of Brentwood Aquatic Complex Neighborhood Park conceptual plan.
Submitted by: Craig
Approved by: Jon
Elam, City Manager
Approve the recommendation from the Park and Recreation Commission
for approval of the City of Brentwood Family Aquatic Complex Neighborhood
Park conceptual plan.
PREVIOUS ACTION The Council Park and Recreation sub-committee approved a conceptual
site plan for the aquatic complex and surrounding park property in 1998.
Phase one, which is currently under construction, is the aquatic
complex itself. Phase two is to design the park property that is adjacent to
the park and Brentwood Elementary School.
BACKGROUND The City
of Brentwood Family Aquatic Complex started construction in October
1999. At the same time,
a Skate Park Task force was approved by City Council to move the skate
park project forward. In
reviewing available sites for the project, the task force recommended
placement adjacent to the Family Aquatic Complex.
The original conceptual plan for the park showed a skate park,
however exact placement had never been determined.
the skate park project moving forward, staff started working with RRM
Design, one of our contractual landscape architectural firms, to develop
on a master plan for the park.
Since the park will also serve as a buffer area for the pool
and skate park, the design should work to support the existing uses
and meet the needs of the neighborhood.
community meetings were held to solicit input from the neighborhood
and community related to the types of use and amenities that should
be designed in the park. The
first meeting was held on February 5, 2000 at Brentwood Elementary School. RRM Design developed two conceptual plans from the input at
this meeting. The second
meeting was held on March 11, 2000 in the Council Chambers to review
the two conceptual plans.
final conceptual design and estimated budget was prepared by RRM Design
as a result of this meeting. The
new design and budget was presented by RRM Design to the Park and Recreation
Commission at their March 30, 2000 meeting.
The commission reviewed the plan and approved it as the preliminary
plan for the neighborhood park.
the original conceptual plan for the site originated with the Council
sub-committee, the Park and Recreation Commission requests their approval
be confirmed by the City Council as the conceptual plan for the park
as it relates to the aquatic complex, the commercial site, and the skate
Park and Recreation Commission also discussed the estimated budget for
the park and have directed staff to work with RRM on a phasing plan
through the CIP program for development of the park.
is recommending City Council approve the recommendation from the Park
and Recreation Commission for the conceptual plan.
Staff will continue to work through the CIP budget process to
phase development of the park with Park and Recreation Commission approval.
RRM Design will be in attendance at the Council meeting to provide a brief overview of the design and to answer questions.
