Why does the City need jurisdiction at Old Mill Park? Is it anticipated a skate park will attract some need for the police? The Sheriff and City have and agreement that City Police will respond to troubled areas upon request. The Park District has legal authority to regulate activities on district properties.

Helle Park is ot subject to flood. rain events do create standing water that soon disipatesinto the sandy soil.

Rest rooms are already availble at Old Mill Park.
Parking is avaialble at the park.
Rest areas are available for parents to watch over their children.

Water fountains are available at the park also
Mosquito control is reduced by regular weed control - the Portland area has acres of weeds and brush, not memtion a small drainage ditch that provides a haven for mosquitos.

Lighting is also available at Old Mill Park.

Will the Portland Avenue site become a Park underCity or Park District control?

Has the City agree to provide periodic vegatatio control, lighting, water service for the proposed rest room facalities and other general maintenance to the site i.e. refuse collection, periodic site cleaning, liability insurance (certainly the RR wil want to protect themselves form liabilites associated with skate parks and who will remove the graffiti and repae vandelism incidents.

The Old Mill Park has been in existance long enough for most ares residents to know where it is and directing your frends for remote areas should not be a problem directing them to the park. Even Santa finds it to visit the grounds keeper.
