  • attended by Steering Committee, Dave Ringstrom, Andy Sheffer

  • Met first at Soundview Park to walk through and point out re-grading of SW slope, location for possible open-air shelter, path behind tennis courts to connect north stairway to existing path.

  • Adjourned to Jean’s house to go over park schematic and discuss specific points:

  • Re-grading – everyone agrees this needs to happen to some extent to improve visibility, cut back slope from wading pool (dangerous, too steep for children to walk up).  Some dissension regarding extent of re-grading, would we get cost-benefit.  Proposed to include entire re-grade plan on design concept to be presented at 3rd Public Meeting for general discussion.

  • Picnicking – we generally agree that picnicking is an important activity for park users.  Picnicking should occur on the lower level of the park where children can be retrieved easily.  Discussion of adding green space around wading pool and central to play areas.  Benches should also be installed.

  • Picnic Shelter – Still some disagreement within the group whether a shelter is necessary because of the potential for harboring inappropriate after-hours activities.  Look into shelter problems at other parks with new installations.  Size should be 4 – 6 tables. Should be located within easy access of parking area, should include storage area for Summer Parks Program.  Proposed to show shelter on design concept to be presented at 3rd Public Meeting for general discussion.

  • Skateboard area – Play areas we generally agree to include are for toddlers, 2 – 10 yr olds and swings for all.  Not everyone agrees that we should include skate play.  Proposed to remove skateboard area from design and replace with notion of some teen age-appropriate piece of play equipment.

  • Paths – plan to expand paths allowing access for strollers and ADA.  Paths can be constructed from crushed materials that will discourage skate activities, but still allow other wheeled access.

  • Spray Play – Agreed to include some sort of water feature in conjunction with or replacing current wading pool.

  • Parking – Parks believes this is an auxiliary topic to be reviewed separately.

  • Park design concept #4 to be posted on Soundview web site and in park prior to Jan. 10, 2002 meeting.

  • Parks Dept. will help with mass-mailing prior to Jan. 10, 2002 meeting.

  • Next meeting set for Jan. 7, 2002, time and location to be determined.

12/4/01 - Steering Committee Meeting

  • New members have joined the Steering Committee to give representation of the neighbor groups that live immediately adjacent to Soundview Park.

  • Wayne concerned over environmental impact of re-grading slope and impact it may have on neighbors.

  • Jean and Carol support the renovation of the toddler play area but do not want to expand the play experience to include older children.

  • The current Steering Committee has been devoted to creating a play experience to include all age ranges in order to maximize usage of the park.

  • Further discussion needs to be entertained regarding the notion of picnicking (how much and where?), teen use of park, how to mitigate the impact of changes on adjacent neighbors, how to incorporate these new opinions into an acceptable design for the park.

  • Meeting date set for onsite discussion of environmental changes and how this will affect the topography of the park. Immediately following we will adjourn to Jean's home to review schematic of the park with moveable representations of equipment to facilitate the visualization process.
