Cheryl Hunt, Ted Wright, Glen Reaser and Eddie Tidwell were present (along with City Manager Pam Polk) for a report by park architect LandPlan's Barbara Tartar. Park Board member

Pam Webb had submitted the following resignation letter:

October 23, 2012
To: Collinsville Park Board
From: Pam Webb
Members of the Park Board—
After much thought and consideration of my time in the upcoming months, it has become evident that I must resign from the Park Board.
I am entering the busiest time of my work schedule and it will remain this way until February or March of next year—and most likely beyond. That being said, I must re-evaluate the extra-curricular activities I have committed to and make adjustments in order to keep some time for myself. As well, it will be impossible for me to attend meetings as I have many weekdays and evenings completely booked. These events require my presence as well as my time.
I have thoroughly enjoyed working with each and every one of you, as well as the City officials. I wish you the best of luck in making plans for the future of Collinsville Park.
Pam Webb

Barbara Tartar indicated construction on the 8 foot wide concrete trail in city park could begin construction in the next few weeks with completion likely in early spring 2013.

The recently awarded Land & Water grant will provide partial funding for a trail connect to the project above in addition to two picnic shelters. A parking section near the basketball court is also included in the second project which is yet to be designed (by LandPlan).

The discussion and questions relating to the tail and potential tie-in with the Phase III Streetscape (and corresponsing sidewalks toward the park from downtown) may have a gap between the two plans.

The November Park Board Meet will likely be held at the park instead of city hall (and possibly at noon instead of 4:30 as the time change occurs in November).
