REPORT ON LITHIA PARK LOWER POND

Superintendent Gies reported that the lower pond had met the terms of the first portion of the contract by the September 21, 2002 deadline. The second phase of the contract, in which the clarity must be maintained for a year, has begun.

APPROVAL OF OPEN SPACE SUMMARY

Commissioner Landt reported that this document incorporated suggestions made since the August Regular Meeting, where it had initially been presented. He went on to detail some additional changes that he would like to see made to the document, and explained that he planned to affix this document to the actual map.

Public Comment - None

Discussion Among Commissioners

Commissioner Eggers proposed different language for the 'note' listed on page two of the summary and offered her suggested language.

Commissioner Lewis suggested including "conservation easement" to the 'trail connection in Willows area.'

Commissioner MacGraw expressed her support and approval of the document and the suggested changes. Noting that the open-space acquisition process is ever-evolving and the summary isn't meant to "limit," Commissioner MacGraw suggested adding some language to the summary to keep it open-ended.

Commissioner Landt agreed, saying, "We wouldn't want anything we've said or done to preclude an exceptional piece from being included in the future."

In light of all the changes, Commissioner Jones suggested tabling an approval vote on the document until next meeting.

NEW BUSINESS - None

SUB-COMMITTEE and STAFF REPORTS - None

ITEMS FROM COMMISSIONERS

Councilor Don Laws spoke about the complimentary letter recently received from a citizen regarding the "recent action of the Ashland City Council enabling the Parks Department to maintain the school grounds and playing fields of Ashland."
