ISLAND VIEW PARK, PUBLIC OUTREACH PROJECT DISCUSSION

Bruce Cox, Parks and Recreation Director, introduced Catherine Drake who is a graduate student from Brigham Young University. Ms. Drake is doing her EMPA project on the public outreach efforts for possible remodel ideas for Island View Park. Discussions were held previously on remodeling certain amenities at the park, and it has been talked about possibly even remodeling the entire park. She will be doing a survey with the Centerville residents to better determine what they would like to see happen with this park. A copy of the proposed survey was reviewed by the Committee. This survey will be mailed with the utility bill to Centerville residents. Tamilyn Fillmore, City Council Liaison, mentioned that many people pay their utility bill online and would not see the survey. A more detailed survey will be mailed to the residents that live near the park. A prize drawing for movie tickets will be considered for residents who return design ideas with their surveys.

At 7:12 p.m., Lynn Keddington arrived at the meeting.

Jake Smith, Assistant City Manager, asked how the information will be disseminated and collected. Ms. Drake explained the survey can be mailed back with the utility bill, or residents can go to the City website and complete the survey online when they pay their bill.

Tamilyn Fillmore, City Council Liaison, reported the local recreation programs are being pushed to the side, because the competition leagues have more money, and they are reserving the soccer fields. Mr. Cox suggested the possibility of doing an Intergovernmental Agency Loan from the South Davis Recreation Center or from our own Cemetery Perpetual Care Fund, so the Community Park Expansion can be done sooner.

The Davis County Jobs Training Program through DATC is looking for projects for their students to do. She suggested asking the class to build a masonry wall on the west end of Founders Park that would follow the sidewalk. This wall would help keep small children from running onto Main Street while at the park.

At 8:05 p.m., Tamilyn Fillmore, Catharine Drake and Jacob Smith were excused from the meeting.

Chair Kyle Barney asked what it would cost to finish the ball park at the Community Park. Mr. Cox said he will find provide this information at the next meeting.
