UH, LET'S START WITH THE PRACTICE MANAGER UPDATE AND JOSH, IF YOU CAN INCLUDE NUMBER THREE AND FOUR AND YOUR WORDS AS WELL.

ALL RIGHT, GOOD EVENING, EVERYONE.

UM, SO YEAH, IT HAS BEEN SAID, UM, THERE'S A FEW DIFFERENT THINGS TO KIND OF UPDATE EVERYBODY ON.

UM, YOU KNOW, WE HAVE THE OUT MANITA FIELD OF THOSE REQUESTED THAT WE, UH, GET SOME PRICING TOGETHER AND LOOK AT POSSIBLY DOING, UH, SOME, A SKATE PARK AND A BMX TRACK OUT THERE.

AND, UH, SO WE'VE GOTTEN SOME PRICING ON THAT AND I'M GETTING WITH THE COMPANY TO KIND OF SEE, GIVE US A BREAKDOWN OF DIFFERENT MODELS FOR THAT.

SO WE KIND OF HAVE A COST OF HOW BIG, HOW SMALL WE WANT TO GO, UM, ON THAT PROJECT.

AND, UH, ONCE, YOU KNOW, THINGS ARE READY TO MOVE FORWARD, WE'LL, UH, YOU KNOW, PRESENT THAT BACK TO THE BOARD, YOU KNOW, COUNCIL AND ALL THAT.

UM, ALSO THE, UH, BMX PARK, I'M ASSUMING AS THE MOUNTAIN BIKE TRAILS EVENTS.

YES.

YEAH.

SO, UH, I DRAFTED UP A, A USER AGREEMENT KIND OF MORE LIKE, ALMOST LIKE AN ADOPTIVE PARK TYPE DOCUMENT, UM, WITH THE MIAMI VALLEY MOUNTAIN BIKE ASSOCIATION, UH, THEY ARE INTERESTED IN COMING IN AND STARTING TO DO SOME CORRIDOR CLEARING OUT THERE.

UH, WINTER TIME IS A GOOD TIME FOR THEM TO DO THAT WHILE THE HONEYSUCKLE IS DORMANT, THEY CAN KIND OF RIP IT UP, ERADICATE IT.

UM, BUT THEN THAT AGREEMENT WILL ALSO ALLOW FOR ONCE WE ARE ABLE TO PUT THE TRAILS IN, THEY WILL CONTINUE TO MAINTAIN THOSE TRAILS ON A MONTHLY BASIS.

UM, AND IT ALLOWS THEM TO DO WHAT THEY NEED TO DO AS FAR AS BRINGING GROUPS IN AND NOT HAVING TO, UM, YOU KNOW, GET PERMISSION EVERY TIME THEY'LL, YOU KNOW, THEY'LL KIND OF LAY OUT A PLAN FOR US.

UM, SO I'M GOING TO MEET WITH THEM EARLY NEXT WEEK TO GO OVER THE AGREEMENT WITH THEM AND KIND OF FINALIZE THINGS AND SEE ANY OBJECTIONS THEY MAY HAVE TO WHAT WE DRAFTED UP AND GO FROM THERE.

I'LL LET YOU GUYS KNOW ALL WHAT'S

[00:05:01]

FINALIZED WITH THAT.

UM, AS FAR AS ANYTHING ELSE, UM, PLANNING IN THE SUMMER EVENTS, UH, WE ALREADY HAVE ONE CONCERT BOOKED, UH, FOR THE SEASON AND I'VE GOT A FEW OTHER BANDS I'VE REACHED OUT TO LIST OF, OR I NEED TO REACH OUT TO, UH, WE HAVE SOME DATES AT 40, UH, MOVIE NIGHTS AND, UH, WE'RE GOING TO PUT TOGETHER A LIST OF MOVIES AND WE'LL HAVE YOU GUYS PICK A COUPLE FROM THAT THIS, UH, ARTHUR BEAUTIFICATION IS GOING TO PICK A COUPLE OR PICK THREE AND I'LL HAVE YOU GUYS PICK TWO.

UM, BOTH OF OURS WILL BE A DRIVE IN FORMAT LIKE THEY WERE PAST YEAR.

THOSE SEEM TO BE A BIG SUCCESS.

UH, WE'LL ENJOY THAT FORMAT AND WE'LL STILL HAVE TWO DOWN AT CLOUD TWO.

WHAT EICHELBERGER ONE AT THE, UH, EMPATHY, UH, AT THE PROOFS OF THE SEASON.

ARE THERE ANY QUESTIONS FROM ANYONE ON THE ALL RIGHT.

ANY, BUT WE'RE GETTING ON TEAMS. YOU'RE MUTED, ALEX, NO COMMENT.

ALL RIGHT.

OKAY.

SO JOSH REAL QUICK, UM, REFERENCING THE DOW PARK LONGFORD, UM, AREA, THE DOW LONGFORD AREA.

UM, WHEN SHOULD WE START LOOKING AT MAIMING THAT, UM, THAT, THAT PART, UM, THAT I DON'T KNOW, WE CAN, WE CAN DISCUSS THAT, UH, FURTHER AND KIND OF SEE HOW WE WANT TO DO IT RIGHT NOW.

WE'RE STILL WAITING ON THE GRANT TO EVEN, UH, COME THROUGH FROM THE STATE.

I KNOW IT WAS FUN LAST YEAR AND NOTHING HAS BEEN ANNOUNCED FOR THIS YEAR ON HOW THEY'RE GOING TO PROCEED WITH THAT.

UM, BUT IF THAT'S SOMETHING WE WANT TO GO AHEAD AND START THE PROCESS ON, I'M SURE WE CAN, UM, AND, UH, SEE WHAT, YOU KNOW, WHAT WE COME UP WITH.

I THINK ANYTHING WE GO WITH SHOULD KIND OF PLAY INTO WHAT IT'S HOPEFULLY GOING TO BE.

UM, YOU KNOW, I HAVE SOME IDEAS OF WHAT I THINK IT SHOULD BE, BUT I'LL WAIT UNTIL WE, UH, YOU KNOW, FURTHER THAT DISCUSSION LATER ON.

OKAY.

OKAY.

ALL RIGHT.

UH, SO NOW WE'LL DO WITH THE YMCA AT THE HEIGHTS UPDATE.

GOOD EVENING, EVERYONE.

UM, COUPLE THINGS FROM US, UH, AT THE Y UM, WE HAVE, UH, SHELTER RENTALS OPEN, UH, FOR THE 20, 21 SEASON.

UM, WE HAVE A HANDFUL THAT HAVE ALREADY BEEN BOOKED FOR THE SUMMER.

UM, I'VE STARTED TO GET SOME, UH, INTEREST FROM USER GROUPS FOR, UH, CLOUD PARK.

UM, UH, CAROL HIGH SCHOOL WILL BE BACK, UH, WITH THEIR TENNIS TEAMS IN THE SPRING AND THE FALL, UH, RECEIVED THAT RESERVATION, UH, YESTERDAY.

UM, SOFTBALL HAS REACHED OUT, UM, THEY DID THE USER AGREEMENT LAST YEAR.

UM, SO WE'LL GET THAT, UH, MOVING FORWARD.

UM, AND JOSH, IF YOU COULD HELP ME, WHAT WAS THE NAME OF THE OTHER HIGH SCHOOL? THAT'S GOING TO HAVE SOME TENNIS TOURNAMENTS THIS SPRING.

IT WASN'T NECESSARILY A HIGH SCHOOL, BUT IT WAS KIND OF BEING FILTERED THROUGH, UM, TWIN VALLEY, MAYBE.

I DON'T REMEMBER WHAT, WHAT SCHOOL THEY WERE FILTERING IT THROUGH, BUT IT WAS ANOTHER KIND OF, ALMOST LIKE THE SWB L GROUP.

YEAH.

SO THEY'VE, THEY'VE REACHED OUT TO JOSH AND I, UM, I'VE SENT THE PAPERWORK TO THE INDIVIDUAL.

UM, HE'S SUPPOSED TO BE GETTING BACK, BUT THAT WOULD BE A PAID, UH, TOURNAMENT USAGE ON THE DAYS THAT THEY'RE LOOKING FOR, WHICH ARE MAINLY SATURDAYS.

UM, SO STILL WAITING ON ANYTHING FROM, UH, BASEBALL, UM, SOCCER, UH, FOOTBALL.

UM, SO AS WE MOVE FORWARD AND, UH, CLEVER OHIO IS GOING TO BE USING CLOUD PARK AS WELL IN THE SPRING AND THE FALL.

UM, LIKE THEY DID THIS PAST FALL, SO A USER GROUPS ARE MOVING.

UM, WE'LL START GETTING THEM RESERVED OUT AND EVERYTHING TAKEN CARE OF, UM, AS FOR THE AQUATIC CENTER.

UM, I MET WITH MY TEAM LAST WEEK TO START PLANNING.

UH, I HAVE FOLLOWED UP WITH AN EMAIL TO, UM, MR. SCHOMER ABOUT SOME OF THE, UH, POTENTIAL CHALLENGES THAT WE COULD FACE THIS SUMMER, JUST DEPENDING ON, UH, DEPARTMENT OF HEALTH WITH COVID PROTOCOLS COME SUMMERTIME.

UM, SO WE'RE WORKING THROUGH THAT IN AN EARLY, UH, WAY FOR US.

SO WE'LL HAVE TWO DIFFERENT PLANS, ONE THAT IS PRE COVID, UH, OPERATIONS, AND ONE THAT IS A MODIFIED COVID

[00:10:01]

OPERATION MOST LIKELY FROM LAST YEAR IS THE ROUTE THAT WE'LL GO, BUT WE'VE ALREADY STARTED THE PLANNING PROCESS, UH, FOR US TO RECRUIT STAFF, TRAINED STAFF AND HAVE EVERYTHING READY TO OPEN, UH, UM, UH, ON MEMORIAL DAY, WHICH, UH, WEEKEND, WHICH I BELIEVE IS THE 29TH OF MAY THIS YEAR.

OKAY.

ANY QUESTIONS FROM THE DATES FROM A BUDGET, A BUDGET STANDPOINT FOR RENTAL THAT WOULD COME IN MORE TENNIS COURTS, IS THAT ARE THOSE FUNDS SET ASIDE FOR MAINTENANCE AND THAT .

SO, UM, I COULDN'T ANSWER THAT QUESTION SPECIFICALLY, RON, BECAUSE AS WE TAKE THE FUNDS IN, AT THE I, UM, AT THE END OF THE YEAR, UM, I SEND, UH, TWO CHECKS TO THE CITY, ONE FOR SHELTER RENTALS AND ONE FOR THE USER GROUPS.

SO THAT WOULD PROBABLY BE MORE OF A QUESTION FOR JOSH TO, TO RESEARCH HOW, UH, THE FINANCE DEPARTMENT, UH, UTILIZES THOSE FUNDS.

BUT, UM, THAT'S, THAT'S HOW IT'S HANDLED ON MY END, IS THAT FOR ALL THE BASEBALL AND SOFTBALL, SOCCER, SAME THING.

YEAH.

IT'S STILL, I SEND, UM, A LIST OF WHAT EACH USER GROUP PAID, UM, TO THE FINANCE DEPARTMENT AT THE END OF THE YEAR, SO THAT THEY KNOW FOR AUDITING PURPOSES, WHAT HAS BEEN BROUGHT IN YEAH.

THAT GETS APPLIED TO THE GENERAL FUND.

SO I GUESS WITH THAT QUESTION, JOSH, IS THERE A WAY TO, AND I DON'T KNOW FOR SURE.

I'M JUST THINKING OUT LOUD HERE, IS THERE A WAY TO TAKE SOME OF THOSE FUNDS AND REDIRECT THEM SPECIFICALLY IN TARGETED SPECIFICALLY FOR MAINTENANCE FOR THE MIXED YEAR OR PGRS OR ANYTHING LIKE THAT? UH, THAT I WOULD HAVE TO ASK ABOUT, THANK YOU.

ANY QUESTIONS? NO QUESTIONS ON THE BIAS, ANYONE ON TEAMS? OKAY.

GO AHEAD TO THE MESSAGE AND THE ITEM HERE, NEW BUSINESS, HUBER HEIGHTS, COMMUNITY CENTER, JOHN.

OKAY.

UM, I'M NOT SURE HOW MANY OF YOU WERE TUNED IN OR HEARD AT THE COUNCIL A WORK SESSION ON TUESDAY.

UM, BUT I, UH, ROB AND I INTRODUCED THE IDEA OF THE, UH, HUBER HEIGHTS COMMUNITY CENTER, UM, OUT ON, UH, OLD POWELL ROAD.

WE HAVE THE OLD CAMPFIRE USA BUILDING IT'S BEEN SITTING EMPTY FOR A WHILE.

UM, THERE WAS, YOU KNOW, TALKS, I BELIEVE LAST YEAR OR THE END OF 19 OF, UH, OF AN ORGANIZATION GOING IN THERE AND THAT KIND OF FELL THROUGH.

UM, SO IT'S JUST BEEN CONTINUED TO SIT EMPTY.

UM, PROBABLY ABOUT AUGUST OR SEPTEMBER.

ONE OF THE GIRL SCOUT TROOPS HAD REACHED OUT THAT THEY HAD, THEY HAD NOWHERE TO MEET AT SCHOOLS AND SEARCHES WERE NOT LETTING THEM BACK IN.

AND, UH, AND THEN ONCE THE WEATHER GOT COLD, THEY DIDN'T KNOW WHERE THEY WERE GOING TO GO.

UM, SO I KIND OF LOOKED TO THAT BUILDING TO SEE IF IT WAS A USABLE SPACE AND WE MADE IT WORK FOR THEM.

AND THEY'VE BEEN MEETING THERE ONCE OR TWICE A MONTH SINCE OCTOBER.

UM, SINCE THAT TIME WE REPLACED FLOORING IN THE, IN THE MAJORITY OF THE BUILDING, UM, HAD, UH, LIGHTS UPDATED ON ONE SIDE OF THE BUILDING, ALL TO LED WHERE MOST OF THEM WERE BURNED OUT.

ALL THE EXTERIOR LIGHTS HAVE BEEN UPDATED TO LTTE, THERE'S NO PARKING LOT LIGHTS.

WE ADDED SOME SPOTLIGHTS TO THE BUILDING.

UM, THE BUILDING SET UP, UH, IN A REALLY GOOD WAY THERE ONE ROOM ON THE SIDE THAT I GUESS YOU COULD CALL IT GYMNASIUM.

UM, IT'S GOT A METAL MESH OVER THE WINDOWS.

IT'S GOT VERY HIGH CEILINGS.

I THINK AT ONE TIME THERE WAS A BASKETBALL HOOP ON THE WALL.

UM, THAT ROOMS ABOUT, UH, I THINK IT'S ABOUT 30 BY 60, UM, TWO BATHROOMS MEN'S AND WOMEN'S, UH, THERE'S A KITCHEN IN THE BACK.

THAT'S JUST CABINETS AND A SINK.

AND THEN THERE'S ANOTHER LARGE MEETING ROOM OFF TO THE OTHER SIDE.

THAT'S ABOUT 30 BY 60 AS WELL.

UM, WE ARE GOING TO ACTIVATE THE BUILDING FOR RENTAL USAGE.

HOPEFULLY IT WORKS FIRST.

UM, ARTS AND BEAUTIFICATION IS DOING A, UH, ART SHOW THERE, LIKE ART EXHIBIT.

ALTHOUGH THE LAST WEEKEND IN FEBRUARY, WE'RE GOING TO KIND OF USE EVENT AS OUR KICKOFF TO ANNOUNCE THAT THE SPACE IS RENTABLE.

AND WE'RE GOING TO TRY TO, WE GOT WORKING ON THE CALENDAR TO WHERE

[00:15:01]

PEOPLE CAN GO IN AND SEE WHAT DATES ARE OPEN AND BE ABLE TO SELECT THEIR DATE, PAY ONLINE FOR THAT.

UM, IT WILL BE USABLE FOR THINGS SUCH AS BIRTHDAY PARTIES, MEETINGS, UM, I MEAN REALLY OTHER, OTHER THAN, YOU KNOW, FOR PROFIT EVENTS, IT'S REALLY KIND OF LIMITLESS WHAT WE CAN DO THERE.

UH, I KNOW IN THE PAST WE'VE TALKED ABOUT PHOTOGRAPHY CLASSES OR THINGS OF THE SUCH FOR PEOPLE.

THAT'S A GREAT PLACE TO DO IT AT, UM, YOU KNOW, WE'VE GOT TABLES AND CHAIRS THERE, SO WE CAN SET UP TO WHERE IF WE HAD ENOUGH PLAN OF THE PARK AND THE WEATHER BECAME IMPLEMENT, WE COULD MOVE THERE.

UM, YOU KNOW, ARE PAINTING THINGS WHERE THE PEOPLE SHOW UP AND, YOU KNOW, HAVE YOUR COUPLES NIGHT WHERE YOU GO AND PAINT YOUR CANVAS STUFF.

IT'S LIKE I SAID, THE, THE OUT THE, UH, IT'S JUST LIMITLESS, WHAT WE CAN GET DONE THERE, I THINK, AND I THINK IT WILL BE A GREAT ASSET TO THE PARKS AND TO THE COMMUNITY TO HAVE A PLACE LIKE THAT YOU CAN USE AND RENT OUT THINGS THAT THEY WOULD NEED.

UM, THE PROPERTY ITSELF IS NINE ACRES AND A LARGE PORTION OF THE BACK IS JUST OPEN FIELD WITH TREES.

UM, SCOUT TROOPS ARE EXPRESSED INTEREST ABOUT HOLDING THEIR SPRING OUTS THERE.

AND, UM, YOU KNOW, THE PLAYGROUND EQUIPMENT THAT'S BEHIND THE BUILDING IS ALL OLD, OUTDATED AND DID NOT PASS INSPECTION, SO IT WILL BE REMOVED.

UH, BUT WE DO HAVE A CLIMBING STRUCTURE OFF TO THE SIDE BY THE SHELTER HOUSE AND IS STILL GOOD.

UM, AND, AND, YOU KNOW, LOOKING INTO THE FUTURE, MAYBE ADDING A, TO THAT DEGREE OVER THERE, A PLAYGROUND OF SOME SORT.

UM, BUT, UH, AS FAR AS, YOU KNOW, PARK ACTIVITIES, PRETTY MUCH ANYTHING YOU GUYS CAN THINK OF, WE COULD PROBABLY MAKE IT HAPPEN THERE.

YEAH.

SO WHAT I WOULD SAY IS IF YOU ALL HADN'T SEEN IT, UM, WE WILL ALMOST SCHEDULE A DATE, BUT YOU ALL TO AT LEAST GO OUT AND LOOK AT IT.

YOU CAN GO OUT AND LOOK AT THE OUTSIDE IN RIGHT NOW, BUT THE INSIDE IS, UM, I MEAN, I WOULD SAY THE WHOLE ENTIRE PROPERTY IS PRETTY AMAZING WHEN I WENT AND LOOKED AT IT, I WAS IN SHOCKED AND SO MANY IDEAS POPPED IN MY HEAD.

SO WHAT WE'LL DO IS I'LL WORK WITH JOSH TO SEE IF WE CAN SCHEDULE A DATE TO HAVE YOU ALL COME, COME AND DO A QUICK WALK THROUGH.

DO YOU KNOW WHERE THE, UH, FOP HALL IS? YEAH.

IF YOU GO DOWN TO OH TWO AND HEAD WEST IT'S, AS SOON AS YOU GET PAST THE APARTMENTS, IT'S THE FIRST BUILDING RIGHT PAST THE APARTMENTS, 43 OH ONE IS THE ADDRESS.

SO I'LL, I'LL WORK WITH JOHNSTON DOWNSTAIRS.

YOU GOT EVERYONE TO NOTE A COUPLE OF DAYS AND WE'LL MEET AND I'LL LET YOU GUYS COME OUT.

WALK IN.

OF COURSE, I'M YOUR SCHEDULES AFTERWARDS.

OKAY.

SO, UM, ANY QUESTIONS FOR JOSH ON THAT? AND THAT MIGHT BE DENNIS, UM, DENNIS, DENNIS, SORRY.

I'VE GOT A COMPUTER.

SO I GOT ON WITH MY PHONE.

NO, NO PROBLEM.

SO ANY QUESTIONS ON THE DIARY? OKAY.

ANY QUESTIONS ON TEAMS? OKAY, BLAKE, YOU'RE UP? UH, JOSH, WHAT KIND OF ACREAGE IS, UH, BEHIND THE BUILDING AS FAR AS LIKE WITH TREES AND EVERYTHING? DO YOU HAVE THAT NUMBER BY CHANCE? THE TOTAL PROPERTY, I BELIEVE IS AROUND EIGHT OR NINE ACRES.

UM, SO THE OPEN AREA BEHIND, IT WOULD PROBABLY BE MAYBE SIX OR SEVEN.

UM, IT'S PRETTY MUCH JUST AN ICE.

PERFECT RECTANGLE.

THE SECTION IN THE, BACK'S GOT A FEW WORDS, GROWTH TREES, AND THERE'S A COUPLE SMALL LITTLE POCKETS OF, OF LIKE HONEYSUCKLE HERE AND THERE, BUT FOR THE MOST PART, THE PROPERTY IS LARGE AND OPEN AND THERE IS ALSO A FULL COURT BASKETBALL COURT, UH, CONCRETE OR ASPHALT.

I'M NOT SURE WHICH ON THE PROPERTY AS WELL.

SO I WAS THINKING BACK TO, UH, THE TALK ABOUT PUTTING A CAMPGROUND.

UH, I WAS TRYING TO THINK OF PLACES WE COULD HAVE THE, I DON'T KNOW IF THAT, UM, I MIGHT BE A POTENTIAL OPTION FOR THAT IF, UH, IF WE'RE, WE STILL WANT TO CONTINUE TO LOOK FOR PLACES FOR THAT, BUT, UH, JUST A, A THOUGHT SUGGESTION.

YEAH.

I THINK ALLOWING GROUP CAMPING THERE MAYBE FOR LIKE A SCOUT TROOP AND STUFF WOULD BE OKAY, BUT I DON'T KNOW, AS FAR AS, YOU KNOW, CONVERTING IT TO AN ACTUAL CAMP GROUND FULL FULL-TIME.

I DON'T KNOW IF THAT WOULD BE THE BEST SPOT FOR THAT OR NOT SURE.

OKAY.

SO ANY OTHER

[00:20:01]

QUESTIONS ON THE TEAMS? OKAY.

ALL RIGHT.

THANKS JOSH.

OKAY.

SO WE'LL MOVE ON TO ITEM NUMBER TWO, 2021 PROJECTS, PROGRAMMING, ALL THAT FUN STUFF.

SO, UM, ITEMS THREE OR FOUR SORT OF COMBINED UNDERNEATH THAT.

SO, UM, DURING THE LAST MEETING SPECIFICALLY, UM, WE TALKED ABOUT SOME IDEAS OF WHAT WE WOULD LIKE TO TRY AND DO, OR, UM, TO THINK ABOUT OR 2021, JOSH WASN'T AT THAT MEETING.

SO, UM, I STILL NEED TO SIT DOWN AND TALK TO HIM JUST AS JUST TO GET A BETTER UNDERSTANDING ABOUT THE COLDER REQUIREMENTS AND ALL THAT.

SO, BUT JOSH CORRECTLY, IF I'M WRONG, BUT I THINK THE WAY FORWARD THAT WAY WE SHOULD TAKE IT THIS YEAR IS TO LOOK AT DOING PROGRAMS WITH COVID RESTRICTIONS IN PLACE.

AND THEN IF, UM, LET'S SAY THEIR LESSON OR THEY GO AWAY, THEN WE LOOK AT RAMPING THINGS UP IN ADJUSTING, LIKE, HOW DOES THAT SOUND? OKAY.

SO THINGS LIKE, TO ME, THINGS LIKE THE PARK CLEANUPS, I THINK THOSE ARE THINGS THAT WE CAN HAVE SOME POLAR RESTRICTIONS IN PLACE, BECAUSE THOSE ARE EASY TO TELL THEM, BUT IT'S SEPARATE, UM, THINGS LIKE, UM, UH, LET'S SEE THE MAJOR WALKS.

I'M NOT SURE ABOUT THE TENNIS CAMP AT ALL.

JOSH, YOU MIGHT BE ABLE TO HELP THEM WITH THAT.

I KNOW WE DID IT LAST YEAR WITH, WITH IT IN PLACE.

YEAH.

WE'RE, WE'RE GOING TO CONTINUE THAT THIS YEAR AS WELL.

OKAY.

UM, BROCK PAIN IS MOST LIKELY GOING TO BE OFF THE TABLE FOR US BECAUSE IT REQUIRES CERTAIN THINGS, BUT, UM, I THINK SIMPLE THINGS LIKE THAT.

AND THEN OF COURSE I HAVE ON THE LIST.

SO LIKE A FITNESS DAY IN THE PARK OR SOMETHING WHERE WE CAN PARTNER WITH THE Y UM, DOING SOME RESEARCH ON THE Y'S WEBSITE, THEY ALREADY HAVE A CERTAIN FITNESS AND HEALTH AND WELLNESS TYPE OF ACTIVITIES IN PLACE.

THERE ARE SOME MAYBE TRYING TO FIGURE OUT HOW WE CAN WORK WITH THE Y TO INCORPORATE SOME OF THAT OUT INTO THE PARTS AND GET SOME OF OUR OTHER FOLKS OUT INTO THE PARKS TO USE IT.

UM, AND ALSO PROMOTING THINGS LIKE, UM, UH, DID GET, UH, SOMEONE DID REACH OUT TO ME MAYBE LAST WEEK.

UM, AND SHE DOES YOGA, YOGA IN THE PARK, YOU KNOW, AND SHE DOES IT AT NO COST OR ANYTHING LIKE THAT.

SO PERHAPS WE ENCOURAGE FOLKS LIKE THAT, YOU KNOW, LET US KNOW WHAT YOU HAVE GOING ON SO WE CAN HELP, YOU KNOW, UM, NOT NECESSARILY PROMOTE IT, BUT MAKE PEOPLE AWARE THAT THESE TYPES OF ACTIVITIES GOING ON IN THE PARKS AND WERE MORE THAN WILLING TO, YOU CAN GO OUT AND JOIN THEM.

OKAY.

AS LONG AS THE SOCIAL DISTANCING WHEN EVERYTHING'S IN PLACE.

SO WHEN IT COMES TO ACTIVITIES OTHER THAN THE MUSIC SERIES, UM, YEAH, THE MUSIC SERIES, THE MOVIES, UM, TENNIS CAMP, UM, HOW DO YOU GUYS FEEL ABOUT DOING THE PIPE CLEANINGS? YOU KNOW, WE NORMALLY HAVE ONE AROUND LATE MARCH, EARLY APRIL, AND FOR HER BIRTHDAY, YOU KNOW, JUST TO HELP GET THE PARKS, YOU KNOW, READY FOR THE SEASON.

BUT THEN WE WERE ALSO TALKING ABOUT THE POTENTIAL, UM, UH, DOING SOMETHING LIKE, UM, ADOPT A PARK OR FIND NEW WAYS TO GET ROOMS, TO COME OUT AND CLEAN UP THE PARKS ONCE A MONTH.

AND I THINK THAT'S SOMETHING THAT BLAKE WAS INTERESTED IN, YOU KNOW, HELPING TO TAKE LEAD ON.

SO WHAT DO YOU GUYS THINK ABOUT DOING THINGS LIKE THAT? I THINK THAT DR.

PARK IS GOOD.

I THINK WE COULD, AT LEAST IF YOU CAN TAKE IT APART FOR MEMORY AND EACH TAKE APART AND CREATE A CAMARADERIE WITH PEOPLE THAT WANT TO WORK IN THAT PARK.

I THINK THAT CAMARADERIE, I KNOW, UH, I DO LIKE THE IDEA OF THE BIRTHDAY CLEAN UP, EVEN THOUGH MY, AT THAT TIME I SCHEDULED, SHE USUALLY PRETTY BUSY.

UH, THERE IS A PARK CLEANUP THAT USUALLY HAPPENS, UH, AFTER OUR START, SPEAKING OF HEIGHTS THAT USUALLY MY SCHEDULE ALLOWS ME TO DO, I KNOW THAT'S SOMETHING THAT LIKE RICHARD SHAW, BUT THEN OUT OF THIS GROUP IS, I DON'T KNOW IF YOU WANT TO MAYBE, YOU KNOW, PARTNER UP WITH THEM ALSO BECAUSE IT'S, YOU KNOW, LIKE I SAY, WORK THE EARTH DAY IS GETTING US PREPARED FOR THE SEASON.

AND THEN OF COURSE STARTS MAKING HIGHEST DEPENDING ON WHAT THE RESTRICTIONS ARE LIKE, YOU KNOW, THEN THAT PART GETS, IT'S PROBABLY THE BUSIEST DEPARTMENT I'VE READ THROUGHOUT THE WHOLE YEAR.

OKAY.

81 ON TEENS.

DOES THE CAT HAVE ANY COMMENTS? SORRY ABOUT

[00:25:01]

THAT.

UM, ALL RIGHT.

I THINK THAT WAS A GREAT IDEAS.

UM, JOSH I'LL GET WITH YOU AND IT SEEMS THAT SOMETHING WE CAN DO.

I KNOW THAT THE ARTS AND BEAUTIFICATION BOARD, AT ONE POINT, THEY WERE INTERESTED IN DOING THE FLOWER BEDS, HAVING LEAD ON THAT.

UM, AND I'M GAME FOR THAT, YOU KNOW, UM, WORKING AND TRYING TO GET PEOPLE TO IT'S ANOTHER FORM OF A DR.

PARK OR THEY'RE ADOPTING SPECIFIC FIRE BEDS.

THERE WERE, UM, WHEN I WAS AT, WHEN WE WERE AT SOME OF THE MUSIC FESTIVALS, I THINK IT WAS DUCKS.

THERE WAS, UH, AN INDIVIDUAL THAT WAS INTERESTED IN, YOU KNOW, GOING INTO ONE PARK AND TAKING CARE OF THAT FIRE AND IT GIVES THEM SOMETHING TO DO.

UM, SO I THINK IF WE WORKED WITH THEM AND SAID, OKAY, YOU WILL HAVE THE FLOWERBEDS AND WE'LL TAKE CARE OF EVERYTHING ELSE IN THE BACK ROW BEHIND IT, I GUESS THEN I THINK THAT WILL WORK.

UM, SO IF YOU ARE AMENABLE TO THAT, THEN I'LL TALK TO CINDY WHO IS THE CURRENT ARTS AND GET THE CASE ON THE COMMISSION CHAIR AND LET HER KNOW THAT WE HAVE THE GREEN LINE IN A WAY, A PARTNERSHIP BETWEEN THE TWO BOARDS.

UH, AND THEN OF COURSE, JONATHAN WOULD BE OUR GUIDE ENSURE THAT, UM, YOU KNOW, REGULATION AND EVERYTHING.

AND THE KEY THING TO ME WAS JUST TO MAKE SURE THAT THERE WAS SOME STANDARDIZATION.

UM, SO DON'T GO IN THERE AND PUT IN, YOU KNOW, SOME TREE OR FLOWER THAT'S GOING TO TAKE OVER, BUT I KNOW ALL ONE METRIC, RIGHT? I KNOW, I KNOW I CAN WORK WITH THAT.

PERFECT.

SO WHAT I'LL DO IS, UM, I'LL GET WITH ACIDITY AND, UH, AND SEE IF WE CAN GET A LEAD ON HER TEAM.

AND THERE MAY BE A LEAD ON OUR TEAM FOR, UM, WHETHER DR.

PARK HAD THEM WORK TOGETHER WITH JOSH TO ONE UPDATE THE FLYER AND THE TEAM TO GET THE WORD OUT.

SO UNLESS THAT'S SOMETHING BLAKE WANTS TO DO THE PART I PUT AS FAR APART.

UM, CAN YOU REPEAT THAT AGAIN? ACTUALLY, I DIDN'T HEAR THAT PART.

OKAY.

SO WHAT I SAID WAS, UH, WHAT I WOULD LIKE TO SEE IS POTENTIALLY WE HAVE A LEAD FROM, UM, THE PARTS BOARD.

I TALKED TO CINDY, WHO IS THE LEAD, WHO IS CURRENTLY THE CHAIR FOR THE ARTS AND BEAUTIFICATION COMMISSION, TALK TO HER AND SEE IF SHE WILL, UM, SHE CAN GET A LEAD FOR THEM.

AND THEN THOSE TO WORK WITH JOSH, UM, FOR, YOU KNOW, TO GET THE FLYER OUT, UPDATED, TO GET THE WORD OUT, YOU KNOW, ADVERTISING AND GET THE PEOPLE INVOLVED.

AND I THOUGHT THAT MIGHT BE A GOOD TIE IN WITH THE PARK CLEANUP AS WELL.

YEAH, DEFINITELY.

I WOULD, I WOULD, I'D BE WILLING TO HELP OUT WITH THAT.

OKAY.

ALL RIGHT.

SO I'VE GOT, GOT BLAKE IS MY LEAD.

YES.

SO, UM, BUT FEEL FREE TO REACH BACK AND FEEL FREE TO REACH OVER TO JOSH OR MYSELF.

DO YOU HAVE ANY QUESTIONS ON THAT? UM, I THINK IT'S, UM, IT'S A GOOD OPPORTUNITY FOR US TO GET THE WORD OUT ABOUT OUR PARKS, GET PEOPLE INTERESTED TO TAKE CARE OF THE PARTS AND GET SOME IDEAS.

IT'S GREAT OPPORTUNITY FOR YOU TO GET OUT AND, YOU KNOW, TO MEET SOME FOLKS.

UH, CORRECT.

I WANT TO CIRCLE BACK TO THE MOVIE, THE MOVIES, THE MOVIE NIGHTS ARE WE GOING TO TRY TO DO, BUT ONE OF THOSE DRIVING STYLE, ONCE AGAIN, I KNOW IT HAD SOME LITTLE HICCUPS, BUT I STILL FIT WITH THE COVID 19 RESTRICTIONS.

THAT'S PROBABLY THE BEST THAT'S BEEN IF WE CAN WORK OUT WITH ALL THOSE.

YEAH.

SO, UM, JOSH MENTIONED IT EARLIER, WE'RE STILL GONNA DO THE FIVE, UH, ART'S A GOOD VACATION.

I'M GONNA DO THREE.

AND THE TWO THAT WE DO, WE'LL BOTH BE DRIVING.

UM, SO THE DRIVE-INS WERE VERY SUCCESSFUL LAST YEAR AND I WAS OUT OF TOWN FOR ONE, BUT, UM, I WORKED, UM, I WORKED TOGETHER, UM, AND IT WAS GREAT.

I MEAN, FOLKS GOT IN THERE APART, SOCIAL DISTANCE, UM, WERE VERY RESPECTFUL OF ONE ANOTHER AND THEY ENJOYED THEMSELVES.

SO I THINK IT WAS A GREAT OPPORTUNITY.

UM, AND I WOULD LOVE TO CONTINUE DOING THAT EVERY YEAR.

UM, THE ONE THING WE WILL PROBABLY HAVE TO DO IS, YOU KNOW, JUST KEEP GETTING THE WORD OUT, YOU KNOW, I MEAN, IT WAS PACKED.

I FORGOT HOW MANY CARS WE HAD.

THAT'S THE LAST WINDOW I SEE THERE WAS ABOUT A HUNDRED.

UH, NO, WE HAD 60, BUT I MEAN MOST CARS HAD FOUR, YOU KNOW, THREE TO FOUR PEOPLE IN THEM.

YEAH.

YES.

SO IT WAS GREAT.

IT'S A GREAT PARTNERSHIP BETWEEN US AND ART'S A BEAUTIFICATION BOARD.

WE HAD PICO'S THERE WITH POPCORN AND THEN WE HAD A FOOD TRUCK THERE WITH ICE CREAM AND BRONSON CHECKOUTS AND STUFF.

SO IT WAS GREAT.

YEAH.

BOTH OFF OF LOCAL COMPANIES, STILL THE WINGS, THE WINGS TRAITS.

AND HE

[00:30:01]

BRIDES? YES.

YES.

SO THEY WERE REALLY GOOD.

ANYTHING ELSE? OKAY.

SO WHAT WE HAVE, WE HAVE THE MOVIES AND THEN WE ALSO HAVE THE PARK CLEANUPS.

UM, JOSH NOW, DO YOU THINK WE'LL BE ABLE TO DO THE STARGAZING? THAT'S A TOUGH ONE.

I MEAN, YOU GOT EVERYBODY PUTTING THEIR IQ ON, UH, TELESCOPES.

UM, SO I DON'T KNOW, I CAN CALL UP AND ASK HIM, BUT I REALLY DON'T SEE A GOOD WAY OF DOING THAT.

UM, SOCIALLY DISTANCE.

CAUSE I KNOW LAST YEAR SHE SAID THEIR BIGGEST PROBLEM IS, YOU KNOW, A LOT OF THE STUFF YOU WOULD WIPE DOWN TO SANITIZE WITH IS NOT GOOD FOR THE LENSES ON THE TELESCOPES AND THINGS LIKE THAT.

UM, SO THAT ONE WILL PROBABLY BE A NO-GO FOR THE YEAR, I WOULD THINK.

UM, YOU KNOW, UNLESS THERE'S A WAY TO DO IT WITH LIKE A, BRING YOUR OWN BINOCULARS AND JUST SEE WHAT YOU CAN SEE AND HAVE SOMEBODY, YOU KNOW, POINTING AT THINGS.

RIGHT.

OKAY.

UM, AND THEN THE OTHER THING I WANT TO DO IS WORK WITH SOME COMMUNITY PARTNERS.

OKAY.

SO FIND SOME OTHER ACTIVITIES OR PROGRAMS THAT WE CAN WORK WITH THE COMMUNITY PARTNER ON TO PUT ON IN THE PARKS.

SO WE'VE ALREADY TALKED ABOUT, YOU KNOW, WORKING WITH THE Y AND I'LL LEAVE IT UP TO CHRIS AND SEE WHAT WE CAN DO, OR CHRIS AND JOSH.

UH, AND THEN ANOTHER ONE THAT I HAD.

SO AN EXAMPLE OF AN IDEA THAT I HAD, IT CAME FROM PEACE AND TRANQUILITY AND THE PROGRAM CALLED THE TRAVELING BEAR.

UM, SO AS YOU ALL KNOW, OR IF YOU DON'T KNOW, I'LL TELL YOU, UM, THIS YEAR OR MARK THE 40TH YEAR, WHICH HUBER HEIGHTS WAS INCORPORATED.

OKAY.

SO BEFORE TWO YEARS, UM, SO WITH THAT SAID, UM, PEACE OF TRANQUILITY, ONE OF THE PARTNER WITH US PARKS AND RECREATION BOARD, THE OTHER BOARDS, AS WELL AS THE CITY, THE SCHOOLS, AND SOME OTHER ENTITIES WITHIN THE COMMUNITY.

AND WHAT THEY WANTED TO DO IS THIS PROGRAM IS CALLED THE TRAVELING FAIR.

IT'S A FIVE FOOT TALL AND A BEER THAT THEY WOULD, UM, YOU KNOW, PUT A SHIRT ON IT.

CAUSE THEY ALL HAVE A SHIRT ON, LET'S SAY, DEFER 40TH ANNIVERSARY ON 40TH BIRTHDAY OR SOMETHING LIKE THAT.

AND THEN THE IDEA IS TO TAKE THAT BEAR TO EVENTS THROUGHOUT THE YEAR TO THE PARKS TO SORRY, KEEP IT.

SO TO THE PARTS, UM, OUT TO LET'S SAY THE SCHOOLS AND THE ACTIVITIES IN THE CITY WE HAVE AND HAVE BOOKS TAKE PICTURES WITH IT.

OKAY.

TAKE PHOTOS.

AND HE POSTED ON FACEBOOK AND AT THE END OF THE YEAR, WHAT THEY WOULD LIKE TO DO IS GATHER ALL THOSE PHOTOS AND MAKE A BOOK ON IT.

AND THEN THEY WOULD LIKE TO DONATE THAT BOOK AS WELL AS THE FARE TO, UM, TO THE LIBRARY.

SO HE WILL ALWAYS BE THERE.

UM, AND THE COOL THING ABOUT THIS IS THAT, UM, YOU KNOW, IF THE BOOKLET HAVE PHOTOS OF CITIZENS OF CUBA, YOU, YOU CAN GO BACK THROUGH, YOU KNOW, 20 YEARS FROM NOW AND STILL SEE THIS BOOK.

SO MY QUESTION TO YOU IS, IS THIS SOMETHING THAT YOU WANT TO PARTICIPATE IN AND DO, AND WILL YOU SUPPORT IT? UM, ONE OF THE THINGS THAT WE CAN DO IS PUT A PARKS AND RECREATION SHIRT ON IT.

SO IT GETS AT THE PARK EVENTS AND ONE OF US ARE THERE.

WE JUST TAKE IT THERE AND THE KIDS CAN TAKE A PHOTO.

UM, AND THEN THE PARENTS CAN POST IT ON FACEBOOK.

THEY CAN GRAB IT AND PUT IT IN SPORT.

SO IT'S SORT OF LIKE A ROUND THING FOR THE COMMUNITY, BUT, UM, BUT I WANTED TO KNOW WHAT YOUR THOUGHTS ARE AND IF THIS IS SOMETHING THAT THE SCHOOL WOULD BE WILLING TO SUPPORT.

SO I'LL START WITH THE DOMINANCE, RIGHT? NO, THAT SOUNDS LIKE A GREAT IDEA, VERY WAY TO BRING THE COMMUNITY TOGETHER, UH, AND HOPEFULLY, YOU KNOW, BRING SOME MEMORIES FOR A LOT OF THE RESIDENTS FOR YEARS TO COME.

OKAY.

UM, WHEN I, I LIKE, I LIKE ANYTHING THAT BRINGS PEOPLE TOGETHER AND I DIDN'T MENTION THIS, BUT THERE WILL BE A SUPPLY OF WIVES SANITIZER FOR MY DOCTOR OVER HERE, DISINFECTING SPRAY.

SO ALL OF THAT WILL BE IN THE BACKPACK SO WE CAN KNOW WHAT WILL BE TAKEN CARE OF.

UM, SO YOU NEVER KNOW HOW SOMEONE'S GOING AROUND THE ROOM.

I'M GONNA GO AROUND THE ROOM AND SKIP JOSH BECAUSE HE DOESN'T HAVE HIS HAND

[00:35:01]

DOWN FROM JOSH A, UH, SO MY, MY THOUGHT TO THIS IS, UM, WOULD THIS BE SOMETHING BETTER TO HAVE, TO ENCOURAGE PEOPLE TO COME TO OUR PARKS AND TAKE PICTURES AT OUR PARK ON THE PLAYGROUND EQUIPMENT OR, YOU KNOW, IN FRONT OF ONE OF THE PARKS SIGNS AND DO THE SAME TYPE OF THING WITHOUT THE BEAR.

OKAY.

AND WAS THE PERSON ON THE FLOOR AND BRIAN, WHAT HAPPENED TO THE BANK? AND YOU'RE LOOKING FOR, IT'S GREAT THAT IT'S A SIGN UBER PARK.

ISN'T GOING TO ADD THAT EXTRA FORM WITH A MASCOT OR WHATEVER YOU WANT TO CALL IT.

OKAY.

THANK YOU.

ABOUT BACK 40 YEARS AGO IN THAT A LOT OF YOU GUYS THINK, THINKING ABOUT IT.

I WANT TO START WITH THE SMOKEY, THE BEAR, THE BEAR THERE, ALL THEIR PR WAS ALWAYS THERE.

, I'M AGREEING.

I THINK, I THINK PEOPLE, WHAT I ATTACH TO IT, LIKE EVERYONE WONDER WHAT BETTER WAY THEN AFTER THE PANDA THERE, UH, PROMOTE PEOPLE, SEE IT AND TALK ABOUT, OKAY, SO THEN LET ME ASK THIS QUESTION IN THIS WAY, USING THIS.

THIS IS AN IDEA.

UM, SO WHAT IF WE DO BOTH? OKAY.

UM, BEFORE OUR FACEBOOK PAGE SPECIFICALLY, WE'RE LOOKING AT HAVING FOLKS GO OUT AND IF WE TIE IT TO SOMETHING LIKE THE SCAVENGER HUNT THAT WE WERE TALKING ABOUT LAST YEAR JARS, UM, YOU'RE HAVING PEOPLE GO OUT, TAKING PHOTOS, POSTED ON OUR PAGE.

THIS IS WHAT I DID TODAY AT THE PARK, OR, YOU KNOW, WE HAVE SOMEONE PETE BROWN, SO WE PUT IT AROUND AND TAKE PHOTOS, ET CETERA.

SO WE DO THINGS LIKE THAT.

AND THEN THE BEAR STILL TRAVELS AND DOES THE SAME THING.

SO, AND THEN WE CAN TAKE ALL THOSE PHOTOS AND PERHAPS IT'S STILL CAN BE INCORPORATED.

YEAH.

HOW ABOUT THAT? HOW DOES THAT SOUND? SO YOU HAVE PHOTOS WITH THE BEAR, SO MOVE DOWN AND THEN THEY CAN DECIDE WHAT PHOTOS WE HADN'T BEEN BEARABLE WILL BE INCLUDED.

RIGHT.

SO, UM, LET'S SEE.

J I THINK IT'S A GOOD IDEA.

I MEAN THAT ANY, ANY PICTURES SAY A THOUSAND WORDS AS WE ALL KNOW.

SO, I MEAN, IF YOU COULD FIND YOURSELF IN A BOOK 10 YEARS FROM NOW, I'M ALL FOR IT.

SO YEAH.

I LIKE THE IDEA OF THE BEAR AND THAT SOUNDED LIKE A GREAT, I LIKE THE IDEA OF DOING BOTH.

UH, I THINK HAVING THE, I THINK HAVING THE BEAR, UH, WOULD KIND OF HIGHLIGHT THE 40TH ANNIVERSARY ASPECT.

WHEREAS IF WE ONLY DID THE PARKS SIGNS, IT MIGHT NOT HIGHLIGHT THAT ASPECT, BUT I THINK BOTH WOULD BE, WOULD BE GOOD.

CHRIS HALL.

YEAH.

I LIKE, I LIKE BOTH IDEAS ALSO.

AND I THINK, UM, MAYBE WITH A BEAR, THAT'D BE SOMETHING TO HIT.

ONE OF THESE YOUTH ORGANIZATIONS THAT ARE USING YOUR PARKS, LIKE THE BASEBALL, OR I KNOW FOOTBALL PRACTICES THERE, OR LIKE OF THE GIRL SCOUTS ARE HAVING A MEETING AT ONE OF THE PARKS, HAVE THE BEAR OUT THERE TO TAKE PICTURES OF THAT, THAT WAY YOU INCORPORATE THE YOUTH IN THERE AND HOW THE YOUTH USE OUR PARTS.

AND THEN YOU COULD EITHER COME UP WITH A HASHTAG TO PUT ON THERE, UM, OUT OF YOU SPEND YOUR 40 MINUTES IN THE PARK OR SOMETHING LIKE THAT.

COOL.

ALL RIGHT.

YOU'RE THE PERSON WHO WENT AROUND LIST HAVE THE BEER.

YEAH.

YEAH.

I MEAN, IF WE COULD HAVE THE BEAR AND IT'D BE EASY, I SAID IT WAS DO IT THAT WAY.

SO WHAT I'LL DO IS I'LL LET JAY,

[00:40:02]

HEY, IT'S JUST A THOUGHT I WANT TO, WHY CAN'T WE JUST HAVE THE BARE HOLD DESIGN AND BE BOTH? NO, I'M THINKING, I'M THINKING A LITTLE PARK SIGN.

YEAH.

OH, OKAY.

WELL ALL OF OUR SIGNS LIKE CUTE.

NO, I KNOW, BUT WE, WE CAN COME UP WITH THE SIGN HE'S ENOUGH.

OKAY.

YEAH.

I THINK THAT COULD WORK.

I GOT TO FIGURE OUT A YARD SIGN, SOMETHING SIMPLE, BUT YOU COULD JUST SAY PARKS AND REC BOARD OR WHATEVER.

RIGHT.

OKAY.

YEAH.

I'LL HAVE TO FIGURE OUT A COST THERE I'LL WORK WITH JOHN.

UM, OKAY.

SO IT SEEMS LIKE WE'RE ALL ON BOARD.

IT'S ALL.

UM, I'LL LET SOMEBODY KNOW SEMI'S GOING TO BRING IT TO, SHE'S GOING TO TAKE IT TO THE MIX DOWN, UH, WHICH IS, UM, INTRODUCING THE IDEA TO COME IN.

SO YES, SIR.

CHRIS HALL HAS HIS HAND UP, HEY, HEY, I LIKED THE SIGN THAT HE BROUGHT UP THE YARD SIGN, AND THAT COULD BE YOUR, YOUR HASHTAG COULD BE TIED INTO THAT, YOU KNOW, HASHTAG 40 MINUTES IN THE PARK.

AND THEN MAYBE ONCE A WEEK OF THESE PICTURES ARE GENERATED, YOU PICK A, UM, I DON'T KNOW, HOW WOULD WE WORD THIS? BUT LIKE, UH, THE PERSON THAT'S GETTING THE MOST USE OUT OF OUR PARKS THAT WEEK, AND YOU CAN MAKE THEM A FEATURE ON OUR FACEBOOK PAGE OR SOMETHING LIKE THAT, BECAUSE THE HASHTAG WOULD DIRECT IT DIRECTLY TO OUR FACEBOOK PAGE.

THEY DID HASHTAG EVERY TIME THEY TOOK A PICTURE.

ALL RIGHT.

SO CHRIS, I'M GOING TO REACH OUT TO YOU THIS, UH, THIS WEEK, NEXT WEEK TO TALK SOME MORE ABOUT THAT.

UM, AND, AND THEN, UH, AND THEN, UH, AS WE, AS IT GETS READY TO MOVE FORWARD, WE'LL BRING IT BACK TO THE BOARD AND WE'LL HAVE A PLAN IN PLACE FOR WHEN THE SPRING HITS AND EVERYONE STARTS USING THE PARK, THEN WE'LL START THROWING OUT THE HASHTAG AND ALL OF THAT.

SO IT SOUNDS LIKE EVERYONE'S ON BOARD AND THAT DEFINITELY DOES ENCOURAGE PEOPLE TO USE THE PARTS, WHICH IS ONE, NOT A NUMBER ONE REASON FOR BEING HERE, THE FIRST HOUSE TO GET OUT OF THIS DEPARTMENT OF ISLAM AS MUCH AS POSSIBLE.

OKAY.

SO WE'VE COVERED ALL OF THOSE.

UM, DOES ANYONE HAVE ANY ADDITIONAL BUSINESS? I GOT ONE MORE THING, VINCE, UM, REAL FAST, UH, BLAKE AND CHRIS, YOU GUYS COULD SEND ME YOUR SHIRT SIZES.

UM, WE DO HAVE OUR PARKS AND REC SHIRT.

I'M GOING TO HOLD UP CHRIS GILLIGAN OFFSITE AS AN EXAMPLE SINCE, UH, SOMEHOW I'VE NEVER GOT IT TO HIM.

I COULDN'T FIND IT.

YEAH.

ALL THIS TIME.

HE COULDN'T FIND IT IS CAUSE IT WAS IN MY OFFICE.

IS IT BLURRING PERSON ALSO? UH, YES.

I THINK THAT'S JUST COMING FROM MY BACKGROUND, BUT IT'S JUST A GREAT DRY FIT POLO SHIRT.

UH, IT SAYS, GOT THE CITY LOGO, SAYS PARKS AND REC BOARD ON IT.

UM, I DO HAVE AN EXTRA TWO X FROM A FORMER BOARD MEMBER WHO LEFT.

SO IF EITHER OF YOU WERE TO X, I GOT ONE FOR YOU ALREADY.

IF NOT SEND ME YOUR SHIRT SIZE AND WE CAN GET THOSE ORDERED.

ALL RIGHT.

AND, UH, CHRIS AND BLAKE, UM, WE'RE GONNA TRY AND SET UP LIKE A CHRIS, YOU HAVE YOUR HAND UP.

YEAH.

ONE OF THE THINGS I WANTED TO TALK ABOUT, I SAW IN THE THING THAT YOU'D SENT OUT ABOUT THE BASKETBALL THREE ON THREE AND ME KIND OF ME AND JOSH KIND OF MENTIONED SOMETHING ABOUT THAT EARLIER THIS YEAR.

UM, YOU KNOW, WE, THE HUBRIS BASKETBALL LEAGUE WOULD BE MORE THAN WILLING TO HELP TRY TO PUT THAT ON A TALK WITH MY BOARD AND THEY THINK IT'S A GREAT IDEAL.

SO THAT'S SOMETHING WE WANT TO GO FORWARD WITH.

I KNOW SOMEONE THREW OUT THERE SOMETHING ABOUT LIKE $10,000 CHARGE FOR AT GUST MACKIE.

WE DON'T NEED ANYTHING LIKE THAT.

LET'S KEEP IT A HOME AND DO IT, DO IT LOCALLY.

ALL RIGHT.

AWESOME.

SOUNDS GREAT.

THAT'S THAT SOUNDS LIKE A GREAT PARTNERSHIP WITH OUR USER GROUPS THERE.

UM, SO, UH, CHRIS, WE WILL GET WITH YOU AND JOSH AND I WILL GET WITH YOU TO FIGURE OUT HOW, HOW THAT, HOW THAT COULD POTENTIALLY LOOK, BECAUSE I'M SURE THERE ARE GUIDELINES THAT WE WON'T HAVE TO FOLLOW, UM, FROM THE CITY PERSPECTIVE WHEN IT COMES TO THE RESTRICTIONS.

SO WE JUST WANT TO MAKE SURE ALL THAT'S, YOU KNOW, SET AND THAT WE KNOW WHAT THE, AS THE ED STARTED GOING THROUGH THE PLANNING PHASE.

SO I THINK THAT'S A GREAT IDEA.

UM, SO I'LL REACH OUT TO YOU AND JOSH TO SEE IF WE CAN HAVE A QUICK DISCUSSION OR THAT.

SO, UM, BUT THINGS AGAIN, UM, LET'S SEE.

OKAY.

BLAKE AND PRINCE HALL, I WILL GET WITH YOU, UM, SOMETIME THIS WEEK TO SCHEDULE A TIME FOR YOU ALL TO DO YOUR OWN.

UM, I THINK WE HAVE TO DO THAT IN PERSON, UM, BECAUSE OF THE FLAGS, I'M GOING TO DOUBLE CHECK THOSE, UH, CHECK

[00:45:01]

WITH THE CITY, UM, TOMORROW.

AND I'LL GET WITH YOU TO SEE IF THAT'S SOMETHING THAT WE CAN DO IN PERSON IN HERE SO THAT WE, YOU KNOW, I LIVE RIGHT DOWN THE STREET.

SO WE COME UP HERE ONE DAY AND WE JUST HAVE YOU DO YOUR HEALTH AND THEN WE'LL HAVE YOU SIGN THE DOCUMENTATION OR GO OVER TO THE Y ACTIVATE.

SO HOW HAVE YOU DO THE DOCUMENTATION? GOOD.

JUST LET ME KNOW.

THURSDAY'S A BUSY DAY FOR ME, SO ANY DAY, BUT THAT WOULD BE GREAT.

OKAY, AWESOME.

UM, SO I'LL GIVE IT TO, I'LL GET WITH JOSH AND SEE, AND CHRIS AND SEE WHAT WE CAN DO.

AND THEN I'LL WORK WITH YOU ALL TO GET A DATE ON THAT.

SO ARE THERE ANY OTHER ADDITIONAL BUSINESS ANNOUNCEMENTS? NO.

OKAY.

SO, UM, WITH THAT SAID, AS EVERYONE HAD THE OPPORTUNITY TO REVIEW THE MINUTES.

OKAY.

YOU GOT THE, OKAY.

OKAY.

SO HAS EVERYBODY ELSE READ THE MINUTES? NOPE.

OKAY.

SO WE WILL POSTPONE APPROVAL OF THE MINUTES UNTIL OUR FEBRUARY MEETING.

I WILL READ, SEND OUT THE MINUTES AGAIN TONIGHT TO EVERYONE.

I WILL DROP OFF A PAPI OVER TO GLENN MARIA.

I'LL DROP IT OFF.

I'LL KNOCK ON THE DOOR AT THIS TIME, AND THEN WE'LL APPROVE THE MINUTES AT THE NEXT MINIMUM FEBRUARY.

OKAY.

SO OUR NEXT MEETING IS ON FEBRUARY 18TH AT SIX 30.

IF THERE ARE NO FURTHER QUESTIONS OR COMMENTS, THE MEETING WILL BE ADJOURNED SEVEN 18, THE MEETING'S ADJOURNED.
