RE: RECOMMENDATION TO APPROVE A RESOLUTION EXPRESSING
SUPPORT FOR THE HOMER PLAYGROUND PROJECT
The Homer Playground Project (HoPP) requested the commission on January 5, 2012 during a special meeting to approve submitting a resolution to Council expressing support for and urging community/volunteer participation for the proposed playground at Karen Hornaday Park. The commission postponed a decision on this request until the regular meeting on January 19, 2012 and decided they would address it as a separate issue on the agenda.
During the January 19, 2012 regular meeting under Pending Business the commission reviewed the proposed language for a resolution expressing support and agreed to submit the resolution with no changes to Council for approval. The excerpt from that meeting follows:
C. Review and Recommendation to Submit a Memorandum of Support for HoPP to City Council.
Chair Bremicker opened discussion on this item.
LOWNEY/LILLIBRIDGE - MOVE TO SUBMIT A RECOMMENDATION TO CITY COUNCIL THAT THEY APPROVE THE RESOLUTION ENDORSING THE HOMER PLAYGROUND PROJECT AND ENCOURAGING COMMUNITY AND VOLUNTEER PARTICIPATION IN THE PROJECT.
There was brief discussion on using the language submitted in resolution form from the group HoPP.
VOTE. YES. NON-OBJECTION. UNANIMOUS CONSENT.
