANCY OF THE EQUIPMENT AND PUTS INTO A ROTATION WHEN IT IS SCHEDULED TO BE REPLACED THE BASKETBALL SCOREBOARD IS FOR THE FOLLOWING BUDGET YEAR. THE LEAGUE HAVE WORKED OUT TO US AND I KNOW THEY HAVE TALKED ABOUT THE POSSIBILITY OF COMMITTING SOME FUNDS TO HELP PAY FOR SOME OF THE BOARDS AND SO FORTH, SO WE ARE WORKING WITH THEM IN TRYING -- THAT HELPS US OUT BECAUSE NOW WE CAN POSSIBLY GET INTO NEXT YEAR'S BUDGET. SO WE ARE HAVING THOSE CONVERSATIONS. AND AS WE GO THROUGH THE BUDGET CYCLE, ON OUR LIST TO HAVE THE CONVERSATION AND HOPEFULLY WILL

BE ABLE TO GET THROUGH. >> CHRISTINE, CAN YOU INVESTIGATE ON THE BASKETBALL COURTS BECAUSE I HEAR THE SAME THINGS. THE TWO OLDER SCOREBOARDS ARE NOT A PROBLEM AT NIGHT. THE PROBLEM IS THE TYPE OF SCOREBOARD, THE DAY WITH THE SUN SHINING ON THEM.

FOR TWO YEARS, THE POSSIBILITY OF EVEN LOOKING TO FABRICATE SOME METAL SHELF -- LIKE A SHADE.

LIKE A HAT BILL, BECAUSE THE POBLEM WHEN YOU ARE OUT THERE DURING THE DAY AND YOU CAN'T SEE THEM BECAUSE OF THE LIGHT.

THE SUNLIGHT ON THEM. A ONE FOOT COMING FROM THE -- THE ALUMINIUM WHATEVER IT IS SHADE, I THINK YOU WILL BE ABLE

TO SEE THEM A LOT BETTER. >> DEPENDING ON THE TIME OF DAY. DID HEAR THEM AS WELL.

AND THE CHANGE OF THE LIGHT. >> I AM NOT EVEN TALKING ABOUT THAT. I AM TALKING ABOUT LITERALLY LIKE A LITTLE VISOR. A CAP VISOR SO THE SUN IS NOT SHINING ON LIGHT BULB. WE WILL BE ABLE TO SEE IT

BETTER. >> CHRISTINE GARZA: WE WILL

LOOK AT IT. >> THE ONE ON 3 AND 4.

BECAUSE I WORKED IT LAST NIGHT. >> CHRISTINE GARZA: THAT IS ONE OF THE NEWER ONES. A FEW MORE YEARS BEFORE WE WORRY ABOUT THE REPLACEMENT. THANK YOU, LOU, FOR BRINGING THAT UP.

OKAY. THE NEXT ITEM SCOTT IS GOING TO GIVE US AN UPDATE ON THE GRANT OPPORTUNITY THAT IS COMING UP

FOR CDB, OUT SENIOR PROGRAM. >> JUST AN OVERVIEW OF OUR CDB, WHICH IS OUR COMMUNITY DEVELOPMENT BLOCK GRANT.

EVERY YEAR THE CITY GOES FOR THE GRANT.

IT IS FROM THE COUNTY. WE ARE CURRENTLY GOING TO BE APPLYING FOR THE 47TH YEAR. CURRENTLY IN THE 46TH YEAR.

THIS GRANT IS USED TO SUBSIDIZE THE COST OF THE SENIOR PROGRAM.

THE FITNESS CLASSES. THE TRIPS.

CURRENTLY NOT RUNNING TRIPS BUT HOPE TO IN THE NEAR FUTURE.

THE FOUR TO SIX YEAR THAT WE DOESN'T RECENTLY HAVE -- AND DO REIMBURSEMENTS 39,032. LOOKING TO GET THAT THE 47TH YEAR. THE CITY HAS DONE THAT AND IN THE 47TH YEAR, THE CITY HAS BEEN DOING THIS FOR THE PAST 15 CONSECUTIVE YEARS. SO WE ARE LOOKING TO DO THAT AGAIN. PART OF THE ENVIRONMENTS FOR THT IS TO HOLD A PUBLIC MEETING IN REGARDS TO THE 47TH YEAR. WHICH HOWARD IS GOING TO CALL TO ORDER HERE RIGHT NOW.

>> THANK YOU FOR THAT PROMPT. >> AT THIS TIME, I WOULD LIKE

TO OPEN FOR PUBLIC COMMENT. >> I THINK IT IS A FANTASTIC

IDEA. >> AT THAT POINT, I WILL CLOSE

[00:45:01]

THE PUBLIC COMMENT. >> SO PART OF THAT PROCESS IS DO A PUBLIC MEETING -- OPEN TO THE PUBLIC.

AS YOU CAN TELL, A LOT OF PEOPLE SHOW UP.

IT HAS BEEN ADVERTISED. >> GET SOMEBODY A MOTION TO

SUPPORT US APPLYING FOR IT. >> I'LL MAKE A MOTION TO SUPPORT THE APPLICATION FOR THE GRANT FOR SENIOR PROGRAMMING.

>> I WILL SECOND THAT. >> HOWARD WYNER: ALL THOSE IN FAVOR. MOTION PASSES UNANIMOUSLY.

[9. Old Business]

>> OLD BUSINESS? >> I DID HAVE A QUESTION ON THE MASTER PLAN. WOULD THIS BE A GOOD TIME FOR THAT? I READ THROUGH -- READ THROUGH THE MASTER PLAN. IT WAS VERY WELL-DONE.

BUT I HAVE A QUESTION NO REAL CONTRIBUTION OF LAND IN THE FUTURE OVER THE HORIZON IN THE MASTER PLAN AND I WONDER IF THAT IS A STRATEGIC DECISION OR WAS IT BASED ON COMMISSION DIRECTION. ON THE NEW GUY.

>> CHRISTINE GARZA: LAST YEAR STRATEGIC PLANNING WAS CHANGE THE BECAUSE OF COVID AND IT HIT AND WE WERE UNABLE TO BRING TOGETHER LIKE IN PREVIOUS YEARS WITH STRATEGIC PLANNING.

THE YEAR BEFORE THAT, THE COMMISSION GAVE US A DIRECTIVE TO ALWAYS BE LOOKING FOR VACANT PROPERTY AND SO FORTH TO PURCHASE GOING FORWARD. HENCE 36 ACRES.

WASN'T 36, BUT 22 AND 24 TO COMBINE TO THE 12-ACRE PARK SITE. WE WENT AHEAD AND WENT AHEAD TO PURCHASE THAT AND WENT AHEAD TO ANNEX INTO THE CITY TO MAK THIS 36-ACRE PARK. OUTSIDE OF THAT, NOT A WHOLE LOT OF OTHER AREAS, BUT IT IS CONTINUING TO BE A PART OF OUR STRATEGIC PLANNING AND NOT IN THE PARKS PLAN AND NOTHING THERE AT THE MOMENT AND IT DOESN'T MEAN THAT IT IS NOT GOING TO CONTINUE TO BE LOOKED AT.

ONE OF THE ITEMS THAT I SAID IS PART OF STRATEGIC PLANNING KNOWING THAT THE CITY IS GROWING AND KNOWING WITH THE PARK ACREAGE AND LEVEL OF SERVICE THAT WE WANT TO OFFER.

IT HAS BEEN ONE OF THE DIRECTIVES IN THE PAST TO CONTINUE TO LOOK AT VACANT PROPERTY.

>> IS THERE A POSSIBILITY OF WORKING WITH AN SID WITH A PORTION OF THE GOLF COURSE OR A PORTION OF IT?

>> CHRISTINE GARZA: I THINK BRING THAT TO THE CITY

MANAGEMENT FOREFRONT? >> I JUST THROW IT OUT THERE BECAUSE AN AWFUL LOT OF LAND BEING BOUGHT FOR PUBLIC USE.

>> CHRISTINE GARZA: YEP. >> I LIVE IN HERON BAY.

SO I WOULD SECOND THAT.

THE NSID CAME UP IN TERMS WITH THE DEVELOPER TODAY.

>> CHRISTINE GARZA: OKAY. >> SOMETHING WE SHOULD CONSIDER

LOOKING AT. >> CHRISTINE GARZA: THANK YOU

FOR THE IDEA. >> HOWARD WYNER: COMMENTS FROM

STAFF? >> CHRISTINE GARZA: WE MADE ALL THE COMMENTS. WE ARE GOOD.

>> HOWARD WYNER: IN THAT CASE, CAN I GET -- IF ANYONE WANTS TO

MAKE A MOTION TO ADJOURN? >> CHRISTINE
