<br />WORK SESSION:
<br />LoveLOParks Initiative:
<br />The Parks board moved to repeal Parks Board opposition to the “LoveLOParks” initiative. The Parks
<br />board unanimously opposed the “LoveLOParks” initiative at their January 15, 2020 board meeting.
<br />Co-Chair, Bill Gordon explained at a previous board meeting the board made a motion and unanimously
<br />voted to oppose the LO Parks initiative, but the parks board as a whole and as individuals are viewed as
<br />city employees and after discussion with city attorney, David Powell the motion must now be repealed
<br />by the Parks board.
<br />Heidi Schrimsher made a motion to repeal opposition of the LO Parks initiative by the Parks,
<br />Recreation and Natural Resources Advisory Board. Scott Bullard seconded the motion. The
<br />board unanimously approved the motion.
<br />Bond Allocation/CIP Prioritization – Incl. Pool/Rec Center:
<br />(See attachments, handouts from Co-Chair, Bill Gordon)
<br />Co-chair Bill Gordon handed out documents from the presentation made to city council on July 16, 2019.
<br />The board was asked to look at the Conceptual Program Design w/Capital & Operational handout and
<br />Bill Gordon explained the key variables are the cost per square foot, 30% indirect cost including site
<br />work (parking) and contingency costs. The architects presumed an 8% escalation and total costs
<br />produced a permissible square footage amount of $704. The gross square footage was reviewed and
<br />created a net square footage and added 25% to get to 42,600 multiplied by $704 for a project cost of
<br />$30.0M. The next step was to review the program master list and reduce square footage starting with
<br />the competitive pool. Projection of site map was provided by Ivan Anderholm and viewed by board for
<br />reference on design.
