TOWN OF OREGON PARK COMMITTEE
Monday January 31, 2011 @6:30pm
Present: Steve Root, Janine Jensen, Mark Brylski, Bob Johnson
Also present: Chris Johnson
The meeting was called to order by Steve Root.
The minutes from the previous meeting were read and approved with one minor addition: the
length of the proposed trail project for the Eagle Scout project is amended to read 100 plus feet.
Thom Grenlie, who completed the original survey of Ravenoaks Park has completed the resurvey
of the park for a cost of $1556 and has been paid. The original corner stakes were
somewhat difficult to locate, and the surveyor was successful in locating only one. Steel stakes
for marking the park have been donated by Jerry Jensen. The committee may paint the green
stakes a brighter color in the spring to make them more visible. Max, the Eagle Scout candidate,
called Steve and found out that the survey has been completed. He has presented his proposed
project to the Scout council who requested some modifications. He hopes to make a report to the
committee at its March meeting.
A Ravenoaks Park neighbor has expressed an interest in taking down some of the trees in the
trail area. The committee wants to verify that the neighbor will meet the insurance requirement
prior to allowing this. Another neighbor called Steve questioning why the survey was being
done and Steve informed the individual that it was to make certain that the boundaries were
evident to all interested parties before any projects began in the park.
The extra braces have been added on to the roof of the gazebo by Garrett Frankson for an
additional cost of $103. Steve read to the committee the proposed language for the plaque that
will be placed on the gazebo.
Tom Richards has requested a meeting with Steve to discuss an Eagle Scout project including a
new trail in the Town Park.
Nicholas Tree Services will be contacted to do more tree trimming. Bob moved and Mark
seconded the motion that if the quote is $2000 or under, Steve is authorized to hire them for the
The next meeting will be Monday, February 21, 2011 at 6:30 pm.
Bob moved to adjourn and Mark seconded the motion. Motion carried.
