At the city board meeting on Tuesday City Administrator Brenda Colter presented some new elements of park policy. One aspect deals with whether or not some of the larger events need a special use permit.
“So once we determine that then it will be an application that they will fill out. If it falls within the perimeters of our policy then there won’t be any need for them to come to the Board of Alderman for approval as the board’s already approved the policy for them to follow and for us to carry it out.,” Colter says.
With more and larger events, the City Park Board is asking to meet more often.
“The park usually we’d meet once a year and we would go over the budget with them, but we’ve pretty much exhausted everything that was on the five year plan.”
The city ahs been approached about a Frisbee gold course and other additions. Colter says the city wants input.
“They would like to get input from the community and, themselves, they’re a cross section of our citizens in town and persons who have interest in the park, and that brings that cross section in and find out, what would they like to have in our park? So I think that’s where that’s coming from that as we budget we’ll have a plan to follow.”
The city approved the request from a local man on Tuesday to look at the feasibility of a nine hole Frisbee golf course on the property off north highway 5.
