4. PUBLIC HEARING Review, discussion and possible action regarding
the Collinsville City Park Master Plan update. -- The
park board approved an updated version of the park master plan concept (changed
since the graphics on this page). Changes include a storage building and an
additional picnic shelter near the splash pad.
board also approved two grant application proposals.One for a new 8 foot wide
concrete trail in the park with 20% city matching funds ($49.4K) for $160K
in from an "Oklahoma Recreational Trails Plan Grant" totaling $209,474.
That trail would be on the east side of the park. A second potential grant
from "Land & Water Conservation" could provide 50% matching
funds for $306K total improvements including 2 new covered picnic shelters
near the splashpad/playground, partial parking areas and a connection to the
new path, and additional landscape near the splash/play area. The estimated
city cost would be $202K (for both) and is available from 2009 bond (sale
tax increase) funds according to City Manager Pam Polk.
will likely be on the next city commission agenda as the deadline for the
two grant applications is the end of this January. Grant notification could
come mid-year for a 2 year completion cycle.

|This is just a portion
of the larger overview (below) showing a few proposed additional park
improvements. Additional parking, walking trail, pond, and an 18-hole
Frisbee Golf Course (yellow dashed lines) are also included below. No
action was taken Monday as there was not a quorum for the Park Board but
another meeting is likely in the near future to hopefully meet some end-of-January
grant deadlines which might help with funding for some features. If you
have comments or recommendations let me (or the park board or city commission)
know. -- Ted Wright 12/21/2010
There have been a few revisions to this drawing since the informal Dec. 2010
meet... including a park storage building. -- Ted
