PURPOSE

 

The purpose of this M & C is to discuss and possibly approve the construction of a 30' x 50' pavilion on the vacant lot at the corner of Peachtree and Poss Roads.

 

The City owns and operates the Leon Valley Community Pool, located at 6600 Strawflower Street. Adjacent to this pool is a remaining vacant lot that has been used in the past to park vehicles for the Fourth of July Celebration. The rest of the year, the lot sits vacant and is just mowed and maintained by Public Works.

 

We are proposing to construct a pavilion on this site, which would allow rental for pool parties or for other party type events. The Community Pool does not have a separate space for parties, as does the Forest Oaks Pool, and party goers have to share the pool grounds with the other members when hosting a party during pool operating hours. The pavilion could also be offered for rent to persons wishing to hold a birthday or other event, outside of pool activities. The fee for usage would be the same as the rental fee for the large pavilion at Raymond Rimkus Park.

Social Equity - Providing the citizens with additional park amenities adds to the overall quality of life.

 

Economic Development - Increasing available park facilities may entice more residents, which would attract more businesses to either stay in or relocate to Leon Valley.

 

Environmental Stewardship - Parks and park facilities are critical in the role of preserving natural resources that have real economic benefits for communities. Installing park facilities provides opportunities to get children outside and provides education & programming that help communities engage with each other.
