ALL RIGHT, WE'LL GO AHEAD AND MOVE ON TO AGENDA ITEM NUMBER THREE, OPENING REMARKS BY THE CHAIR.

UM, SO WELCOME TO JULY'S MEETING EVERYONE.

UH, AGAIN, THIS IS VIRTUAL.

I BELIEVE THIS IS MAINLY VIRTUAL BECAUSE OF THE STATUS THAT WE'RE IN MONTGOMERY COUNTY.

UM, AND THIS IS TO HELP, UM, REDUCE AND LESSEN, UM, YOU KNOW, THE SPREAD OF, UH COVID-19.

UH, SO WITHOUT FURTHER ADO, WE'RE GOING TO GO AHEAD AND GET STARTED WITH THE MEETING.

WERE THERE ANY CITIZEN COMMENTS RECEIVED? OKAY, I'LL TAKE THAT AS A, NO, UM, FOR WE'LL GO AHEAD AND MOVE ON TO OLD BUSINESS AND PART MANAGER UPDATE.

ALL RIGHT.

HOW HAS EVERYBODY GONE? WELL, SO WE HAD A GREAT TURNOUT FOR THE DRIVE IN MOVIE, UH, SATURDAY EVENING, UH, WE WERE EXPECTING PROBABLY ABOUT 30 TO 40 AND WE HAD 60 CARS AT ONE POINT.

UM, DID HAVE A LITTLE BIT OF TECHNICAL DIFFICULTY WITH THE FM TRANSMITTER.

UM, THEY HAD IT PREPROGRAMMED TO 87, FIVE, AND MOST NEW CAR STEREOS DO NOT GO THAT LOW.

SO THEY TRIED TO FIND ANOTHER CHANNEL COULDN'T, BUT THIS PA SYSTEM WAS LOUD ENOUGH.

UM, YOU COULD HEAR IT.

SO WE, UM, WE DID END UP GETTING A BIT OF A REFUND FOR THAT, BUT ALL IN ALL IT WENT WELL.

UM, I THINK PEOPLE WERE HAPPY WITH THE MOVIE CHOICE AND THE FOOD TRUCK AND EVERYTHING THING, HAVING THAT FORMAT.

SO I THINK IT WOULD, UH, I WOULD PUT THAT ONE DOWN AS A SUCCESS.

GOOD.

UM, LET'S SEE, WHAT ELSE WE GOT FARMER'S MARKETS STARTS SATURDAY MORNING AT THE EICHELBERGER AMPHITHEATER, UM, FOR IT'LL BE FROM 10 TO TWO EVERY SATURDAY THROUGH OCTOBER.

UM, WE ARE TAKING, YOU KNOW, THE, UH, THE COVID, UM, GUIDELINES FOR FARMER'S MARKETS AND THINGS LIKE THAT.

IT'LL BE A LITTLE DIFFERENT THAN NORMAL, BUT, UM, WE'LL HAVE THINGS, YOU KNOW, SPACED OUT AS SAFE AS WE CAN.

UM, IF A WEATHER DOESN'T CHANGE AND SCHEDULES DON'T CHANGE, WE WILL BE STARTING INSTALL OF THE NEW PLAYGROUND AT CLOUD PARK ON MONDAY OR NOT.

CLOUD PARKS ARE A BELL PLANE, UH, ON MONDAY, UH, THE CONTRACTOR, UM, IT'S SUPPOSED TO BE COMING IN AND, UH, HE SAYS IT SHOULD TAKE US A DAY, BUT IT MIGHT TAKE US TWO DAYS.

UM, MYSELF, HIM AND THREE OR FOUR GUYS FROM THE STREET DEPARTMENT ARE ALL GONNA BUST THAT OUT AND GET IT PUT TOGETHER AND LET'S SEE WHAT ELSE WE GOT SATURDAY.

I'M GONNA MAKE SURE I'M NOT JUMPING AHEAD HERE.

NOPE.

OH, I AM.

THAT'S UNDER OLD BUSINESS RIGHT NOW.

OKAY.

WE'RE GOOD.

UM, AND, UH, LATER ON SATURDAY EVENING, WE'RE HAVING OUR CONCERT SERIES AT THE EICHELBERGER WITH THE, UH, DAVE GREER'S CLASSIC JAZZ STOMPERS.

UM, WE'LL HAVE A FOOD TRUCK FOR THAT EVENT AS WELL.

AND, UH, I'M TRYING TO THINK IF WE'VE GOT ANYTHING ELSE HAPPENING RIGHT NOW.

I THINK THAT'S IT.

OH, THE TENNIS CAMP WE HAD, UM, I THINK OUR FINAL COUNT WAS BETWEEN 50 AND 60 FOR THE MS CAMP, BUT THE OTHER MONTH, UM, WE'VE GOT, I THINK WE'VE GOT ALL THE VOLUNTEERS WE NEED, BUT WE COULD ALWAYS USE MORE IF THERE'S ANYBODY

[00:05:01]

WHO FEELS, UM, COMPELLED TO HELP.

LET ME KNOW.

THERE IS A, UM, A LINK TO GET QUALIFIED.

YOU HAVE TO GO THROUGH THE SAFE PLAY, UH, PROGRAM THROUGH USTA AND DO THEIR BACKGROUND CHECK.

UH, SO IF ANYBODY WANTS TO DO THAT, LET ME KNOW TONIGHT.

CAUSE IT DOES TAKE ABOUT 10 DAYS FOR THEM TO GET THOSE RESULTS BACK, UM, FOR THE BACKGROUND CHECK.

UM, SO, BUT IF ANYBODY DOES WANT TO HELP WITH THAT, JUST LET ME KNOW TO DO THAT LINK.

IT TAKES YOU BOUT AN HOUR AND A HALF, TWO HOURS TO GO THROUGH THE VIDEOS, TAKE ALL THE LITTLE QUIZZES AND STUFF.

BUT, UM, I THINK IT'S GOING TO BE A GOOD TIME WITH THE KIDS.

SO BEFORE THE TENNIS CAMP, DO WE HAVE TO VOLUNTEER FOR THEM OR WE VOLUNTEER FOR AN ENTIRE WEEK OR A COUPLE OF DAYS? OR WHAT DO YOU KNOW? I MEAN, IF YOU'RE GOING TO COME, IT'D BE BEST TO COME FOR THE WHOLE WEEK.

THAT WAY WE HAVE CONSISTENCY IN NUMBERS.

UM, IT'S MONDAY THROUGH THURSDAY, UH, LEAVING FRIDAY OPEN FOR A RAIN DAY.

UM, AND IT'S TWO HOURS IN THE EVENING FROM SIX TO SEVEN FOR FIRST THROUGH THIRD GRADE AND SEVEN TO EIGHT FOR FOURTH THROUGH SIXTH GRADE.

SO, UM, BUT YEAH, LIKE I SAID, IF ANYBODY'S AVAILABLE ONE MORE TIME, JUST LET ME KNOW.

I'LL SEND YOU THAT LINK.

ALRIGHT.

HEY, HEY, JOSH HAS J UM, I WOULD PLAN ON COMING SATURDAY AND TAKE PICTURES OF THE TENNIS, UM, RIBBON CUTTING IN.

MAYBE I MISSED IT, BUT WASN'T THERE SOMETHING COMING UP FOR THE DOG PARK AS WELL.

THERE WAS SUPPOSED TO BE, IT GOT POSTPONED WITH EVERYTHING AND NOW WE'RE JUST WAITING ON THE NEW SIGN FOR THE PARK.

WE, UM, THEY, THEY TOLD US IT'D BE FOUR TO SIX WEEKS.

UH, WE ORDERED THE SIGN AND PUT THE DEPOSIT DOWN IT'S ABOUT A WEEK AGO.

SO WE'RE STILL ABOUT A MONTH OUT, PROBABLY FROM WHEN WE CAN EVEN THINK ABOUT SCHEDULING THAT.

OKAY.

OKAY.

YEAH.

ONCE I KNOW, I'LL LET YOU GUYS KNOW.

HEY JOSH, DO YOU LOVE FOR THE DOG PARK SPECIFICALLY? THE SIGN LANGUAGE CLEAR THAT DOGS ARE ONLY ALLOWED TO BE OFF THE LEASH, UM, INSIDE THE GATE AREA? UH, I DON'T, I DON'T HAVE IT IN FRONT OF ME.

WHAT EXACTLY THE SIGN SAYS.

I'D HAVE TO GO LOOK AT IT.

OKAY.

ALL RIGHT.

THANKS.

YUP.

OKAY.

ARE THERE ANY QUESTIONS FOR JOSH? NOPE.

OKAY.

JOSH, I'LL LOOK AT MY SCHEDULE.

I WOULD LIKE TO VOLUNTEER SINCE YOU SAID IT WAS IN THE EVENING, BUT IT MAKES THINGS A LOT EASIER FOR WORK.

SO, UM, I'LL GIVE YOU A CONFIRMATION TOMORROW MORNING.

L LET ME KNOW.

OKAY.

OKAY.

AND I WILL, I WILL BE THERE ON SATURDAY FOR ALL THREE EVENTS.

YOU'RE GOING TO HAVE A LONG DAY.

JUST LIKE ME.

JUST REMEMBER THE TWO OF THOSE EVENTS, TWO OF THOSE EVENTS ARE ESSENTIALLY AT THE SAME TIME.

EXACTLY.

YEAH.

THAT'S THE OTHER THING.

THAT'S THE OTHER THING TOO.

SO WE'RE TRYING TO GET VENDORS TO COME SHOW UP AT 8:00 AM AT THE FARMER'S MARKET.

SO WE CAN KIND OF SET UP AND HAVE A QUICK MEETING AHEAD OF TIME.

SO IF ANYBODY DOES WANT TO SHOW UP BEFORE 10 O'CLOCK AND JUST KIND OF HOPE, UM, WITH THE SETUP AND EVERYTHING, UH, WE COULD USE SOME HELP THERE AS WELL.

UM, WE DO HAVE A LADY BY THE NAME OF LAURIE HARTMAN.

SHE'S GOING TO BE OUR MARKET MANAGER.

UH, SHE'S GOING TO KINDA DEAL WITH ALL ISSUES AND STUFF WITH THE VENDORS AND ALL THAT.

AND, UM, KIND OF KEEP US IN TUNE WITH WHAT'S GOING ON WHEN WE CAN'T ALWAYS HAVE STAFF THERE.

OKAY.

WE DO HAVE A NINE OR 10 VENDORS SIGNED UP FOR SATURDAY AND WE HAVE A FEW MORE THAT MAY COME THE FOLLOWING WEEK.

THEY COULDN'T START THIS WEEK, BUT THEY SAID THEY COULD START THE 25TH.

SO I WOULD SAY, UM, I WOULD SAY WITHIN THE NEXT FEW WEEKS WE SHOULD BE APPROACHING 15.

OKAY.

ALL RIGHT.

ARE THERE ANY MORE COMMENTS QUESTIONS FOR JOSH? OKAY.

SO WE'LL GO AHEAD AND MOVE ON TO THE NEXT AGENDA ITEM HERE.

UH, AN UPDATE FROM CHRIS AT THE HEIGHTS PRODUCT CENTER AND STUFF.

YEAH.

SO THERE HASN'T BEEN MUCH GOING ON AT THE AQUATIC CENTER.

UM, AS YOU GUYS ARE PROBABLY AWARE.

UM, WE DID HAVE SOME, UH, A COUPLE OF CASES OF COVID, UH, POP UP IN STAFF RECENTLY.

UM, WE HAD, UM, UH, A COUPLE OF STAFF, UM, SHOW SYMPTOM, UM, OR ONE STAFF SHOW SIM, BOTH STAFF SHOWED SYMPTOMS THAT TESTED POSITIVE AFTER THEY WERE NOT AT WORK, GOT

[00:10:01]

TESTED, UH, BOTH SOURCES OF THE, UH, EXPOSURE CAME FROM OUTSIDE THE AQUATIC CENTER.

UM, SO WE FOLLOWED OUR YMCAS PROTOCOLS.

UM, STAFF WERE QUARANTINED, UM, ALL OF THOSE STAFF FROM THE, UH, FROM THE FIRST ONE, UM, YOU KNOW, HAVE COME BACK TO WE'LL COME BACK TO WORK.

UM, THE HARD PART IS NOW IS WE'RE, WE'RE DEALING WITH A, ANOTHER CASE THAT POPPED UP IN STAFF, UM, WHICH HAS SEVERELY HURT US.

UM, SO WE'RE WORKING THROUGH THAT.

UM, AND THEN WE FIND OUT TODAY THAT WE HAVE 10 STAFF THAT PLAY FOOTBALL FOR WAYNE HIGH SCHOOL.

UM, AND THAT HURTS US EVEN MORE SEVERELY.

SO WE ARE ACTUALLY GOING TO BE CLOSED, UM, SATURDAY AND SUNDAY OF THIS WEEK YET.

UM, SO THE AQUATIC CENTER WILL NOT BE OPEN THIS WEEKEND ON SATURDAY AND SUNDAY, WE WILL REOPEN ON MONDAY AT NOON.

UM, SO IT'S JUST, IT'S JUST THE WORLD WE LIVE IN RIGHT NOW.

UM, YOU KNOW, WE, WE HAVE, UH, PUT OUT, UH, A QUALITY PRODUCT THIS WEEK, EVEN THOUGH WE'VE BEEN SO SHORT STAFFED, UM, BUT LOOSEN 10 MORE ADDITIONAL STAFF THIS WEEKEND MADE IT SIGNIFICANTLY HARDER TO DO.

AND SO WE MADE THE DECISION TODAY TO CLOSE THE AQUATIC CENTER, UH, SATURDAY AND SUNDAY AND REOPENED ON MONDAY.

SO, UM, YOU KNOW, THE, THE CLARK CENTER REMAINS CLEAN, UM, IT'S DISINFECTED EVERY DAY.

UM, YOU KNOW, AND WE STILL HAVE PEOPLE COMING IN AND, AND, UH, VISITING US.

SO WE'LL GET THROUGH THIS WEEKEND AND THEN WE'LL BE BACK UP AND RUNNING.

UM, WE ARE LOOKING AT POSSIBLY EXTENDING THE SEASON OF SEVEN DAY, WEEK, SEVEN DAY A WEEK OPERATION BY AN ADDITIONAL TWO WITH, UH, SINCE HUBRIS CITY SCHOOLS ARE GOING BACK TWO WEEKS LATER, UM, WHICH IS SOMETHING THAT WE NORMALLY WOULDN'T DO.

UM, SO WE'RE KIND OF WORKING THROUGH THE LOGISTICS OF THAT RIGHT NOW, BUT, UM, YOU KNOW, UM, THE STAFF HAVE BEEN GREAT, UM, FOR THE MOST PART, COOL PATRONS HAVE BEEN GREAT.

UM, I KNOW OUR HEBREW RESIDENTS AND PASS HOLDERS HAVE REALLY LOVED THE, UH, MONDAYS AND WEDNESDAYS, UH, WHERE IT'S JUST THEM ONLY.

AND EVEN THE 12 TO ONE, UM, TUESDAY, THURSDAY, FRIDAY, SATURDAY, AND SUNDAY.

UM, YOU KNOW, A LOT OF OUR, UH, A LOT OF OUR CITY RESIDENTS ARE TAKING ADVANTAGE OF THAT TIME.

UM, MY HOPE IS THAT WE CAN ADD ANOTHER DAY NEXT YEAR JUST FOR RESIDENTS AND PASS HOLDERS.

UM, I'D REALLY LIKE IT TO BE POTENTIALLY A WEEKEND DAY, LIKE A SUNDAY.

UM, THEN WE COULD PROBABLY GET MORE RESIDENTS INTO THE POOL.

UM, YOU KNOW, I THINK AS, AS TAXPAYERS, THAT'S A, A GREAT OPPORTUNITY FOR THEM TO UTILIZE, UM, A CITY AMENITY THAT THEY, THEY HELP PROVIDE.

SO, UM, THAT'S THAT THE POOL OPERATIONS ITSELF ARE GOING REALLY WELL.

UM, WHEN YOU'RE THE ONLY GAME IN TOWN, YOU'VE GOT A LOT OF PEOPLE THAT ARE WANTING TO COME AND UTILIZE WHAT YOU GOT.

SO, UM, FROM A FINANCIAL STANDPOINT, I THINK IT'LL BE A GREAT SEASON FOR THE POOL.

UM, SO YEAH, OTHER THAN THAT, UM, IT'S A LITTLE CRAZY SOMETIMES, BUT EVERYTHING'S GOING WELL.

AND THE SHELTER RENTALS ARE STILL GOING WELL AS WELL.

THEY ARE, THEY HAVE PICKED UP A LITTLE BIT, I DON'T KNOW HOW THIS RECENT SPIKES GOING TO IMPACT EVERYTHING.

UM, BUT WE'RE, WE'RE STILL WAY BEHIND LAST YEAR.

WE WON'T CATCH UP TO IT.

UM, WE DID ADD A NEW, UM, ANOTHER NEW USER GROUP.

UM, JOSH GOT CONTACTED BY THE GREATER DAYTON FLAG FOOTBALL LEAGUE.

IS THAT RIGHT? JOSH? IS THAT WHAT IS, AND WE'VE GOT THEM SIGNED UP.

THEY'RE ACTUALLY RUNNING TWO SEASONS DOWN AT CLOUD PARK.

UM, AND I THINK THEY START HERE AT THE END OF THE MONTH, BEGINNING OF AUGUST.

UM, WE'VE GOT THEM TAKEN CARE OF FOR TWO SEASONS.

SO, UM, THAT'S SOMETHING THAT WE HAVEN'T HAD BEFORE DOWN THERE.

SO, UM, THEY PAID AND, AND WE GOT EVERYTHING PROCESSED AND THEY'RE READY TO GO.

AND I GUESS, WILL THERE BE ANY CONFLICT WITH ANY OF THE OTHER USER GROUPS CURRENTLY THE SPACE THAT WE PUT THEM IN IT, THEY WILL NOT IMPACT ANYTHING.

AND THEY WERE ALSO TOLD AHEAD OF TIME, TOO, THAT IF THE FALL CLASSIC WERE TO HAPPEN, THOSE, THOSE FIELDS MIGHT GET USED FOR THAT DEPENDING ON NUMBERS.

AND HE WAS UNDER, HE UNDERSTOOD.

AND HE TOLD US JUST TO KIND OF GIVE HIM A COUPLE OF WEEKS NOTICE IF WE KNOW THAT IT'S GOING TO HAPPEN AND THAT THOSE FIELDS ARE GOING TO BE USED.

SO HE WAS VERY UNDERSTANDING WITH THAT.

YEAH.

AND IT'S ADULT IT'S ADULT FLAG, ADULT FLAG FOOTBALL.

OKAY.

NOPE.

OKAY.

AND THAT RIGHT? YEAH.

THEY HAVE TEAMS, DAYTON FIRE DEPARTMENT, DADE POLICE DEPARTMENT, RIGHT.

PAT HAS A TEAM THAT PLAYS IN THEIR LEAGUE.

UM, I GOT, I THINK HE SAID

[00:15:01]

15 TEAMS IN THEIR LEAGUE THAT, UH, THAT GET TOGETHER REGULARLY.

SO, ALRIGHT.

THIS WILL BE, THIS'LL BE A GOOD YEAR.

ALL RIGHT.

UH, SO ANY QUESTIONS OR COMMENTS FOR CHRIS? UH, JOHNNY TO ONE A PANDEMIC EFFECT LAUREATE.

FUCK.

HAVE YOU HEARD ANY FEEDBACK FROM THEM? I HAVE NOT HEARD ANYTHING FROM WARRIOR.

UM, I THINK IT ALL DEPENDS.

UM, I BELIEVE THERE ARE SOME FALSE SPORTS THAT THE GOVERNOR HAS APPROVED, UH, FOR COMPETITION.

I DON'T KNOW IF SOCCER IS ONE OF THEM YET, BUT LIKE I KNOW TENNIS, GOLF, UM, VOLLEYBALL MIGHT BE ON THE LIST THAT'S BEEN APPROVED.

UM, BUT I THINK, UH, FROM THE SOCCER STANDPOINT, I DON'T KNOW IF IT'S BEEN APPROVED YET OR NOT.

BRIAN'S SHAKING HIS HEAD.

NO.

SO I'M GOING TO SAY NO RIGHT NOW.

UM, SO THAT, UM, YOU KNOW, STILL WAITING TO HEAR ON THAT.

UM, BUT I HAVE NOT HEARD FROM THE, THE WARRIOR, UH, SOCCER CLUB AT ALL ABOUT THE FALL CLASSIC.

I JUST KNOW THEY HAVE THE DATE, I HAVE THE DATE AND THAT'S ALL WE'RE AT RIGHT NOW.

OKAY.

ANY MORE QUESTIONS OR COMMENTS FOR CHRIS? ALRIGHT, SO GO AHEAD AND MOVE ON TO THE NEXT AGENDA ITEM, A NEW BUSINESS.

UH, THIS IS NUMBER ONE IS ACTUALLY A TWO TOPICS.

IT WAS MY MISTAKE.

I, UH, I HIT THE BACKSPACE KEY TOO MANY TIMES.

SO, UM, THE TREE BENCH, UH, MEMORIAL, UM, AS YOU GUYS, SOME OF YOU ALL MAY RECALL LAST YEAR, I STARTED TALKING ABOUT, UM, DEVELOPING OR REINSTITUTING THE MEMORIAL PROGRAM FOR THOMAS CALLED THE PARK AND PROBABLY THE OTHER PARTS AS WELL.

UM, SO WHAT I'M DOING NOW IS DRAFTING A PROPOSAL OR A CONCEPT, UM, TO PRESENT TO YOU OR, UH, ON, ON, ON THAT PROGRAM.

AND THEN ALSO, UM, YOU KNOW, THAT WILL ALSO INCLUDE SOME TYPE OF STANDARDIZATION, UM, AND RESPONSIBILITY OF BOTH, YOU KNOW, THE CITY AND THE INDIVIDUALS THAT DECIDE THAT THEY WOULD LIKE TO HAVE THAT, UM, YOU KNOW, PUT A MEMORIAL OR SOMETHING LIKE THAT WITHIN THE PARK SYSTEM.

UM, SO, UM, WHAT I'VE DONE IS I'VE ALREADY REACHED OUT, BUT THE FIRST THING IS I WOULD LIKE TO, UM, HAVE, UM, AND THAT HELPED ON THAT.

UM, I, HER, UM, HER EXPERIENCE WITH A SKILLSET WILL, WILL, WILL COME VERY WELL AND HAVE HELPING TO IDENTIFY SOME, UM, SOME AREAS THAT HELPED MAKE, UM, TO ASSURE THAT THAT AREA LOOKS GOOD AND REMAINS A LOOK GOOD THROUGH STANDARDIZATION AND STANDARDIZATION COULD INCLUDE ANYTHING FROM MOLT TO HOW THE PLANTS LOOK TO THE TYPE OF TREES THAT WE PUT IN AND ET CETERA.

UM, SO WE'LL REACH UP TO THE CITY TO GET THE TEMPLATE TREES THAT ARE ALLOWED IN THE PARTS AND SEE, YOU KNOW, HOW WE CAN DO THAT.

AND THEN WE'LL COME UP WITH A PROPOSAL AND THEN WE'LL PRESENT IT TO, TO EVERYONE ON THE BOARD, UM, FOR YOUR INPUT AND THEN ALSO FOR YOUR VOTE AND DECISION TO MOVE FORWARD AS WELL.

UM, I THINK THAT'LL BE A NICE ADDITION TO HAVE, UM, WITHIN THE CITY, UM, AND THE STANDARD.

AND SO, AND I'M LOOKING AT BOTH TREES AND BENCHES, BUT WE'LL HAVE TO COME UP WITH SOME TYPE OF SPECIFIC TYPE OF BENCH, UM, THAT WE WOULD LIKE TO HAVE ON THE WALKWAYS, ON THE PATHS ACROSS THE CITY.

SO, UM, SO THAT'S ONE OF THE IDEAS THAT I HAD.

UH, WERE THERE ANY QUESTIONS OR COMMENTS FOR THAT? I GOT ONE, I'VE GOT SEVERAL DIFFERENT CATALOGS, UM, THAT ARE OUR VENDORS WE USE REGULARLY AND CAN USUALLY GET US STUFF PRETTY QUICKLY.

SO IF YOU WANT ME TO PASS THOSE ON TO EITHER YOU OR ANNETTE VINCE, I CAN DO THAT.

UM, I WOULD SAY WITH ANY BENCHES, THEY NEED TO BE COMPOSITE, UH, CAUSE THEY LAST LONGER.

UM, AND I DO ALREADY HAVE A LIST OF TREES.

UM, I TOOK THE LIST THAT VANDELIA USED AND, AND WORKED WITH OUR ARBORISTS AND KINDA GOT WHAT WOULD, UH, DO BEST IN THE SITUATIONS WE HAVE IN THE PARKS.

CAUSE IN THE PAST WE'VE PLANTED SOME AND SOME HAVE DONE WELL AND SOME WITH NOT.

UM, AND THEN I ALSO HAVE A COMPANY THAT CAN GET US PLAQUES FAIRLY QUICKLY AND INEXPENSIVELY.

UH, WE JUST HAVE TO DECIDE IF WE WANT TO PUT THEM IN THE GROUND OR USE THE SPRING LOADED CLIPS AND WRAP THEM AROUND THE TREE.

BUT WHEN THE TIME COMES FOR ALL OF THAT, WE'VE, WE'VE DONE ALL THAT MATERIAL ON HAND.

GREAT.

THAT'S PERFECT.

THAT'S PERFECT.

UM, SO, AND THEN I'LL GET WITH YOU, UM, I'LL CALL AGAIN.

UM, AND THEN WE'LL START

[00:20:01]

MOVING FORWARD AND WE'LL FIND, I'LL FIND A WAY HOW TO GET THAT MATERIAL FROM JOSH.

SO THANKS JOSH.

SO, UM, ALRIGHT.

SO ARE THERE ANY OTHER QUESTIONS OR COMMENTS? OKAY, SORRY, ADAM, THAT I HAVE, OH, GO AHEAD.

I HAVE FOUND OVER THE YEARS WHEN YOU USE THE INDIVIDUAL PLAQUES AND THE ONES THAT GO AROUND THE TREES, THEY END UP GETTING DAMAGED AND LOST A LOT OF PARKS AND PLACES ARE PUTTING IN, IN AN AREA WHERE YOU HAVE A BUNCH OF TREES REMOVED MEMORIALIZING.

YOU HAVE A HUGE, YOU HAVE A, LIKE A FINE BOARD AND IT TELLS WHO DID WHAT, AND THOSE SEEM TO HOLD UP A LOT BETTER.

JUST SOMETHING TO THINK ABOUT.

OKAY.

THANK YOU, GLEN.

THANKS GLENN.

YOU'RE WELCOME.

ANY MORE QUESTIONS OR COMMENTS? OKAY.

AND GLEN, WE'RE DEFINITELY GOING TO USE OUR EXPERTISE AS WELL AT YOUR CONVENIENCE, SIR.

UM, SO THE NEXT ITEM I HAVE IS THE PROGRAM OR THE PROGRAM IDEAS.

I KNOW THAT WE'VE TALKED ABOUT A COUPLE IN THE PAST, BUT DUE TO COVID-19, UM, WE'VE HAD ISSUES, UM, WHERE, UM, SOME OF THOSE IDEAS HAVE TO BE, UM, DELAYED FOR A WHILE TILL NEXT YEAR DUE TO THEY REQUIRE CONTACT.

SO, UM, WHAT I WOULD, WHEN I'M POSING IS SOMETHING LIKE, UM, SO WE'VE ALREADY TALKED ABOUT DOING A, SOME TYPE OF TOUR WITH LYNN IN NEPAL FOR, FOR THE ARBORIST, THE NECK, THE METER PIECE.

UM, AND THEN WE'VE ALSO TALKED ABOUT, UM, SOME TYPE OF PHOTOGRAPHY CLASS OR NATURE PHOTOGRAPHY CLASS, UM, THAT JAY COULD POTENTIALLY OFFER.

UM, WE'VE ALSO TALKED ABOUT, UM, UH, UH, A SCAVENGER HUNT, UM, IN THE PARTS, BUT THEN, UM, I WANNA ALSO CONSIDER SOMETHING ELSE AS WELL.

UM, AND THAT'S A, UM, MAYBE A PHOTO CONTEST OF SOME SORT, UM, FOR THE FALL.

UM, WHEN WE CAN COME UP WITH A COUPLE OF IDEAS, HAVE BELTS GO OUT, TAKE PHOTOS OF, UH, OF THE LANDSCAPE OR DOING CERTAIN THINGS AND MOVEMENT, ET CETERA.

UM, AND THEN SUBMITTING THOSE TO THE CITY.

AND THEN WE ACTUALLY, YOU KNOW, WE LOOK AT THEM WHEN WE SELECT THE LITTLE TOP FIVE OR WHOMEVER THEN PERHAPS, UM, WE CAN FIGURE OUT A WAY TO HAVE THEM RECOGNIZED OR, UM, PROVIDE SOME TYPE OF PRIZES.

WHAT I DON'T KNOW IS JOSH, IF WE HAVE ANY FUNDS AVAILABLE FOR THAT, OR IF THAT'S SOMETHING THAT I SHOULD PROBABLY WAIT TILL NEXT YEAR, SO WE COULD THROW IT IN A BUDGET, UH, AS FAR AS PRIZES GO.

YEAH.

I'D SAY WAIT UNTIL NEXT YEAR.

UM, OKAY.

YEAH, THAT WOULD BE SOMETHING THAT WOULD PROBABLY BE BETTER TO FOR NEXT YEAR.

I, THE PROGRAMMING STUFF, I THINK WE CAN STILL DO, BUT AS FAR AS PRIZES GO.

OKAY.

SO, SO PERHAPS THEN WE CAN DO, YOU KNOW, WE COULD STILL DO THE CLASS, BUT THEN TO DO SOME TYPE OF RECOGNITION, LIKE AT A CITY MEETING OR SOMETHING LIKE THAT, YOU KNOW, FOLKS GO OUT, TAKE PHOTOS, TELL US WHAT YOU'RE DOING, SHOW US WHAT YOU'RE DOING IN OTHER PARKS.

UM, AND THEN DO A SCAVENGER HUNT ALL AT THE SAME TIME.

SO, UM, SO JAY, WOULD YOU BE ABLE TO WORK, UM, YOU KNOW, THE DETAILS ON THE PHOTOGRAPHY CLASS? JAY? I THINK YOU, YEAH, BUT HE'S ON A PHONE, SO I DON'T KNOW HOW TO GET THEM ON MUTED.

OH, THERE HE IS.

YEAH, THAT'S FINE.

YEAH.

WE CAN GET TOGETHER AND FIGURE IT OUT.

OKAY.

ALL RIGHT.

AND THEN, UM, I CAN COME UP WITH, YOU KNOW, A SCAVENGER HUNT OR SOMETHING LIKE THAT, BUT I THINK, UM, OFFERING SOMETHING LIKE THAT AND YOU CAN PROBABLY DO IT OVER ZOOM OR SOMETHING, UM, WHERE WE DON'T HAVE TO DO A LOT OF CONTACT.

OKAY.

EVENTS.

I THINK WE GET INTO FALL.

UM, MAYBE FINDING A WAY TO TAKE THE SMALL PUMPKINS AND, AND USE THOSE AS THE SCAVENGER HUNT, PAINT THEM AND HIDE THOSE AROUND THE PARKS.

UM, GRANTED SOME OF THEM MAY GET USED AS BASEBALLS AND SOFTBALLS AND THINGS LIKE THAT.

SO WE JUST ADAPT AND VAUGHN IT'S WHAT'S HAPPENED, BUT I THINK, YOU KNOW, IT KINDA LIKE HIDING THE ROCKS, BUT ON A LITTLE LARGER SCALE.

OKAY.

THAT'S, THAT'S A GREAT IDEA.

UM, I'LL WORK ON THAT AS

[00:25:01]

WELL.

OKAY.

ARE THERE ANY QUESTIONS OR ANY OTHER IDEAS THAT YOU GUYS WANT TO TRY AND DO FOR THIS YEAR? AND AGAIN, I'M NOT TRYING TO GIVE MORE WORK FOR JOSH.

SOME OF THIS I WOULD LIKE FOR US TO TAKE THE LEAD ON, UH, AT LEAST DID DEVELOP, UM, AND THE RULES, THE, YOU KNOW, AND, YOU KNOW, AND HELP HE DON'T SCATTER, YOU KNOW, THE PUMPKINS OR WHATEVER WE DECIDE OUT AMONGST THE PARKS.

UM, SO, UM, BUT THIS, I THINK A GREAT IDEA TO GET A LOT OF THE, THE YOUNGER STARTING TO YOUTH, AS WELL AS THE PARENTS THAT WE WENT OUT INTO THE PARK, YOU KNOW, AND HAVING FIGHT TOGETHER, UM, AND MAKE SURE OUR PARTS GET USED.

OKAY.

ARE THERE ANY QUESTIONS OR COMMENTS ON THAT? SOUNDS GOOD.

ALL RIGHT.

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

DOES ANYONE HAVE ANY THING ADDITIONAL, ANY ANNOUNCEMENT, MORE THING, UH, END OF THE MONTH, OUR BIG EVENT, UM, ON THE 31ST OR IT'LL BE OUR CONCERT NIGHT.

UM, I WAS MORE I'M WORKING WITH THE POLICE DEPARTMENT AND ALSO I'M A MEMBER OF THE MIAMI VALLEY MOUNTAIN BIKE ASSOCIATION.

AND MIKE, THIS IS FROM MIKE'S INDOOR BIKE PARK AND, UM, WE'RE GONNA MOVE THAT EVENT UP AN HOUR.

SO GO FIVE TO NINE INSTEAD OF SIX TO NINE.

UM, AND SINCE SCHOOL WILL BE STARTING BACK IN SOME TYPE OF FORMAT, WE'RE NOT REALLY SURE WHAT YET, BUT, UH, WE ARE THAT NIGHT GOING TO HAVE A BIKE RODEO, UM, WHERE WE'LL SET UP AN OBSTACLE COURSE.

THE PARKING LOT KIDS CAN BRING THEIR BIKES, KIND OF RUN THROUGH THE ONE LAKE, GETTING SOMEONE FROM THE MOUNTAIN BIKE ASSOCIATION IS A RIDE SAFE INSTRUCTOR, AND SHE WILL, UM, KIND OF RIDE WITH THE KIDS AND TALK TO THEM ABOUT SAFE WAY TO RIDE SCHOOL.

YOU KNOW, WHEN TO STOP, WHEN TO SIGNAL, YOU KNOW, MAKING SURE THEY'RE PAYING ATTENTION TO DRIVEWAYS, THINGS LIKE THAT.

UM, I'VE GOT A CALL IN TO DAYTON CHILDREN'S AND I'M, I'M WAITING TO HEAR BACK FROM THE FAMILY RESOURCE CENTER ABOUT MAYBE GETTING SOME HELMETS.

UM, I KNOW THEY PROBABLY CAN'T COME OUT AND DO THE HELMET FITTING LIKE THEY NORMALLY DO, BUT IF WE CAN MAYBE GET SOME DONATED FOR THAT EVENT, UM, AND WE'RE STILL TRYING TO FIGURE OUT HOW WE'RE GOING TO DO IT.

IF WE'RE GOING TO SET UP A, A KIND OF A QUICK REPAIR STATION WITH THE GUYS FROM MIKE'S BIKE PARK, UH, SET UP A BOOTH WHERE, YOU KNOW, A KID CAN DROP THEIR BIKE OFF, GO DO A DIFFERENT ACTIVITY, THEY'LL GIVE IT A QUICK ONCE OVER IT, TIGHT KNIT AND SEND IT BACK, YOU KNOW, HOW WE DO THAT.

AND YOU'LL PROBABLY HAVE TO WIPE THEM DOWN AFTER EACH TIME, WHATEVER, BUT DOING ALL OF THAT WHILE THE FOOD TRUCK AND WHILE THE CONCERT'S GOING ON.

SO THAT WAY, YOU KNOW, THE KIDS, YOU KNOW, THE PARENTS CAN SIT AND ENJOY THE MUSIC, POTENTIALLY WE'VE GOT ENOUGH ACTIVITIES GOING ON FOR THE KIDS.

UM, WE COULD USE MORE VOLUNTEERS FOR THAT AS WELL.

UM, YOU KNOW, YOU DON'T HAVE TO BE ON A BICYCLE, BUT JUST KIND OF BE THERE HELPING CORRAL KIDS AND, AND MAKING SURE THAT EACH STATION IS GETTING MOVED THROUGH.

OK.

UM, WHO'S TAKEN THE LEAD ON THE 31ST EVENT, YOU OR JERRY OR I AM, UM, IT'LL BE, WELL, THE CONCERT PART IS ALL OF US.

UM, AND THEN THE BEGINNING PART, I MEAN, IT'S ALL ONE EVENT, BUT I MEAN, AT THE BEGINNING PART WILL BE KIND OF SOMETHING EXTRA.

WE ADDED JUST, YOU KNOW, BECAUSE WE WEREN'T ABLE TO DO PARKS AND REC MONTH THIS YEAR, AND I STILL WANTED TO DO SOMETHING AT THE END OF THE MONTH.

UM, SARAH IS, UM, IS LOOKING AT WHAT, WITH CHANGES AND THINGS THIS YEAR, AS FAR AS LIKE BACK TO SCHOOL.

UM, WHAT'S THE WORD I'M LOOKING FOR SCHOOL SUPPLIES, YOU KNOW, IS IT MORE IMPORTANT TO HAVE REGULAR SCHOOL SUPPLIES OR IS IT MORE IMPORTANT TO HAVE, YOU KNOW, HAND SANITIZER AND THINGS LIKE THAT TO GIVE TO THE TEACHERS FOR CLASSROOMS? SO SHE'S LOOKING INTO THAT TO SEE WHAT WE CAN DO ABOUT, UM, YOU KNOW, COLLECTION STUFF FOR BACK TO SCHOOL AS WELL AT THAT EVENT.

OKAY.

WE DO HAVE, UH, SUSIE'S BIG DIPPER FOOD TRUCK.

UH, THEY SERVE, UH, HOT DOGS, HAMBURGERS AND ICE CREAM AND JUST OTHER AND MILKSHAKES.

I BELIEVE THEY'RE, EXCUSE ME, THEY'RE GOING TO COME THAT NIGHT AND SERVE FOOD FOR US AT THE EVENT.

AND, UM, THEN OF COURSE WE HAVE THAT BAND OUT OF NASHVILLE.

THAT'S, UH, THAT'S GOING TO BE PLAY IN THAT NIGHT AS WELL.

WHERE IS THAT AT? THAT'S AT THE AMPHITHEATER.

OKAY.

ALL RIGHT.

UH, ARE THERE ANY OTHER ITEMS, ADDITIONAL BUSINESS OR ANNOUNCEMENTS? OKAY.

HAS EVERYONE HAD THE OPPORTUNITY TO REVIEW THE MINUTES FROM JUNE 18TH? HEY, VINCENT.

YES.

YEAH.

I DIDN'T KNOW IF YOU WANT ME TO SAY SOMETHING ABOUT

[00:30:01]

LIKE, WHAT'S GOING ON WITH SOCCER, JUST A QUICK BRIEF SUMMARY.

UH, YEAH, SO RIGHT NOW, THE REASON WHY WE DON'T KNOW EXACTLY WHAT'S GOING TO WANT TO TALK RIGHT NOW, WE ARE ALLOWED TO, THERE ARE A LOT OF PRACTICE AT ENTER CLUB PRACTICE.

SO LIKE THE WARRIOR TEAMS ARE A LOT OF PRACTICE WITHIN THEMSELVES, BUT NOT PLAY OTHER TEAMS, YOU KNOW, OUTSIDE OF YOU, YOU KNOW, THE WARRIOR CLUB.

SO THAT'S JUST FOR PRACTICING.

WE WAS ACTUALLY HOPING THAT THING LAST NIGHT FROM DEWINE, OHIO, SOUTH WAS ALL EXPECTED.

ALL RIGHT.

THE 15TH WAS GOING TO BE TODAY BECAUSE HE MADE THAT ORDER FOR THE BASKETBALL TOURNAMENT TO PLAY.

THE, EVERYBODY HAS TO GET KOBE TESTED, YOU KNOW, MULTIPLE TIMES BEFORE, YOU KNOW, PARTICIPATING AND I FREAKED EVERYBODY OUT, BUT THEN WE REALIZED IT WAS FOR THE BASKETBALL TOURNAMENT.

SO THAT, OR IT ENDED YESTERDAY, WE AS EXPECTED, YOU KNOW, YESTERDAY OR TODAY FOR HIM TO SAY SOMETHING HE DIDN'T.

SO RIGHT NOW WE'RE JUST A LOT OF PRACTICE WITH EACH OTHER.

SO THAT'S PROBABLY WITH OFF LIKE FOOTBALL AND EVERYTHING RIGHT NOW.

SO WE'RE JUST WAITING PATIENTLY WAITING.

SO IT'S STILL UP IN THE AIR.

OKAY.

THANK YOU.

ALL RIGHT.

SO, UM, WE'LL GO BACK TO THE MINUTES HERE.

HAS EVERYONE HAD THE OPPORTUNITY TO REVIEW THE MINUTES? WOULD YOU MAINTAIN A YES.

OKAY.

SO, UM, IF THERE ARE NO CHANGES, THEN THE MINUTES WILL BE APPROVED AS WRITTEN.

SO IF THERE ARE NO BREAKS, AS THE MINUTES WILL BE APPROVED AS, ARE THERE ANY OBJECTIONS? OKAY.

THE MINUTES ARE APPROVED.

UH, OUR NEXT MEETING IS GOING TO BE AUGUST 20TH AT 6:30 PM.

AND WHAT I WAS TRYING TO DO AND WORKING WITH JOSH AND CHRIS DO THE SAME THING.

UM, IF WE'RE GOING TO BE VIRTUAL, WE'LL LET YOU KNOW.

BUT ALSO NOTE THAT, UM, TOO, DON'T FORGET TO TRY AND LOG IN AT ABOUT SIX 20.

THAT WAY WE CAN VERIFY, YOU KNOW, EVERYONE'S SYSTEMS ARE WORKING.

UM, SO IT IS NOW SEVEN OH FIVE.

UM, IS THERE A MOTION TO ADJOURN? OKAY.

SECOND.

ALL ALRIGHT.

UH, GLENN, THANK YOU.

UH, SO IT'S SEVEN OH FIVE.

THIS MEETING'S ADJOURNED.
