BACKGROUND: Staff is pmceeding with a playground area renovaaon pro~ect at Wonderland Lake Pazk ttus yeaz, as part of a contmued process to upgrade older playgrounds and bring them into compliance with current safety standards. Staff held a neighborhood open house meetuig at Wonderland Lake Park playground m September 2002 reguding the proposed renovation and then held a follow-up public design review in December. At the open house, a neighbor named Kathryu Hendrick approached staff and mquired about how she could donate a shelter to the ciry in memory of her daughter, Allison. The memoriai donauon request met policy requuements and staff worked with Ms. Hendnck to deternune the desired pro~ect and level of donation. ANALYSIS: CODE: The Boulder Revised Code addresses gifts and donatrons m Article I Sec 2(c} wluch states that the City of Boulder: "may recexve bequests, gifts, and donations of all kinds of property, with or without condit~ons, or m fee simple, or in trust for pubhc, chantable, or other purposes; and do all thmgs and acts necessary to carry out the purpose of such gifts, bequests, and donations> with power to manage, "M" sell, lease, or otherwise dispose of the satne in accordance with the terms of [he gift bequest, or ~"" trust " AGENDA ITEM # VI -B ; PAGE i POLICY• The Parks and Recreation Memor:al Donahon Policy states that~ ~ "Memonal donations that are large in scale are generally not encouraged To the extent that projects ofthis nature are consistent w~th pazk planning processes they may be considered on a case-by-case basis. Donors may contact the department to discuss theu ideas." The consLderation of a shade shelter was consistent with the pazk planmng process for the Wonderland Lake Pazk play area renovatron. The desire for shade in our pubhc pazks and specifically shade associated with play areas is a common request at our pubhc design review meeungs, mcluding the Wonderland Pazk Play area Open House meetmg. In response to an open- ended queshon in the most recent Pazks and Recrea6on Ciuzen Survev, a number of people wrote m comments that our pazk system "needs more trees/ not enough shade." While tree plantings represent the ideal solutron m temis of cost and azea shaded, shade structures are pmvided at our larger park play areas or at neighborhood pazk play azeas based on funding availabihty. The Wonderland Park play azea renovakion budget did not support the provision of a shade structure. The generous donation of $35,000 for a shade shucture offered a welcome enhancement for the renovaaon pro~ect Staff inet with Ms. Hendrick to ident~fy a mutually agreeable design solution and donation amount. Ms. Hendrick provided a letter of agreement to donate $35,000 for the proposed shelter. Please see Attachment A: Shelter ponation Letter of Agreement. PUBLIC COD'IlVIENT AND PROCESS: ~ Public comment was obtained at the Wonderland Park play area Open House and follow-up ,,.,,, design review meetmg. The neighbors placed a shade shelter on their "wish list." Tlus donation will require approval of the Pazks and Recreation Advisory Boazd and appropnation of fundmg by City Council (City Charter Sectron 161). STAFk' RECOMIYLENDATION: Staff asks the Boazd to convey to Counc~l its favorable recommendation that the Pazk and Recreatron Department receive, for placement in the Permanent Park and Recreation Fund, Ms. Hendrick's proposed donation of $35,000 for a shade shelter at Wonderland I.ake Pazk play area. If favorably recommended by the PRAB, the Pazk and Recreation Deputment will seek Council appropriation of Ms. Hendnck's donation to the Wonderland Pazk play area shelter project as agreed by the parties m their Letter of Agreement.
