Hi Everyone - you should have received an email a short time ago with tonight's presentation for your use.

Concerned about foul balls in the play area (#4)

What is the purpose of the walls in the garden between plots?
Pat Abercrombie Fitch Mtn
50:48
With the wait list they have, won't the gardeners want to use more of the site for actual plots?
Mark Themig
51:28
Re purpose of the walls: separation between garden plots. it takes up less space than walkways between each plot like at badger
Mark Themig
51:55
Re waitlist: not sure i understand this question. we can cover it during discussion.
Pat Abercrombie Fitch Mtn

Please consider only downward facing light fixtures to retain dark skies.
Cindy Beth
59:21
My concern is dogs moving from dog park to ball fields
Brian Geagan

Multi-use features of the park are very good --- would appeal to many different segments of community. Nice mix of active and passive areas. Successful incorporation of Foss Creek. Parking lots are divided --- avoiding one or several big ugly lots.

Off-leash dog area seems kinda close to the road.

Can the garden be wrapped around the backside of the lawn area? Or is that sidewalk a hard line for wetland?
Chris Herrod
01:04:50
Will there / can there be trails in the area to the right of the long parking lot?
Samantha Marquis
01:05:13
Wait does small dog park mean a park for only small sized dogs or small in space?
Mindy Kiff
01:05:53
Love seeing the pump track back in the mix! All of the trees in the design is great as well. Do the light fixtures need to be industrial or can they be similar to the new lights along that portion of Healdsburg Ave - those are beautiful.
Nancy Jane Andrews

The Pump Track is an enthusiasm of David Hagele. It is not popular generally. He organized a letter from young kids to influence other Council Members.
Peter Mork
01:06:43
Any details on the pump track? Is this for scooters/skateboards/bikes? Phenomenal idea as adds another feature that will be used by lots of kids.
Stephen Schwartz
01:06:45
What is the plan for the multi purpose courts? How many and how striped?
lacey scott
01:07:16
Very excited about the pump track
Brian Geagan
01:07:58
Have bike parking locations been identified? Perhaps bike maintenance / tool station could be considered (like City Hall and Healdsburg Ridge).
Cindy Beth
01:08:47
I love the pump track too!
Mark McMullen
01:09:25
Restrooms appear to be split far away from play area and Picnic pavilion. Is there just one set of restrooms?
Samantha Marquis
01:09:27
There is currently a cut through on Spur Ridge to the trail. Would that remain in tact? Could someone could still access the park from that direction by foot?
lacey scott
01:09:42
I think there’s a lot more enthusiasm for the pump track than just Hagele
Alina Vanoni Collin
01:09:50
Parents and kids are excited about the pump track too!
Chris Herrod
01:10:32
Can you flesh out what you have in mind for areas #12 and #14?
Walter Niederberger
01:11:58
No need for more than 1 bike repair station (coming from a cyclist)
Walter Niederberger
01:12:26
What kind of surface for the soccer field?
Walter Niederberger
01:13:14
Do you consider permeable parking surface?
Mark McMullen
01:13:26
What about bike path on fire trail from Healdsburg area by Spurridge?
lacey scott
01:13:26
Sorry confused about the tennis/Pickle ball. Did Lauren say that the courts would be shared and stripped for both?
Chris Herrod
01:13:48
Site plan
Mark McMullen
01:16:01
There is a "drop off" point at the north end parking lot. What about in the south by the family areas? We want to discourage driving. When shuttles are common in 5+ years, people will be dropped off.
Kenneth Munson
01:16:44
Can we add tree’s to parking area (Parking orchard looks nicer and provides shade over asphalt). Hoping that a flooded area riparian (which happens in winter) can be extended into additional times of the year!! :-). I think that community garden area may need to venture a little more towards “traditional” plots vs the retaining wall “gardens” shown.
Mark McMullen
01:16:47
Can the LED lights be controlled for an arts application?
MaryPat Moore
01:16:47
wouldn't the pollinator garden be better near the community garden? Also there should be no trees near vegetable garden.
Nancy Jane Andrews
01:16:56
Vehicular Circulation question. Can cars enter from Parkland Farms to park?
Kenneth Munson
01:17:38
Lighting must be cut-off style to guard against line-of-site/direct lighting.
MaryPat Moore
01:19:16
What size plots are being planned & how many?
Kenneth Munson
01:19:49
…water that can’t infiltrate could be stored in a beautiful reservoir…just say’n
Cecilia Pietropaoli
01:21:16
Will there be access to water in the off leash areas
Kenneth Munson
01:26:56
I head the beginning….reports….things change. Keep fighting
Brian Geagan
01:30:26
Shade will be a valuable feature during the hot months. Are there enough natural features and built features that offer shade?
Mindy Kiff
01:34:46
Please check out Stafford Lake Bike Park in Novato. Wonderful and highly used bike park. Montage park is perfect for a small version of this.
Mary Beth Vierra
01:35:07
Thank you David F for giving a bit of a perspective. I’m open to learning more. If it fits into the nature design, much nicer. I’d still hate to have that entire area pictured dominated by a PT when we could really benefit from some wide open space as well. Cheers!
Kenneth Munson
01:35:33
Skate Park: That’s where a pump track fits better. When it rains, not in use.
lacey scott
01:36:26
If we didn’t have a chance to complete the exercise can we still? I’d love to participate in it but have been slammed the last couple days and didn’t have a chance.
Samantha Marquis
01:36:44
I agree with Lacey
Mark Themig
01:37:27
Yes Lacey. Definitely complete the exercise if you haven't had a chance yet.
Lee Sigler
01:38:13
Good overall direction - something for a lot of people. Am not in favor of off leash dog park. I’m guessing there is not enough parking,
Kenneth Munson
01:42:32
Great progress Fletcher Team!!….(seems a shame that 1/2 of the “Park” is surrendered to wetlands). Is there nothing we can use these area’s for or will they be “don’t go/walk here”?
Mary Beth Vierra
01:43:39
I will ditto Cecilia’s comment about water features. I’m not sure how we haven’t discussed yet. It was one of my original dream/desires for this park :)
Chris Herrod
01:45:24
The water feature at Howarth park is awesome, kids love it and doesn't take a lot of space.
Brian Geagan
01:56:45
Yes, this design is the right direction. Great work. Great process.
Mark Themig
02:05:46
Hi Everyone - we are pushing up to two hours so we're going to go to next steps and follow-up on the design elements at another time. We will also put together another exercise so you can send your comments after you digest the information a bit more. Such good input this evening!
Walter Niederberger
02:09:20
I agree with Ken, wetlands are half of the park. Are there plans to use them when they are dry (9 months of the year)?
