RECOMMENDATION

 

Staff recommends that the Parks, Recreation and Community Services (PRCS) Commission schedule a 2022 PRCS Commission Tour of Culver City Parks and Facilities.

 

 

BACKGROUND/DISCUSSION

 

On June 7, 2022, the Commission requested that a discussion regarding scheduling a 2022 Tour of Culver City Parks and Facilities (Parks Tour) be added to the August 2, 2022 meeting agenda.  After consideration, staff is recommending that the Commission select five of the parks or facilities listed below for the 2022 Parks Tour.

 

1.                     Blair Hills Park

2.                     Blanco Park

3.                     Carlson Park

4.                     Coombs Parkette

5.                     Culver City Park

6.                     Culver West Alexander Park

7.                     El Marino Park

8.                     Fox Hills Park and Fox Hills Parkette

9.                     Lindberg Park

10.                     Syd Kronenthal Park

11.                     Tellefson Park

12.                     Veterans Memorial Park and the facilities therein, including the Veterans Memorial Building, the Plunge and the Teen Center

13.                     Veterans Memorial Complex, including the Veterans Memorial Building, Teen Center and Senior Center

 

The length of the Parks Tour will be determined by which parks the Commission wishes to visit, their proximity to each other, and the estimated travel time between them.  A start time of 9:00 AM is recommended but this can be adjusted based on the availability of Commission members.  PRCS staff is available to host the Parks Tour on any one of the following Saturdays in October 2022:

 

                     Saturday, October 1, 2022

                     Saturday, October 8, 2022

                     Saturday, October 15, 2022

                     Saturday, October 22, 2022

 

The Recreation Van may be used to drive some of the participants to the sites.  Otherwise, carpooling is encouraged.  As in past years, the Parks Tour will be a Special Meeting of the PRCS Commission which will be noticed and open to the public.  If members of the public wish to attend, they must provide their own transportation.

 

Once the locations have been selected for the Parks Tour, staff is requesting that Commission members submit questions that they have related to those parks via email two weeks before the tour date.  Staff will then be prepared to answer these questions during the Parks Tour.

 

 

FISCAL IMPACT

 

While a one-day Parks Tour will have an impact on PRCS Department staffing and budgetary resources, it is expected to be nominal.

 

 

ATTACHMENTS

 

None.

 

 

MOTIONS

 

That the Parks, Recreation and Community Services Commission:

 

Schedule a 2022 PRCS Commission Tour of Culver City Parks and Facilities.
