During yesterday’s Council meeting, the following actions took place:
A. Design consultants from Gateway Design Studio, LLC and i5Group were on hand to present the final master plan for the Recreation Complex and Bootheel Golf Course. Over the course of the designing phase, Gateway Design Studio met with City leaders, the Parks Advisory Board, Board of Municipal Utilities and organized user groups to determine what types of amenities were essential for the development of our parks. The master plan shows long term strategic planning for future development and if the plan is adopted by Council, it will be beneficial when applying for grant funding as it becomes available. The master plan included 11 phases over a course of several years and contains amenities such as:
• Outdoor fitness with shade
• Mountain bike trail
• Disc Golf
• Access road from Campanella to Rodeo Grounds
• Splash Pads
• New Park Shelters/Pavilions
• New baseball/softball field
• New soccer fields
• New all-inclusive playgrounds
• Miniature golf and automated batting cages
The master plan was approved by Council.
With no further action taken, the meeting was adjourned into Executive Session. Next regular Council meeting will be held Monday, March 29 at 5:00 p.m. at the Clinton Building.
