What is the long-term plan for exercise equipment at that park since some is being removed? Is there a plan for development of the south end of the park or integration with any Alpine-Balsam development? • Exercise equipment at North Boulder Park is well used.

Flatirons Golf Course Facility Design This item was presented by Briggs. The Board had the following questions and/or comments: • How will golf carts access the to-go food window? • Appreciate seeing the eco-friendly features. One of the problems with UV windows is birds’ flying into them. Is BPR considering updated windows that have patterns that birds can see and thus prevent harmful collisions? • In addition to the issues with birds, has staff considered the practicality of changing light bulbs and maintenance on the higher ceilings? • Would rather see window meshing for bird protection instead of stone veneer (if funds are not sufficient to purchase windows that protect birds).
