But agreed that if the school has a near term need (in Sept 2015 for
a seminar?) and presents an acceptable plan for a board, the park board/city
could then consider approval for a school installed solution after review.
6. Status on pending
Park Projects. -- Miscellaneous topics:
* sewer order near creek entry likely due to vented manhole cover which
was swapped out for another location ... to be corrected with non-vented
* basketball fence needs work near east basket
part of this park board meeting ... but instead a pre-meeting which
flowed into the park board time slot: Pam Polk, Nick Mendez, Phil
Stowell, Rory Peterson, and Ted Wright ... joined later by most
of the park board ... discussed status of the proposed
bike trail at city lake:
* Tony Boone (a professional trail builder) will be contracted to
visit (in November 2015) and design a trail on city property adjacent
to the city lake northeast of town.
* City Manager Pam Polk is working on potential grants to help fund
the trail. There is one potential $25K Healthy Living grant that
interestingly requires that the city have a "farmers market".
Pam will be seek clarification to see if "Bountiful Baskets"
food distribution or the community garden might meet that grant
* Pam Polk is also following up on a potential estate donation to
* Organizer Nick Mendez has volunteer to be the "trail 'boss"
to oversee/coordinate it's operation and maintenance
* The trail is expected to be about 3 miles in total with several
switchbacks and crossovers.
* The bike trail at Claremore is a good example of what is hoped
for at the Collinsville site. It is more beginner friendly ... than
say the steep trail at Turkey Mountain in Tulsa. Rory Peterson (Claremore's
tral boss) attended this meeting and offerred several suggestions
* The project would hopefully be more than just the trail with trail
head features such as parking, bike racks, signs, picnic tables,
maps, etc ... and potentially a rest room at a later date.
* Cost of the project would vary depending on the amount of volunteer
labor and equipment that could be used.
* Oklahoma Earth Bike Fellowship is willing to help promote the
Wright comments in purple.
