I DON'T PAY DENNIS.

SO THAT'S AN AGENDA ITEM.

UM, THAT'S A NEW ITEM.

UM, WE DID NOT PREVIOUSLY DISCUSS THAT ONE, BUT, UH, COUNCIL HAD REQUESTED THAT A CITY LOOK INTO THAT.

UH, JOSH HAS BEEN WORKING TO GET SOME DETAILS ON THAT AND HE IS CURRENTLY WORKING ON THE PACKAGE, UM, RIGHT NOW.

SO HOPEFULLY WE'LL SEE A REBOUND, UH, IN THE USAGE OF THE SHELTERS, UM, IN 2021.

BUT OTHER THAN THAT, THAT'S WHERE WE'RE AT.

OKAY.

ARE THERE ANY QUESTIONS OR COMMENTS FOR CHRIS ON THOSE SUBJECTS? OKAY.

UH, GO AHEAD AND MOVE ON TO NEWS NEW BUSINESS HERE.

[00:05:01]

SO, UM, AS YOU ALL ARE AWARE, UM, EVERY YEAR AROUND DECEMBER OR AROUND DECEMBER, JANUARY, WE START TO LOOK AT, UM, AND APPOINTING A NEW CHAIR AND VICE CHAIR, UH, FOR THE PARKS AND RECREATION BOARD.

SO FIRST LET ME ASK, ARE, ARE THERE ANY NOMINATIONS FOR THAT OR IS THERE ANYONE INTERESTED IN SERVING IN THOSE TWO POSITIONS? OKAY.

SO LET ME ASK THIS QUESTION.

ARE THERE ANY NOMINATIONS? OKAY.

I SEE LOTS OF SOUNDS.

SO, UH, I'LL START WITH, UH, J HOW ABOUT VINCE KING? I HEAR HE'S A GOOD GUY.

ARE THERE ANY OTHER NOMINATIONS? WELL, I THINK, YOU KNOW, UH, BEFORE WE STARTED MAKING A NOMINATION, UNLESS SOMEONE ELSE WON'T, OH, LIKE THE HAIR, A JOB, I DON'T THINK THIS IS A, UH, THE TIME TO MAKE CHANGES ON THAT VEST AND BREAD ARE READY TO GIVE IT UP OR TO GO TO GENTLEMEN HAD A SAY, I'LL START WITH YOU, BRIAN.

WELL, UH, RIGHT NOW FOR ME TO ADVISE, SHARE HAS BEEN ACTUALLY QUITE SIMPLE SINCE VINCI SHOW UP PRETTY REGULARLY.

AND YOU DO AN OUTSTANDING JOB AT WHAT YOU DO.

I'VE THE ORGANIZATION, GETTING EVERYTHING SET UP HAS BEEN AMAZING FROM YOU.

UM, I, I WON'T BE ABLE TO DO NOWHERE NEAR AS GOOD OF A JOB AS YOU ARE, ESPECIALLY WITH MY SCHEDULE.

UM, I HAVE NO PROBLEM STEPPING IN AND RUNNING A MEETING IF YOU'RE NOT THERE.

UH, SO I, I CAN STAY AS A VICE CHAIR, AS LONG AS YOU WERE PROBABLY THERE AS THE CHAIR, SINCE YOU DO MAKE IT SO MUCH EASIER.

OKAY.

UH, CHAIR, IT'S ACTUALLY BEEN A, A, A GREAT LEARNING EXPERIENCE FOR ME, ESPECIALLY, YOU KNOW, SEEING WHERE, WHEN I STEPPED, WHEN I CAME ON BOARD, UM, SEVERAL YEARS AGO TO TODAY.

SO IT'S, YOU KNOW, SO I THINK WE, AS A BOARD HAVE CONTINUED TO GROW AND HAVE CONTINUED TO MAKE THE NECESSARY CHANGES TO MOVE FORWARD.

SO I DON'T MIND SERVING, I JUST WANT TO MAKE SURE THAT THERE ARE NO OTHER INTERESTED PARTIES AND SERVING AS CHAIR OR VICE CHAIR.

YEAH.

YEAH.

SO YOU USED SOME WEST HERE, SO, OKAY.

SO WHAT I WILL DO IS, UH, SO WE NEED A NOMINATION FISH.

YES.

WE NEED A NOMINATE.

WELL, YES, WE NEED A NOMINATION FOR, UH, WELL, WE ALREADY HAVE ONE FOR ME, SO IS THERE A SECOND AND LET YOU KNOW, IS THERE A SECOND CHECK IT BACK IN.

OKAY, DENNIS.

OKAY.

UM, AND THEN WE'LL JUST GO AHEAD AND DO THEM BOTH AT THE SAME TIME, SINCE THERE ARE NO CHANGES, IS THERE A NON, UM, UM, IS THERE A NOMINATION FOR VICE CHAIR FOR BRIAN? FOR NOMINATION? OKAY.

SO WE HAVE, UH, GLENN AND BLAKE THERE, SO, OKAY.

SO THE MOTION ON THE FLOOR IS TO, UH, KEEP THE CHAIR AND VICE CHAIR THE SAME WITH VINCE KING AS THE CHAIR AND BRIAN DADDY AS THE VICE CHAIR.

IS THERE A MOTION? IS THERE A FIRST MOTION? WE KEEP THOSE TWO DENNIS.

OKAY.

SECOND, GO AHEAD.

RUSS GOLDEN OFF CHRIS HALL.

HARTFORD BOY.

KIRSTEIN YES.

GLENN POTTENGER YES.

DO YOU HAVE A SNYDER? YES.

OKAY.

ALL RIGHT.

ALL RIGHT.

SO WE HAVE A CHAIR AND VICE-CHAIR FOR 2021.

I WILL ADD THOSE TO THE END OF YEAR MEMO TO COUNCIL.

OKAY.

SO MOVING ON TO ITEM NUMBER, WE'RE TWO, UM, 2021 PROGRAMS AND VOLUNTEER OPPORTUNITIES.

SO, UM, AS A QUICK REVIEW HERE, I WANT TO, YOU KNOW, I KNOW THIS YEAR WAS, WAS FAIRLY TOUGH FOR US, UM, PROGRAMMING WISE, BUT FROM THE PARKS AND RECREATION BOARD PERSPECTIVE, THIS WAS ACTUALLY A PRETTY GOOD YEAR.

UM, WE HAD, YOU KNOW, WE HAD A COUPLE OF MOVIE NIGHTS, ESPECIALLY THE DRIVE-INS,

[00:10:01]

THOSE WERE VERY SUCCESSFUL.

UM, I WAS ABLE TO VOLUNTEER AT THE FARMER'S MARKET AND ACTUALLY TALK TO A BUNCH OF FOLKS, ESPECIALLY RESIDENTS ABOUT, YOU KNOW, THE PARTS, WHAT THEY WOULD LIKE TO SEE AS WELL.

SO WITH THAT SAID, UM, I SENT AN EMAIL OUT A COUPLE OF MONTHS AGO, UM, TO SEE IF YOU ALL HAVING IDEAS FOR 2021 PROGRAM.

AND I DID RECEIVE SEVERAL COMMENTS AND I'M GOING TO SEND A SPREADSHEET OUT TO EACH OF YOU, UH, TOMORROW AS SOON AS LIKE CLEANING UP SOME MORE AND THEN GLEN, I WILL PRINT IT FOR YOU.

SO NO PROBLEM I'LL PRINT IT AND DROP IT IN THE MAILBOX.

UM, SO FIRST I WANTED TO START WITH, UM, LIKE, SO BLAKE, YOU PROVIDED A COUPLE OF GREAT IDEAS IN ME NOT GROWING OUT OF GROWING UP IN HUBER.

CAN YOU TALK A LITTLE BIT ABOUT, UM, THERE'S A STEM DAY IN THE PARK, UM, THAT YOU HAD MENTIONED IN YOUR EMAIL? I WAS IN HIGH SCHOOL, UH, ONE OF THE SCIENCE TEACHERS, UM, MS. BLEDSOE, I DON'T REMEMBER HER FIRST NAME, BUT HER HUSBAND IS ON THE SCHOOL BOARD, I BELIEVE.

UM, SHE RAN AN ACTIVITY CALLED STEM DAY IN THE PARK.

IT WAS AT SHAWL PARK.

UM, I THINK IT WAS IN THE SPRING USUALLY, AND BASICALLY, UH, DIFFERENT ORGANIZATIONS WOULD COME, UM, THAT HAD, HAD TO DO WITH SCIENCE, TECHNOLOGY, ENGINEERING, MATH, UM, AND BASICALLY IT'S LIKE A, LIKE A CARNIVAL TYPE THING, UM, WHERE THERE'S JUST LIKE DIFFERENT BOOTHS.

UM, YOU KNOW, EACH BOOTH WOULD HAVE LIKE A THEME.

SO, UM, LIKE THE METRO PARKS HAD A BOOTH, UM, GLEN HELEN BROUGHT IN SOME ANIMALS, UH, YOU KNOW, FOR THE KIDS TO COME AND SEE.

AND BASICALLY IT WAS JUST LIKE AN ACTIVITY, LIKE A ONE DAY, YOU KNOW, FOUR OR FIVE HOURS ACTIVITY, UM, THAT KIDS COULD COME AND, AND EXPERIENCED SOME DIFFERENT, UH, STEM RELATED ACTIVITIES.

UM, SO EACH BOOTH WOULD HAVE LIKE SOME KIND OF ACTIVITY, WHETHER THEY BRING IN LIKE ANIMALS OR SOME KIND OF LIKE SCIENCE EXPERIMENT OR SOMETHING LIKE THAT.

UM, AND THAT, I THOUGHT THAT WAS REALLY NEAT.

UM, I DON'T KNOW IF THAT'S STILL GOING ON.

UM, BUT I GUESS IT WOULD HAVE BEEN LIKE SIX YEARS AGO, UH, WAS THE LAST TIME I'VE, I'VE HEARD OF IT GOING ON.

GREAT.

THANK YOU.

UM, I THOUGHT THAT WAS A REALLY GOOD, INTERESTING AND GOOD IDEA THERE JUST TO HELP BRING THE SCHOOLS OUT INTO THE PARK.

SO I THINK THAT'S ONE THAT WE CAN PROBABLY REACH OUT TO THE SCHOOL TO SEE IF THAT'S STILL BEING DONE, UM, AND FIGURE OUT HOW WE AS A PARKS AND RECREATION BOARD CAN PARTNER, YOU KNOW, IF THAT'S SOMETHING THAT WE WANTED TO DO.

AND, UM, SO WHEN I SEND THIS LIST OUT TO EVERYBODY, THIS WILL BE AN OPPORTUNITY FOR YOU ALL TO REALLY THINK ABOUT IT.

AND THEN STARTING IN JANUARY, WE'LL START LOOKING REALLY HARD.

UH, BRIAN.

YEAH.

UM, I KNOW THIS LAST YEAR, I DON'T THINK IT HAPPENED, BUT THERE'S BEEN PREVIOUS YEARS AS IT'S, I STILL SHOW GATE PARK.

THERE'S A STEM DAY.

OKAY.

UM, ACTUALLY I'M TRYING TO LOOK FOR IT RIGHT NOW.

I KNOW I'VE GOTTEN INFO ON IT BEFORE.

GREAT.

GREAT.

THANK YOU.

ALL RIGHT.

SO, UM, JUST THE LEGEND, SOME OF THE OTHER IDEAS THAT WE HAD, AND OF COURSE, I'M LOOKING AT IT FROM A COUPLE OF PERSPECTIVES HERE.

UM, SO THIS LIST WILL, YOU KNOW, WE DON'T KNOW WHERE COVID IS GOING TO TAKE US NEXT YEAR.

SO WE'RE LOOKING AT, I'M LOOKING AT IT FROM THE PERSPECTIVE OF, UM, WHAT CAN WE HOLD DURING COVID AND THEN IF COVID IS NOT THERE, HOW CAN WE EXPLAIN INTO SOME OTHER PROJECTS AS WELL? UM, SO ONE OF THEM THAT I SPECIFICALLY THOUGHT OF WAS A COMMUNITY DAY, SO LIKE A FIELD SPORTS STAYING, UM, WHERE WE COULD BRING, UM, MEMBERS OF THE COMMUNITY TOGETHER, SPECIFIC LOCATION HAVE A COUPLE OF SPORTS, UM, YOU KNOW, SPORT COMPETITIONS, UM, DEMONSTRATIONS, UM, YOU KNOW, MOVIES, ET CETERA.

UM, OF COURSE WE'RE GONNA NEED VOLUNTEERS FOR THAT, BUT THESE, THAT WAS JUST AN IDEA.

THAT'S ONE SPECIFIC DAY, WE COULD BRING EVERYONE INTO COMMUNITY TOGETHER TO HELP, YOU KNOW, UNITE THE COMMUNITY SOME MORE, UM, SOME OTHER IDEAS THAT WE HAD WERE PARKED CLEANUPS.

UM, BLAKE, YOU HAD MENTIONED, UM, THAT YOU WERE PROBABLY, I THINK YOU SAID YOU'D PROBABLY BE ABLE TO HELP SET SOMETHING UP MONTHLY AND FOR THAT.

UM, SO I THINK THAT'S A GREAT IDEA, UM, IN CONJUNCTION WITH DOING SOMETHING LIKE FOR EARTH DAY AS WELL.

UM, AND THEN WE ALSO HAVE ON HERE A SCAVENGER HUNT, UM, THERE'S AN APP THAT, UM, JOSH HAS BEEN LOOKING AT AND TO SEE IF IT'S FEASIBLE FOR US TO DO IT ELECTRONICALLY, TO POTENTIALLY DO IT WHERE, UM, IT'S, YOU KNOW, BY HOUSEHOLD.

OKAY.

SO THAT WAY PEOPLE CAN USE THEIR SMARTPHONES OR WE HAVE TO, WE CAN GO MANUAL, BUT WE WILL PLACE TALK ABOUT CERTAIN THINGS WITHIN THE PARK AND HAVE FOLKS GO OUT THERE AND FIND IT.

UM,

[00:15:02]

LET'S SEE.

UM, OF COURSE I HAVE ADOPTED A PARK ON THERE AND THAT'S ALSO ON THE LIST HERE.

UM, SO BASICALLY I WOULD LIKE TO RE-INSTITUTE THE ADOPTED PARK PROGRAM WHERE WE WOULD HAVE VOLUNTEERS, UM, VOLUNTEER ORGANIZATIONS COME OUT AND SPONSOR A PARK.

UM, AND THEN ALSO I WOULD LIKE TO PARTNER WITH THE ARTS BEAUTIFICATION BOARD AS WELL, TO HELP THEM TO SEE IF THEY WOULD, THEY WOULD BE WILLING TO HELP UNIFY, YOU KNOW, SOME OF THAT STUFF.

I KNOW THERE'S BEEN DISCUSSION ABOUT LOOKING AT, UM, BEAUTIFYING THE FRONT SIGNS THERE.

SO WHEN YOU DRIVE INTO THE PARK, YOU KNOW, YOU HAD THE FLOWER BEDS THAT ARE DRILLING THERE BY THE NAME OF THE PARK.

SO PROBABLY PARTNERING WITH THEM TO DO WHAT WE CAN DO IN THAT, IN THAT ARENA.

OF COURSE, UM, MOVIE NIGHTS ARE A PLUS.

SO I THINK FROM A PARKS AND RECREATION PERSPECTIVE, I THINK WE SHOULD CONTINUE DOING THOSE, ESPECIALLY THE DRIVE-INS.

UM, IF YOU WILL HAVE THE OPPORTUNITY TO GO TO ONE OF THOSE.

UM, THE DRIVE IN WAS SOMETHING UNIQUE.

UM, FOLKS PARKED AT THOMAS SCOTT PARK AND THEY WERE ABLE TO SIT EITHER IN THE GRASS OR IN THE PARKING LOT OR IN, OR IN THEIR TRUCKS AND WATCH SEVERAL MOVIES.

SO THAT WAS VERY SUCCESSFUL.

UM, THE MUSIC SERIES, UH, WAS ALSO VERY SUCCESSFUL.

UM, AND I'M NOT SURE IF YOU WILL.

UH, I KNOW A COUPLE OF YOU WON'T WENT TO THE MUSIC SERIES THIS YEAR, CAUSE I SAW YOU THERE.

UM, THERE WERE SOME, THERE WERE SOME REALLY GOOD BANDS THERE.

UM, THERE WAS ONE DAY IN THAT ACTUALLY PLAYED DURING THE FARMER'S MARKET ONE YEAR.

UH, IT WAS NOT ONE YEAR, UM, DURING ONE YOUR MATES.

AND THAT WAS, UH, WE KNOW THAT WAS A VERY POPULAR ONE THERE WE ACTUALLY HAD LIMBERS STAY.

UM, SO I WOULD DEFINITELY SAY THE MOVIE NIGHTS AND THE MUSIC SERIES ARE THINGS THAT WE SHOULD CONTINUE SUPPORTING FROM THE PARK RECREATION PERSPECTIVE.

UM, AND THEN ONE OF THE IDEAS I HAD WAS TRYING TO FIGURE OUT AND HOW WE CAN WORK WITH THE Y TO HELP PROMOTE FITNESS AND WELLNESS WITHIN THE PARTS.

SO, UM, I'M WANTING TO SIT DOWN WITH CHRIS.

UH, THEY HAVE A PROGRAM, I THINK, IS IT CALLED MOVE, CHRIS? THE, UH, I THINK IT'S CALLED MOVE, MOVE TO LOSE YOU'LL YES.

MOVE TO LOSE.

SO SORT OF PARTNERING WITH YOU ON THAT TO HELP PROMOTE THAT.

AND YOU CAN GET FOLKS OUT INTO THE PARTS AND THEN FINDING VOLUNTEER ORGANIZATIONS AS WELL, WHO, UH, OR GROUPS WHO CURRENTLY OFFER, UM, OPPORTUNITIES FOR FOLKS TO COME OUT AND JOIN THEIR GROUP AND WORK OUT IN THE PARK.

I KNOW, UH, VIA FACEBOOK, I SAW A COUPLE OF THOSE GROUPS THERE.

UM, I KNOW THAT, UM, WHEN I WAS VOLUNTEERING AT A FARMER'S MARKET, THERE WAS A GROUP FROM THE Y UM, THEY WOULD HAVE A CLASS AWAY AT THE AMPHITHEATER.

UM, SO JUST ENCOURAGING OUR FOLKS TO USE THE PARTS, MORE, TALK ABOUT IT, SHOWCASE, YOU KNOW, SOME OF THE DIFFERENT AMENITIES THAT WE HAVE AND IT'S GETTING PEOPLE OUT INTO THE PART.

SO, UM, AND THEN ALSO THE TENNIS CAMP WAS VERY SUCCESSFUL.

SO HOPEFULLY WE CAN GET, WE CAN CONTINUE THAT.

AND THEN, UM, I'M NOT SURE HOW WE, IF THIS IS EVEN POSSIBLE, BUT PERHAPS, UM, DOING SOMETHING LIKE A BASKETBALL TOURNAMENT, I'M NOT SURE EXACTLY HOW IT BE.

WE WOULD BE ABLE TO DO THAT, BUT EITHER A TOURNAMENT OR A CAMP OF SOME SORT.

SO, UM, YOU KNOW, ESPECIALLY WITH COVID RESTRICTIONS, WE MAY BE LIMITED, BUT, UM, BUT IF WE'RE ABLE TO DO THAT, I THINK THAT WILL BE SOMETHING NEW, DIFFERENT.

AND THEN, LIKE YOU HAD MENTIONED SOMETHING THAT WAS VERY INTERESTING, UM, UM, CAMPING, UM, THAT YOU HAD MENTIONED THAT, UH, YOU HAD WENT TO, I THINK THE CITY OF STELLE STYLE AND YOU WANT A CAMPING TRIP OVER THERE AND YOU STILL WANT TO, CAN YOU TALK A LITTLE BIT ABOUT THAT AS WELL? YEAH, SO I WENT CAMPING UP NEAR BETWEEN CLEVELAND AND AKRON, UH, IN OCTOBER.

AND, UH, WHEN I WAS LOOKING FOR A CAMPGROUND, THERE'S ACTUALLY A CAMPGROUND THAT IS OWNED BY THE CITY OF STO THAT THEY, THAT THE CITY RUNS.

UM, I THINK IT'S GOT PROBABLY 40 CAMP CAMPSITES.

UH, IT'S JUST LIKE RIGHT IN THE MIDDLE OF THE CITY.

UM, AND I THOUGHT THAT MIGHT BE SOMETHING INTERESTING, UH, THAT THAT COULD POTENTIALLY BE LOOKED AT TO BRING TO HEBREW HEIGHTS, UM, BECAUSE I WOULDN'T HAVE NORMALLY GONE TO STO IF IT WEREN'T FOR THEM HAVING A, YOU KNOW, ACCESSIBLE CAMPGROUND, UH, WITHIN THE CITY.

SO THAT MIGHT BE AN OPPORTUNITY FOR PEOPLE TO, UM, YOU KNOW, VISIT DEBORAH HEIGHTS.

UM, YOU KNOW, IT'S, IT'S PRETTY GOOD LOCATION BETWEEN 70 AND 75,

[00:20:01]

UH, YOU KNOW, SOMETHING TO OFFER 10 CAMPERS AS WELL AS LIKE, UH, RVS FOR PEOPLE TRAVELING.

UM, AND I HAD SOME THOUGHTS ABOUT WHERE, YOU KNOW, COULD POTENTIALLY GO, UM, EITHER WE COULD, WE COULD DO SOME IN CONJUNCTION WITH THE ROSE MUSIC CENTER, UM, OR IF CARRIAGE HILL WAS, UM, UH, RECEPTIVE TO, YOU KNOW, PUTTING THE CAMPGROUND, IF IT WAS, UM, YOU KNOW, ASSISTED BY THE CITY, THAT KIND OF THING.

UM, AND YOU KNOW, THEY'D JUST BE A, A GOOD WAY TO GET PEOPLE TO VISIT YOUR BRIDES AS WELL AS, UM, ANOTHER OUTDOOR OPPORTUNITY FOR PEOPLE WHO LIVE IN THE BRIGHTS.

CAUSE THERE'S REALLY NOT, UM, A HUGE AMOUNT OF CAMPING OPPORTUNITIES, YOU KNOW, WITHIN THERE'S FEW WITHIN THE, YOU KNOW, I AN HOUR RADIUS OF, UH, OF DAYTON, BUT THERE'S REALLY, UH, IT'S KINDA HARD TO GET CAMPSITES, UM, JUST BECAUSE THERE'S NOT THAT MANY OPPORTUNITIES.

SO IT WAS JUST AN IDEA I HAD, I THAT'D BE KIND OF NEAT.

PERFECT.

THANK YOU.

OKAY.

AND THEN OF COURSE I STILL HAVE THE, UM, THE EDUCATION, THE NATURE EDUCATION LEARNING THAT WE WERE TALKING ABOUT WITH GLENN, UH, EARLIER IN THE YEAR ON THE LIST AS WELL.

I THINK THERE WILL PROBABLY BE A WAY THAT WE CAN CONTINUE TO KEEP THAT SOCIAL DISTANCING THERE.

SO I GUESS, UM, MY FIRST QUESTION IS, ARE THERE ANY QUESTIONS ON ANY OF THOSE TOPICS OF PROGRAMS THAT I SORT OF MENTIONED? DO YOU GUYS KNOW ANY ISSUES OR CONCERNS THAT ARE IMMEDIATELY THAT YOU HAVE IMMEDIATELY ON THAT WITH THE CAMPING THING? IS THERE A WAY WE COULD DO THAT? LIKE WE COULD JUST DO LIKE A ONE DAY TO TRY IT OUT.

LIKE WE CAN TAKE ONE OF THE PARKS AND MAYBE DO LIKE A CAMP NIGHT IN THE PARK, OR MAYBE WE DO IT WITH ONE OF THE MOVIE NIGHTS OR SOMETHING AND WE CAN PUT SOME TENTS UP.

OKAY.

I MEAN, IS IT SOMETHING WE CAN LIKE TEST, I GUESS TO SEE IF IT, IF HOW WELL IT GOES.

OKAY.

ALL RIGHT.

I'LL ADD THAT ON THERE.

OKAY.

I WAS ON THAT AS BASKETBALL TERM.

YOU TALKED ABOUT HOW YOU LIKE TO SEE A BASKETBALL TOURNAMENT.

THERE WAS AN ORGANIZATION TWO, THREE YEARS AGO CALLED JIM CITY SLAM.

IT'S LIKE A, LIKE A MINOR IN THE SEMI-PRO REALLY SEMI SEMI-PRO BASKETBALL LEAGUE IN THIS AREA.

I DON'T KNOW IF THE ORGANIZATION IS STILL AROUND, THEY'RE STILL ACTIVE, SOMEWHAT ACTIVE ON FACEBOOK.

SO I COULD PROBABLY REACH OUT TO THEM AGAIN BECAUSE THEY'RE STARTING TO DO LIKE A THREE, THREE BASKETBALL TOURNAMENT, THAT CLOUD.

OKAY.

AND CHRIS, DO YOU ALL DO DO A BASKETBALL TOURNAMENT AT ALL? NO, WE DO RUN A SUMMER BASKETBALL CAMP.

OKAY.

AND THEN THAT'S WHEN WE HAVE THE WHY.

RIGHT CHRIS? SO ACTUALLY IF IT'S NICE OUT, WE PLAY A CLOUD.

OKAY.

AND THEN, UM, IF WE HAVE RAIN ACTUALLY GET INTO THE SCHOOLS.

OKAY.

CHRIS G YOU HAD CHRIS HALL, SORRY.

BASKETBALL LEAGUE HERE IN THE AREA TOO.

SO THAT'S SOMETHING WE COULD PROBABLY HELP OUT WITH.

OKAY.

PERFECT.

ALL RIGHT.

ARE THERE ANY OTHER QUESTIONS OR COMMENTS? OKAY.

SO WHAT I WILL DO THEN I WILL CLEAN THIS UP AND HAVE THIS OUT TO YOU ALL THIS WEEKEND, JUST FOR YOU TO LOOK AT, AND THEN WE CAN DISCUSS FURTHER IN JANUARY.

UM, OKAY.

SO WE'LL GO AHEAD AND MOVE ON TO THE NEXT TOPIC.

UM, INTERVIEW WITH CITY COUNCIL MEMO, CHRIS, I KNOW CHRIS HALL AND THERE YOU DON'T HAVE IT.

SO, UM, I WILL SEND YOU A COPY OF THAT DRAFT MEMO, UM, TONIGHT.

UM, BUT, UM, HAS EVERYONE HAD THE OPPORTUNITY TO REVIEW THAT MEMO OTHER THAN CHRIS HALL? OKAY.

SO IF EVERYONE IS, ARE THERE ANY QUESTIONS OR COMMENTS OR CHANGES OR ANY FEEDBACK THAT YOU MIGHT HAVE? I'LL START WITH BRIAN.

OKAY.

ALEX? UH, NO COMMENTS HERE, JAY.

NOTHING TO ADD UP.

BLAKE, NO COMMENTS.

OKAY, DENNIS.

YEAH, THAT'S GOOD.

CHRIS? UH, G WE'RE GOOD.

AND GLEN, THAT'S GOOD.

I LIKED IT.

RON LOOKS GOOD.

OKAY.

AND CHRIS, I WILL

[00:25:01]

HAVE TO GET YOUR EMAIL ADDRESS.

UM, DON'T SAY IT OVER THIS, BUT I'LL GET YOUR EMAIL ADDRESS FROM CHRIS LINDEMANN AND, UH, AND THEN I'LL SEND YOU A COPY BEFORE I SEND IT OFF ON MONDAY.

OKAY.

OKAY.

SO, UH, THE NEXT ITEM ON THE LIST IS DISCUSSION WITH BOARD CHAIRS.

SO AS YOU ALL KNOW, UM, LAST, THIS YEAR, EARLY THIS YEAR, I STARTED MEETING WITH, UM, THE ARTS AND BEAUTIFICATION.

UM, THE FIRST INITIAL ART TO BEAUTIFICATION CHAIR, WE STARTED JUST TO SHARE INFORMATION WELL, WHAT'S GOING ON ON EACH BOARD.

THE INTENT WAS, IS TO ONE, SHARE INFORMATION, FIGURE OUT WHAT WHAT'S GOING ON AND TO FIND OUT HOW WE CAN BETTER SUPPORT EACH OTHER.

SO FOR, UM, WELL, SINCE I AM THE CHAIR FOR NEXT YEAR, WHAT I WOULD LIKE TO DO IS CONTINUE TO, UM, INCREASE THAT MOMENTUM AND HAVE THE CONVERSATIONS, CONTINUE, THOSE CONVERSATIONS WITH THE, UM, ARTS AND BEAUTIFICATION CHAIR.

AND THEN ALSO BRING IN, UM, UH, TO THE OTHER BOARDS IS, UH, BOARDS OR COMMISSIONS, UH, SPECIFICALLY THE MILITARY COMMISSION, AS WELL AS THE DIVERSITY COMMISSION AS WELL.

UM, AND THE ATTENDANCE TO FIGURE OUT HOW WE CAN BETTER SUPPORT EACH OTHER, UM, WHETHER IT'S, YOU KNOW, ADDING ADDITIONAL AMENITIES INTO THANKS, CURRENTS, ADDING THE ADDITION THAT MANY NEEDS INTO THE PARK TO HELP SUPPORT THEIR PROGRAMMING, UM, VOLUNTEER OPPORTUNITIES, ET CETERA.

SO, UM, ARE THERE ANY ISSUES WITH ME DOING THAT? NO.

OKAY.

AND AS USUAL, WE'LL CONTINUE TO PROVIDE FEEDBACK TO YOU ALL.

SO, UM, ON THAT, SO, UM, GO AHEAD AND MOVE ON TO THE NEXT ITEM ADOPT PARK.

UM, I THINK I TALKED ABOUT THAT BRIEFLY.

UM, THE CITY USED TO HAVE A PROGRAM OR THEY MAY STILL HAVE IT.

THAT'S CALLED, UM, IT'S ADAPTIVE PARK WHERE VOLUNTEER ORGANIZATIONS CAN ACTUALLY, UM, HELP, UM, SUPPORT THE SPECIFIC PART, YOU KNOW, WITH CLEANUPS AND SOME OTHER STUFF.

WHAT I WOULD LIKE FOR US TO DO IS ACTUALLY LEAN FORWARD AND TRY AND FIND ORGANIZATIONS TO HELP DO THAT, CONTINUE THAT EFFORT AS WELL.

UM, AND THEN WE'RE ALSO LIKE TO WORK WITH OUR TWO BEAUTIFICATION BOARD FOR SPECIFICALLY FOR, UM, THINGS LIKE, UM, BEAUTIFICATION OF THE PARK.

UM, AND I'M TARGETING THINGS LIKE, UM, THE FRONT SIGN SIGNAGE IN ALL THAT.

SO, UM, IF YOU ALL, SO ARE THERE ANY QUESTIONS OR COMMENTS ABOUT RE DOING, UH, REINSTITUTING, THE ADOPTIVE PARK PROGRAM THAT WOULD INCLUDE REDOING THE FLYER? I BELIEVE AS WELL.

OKAY.

IS IT FOR LIKE A YEAR, LIKE WHEN THESE PEOPLE ARE IN THESE BUSINESSES ABOUT THE PARK, IS IT FOR THE YEAR? IS IT FOR A LONG PERIOD OF TIME? UM, IT COULD BE FOR A YEAR, UM, OR AS LONG AS THEY WANT.

I THINK, UM, I THINK THE MINIMUM THAT I WOULD LIKE FOR FOLKS TO DO IS A YEAR, UM, BECAUSE I THINK YOU'LL GET SOME COMMITMENT ON THAT.

UM, IN PLACES LIKE CLOUD PARK, I THINK WE CAN PROBABLY HAVE MULTIPLE ORGANIZATIONS SUPPORT THAT.

RON YOU'RE ON MUTE.

SORRY, I'M JUST TURNING UP MY MICROPHONE HERE.

MY, MY FURNACE JUST KICKED ON.

I COULDN'T HEAR.

OKAY.

ALL RIGHT.

SO THAT'S, IS THAT SOMETHING WE WOULD HAVE, LIKE A, UM, LIKE I KNOW FOR ADOPTED HIGHWAYS, THEY HAVE LIKE A SIGN THAT SAYS ADOPTED BY THIS ORGANIZATION.

IS THAT SOMETHING WE WOULD DO FOR THE PARKS? ALSO? I THINK THAT'S SOMETHING THAT IS VIABLE, SOMETHING THAT WE CAN DEFINITELY DO.

UM, I THINK IF ORGANIZATIONS ARE WILLING TO COMMIT TO ADOPT THIS SPECIFIC PART, I THINK WE CAN WORK WITH THE CITY TO HAVE SIGNS MADE FOR THAT.

AND OF COURSE, YOU KNOW, IT WOULD BE, YOU KNOW, THEM, YOU KNOW, CLEAN UPS AND SOME OTHER TYPE OF THINGS THAT WE NEED TO HAVE DONE AT THE PARKS AS WELL.

OKAY.

SO, UM, WHAT I WILL DO THE MOTION ON THE FLOOR RIGHT NOW IS TO REINSTITUTE THE ADOPTER PARK PROGRAM.

GLEN, DID YOU HAVE A QUESTION I'M DOING GOOD.

I'M SO EMOTIONAL IS TO RECONSTITUTE THERE'S.

UH, DO WE, RE-INSTITUTE THE, UH, ADOPTIVE PA PROGRAM? UM, SO IS THERE A FIRST, OKAY, SO I HAVE A FIRST AND A SECOND, BRIAN AND GLEN.
