Chief Planner Leana described the planning processi for Specific Planning Area “D” from 1983 to present date, which included zoning and land uses surrounding the park site.

Martin Walker, 1106 Mill Creek Way, expressed the desire to have the park improved.

Henry Garcia, 1172 Shadowcliff Way, asked if the City Manager was recommending that the park be improved.  Mr. Elam said yes.

Doug Adams, Superintendent of Brentwood Union School District, advised that Loma Vista School is on schedule to open on time, and that the School Board is agreeable to working with the City and residents to improve the park.   He cautioned making any changes to the site before District receives official occupancy due to site still being under the control of the State Board of Education.

Kirk Taylor, 1864 Highland Way, asked if a calculation of the site was taken.

Mr. Elam said no; however, it was approximately three to three and a half acres. 

Construction Inspector Byrd described the irrigation system and the establishment of the sod.

Michael Macintosh, 1049 Meadow Gate Way, asked when the temporary fence would be removed.

Mr. Byrd advised that it should be down on or near June 27, when the City accepts the park.

Mr. Macintosh asked if Diamond Springs Drive would become a parking lot.  He asked about the installation of a barrier, and inquired about traffic problems when school opens.

Councilmember McPoland advised that the City Engineer is in the process of looking at traffic calming measures in the area.

        Olivia Taylor, 1864 Highland Way, asked where the residents could go to get direct answers when issues and rumors rise.

Mayor Kidd directed Ms. Taylor to the Planning Department and the City Manager’s Office.

City Attorney Beougher noted that the City only has control over public land transactions, and has no control over private land deals.

Kurt Crasper, 1818 Highland Way, asked if Highland Way would become an arterial street when it is connected to Fairview.

Mr. Leana advised that Highland Way would not be an arterial street.

Jacquelene Crasper, 1818 Highland Way, asked if the land north of the park site was going to be a church.

Mr. Elam advised that the City has not received an application as of this date.

The Council directed staff to work on the development of the park site with a landscape architect, the neighborhood, and the School District.

There being no further business, the meeting was adjourned at 8:15 p.m.
