Accept the Park and Recreation Commission recommendation of the conceptual design developed by Abey/Arnold Associates for Sand Creek Park open turf fields located at Fairview Avenue and Sand Creek Road.
At the October, 2002 Sunset Sports Complex Subcommittee meeting, the Sand Creek Community Park design and development plan was discussed. As per the 2002/07 Capital Improvement Program, Sand Creek Park is not anticipated to be built within the next 5 years. East Diablo Youth Soccer League and the PONY Baseball League have expressed interest in the possibility of developing temporary fields at this future park site located at the corner of Sand Creek Road and Fairview Avenue.
The subcommittee directed the user groups to work directly with the Park and Recreation Commission. Prior to meeting with the Park and Recreation Commission and the user groups, staff requested Abey/Arnold Landscape Architects, one of the City’s contract landscape architecture firms, to develop a Preliminary Design for open turf fields that would integrate into the final design concept and develop an Opinion of Probable Costs.
Abey/Arnold presented the Preliminary Design and the Opinion of Probable Costs at the October, 2002 Park and Recreation Commission meeting. The design includes two full size soccer fields, or four fields for under 12 year olds, with an overlay of two ball fields, one full size and one for softball and/or younger PONY team use. The Preliminary design met with both East Diablo Youth Soccer and PONY Baseball representative’s approval.
The user group representatives and the Park and Recreation Commissioners then discussed the costs associated with the preliminary design. The user group representatives stated they would be interested in raising funds to support this field development as well as donating materials and providing volunteer labor to move the project forward.
The Park and Recreation Commission then recommended forwarding this Conceptual Design of Sand Creek Park open space fields to the City Council for review and acceptance. Staff is recommending approval of this conceptual plan and will work with PONY and EDYSL to develop the open space fields if there is an interest.
Staff has identified project design development of Sand Creek Community Park, CIP Project #522-5203, in fiscal 04-05 with construction budgeted over the next two fiscal years, 05/06 and 06/07. However, no funding is allocated to this project in the current CIP.
Acceptance of this preliminary design will allow staff to work with the user groups in pursuing funding opportunities to develop the open space fields prior to development of the entire parksite.
