RESOLUTION 11-064

A RESOLUTION OF THE CITY COUNCIL OF HOMER, ALASKA, APPROVING A MEMORANDUM OF AGREEMENT BETWEEN THE CITY OF HOMER, THE HOMER FOUNDATION, AND THE HOMER PLAYGROUND PROJECT (HOPP) REGARDING IMPROVEMENTS TO THE PLAYGROUND AT KAREN HORNADAY PARK AND DELINEATING THE ROLES AND RESPONSIBILITIES OF THE PARTIES.

WHEREAS, The City of Homer has adopted a Karen Hornaday Park Master Plan and has secured and appropriated funds to implement Phase I of the Plan; and

WHEREAS, Redesigning the playground area and upgrading the equipment is an important component of Phase I; and

WHEREAS, The City presently has many other capital priorities and lacks the staff and other resources necessary to advance this project in a timely manner; and

WHEREAS, The Homer Playground Project (HoPP) is comprised of parents and other interested parties who wish to volunteer their time and energy toward raising funds and coordinating a community based effort that will make an improved playground a reality by next year; and

WHEREAS, The Homer Foundation has agreed to be the fiscal agent and responsible 501C3 entity for HoPP and to provide a range of financial management and fund raising services for the Homer Playground Project; and

WHEREAS, A draft Memorandum of Agreement (MOA) between the City, The Homer Foundation, and HoPP has been prepared which outlines the respective roles and responsibilities of the parties regarding improvements to the playground; and

WHEREAS, The draft MOA follows a model for park development that has been very successful in other Alaska communities and is similar to the approach used in Homer the last time this playground was improved in 1997.
NOW, THEREFORE, BE IT RESOLVED that the Homer City Council hereby approves the Memorandum of Agreement between the City, The Homer Foundation, and HoPP regarding improvements to the playground at Karen Hornaday Park; a copy of which is attached and incorporated herein.

PASSED AND ADOPTED by the Homer City Council this 27th day of June, 2011.
