Present were Park Board members: Tom Jenny, Bob Hatlestad and Norman Teigen. Also present was staff liaison Steve Stadler. Absent were Caroline Rinker and Abbey Bryduck.
The Park Board discussed the current 2014-2023 Capital Improvement Plan. The Board considered what the current parks have to offer the public and how park users’ experiences might be enhanced in our park system. Specifically, are there certain parks wherein some new features and/or rehabbed amenities are needed to enhance the park’s value to the public. The attending Board members did some brainstorming of ideas at certain parks. The goal being to put together a proposal for City Council to consider as City Council continues to discuss the proposed revamped City financial management plan. Stadler will send out an email to each PB member seeking input and ideas for the January 27 Park Board Meeting.
Stadler provided an update including the play equipment concept drawings from the selected play equipment designer/supplier – Flagship Recreation.
