The Chairperson and Board Members met in a Special Meeting for the purpose of obtaining information regarding the architectural plans, scope of work, and associated estimates of work to be accomplished with the park renovation. Marie Gregoire presented information to the Board and Public regarding the project management of the park renovation. Items discussed included a landscape plan; additional equipment; trail improvement and accessibility; electricity upgrades to the park including the shelter; and the December 31, 2019 contractual end date. The park comprehensive plan will be completed next winter, in order that construction could begin June 2017 on the playground renovation.
Chairperson Wray noted there would be no public comment at this meeting as it was for information purposes only. A resident disrupted the meeting and was asked to leave. This person walked up to Wray, pulled her shoulder to her, and whispered loudly in Wray’s ear regarding what type of person she was. There were witnesses near Wray to confirm what was said. The resident then left the meeting as asked.
