Park Committee Meeting Minutes
March 26, 2007 @ 6:35 PM
Present: Steve Root, Janine Jensen, Bob Johnson, Mark Brylski
Also present: James and Thomas Wollin, Pen Beasley
The meeting was called to order by Steve Root.
The minutes from the previous meeting were read. Bob moved to approve and Mark seconded. Motion carried.
Thomas Wollin approached the committee about his interest in an Eagle Scout project. He is interested in creating a sign which will list all Eagle Scout projects that have been completed in the Town of Oregon. While the committee knows that they want a sign to document these efforts, they are entirely open to a discussion of the design. After some discussion, it was felt that a simple sign could be created and located near the Glenway entrance to the park, and a much more detailed sign about the projects located near the equipment. This sign would list all Eagle Scout projects within the township. The size of the signs would be limited to 4' X 8'. The committee informed Thomas that there would need to be some research involved in this project and he was given some ideas on where to start looking. The scout is very interested in proceeding.
Steve reported that the phrase, "Sunrise to Sunset" was approved by the Town Board. Bob will order the new stickers for the signs indicating the new time. Bob will order approximately 20 stickers.
Steve also reported that the Town Board also approved Mark Brylski to be a member of the committee.
Pen gave a report on the new law dealing with impact fees. She reported that the law deals with park fees that have been collected since 1995. Pen suggested that all park fees collected between 1995 and 1997 should be spent, and Steve felt this was not a problem. He will write a report indicating how those fees that were collected were part of the Phase 1 expenditures in the Town Park. Pen made the suggestion that the committee have a formal plan with budgets, etc. She also suggested that the committee might look into purchasing property to establish a bike trail.
The work dates will be Saturday, May 5th @ 8AM and a secondary date will be May 12th @ 8AM.
The next meeting will be April 23rd at 7:00pm.
Bob moved to adjourn and Steve seconded the motion. Motion carried.
