I THINK THAT WAS JOSH'S IDEA LAST YEAR.

I CAN'T REMEMBER FOR SURE.

SO, YOU KNOW, I'M OPEN TO ANY AND ALL IDEAS.

I DO HAVE THAT AND THEN I SORTA ACQUIRED IT SPECIFICALLY FOR, FOR THIS AS WELL, JUST IN CASE IT WOULD NEED TO BE USED OR WE COULD USE IT AT OTHER EVENTS AS WELL, SO.

[00:35:08]

THAT'S A GOOD IDEA.

IS THERE ANYONE WILLING TO TAKE THE LEAD ON IT? OKAY.

ALL RIGHT.

I'LL ASK THE QUESTION NEXT MONTH AGAIN, AND THEN WE'LL GO FROM THERE.

ALL RIGHT.

UM, OKAY, SO NOW THE NEXT ITEM IS OTHER PARK ACTIVITIES.

SO, UM, I KNOW GLEN, YOU HAVEN'T HAD THE CHANCE TO READ IT IN DEPTH, BUT THAT'S WHAT I PROVIDED YOU WAS AN EXAMPLE.

UM, SO I SENT OUT TO EVERYONE, A DRAFT OF A CONCEPT FOR, UM, THE IDEA WE WERE TALKING ABOUT ABOUT HOW TO INCREASE PART USAGE.

AND ONE OF THOSE WORDS YOU USED THE HASHTAG 40 IN THE PART.

SO THE DOCUMENT THAT I SENT YOU CALLED 40 IN THE PARTS, BUT THE ENTIRE CONCEPT IS IT'S, IT'S ALL ABOUT, YOU KNOW, JUST GETTING, FINDING WAYS TO GET PEOPLE OUT THERE, TALKING ABOUT OUR PARTS AND DOING DIFFERENT THINGS.

SO WHAT I DID WAS I INCLUDED THINGS, UM, LIKE, UM, SO YES, WE WOULD USE HASHTAGS VARIETY OF HASHTAGS, RIGHT? SO WE HAVE THE HASHTAG 40 AND APART YOU HAVE THE HASHTAG, YOU KNOW, WELLNESS, WEDNESDAYS, OR WELLNESS FRIDAYS OR SOMETHING LIKE THAT.

AND WE WOULD SORT OF PULL SOME TIPS AND PROMOTE SOME TIPS ABOUT WHAT'S WHAT'S IN THE PARK OR DIFFERENT TYPES OF WELLNESS ACTIVITIES.

RIGHT.

TRYING TO KEEP IT AS REALLY SIMPLE AS POSSIBLE.

THE OTHER PART OF THAT, IT'S ALSO COMING UP WITH, UM, SOME SMALL EFFECTS, YOU KNOW, DID YOU KNOW THAT, YOU KNOW, THOMAS CLOUD PARK HAS A HEADS ONE, TWO, THREE, FOUR, I'M SORRY, THREE PLATE, OR IT HAS A RENEWED, YOU KNOW, TENNIS SCORE, RESURFACE, TENNIS COURTS AND STUFF LIKE THAT.

SO JUST COMING UP WITH SOME QUICK FACTS, OR DID YOU KNOW, THIS IS THE BACKGROUND BEHIND, WHY ARE THOMAS CALLED PARK MEMORIAL PARK IT'S NAME, YOU KNOW, JUST PUSH US SOME OF THAT INFORMATION OUT.

AND THEN WE ALSO HAVE, YOU KNOW, PROMOTING EVENTS.

SO THAT COULD BE THE MOVIE SERIES, THE, UM, MOVIE SERIES DID THE MUSIC SERIES, THE FARMER'S MARKET, UH, THE JULY, UH, UH, STAR-SPANGLED HUBER THE STAR-SPANGLED HEIGHTS EVENT, UM, AS WELL AS ANY PARKS AND RECREATION ACTIVITIES.

OKAY.

AND THEN THE OTHER PIECE OF THAT IS ALSO ENCOURAGING PEOPLE TO GO OUT AND SPEND 40 MINUTES A DAY, 40 MINUTES A WEEK.

WE'RE JUST GOING OUT INTO THE PARK AND DOING SOME TYPE OF PHYSICAL ACTIVITY.

THIS ISN'T JUST FOR THE YOU, BUT IT'S ALSO FOR ADULTS AS WELL.

AND THAT CAN INCLUDE WORKING WITH SOME OF OUR COMMUNITY ORGANIZATIONS OR RESIDENTS TO ASK THE QUESTION AND GATHER INFORMATION ON, UM, WHO, WHAT ARE YOU DOING OUT IN THE FARM? WHO HAS ANY, WHO HAS WORKED WITH GROUP WORK? YOU KNOW, UM, WHO'S DOING YOGA IN THE PARK, YOU KNOW, CAN WE PROMOTE THAT OR GO AHEAD AND USE THIS AND JUST PUSHING INFORMATION OUT OF IT.

YOU'LL BE OUT THERE AT SIX 30 TO SEVEN EVERY SATURDAY MORNING, YOU KNOW? SO THINGS LIKE THAT.

SO THE CONCEPT THAT I PROVIDED YOU IS VERY BASIC AND VERY GENERAL, JUST TO GIVE YOU AN IDEA.

AND, UH, WHEN I'M THINKING OF LOCATIONS, I'M THINKING OF ANYWHERE, ANYWHERE WITHIN THE PARTS SYSTEM.

OKAY.

THAT INCLUDES THE Y.

SO NOW WE'RE PARTNERING WITH THE Y AS WELL.

AND THEN ALSO, UM, DON'T WANT TO PICK IT ABOUT THE METRO FIVE RIVERS, BECAUSE WE HAVE A COUPLE OF THOSE WITHIN SHUBHRA HEIGHTS, BUT THEN ALSO, YOU KNOW, IF WE HAVE ANY, ANYTHING ELSE GOING ON, YOU KNOW, IF SOMEONE ELSE HAS DONE ANY OTHER TYPE OF EVENTS, UM, MAYBE AT THE COMMUNITY CENTER, THE GIRL SCOUTS ARE DOING SOMETHING JUST TO HELP TO PROMOTE, YOU KNOW, WHAT WE ARE DOING WITHIN THE CITY MAP.

YES, SIR.

I THINK WE SHOULD ALSO ADD DIAL ARE WELL DOWN THE ROAD.

[00:40:01]

OKAY.

UH, TAYLORSVILLE.

SO, SO ARE THERE ANY QUESTIONS, COMMENTS, POSITIVE, NEGATIVE.

I'M OPEN.

SEPARATE JOSH, GO AHEAD.

OKAY.

EVENTS REAL FAST.

UM, JUST SO EVERYBODY REMEMBERS THIS YEAR IS THE CITY'S 40TH BIRTHDAY.

SO THAT THEME WILL PLAY INTO A LOT WITH THE PARADE AS WELL.

SO AS WE'RE PLANNING A FLOAT, UH, KEEP THAT 40TH BIRTHDAY IN MIND AS WELL.

OKAY.

AND THIS PROGRAM TOOL WILL CONTINUE MOVING FORWARD.

MAYBE WE MAY NOT USE THEIR HASHTAG 40 DEPARTS NEXT YEAR, BUT AT LEAST THAT'S WHAT HELPED GET US STARTED AND HELPED, YOU KNOW, CREATE.

AND THEN HOPEFULLY THIS WILL BE PART OF OUR PROGRAMMING, YOU KNOW, SOMETHING THAT WE CAN DO WITH THE BOARD TO HELP GET THE WORD OUT, YOU KNOW, AND WE'RE NOT NECESSARILY RELYING SO MUCH ON CITY STAFF AND THAT'S ONE OF MY INITIAL THINGS WE WANT TO HELP COMPLIMENT WHAT THEY'RE DOING, BUT WE ALSO WANT TO DO OUR PART AS WELL.

SO, UM, WITHOUT FURTHER ADO, BUT GO AHEAD AND MOVE ON TO ITEM SEVEN.

SO YOU ALWAYS JUST START SEEING SOME OF THAT INFORMATION WILL COME OUT FAIRLY SOON.

SO WE'LL GO AHEAD AND MOVE ON TO AGENDA ITEM NUMBER SEVEN, ADDITIONAL BUSINESS AND ANNOUNCEMENTS.

SO I DO HAVE A QUESTION FOR JOSH.

ARE WE STILL DOING THE TENNIS CAMP THIS YEAR? UH, YES.

WE'RE ACTUALLY GOING TO BE DOING TWO OF THEM.

UH, THE WEEKEND OF MAY 21ST.

LET ME, LET ME DOUBLE CHECK HERE.

I THINK IT'S THAT WEEKEND.

YEAH, IT WILL BE ON MAY 22ND, UH, WORKING WITH, UH, A GENTLEMAN FROM U D WHO IS A GRADUATE STUDENT WHO WILL BE HERE FOR THE SUMMER.

UH, THAT DAY IS ACTUALLY PART OF A NATIONAL CAMPAIGN FOR, UM, FAMILY TENNIS.

SO WE'RE GOING TO HOLD LIKE AN HOUR AND A HALF, TWO HOUR KIND OF FAMILY TENNIS EVENT ON THE 22ND.

AND THEN WE'RE STILL TRYING TO GET A DATE TOGETHER TO DO THE CAMP THAT WE DID LAST SUMMER WITH THE USTA.

UH, IT WAS VERY SUCCESSFUL.

WE'VE HAD LOTS OF PEOPLE ACTUALLY CALL SINCE THEN ASKING WHEN WE'RE DOING THAT AGAIN.

UM, SO I'M WORKING WITH HIM TO SEE WHAT HIS SCHEDULE LOOKS LIKE AND ALSO VOLUNTEERS, UM, HOW HE CAN GET SOME VOLUNTEERS FROM A U D AND OTHER PLACES TO COME HELP WITH THAT CAMP ALSO.

PERFECT.

OKAY.

SO ALSO WANT TO REMIND EVERYONE AS WELL THAT, UM, LAST YEAR WE HAD ABOUT OR OVER, I'LL SAY ABOUT, UH, ABOUT, UH, 100, UM, PRAYING SETS AND SMALL SOCCER FIELDS USE A WOODEN ONES THAT YOU COULD PICK UP AT THE HARDWARE STORE.

UM, THEY WERE DONATED TO US.

SO, UH, ONE OF THE THINGS THAT, UH, WE WERE LOOKING AT DOING IS COMING UP WITH SOME TYPE OF EVENT FOR THE SUMMER, AND THAT'S ALL PENDING THE ENVIRONMENT, COME UP WITH SOME TYPE OF EVENTS THAT WE CAN HELP PUT THEM TOGETHER AND THE KIDS CAN PAINT THEM.

SO THEY'RE NOT, THEY'RE NOT HUGE.

THEY'RE FAIRLY SMALL.

UM, SO WANT TO MAKE SURE YOU GUYS WERE AWARE OF THAT AND THAT'S ON YOUR, ON YOUR MIND AS WELL.

UM, SOMETHING ELSE THAT, THAT THE CITY IS DOING AS WELL.

I KNOW THAT WE'VE TALKED ABOUT DOING SOME TYPE OF CALENDAR OF EVENTS AND STUFF LIKE THAT.

SO, UM, JOSH AND SARAH HAVE BEEN WORKING IN ARE DILIGENTLY

[00:45:01]

WORKING TO DEVELOP A CALENDAR FOR BOTH THE AMPHITHEATER AS WELL AS THE COMMUNITY CENTER.

SO ONCE THAT'S UP AND RUNNING, UM, WE'LL, WE'LL LET YOU ALL KNOW WHEN IT'S POSTED AS WELL.

SO THAT'LL BE GOOD FOR THE COMMUNITY AND GOOD FOR US AS WELL, BECAUSE NOW WE'LL KNOW WHEN THE, YOU KNOW, UH, WHEN THE, UM, WHEN EVENTS ARE HAPPENING THERE AND WHEN IT'S SERVED AND WHEN IT'S UP.

OKAY.

ARE THERE ANY QUESTIONS OR ANY OF THAT? NOPE.

OKAY.

PERFECT.

ALL RIGHT.

SO, UM, JOSH, FOR MY CLARIFICATION, CAN YOU CLARIFY SOMETHING FOR ME AGAIN, THE SKATE PARK THAT'S AT MONITA FIELD? UM, EVEN THOUGH WE'RE TRYING TO LOOK FOR POTENTIAL FOR THE GRANT, RIGHT.

FOR THAT, IS IT POSSIBLE WHAT'S THE PROCESS TO START THE RFP? SO THAT WAY WE CAN FIGURE OUT HOW MUCH, HOW MUCH IT WOULD COST OR AT LEAST START DESIGNING AND LOOKING AT IT.

I INITIALLY GOT WITH A COMPANY THAT SENT ME SOME DESIGNS AND, UM, ROB SHOMER AND I HAD TAKEN THOSE, AND I BELIEVE HE HAD THOSE NUMBERS AND SHARED THEM WITH COUNCIL.

I DON'T REMEMBER AT THE MOMENT, BUT, UH, I WAS ASKED TO GO BACK AND HAVE THAT COMPANY KIND OF PUT SOME DIFFERENT SIZE PACKAGES TOGETHER.

UM, CAUSE A LOT OF THEM WERE THE COST FOR THE RAMPS THEMSELVES.

WEREN'T TERRIBLE, BUT THE, YOU KNOW, 40 TO 60 YARDS OF CONCRETE THAT WE WOULD NEED TO MAKE A PAD FOR THEM WAS WHAT WAS GOING TO BE EXPENSIVE.

SO WE WERE TRYING TO SEE HOW WE COULD, UM, MAYBE PIECE SOME OF THOSE TOGETHER AND MAKE THE COST MORE EFFECTIVE.

SO I STILL HAVEN'T HEARD BACK FROM THE VENDOR YET ON KIND OF PUTTING THOSE LITTLE PACKAGES TOGETHER FOR THAT.

BUT ONCE I GET A KIND OF AN IDEA OF A PRICE, UM, AND THEN I'LL KNOW, AND WE CAN'T REALLY, UM, GO OUT FOR AN RFP UNTIL I APPLIED FOR THE GRANT AND WE FIND OUT IF WE'VE GOTTEN IT ANYWAY.

UM, SO ONCE WE WANT, YOU KNOW, ONCE WE GET THE GRANT, THEN I CAN SEND IT OUT FOR BID AND REQUESTS AND STUFF LIKE THAT TO GET COMPANIES TO COME IN AND BID IT OUT.

OKAY.

AWESOME.

THANK YOU.

ALL RIGHT.

I THINK THAT'S ALL THAT I HAVE.

OKAY.

SO ARE THERE ANY QUESTIONS FOR JOSH ON THAT, ON THAT TOPIC? OH, QUESTION HERE.

OKAY, PERFECT.

SO, UM, WE'LL GO AHEAD AND MOVE ON TO THE NEXT AGENDA.

ITEM NUMBER EIGHT, UH, APPROVAL OF MINUTES.

HAS EVERYONE HAD THE OPPORTUNITY TO REVIEW THE MINUTES? OKAY.

YES.

AND OKAY.

I'M SEEING YOU GUYS HERE.

SO IF THERE ARE NO OBJECTIONS, THE MINUTES WILL BE APPROVED AS WRITTEN.

OKAY.

HEY JOSH, CAN I TAKE A MINUTE TO SAY, UM, TODAY IS MY OFFICIAL LAST MEETING? I BELIEVE SO.

I, YOU KNOW, IT'S BEEN AN INCREDIBLE YEAR, UH, A VERY CHALLENGING YEAR, BOTH PERSONALLY, AND AS A GROUP FOR ANYBODY.

SO WHAT, WHAT YOU GUYS HAVE ACCOMPLISHED IS INCREDIBLE.

SO KEEP DOING WHAT YOU'RE DOING, BUT TODAY IS MY LAST MEETING AND I WANTED TO SAY THANK YOU FOR A LOT OF ENJOYMENT AND A LOT OF UNDERSTANDING OF THE PARK SYSTEM.
