This neighborhood desperately needs a place for children and this small parcel would make a perfect site for a "pocket park". Please vote yes and support this purchase. Thank-you, Sincerely, r, ~~ ~~ ~~w~ Cindy Bagaus and Diane Ward 798 Hartford Dr. Boulder, CO 80303 ~. Kazen and Joe Boazdman ' ~ 2935 Bayior Dr. ~`'"' Boulder, CO 80305 July 20, 2000 Chris Dropinski, Director The Pazks and Recreation Advisory Boazd 3198 Broadway Boulder, CO 80304 Deaz Mr. Dropinski, We aze writing to encourage you to support the Pazks and Recreation Department in creating a pocket pazk in our neighborhood by purchasing the Mesa Memorial Baptist Church property bordering Table Mesa, Yaie, and Hartford roads. The Mesa Memorial property is in an ideal location for a pocket pazk, as the neighborhood North of Table Mesa and West of Broadway is underserved by the Pazks and Recreation Department at this time. To reach a pazk, residents must either cross Table Mesa and walk at least one mile to Hazlow Platt Pazk or walk a minimum of one-half mile along Table Mesa and across Broadway to reach Martin Acres Pazk. A pocket park on the Mesa Memorial site would serve as a neazby, easily and safely accessible pazk for the children and parents living in the neighborhood. ~ <.,. A pocket pazk on the Mesa Memorial propeRy will also enhance the ciry, as it is in line with Boulder's desire to have open space and parks for both recreational use and aesthetic value. It would promote community. It would preserve one of the few open areas left along Table Mesa. It would serve the children who now have too faz to go to play in a playground by their home. We hope you will encourage the Pazks and Recreation Advisory Boazd to buy the Mesa Memorial land and create a pocket park for our neighborhood. Sincerely, ,~q/~iCec ~oar~rna~~, c~ e-~3~ Kazen Lee Boardman Joe Boazdman ~"" David & Jennifer Perlick 720 Yale Road Boulder, CO 80303 July 28, 2000 Parks & Rec. Advisory Boazd c/o Chris Dropinski, Dir. Parks & Rec. Dept. 3198 Broadway Boulder, CO 80304 Re: Mesa Memorial Property Pocket Park - Table Mesa / Yale Rd. Dear Mr. Dropinski, We live at 720 Yale Road, just a few houses north of the Mesa Memorial Property. Like C many of ow neighbors, we strongly support the City's proposal to purchase the properry for a pocket pazk in accord with the fund established by voters in 1998. As pazents of an young child, we believe that a park at this site would provide an excellent outlet for children and adults living in the area, who otherwise must travel across Table Mesa to the South Boulder Recreation Center, or across Broadway to Martin Park. We hope the City will follow through on the proposed purchase and create a pocket pazk at the Mesa Memorial site. ' cerely, ~ David & Jennifer Perlick
