County supervisors this week unanimously approved a plan for Bles Park that had raised environmental concerns from environmental groups, neighbors and the Planning Commission.

The 132-acre park follows the Broad Run nearly to Rt. 7, widening out at the creek mouth of the Potomac River and home to four soccer fields as well as wetlands, trails, and a playground. The county now has plans to expand the park and its amenities with more playgrounds, skate spots, a canoe and kayak boat launch, a dog park, tennis and pickleball courts. and additional parking. The park may also see a walk through the wetlands in the future, although this is not yet funded.

The county’s plans for the park had raised concerns among environmental groups and some neighbors. These concerns also earned the proposal a negative vote from the Planning Commission, which concluded that it ran counter to the County’s 2019 Comprehensive Plan and would destroy the habitats of rare and sensitive plant and animal species found in the park. In response to these concerns, the commission also took the unusual step of voting on the recommendation that the oversight board work to develop in-house expertise on wildlife biology, natural ecosystems, and native plant and animal communities, and seek out alternatives for plans. for parking and other facilities.

As a result of this vote, county staff revised their plans, slightly decreasing the impervious area and planned structures, adding an additional acre of tree conservation area, removing a proposed maintenance facility and five clubhouses and moving planned mixed-use land closer to existing construction. and parking.

Environmental concerns remained, however, with some people coming to the January 18 meeting of the supervisory board to oppose the project. One pointed to the irony that that same night supervisors voted to approve a new tax on single-use plastic bags, which council supporters described as an environmental measure.

Loudoun Wildlife Conservancy executive director Michael Myers called Bles Park’s decision a “big mistake”.

“Given that Loudoun is experiencing such growth, it is possible that our growth will have a tangible positive impact on wildlife. Our vision is for Loudoun to be a place where people and wildlife thrive together,” said Myers. “Bles Park is one of those places.”

A neighbor, John Henschel, asked supervisors to consider environmental impacts such as increased runoff into the creek.

“To board members who don’t go out to the parks, I submit that you can also see nature, you just don’t think about it,” he said. “So when the screensaver comes up on your computer or on your TV, is that a picture of a pickleball court? Is that a picture of a dog park or a football? No, it’s a picture of a river, a meadow, and why? Because we as humans find it relaxing and meaningful.

Some members of the county’s Parks, Recreation and Open Spaces Board also came out to speak in support of the project.

“One of the things we’ve learned over the past two years is the importance of having safe and healthy ways to be entertained outdoors,” said Erik Scudder. “For me, the Bles Park program to renovate the park is really doing a great job of that.”

But supervisors defended the project, approving it in a unanimous vote, pointing to remediation as a two-for-one tree replanting plan, removal of invasive species and an agreement to find a new route for the boardwalk if a future review finds it. would have an impact on endangered species.

Endangered species have previously been reported on the property, including the nearby white trout lily pad and the on-site wood turtle.

“My constituents are tired of having to travel to other counties or across town to take their kids to practices, get to a dog park and find land to play the wildly popular game of pickleball,” Juli said. E. Briskman, District Supervisor (D-Algonquin).

County Chair Phyllis J. Randall (D-At Large) said some of the work was needed to address safety issues, with people parking along the street and crossing the street to access the park . And she wondered about the accessibility of wild spaces to the disabled.

“I think one thing we don’t do well in this county in terms of our natural environment, we don’t do a great job of making it accessible to the ADA,” Randall said. “The one and only reason I like the parkway area is that if you have a different ability it’s hard to really enjoy our nature preserves in this county. …I don’t know what the answer to that is, because you wouldn’t want to destroy the environment while making it accessible to people with different abilities.

She called on groups like Loudoun Wildlife Conservancy to engage with the County Board of Supervisors and the Disability Services Board to find answers.

Supervisors approved the park 9-0 on January 18. Subsequently, the county government issued a press release through official channels promoting the decision.

“The thorough review of the plan by council, the planning commission and county staff ensures that the natural setting of the undeveloped sections of the park will be maintained and that the improvements adopted reflect the best possible options for a park that has been built nearly 30 years ago with active and passive recreation opportunities in mind,” the press release reads.

A vacant hostel on South Lakeshore Boulevard has become the main relocation site for the Waller Creek Boathouse, a popular water recreation center on the shores of Lady Bird Lake.

In the decade since its opening, the city-owned boathouse has served people looking to relax on the lake in a rented boat and has been home base for some of the city’s best competitive rowers. city.

But the Waller Creek Boathouse has fallen in the way of one of the biggest infrastructure projects in Austin’s history: Project Connect, a $7 billion public transit extension that includes a light rail line intended directly for the installation of 10,800 square feet.

The Blue Line must travel from Austin-Bergstrom International Airport to downtown Republic Square Park. The light rail line will cross Lady Bird Lake on a yet to be constructed transit bridge and enter an underground tunnel near the boathouse location at 74 Trinity Street.

The location at 2200 South Lakeshore Blvd. is one of six locations identified by city staff as possible new sites for the boathouse.

The South Lakeshore Boulevard site was the only location that met all of the city’s criteria, including being large enough and close enough to the shore. The site is also far enough from other water recreation facilities to help ease congestion on Lady Bird Lake, staff said.

This map produced by the city shows the six sites considered as alternatives for the boathouse.

Sites one and two are just west and just east of the MoPac Bridge, respectively. Both are on an old dump and would not be easily developed. They are also considered risky because the locations could conflict with either long-term plans being developed for Zilker Park or the Central Texas Regional Mobility Authority’s proposed MoPac South toll lane, which could expand the MoPac bridge.

The third site featured is a baseball diamond used by Austin High School through an agreement between the city and the Austin Independent School District. This land is near the Texas Rowing Center and a popular boat launch. Going with that location would require finding an alternate site for the ballpark, staff said.

The fourth location is closer to the Waller Creek Boathouse. But the Trail Foundation, in cooperation with the city, is in the licensing phase of a plan to build family-friendly park amenities in this area. Construction is expected to begin later this year.

The fifth potential boathouse site is near the old Holly Power Station at Festival Beach. But there is already a long-term plan for this area dating back to 2009. Changing the “vision plan” to include a boathouse would require a new round of community engagement and a city council vote. The site also lacks sufficient utilities at this time, staff said.

There remains the sixth site: a youth hostel which closed its doors during the pandemic. The building is currently vacant and would require major renovations, but could accommodate a 7,000 square foot facility, city officials said.

A city map showing key locations around the youth hotel site

City staff presented this map highlighting the existing facilities around the old hostel.

The site currently has a canoe rental business which could be incorporated into the new boathouse. There is a small parking lot nearby and street parking along South Lakeshore Blvd.

The location at 2200 South Lakeshore Blvd. also responds to the City’s desire to distribute aquatic leisure facilities more equitably along the Lady Bird Lake waterfront.

The process of choosing a new location for the boathouse is still in its early stages. The city says it will consider public comments when making a final decision.

STERLING HEIGHTS – The year 2022 has just started, but Sterling Heights already has its eye on the future of the city’s parks and recreation facilities.

At its Jan. 4 meeting, Sterling Heights City Council unanimously adopted a new Parks, Recreation and Non-Motorized Vehicle Master Plan that will cover a wishlist of ideas and items for next five years.

During his presentation, the director of parks and recreation, Kyle Langlois, said his department develops a master plan every five years, and that this new plan focuses on 2022-2026. In order to make the master plan, the city began preparations over 15 months ago, Langlois said.

This new master plan follows the completion of the recreational recreation initiative that voters narrowly approved in 2016, which renovated the park’s amenities and built new destinations like the skate park, wading pool, park for dogs, the community center and the Dodge Park Farmers Market Pavilion.

“While we have undoubtedly transformed our community over the past five years, I again look forward to advancing our city in the recreation area using this overview of our department’s position and a number of new goals. to achieve, ”he said.

Adam Young, senior project manager at consulting firm Wade Trim, who worked on the master plan, said the parks’ latest master plan resulted in many successful projects that have grown thanks to Recreating Recreation.

“This really follows the success of the recreational recreation program that was launched in 2016,” he said. “We want, once again, to build on this momentum. ”

Young said the five-year action plan is a guide and decision-making document that “is not set in stone,” does not commit the city to any project, and is an “intentionally ambitious” laundry list. He added that the Michigan Department of Natural Resources requires municipalities to establish these master plans in order to qualify for certain state grants.

The investigation and the action program
In creating the report, the city would have taken into account its facilities, demographics, leisure trends and accessibility, among others. Last year, the city also administered a resident survey of 920 respondents. Not all respondents answered all of the questions.

According to the report, this survey found that about 84.3% of respondents rated the parks department’s offerings as excellent or good. For recreation programs and facilities, 39.2% of respondents thought they were “a little more needed” and 38.4% thought they were currently sufficient.

However, 55.8% thought the number of parks was enough, while 26% thought a little more was needed. If another park needed to be built, 30.7% wanted it to be in the southeast quadrant, followed by 29.1% for the northeast quadrant.

The top five activities of interest to survey respondents going forward are canoeing, swimming, archery / shooting, fishing and cross-country skiing.

Among the most popular recreational facilities, indoor pools were the most popular item with 64.7%. The city currently has an agreement with Warren that allows residents to have access to the Warren community pool at its resident rates, Langlois said, although he added that Warren only reopened the pool after COVID- 19 to holders of annual or monthly passes.

Young said the five-year action program aims to add park equipment such as picnic tables, benches, bike racks and new athletic fields. The plan also prioritizes non-motorized improvements such as filling voids on sidewalks, establishing and improving the state-wide Iron Belle Trail route through the city, creating a ” shared use trail extensions used by cyclists and pedestrians, and improved signage and safety.

In addition, the plan also contemplates the acquisition of land for other properties in the park. For example, the former site of Fillmore Elementary School is listed as a good location for a neighborhood park, if it is acquired by the city.

The board reacts
When the city council gave the presentation, Mayor Pro Tem Liz Sierawski was excited about the idea of ​​securing grants for future projects.

“It’s not necessarily free money, but it’s definitely an opportunity for us to get our money’s worth,” she said.

City Councilor Michael Radtke called the report “excellent”. Among the things he discussed, he wanted a sidewalk connecting Baumgartner Park and a better way for neighboring residents to access Moravian Park. He also said he wanted to see a community park in the 15 Mile Road and Van Dyke area, and expressed interest in reallocating the Fillmore Elementary School site for this purpose.

Radtke also inquired about the park lands the city owns near the Red Run Drain, near Moravian Drive and Schoenherr Road. In the master plan, Red Run Park is described as an “open, undeveloped space consisting of 15.2 acres of land.”

“Is it marked? Radtke said. “I don’t even know if… people know we have a park there. So if we could put, for example, a sign in front of it or something to let residents know that this is actually their property and that they can use it, I think that would be fascinating.

City Councilor Maria Schmidt said nothing in the master plan was set in stone, but rather a wish list. She said she had received phone calls and texts to find out if the town had already acquired the Fillmore property.

“It’s definitely in our plan, but there’s no deal in the order at the moment,” Langlois said. “In fact, we would need to get funding to even be able to do that, through grants, which would be one of our fundraising mechanisms. … We would be two years away from that.

Langlois said the Fillmore site is a potential opportunity since the town does not have a park in this area. He added that it would be desirable for the city to acquire some green space near 17 Mile Road – near Utica and Schoenherr Roads – for conservation purposes.

Councilor Deanna Koski asked about the Sterling Relief Trail, a proposed non-motorized path that could run east to west along the Sterling Relief Drain between 15 Mile Road and the Metropolitan Parkway. Langlois said it was included in the plan as a “potential opportunity”, and the report itself states “that there is no intention on the part of the City to pursue this project at this time. “.

Langlois also described a preferred option for the Iron Belle Trail connecting road through town. While the report states that the Clinton River Trail system is currently part of the Iron Belle, Langlois said the town hopes to continue the Iron Belle route south of Dodge Park, which will connect to Warren. He said he would prefer the road go through Baumgartner Park and then connect to Dodge Park Road via 15 Mile Road.

Mayor Michael Taylor wanted to know if there were plans for a disc golf course within two to five years, adding that “we’ve been talking about it for over a decade.”

Langlois said the plans collapsed over differences of opinion. He said the original plan used a space in Puffin Park to operate it, so he would like the city to make improvements to Puffin Park before reassessing any nine-hole disc golf plan.

The parks master plan is expected to be submitted to the Michigan MNR by February 1.

New trail improvements are nearing completion at Rosen Park, the result of creative actions by members of the Parks and Recreation Department.

Following renovations at the Fort Worth Zoo, the Parks and Recreation Department acquired several bridges that the zoo no longer needed. As part of a project to add new concrete pathways to the park, one of the reused bridges was fitted with a new composite deck and installed over a drainage channel in Rosen Park.

“Rosen Park in District 2 is shared by the historic areas of North Beverly Hills and Far Greater Northside,” said Carlos Flores, District 2 council member. park and encourage healthy activities. I appreciate the staff at Park & ​​Recreation working with my office to make these necessary improvements.

The new 720 linear foot trail offers much needed neighborhood connectivity from 23rd and Capri streets and is ADA compliant.

The entire project, from design to construction, was carried out in-house by the Parks and Recreation Small Capital Projects team for $ 40,000. The trail should be ready for public use by mid-January.

Rosen Park is located at 2200 McCandless Street.

A new amenities unit for popular Elston Park is taking shape, and work is expected to be completed in a few weeks. Dubbo Regional Council recreation and open spaces director Ian McAlister said construction on the new facility, which costs $ 315,000, began in early December. The equipment unit will include two unisex mobile toilets, one unisex accessible toilet, a changing room and a disabled toilet with an automatic sliding door. Work was currently suspended during the holiday period, which had allowed the playground and water park to be open during the Christmas holidays, McAlister said. Work would resume in mid-January and construction is expected to be completed in late January or early February, he said. The project provides work for local and regional businesses. The successful bidder was Pureablue, located at 54 Seaton Street, Armidale NSW, McAlister said. It supplied the prefabricated unit and hired local suppliers for the earthworks, concreting, electrical and plumbing works, he said. The council also hired local contractors to undertake associated work including Bob Cats R Us for earthworks, Porters Plumbing and Gas Fitting for plumbing, Macquarie Electrical for electrical, Josh Semmler Building Projects Dubbo for construction work. concrete, Dubbo Landscaping for the granite road works and Scott McNamara. Dubbo landscaping for lawn work. Mr McAlister said the existing facility on the east side of the park is nearing the end of its useful life and once the new unit is commissioned, planning for its closure and removal will begin. “The removal of existing amenities is also the result of recent signage work at the intersection of Cobra and Fitzroy streets,” he said. “Due to the construction, there is a limited number of parking spaces along Fitzroy Street for people to access amenities. This was part of the decision to move amenities closer to the playground and water park. “The removal of equipment will be uploaded to the supplier panel so that local contractors can submit quotes for the work. The project is funded under the Playground Improvement Program and Disability Inclusion Program to provide better access to equipment, playground and water in the park through the provision of a system of connected paths. “Disabled parking on Gipps Street has also been provided as part of this overall project, and it is expected to be delivered within budget.”
