NOTES from the Rec and Parks Board of Directors Meeting – September 4, 2013

Boulder Creek Recs and Parks

The following members were present:

Tess Fitzgerald
George Galt
Diana Hamilton
Kim Main

Brian Valdivia was absent from the meeting

The meeting lasted an hour and half. There was the agenda with 23 pages of documentation covering such things as expenses and revenue for August, as well as news and notices the board had received in August. These included items such as: the California Special Districts Association requesting a feedback form, LAFCO including a sphere of influence study dated 7/1/2013 and an agenda from their 8/7/2013 meeting.

NOTES

Junction park is going to have new signs to replace the ones that were stolen / vandalized. They are also looking at doing some improvements to the stairs to the beach.

Garrahan Park is going to have a pesticide treatment sometime in November a notice will be posted. The board was hoping they would not have to do this, and are planning to only do it once a year. There is currently a large problem with clover on the field which is attracting bees. I visited this park during a birthday party recently and the bees are a problem one child got stung while I was there. The board is hoping by doing it in November when it is less used and before the rainy season will limit the pesticides exposure to the environment and the general public.

Barbara Day Park is going to be having new signage as well stating no fishing with educational information about the river being a protected fishery, the populations and status of steelhead and coho as well as contact info for CDFW and or NOAA law enforcement. Continue reading

NOTES from the Rec and Parks Board of Directors Meeting – August 7, 2013

Boulder Creek Recs and Parks

The following members were present:

George Galt
Diana Hamilton
Kim Main
Brian Valdivia

Tess Fitzgerald was absent from the meeting

The meeting lasted 47 minutes. There was the agenda with 33 pages of documentation covering such things as expenses and revenue for July, as well as news and notices the board had received in June and July. These included tems such as the Communicator, Notice of Public Hearing for the Cell Tower, New Mountain Echo, and Capri News. It also included upcoming meetings:

California State Parks, Habitat Conservation Fund (HCF) Technical Assistance Meeting
Wednesday 8/14, 9:00am – 11:00am, in Sacramento

California State Parks, Recreational Trails Program Advisory Board Meeting
Tuesday 8/27, 10:00am – 12:00noon, in Sacramento

The final part was the fiscal budget for 2013 / 2014. The budget is usually around $200,000 a year, this year it is $251,295 which was approved by unanimous consent. They are hoping this increased portion of the budget will be covered by new forms of revenue.

The radio memorandum was signed earlier this week and on Sunday at midnight should start broadcasting at 90.1 KBEC. This will fulfill FCC requirements to keep the channel going. The Rec & Park board hopes to have the radio station up and broadcasting sometime in December or January.

The following items are still pending:

1) Strategic Planning by subcommittee meeting 8/27
2) Master Plan meeting in October, date still not set
3) Dog Park, this is currently being discussed and planned by members of the community. They are hoping to meet sometime in August. It is not yet in the Rec & Park Boards hands yet, still very much a citizens movement and in the early planning stages.

Possible changes for 4th of July next year:

For food next year the Rec & Park department may go with a vender instead of doing it all themselves like they did this year. This would put less stress on employees and allow them to focus on other things that need their attention.

Final note:

Castle Rock Park is beautiful this time of year, they are having their next Historical Talk Sunday 10/27/2013

Meeting Tomorrow: Boulder Creek Radio

The Boulder Creek Recreation District Board of Directors will be deciding whether or not to expend District funds in the amount of $12,000 to purchase a non-commercial educational radio frequency on Tuesday, July 30 at 6:00 p.m.
This would be the meeting for District residents to come and tell the Board if this is something they consider to be an asset to our community and/or a good use of District funds.
When: Tuesday, July 30 at 6:00 p.m.
Where: The Rec Hall in downtown Boulder Creek

In The News: Barbara Day Park and crime

Joe Shreve at the Press Banner has posted an article regarding the issues at Boulder Creek’s Barbara Day Park. From the article:

“Several described Barbara Day Park — the dam park at Middleton and Fairview avenues — as a place where people are regularly drunk or high, party at all hours of the night and trespass onto private property. They said dogs are often allowed off their leashes, trash accumulates and broken glass and discarded hypodermic needles are common hazards.”
