DRC Meeting - Shared screen with speaker view

For the bball court, regardless of size … if there are major grade changes we should make sure we take maintenance into account. I think about the challenges we have with the tennis courts @ Burr park (by Bigelow MS)
SingNing Kuo

It will be helpful to put spot elevations at each building entry, 2 playgrounds and the basketball court.
Ellen Light
49:26
I agree strongly with you SingNing!
Stephanie Gilman
51:03
I agree. It would be helpful to know which levels are higher than others. And also what the elevation is at the entrances.

Apologies folks! Trying to listen to the meeting while traveling and accidentally turned off mute.

The topos are there, but the layer is very light.

Andreae Downs

I agree with Jonathan.
John Oliver
01:06:04
I disagree with the idea of moving the bball court away y from the other play areas … I would think that @ recess times it’s best to see ‘everyone’ in one large area?
John Mulligan
01:07:42
Agree with John, they don’t have staff to monitor the other side of the gym during recess.
John Oliver
01:10:12
Ask the soccer groups too … they have a lot of u10’s if I recall
Josh Morse
01:10:38
Simplify and minimize the elevation changes from north to south through the entire play area. Limit the amount of stairs is possible. Show spot topos on the major site elements.
Andreae Downs
01:10:42
If the blue zone is along the “soccer field,” then how will kids access the front door? If it is not fenced, they will run diagonally to the doors.
Josh Morse
01:17:37
There would be a fence along Jackson Road.
Maria Leo
01:18:15
Would the soccer field have an additional fence?
Andreae Downs
01:18:51
That will protect your field, but will make dropping off anywhere but at the openings of the fence unattractive. Parents will not drop & roll before.
Andreae Downs
01:24:47
One of the concerns we see at other school buildings is parents using the staff lots to get closer to the front door for drop off (or park & walk). How does this design discourage that kind of behavior?
John Oliver
01:26:28
From a playability POV, the field should not have another fence
Stephanie Gilman
01:46:29
If you screen the fence around the bball court, you also end up screening the main entry. Ideally, we would not want to screen the main entry.
Andreae Downs
01:47:51
I like the stair coming up to the second floor. I think the common area is nice, but it will be loud!
David Gillespie
01:56:42
Great job arrowstreet!
Peter Barrer
01:56:55
Yes, great job!
Ellen Light
02:07:28
Thanks Tina... strong team and good work!
Stephanie Gilman
02:08:27
Thank you!
John Mulligan
02:08:45
Thanks!
David Gillespie

Good luck tomorrow!
