What Happened to the Design Committee for Oakdale Park? One Committee Member Speaks Out

Trena Shenk posted this as a comment on one of the other posts about Oakdale and I think it's important enough to get its own top level post. Includes emails.

******************************

I just want to know what has happened to the Oakdale Design and Review Committee I was on…

I have always been passionate (some may even say ~ to the extreme ~) about things I feel very strongly about… being on the Oakdale Park Design and Review Committee is/was no different.  So I just want to let you know that I still want to be a part of the Design and Review Committee’s present project – Oakdale and any future planning/projects.  To my knowledge we have not met since October 2009.  I sent an email September 17, 2009 to my Oakdale lovers, see below:

Hello fellow Oakdale lovers:

I just want to say thank you for all the surveys I received, they may be helpful in the future.  As of right now, I just want to update you all on where Oakdale stands.  It appears to me that the committee I am on knew in advance what the “city” wanted to do with Oakdale. I was not in the loop and as a result got very upset at all the hard work I did (surveying CITY/COUNTRY CITIZEN’S for their opinion) and felt that my efforts were in vein.  I have found out that there is only $1,000,000.00 to renovate with any way and with that little money, not much can really be done.  So it appears that festivals (musical and activity) will be added (about 1 a month) to bring in revenue so that in the future some of our survey ideas may be created.  Within a few weeks my committee will tour Oakdale and evaluate everything.  (WHICH WE NEVER DID!) One of the first things we are looking at is having engineers come look at the pool and get an idea of what it will cost to save it.  Thanks for your time and thoughts and I will do my very best to preserve Oakdale’s history.

THEN ON 10/8/09 I EMAILED THIS:

I just want to update everyone on the outcome of Oakdale.  Thank you so much for the surveys that you returned to me; I can still take them for future projects, so get them to me.  And remember to fill out the new one for the comprehensive study people and email it directly to them by TODAY October 8th.    My disclaimer: Not any of the below is written in stone, just thoughts that are being tossed about.  Here is what I feel is going on…

Oakdale should be purchased by 11/1/09.  Once that happens an engineering firm can be hired and plans drawn up as to what they feel will work best in Oakdale, meaning places for RVs, office, meeting halls, amphitheatre, pool and such.  The city council wants to keep the park as much like it is now as possible; adding festivals about 1 a month.  I believe their thoughts are to bring in tourist (a.k.a. $$) more than make a park for the citizens.  You may disagree with me, but that is truly the way I feel.  I don’t believe many citizens will attend the festivals as much as the city council hopes.  But I could be wrong; and I really hope I am, as there seems to be some fun and interesting festivals that can be brought to Oakdale. 

As of right now, Dr. Mark’s (Prickle) old land may wind up being parking, but we are checking into city ordinance because you cannot park on grass.  It may become the new RV Park or it may become something totally different in the future.  Again, these are just my thoughts on the way I think Oakdale is headed.  I really was hoping for a different outcome, (more youth/citizen friendly park) but when there is such little money to work with I completely understand why we are taking this approach (making money for future projects) instead.  My committee is still having weekly meetings at City Hall at 7pm, if you want to hear our progress or even voice your opinions, please come.  If you still have questions, email me and I will do my best to answer them.

 mitchell, i bet you are like me, busy~busy~busy... and would like to cancel?!?!?! so i say let’s just meet next week. i also think we may need to consider meeting a different day, that way Mr. Huckaby could meet.  and another reason i think we need to meet a different day is that i really want to be a part of this vision statement and as much of the entire process as possible, but i deliver on 11/17, which is right around the corner. that only leaves me coming to 3 more meetings if we skip this week. i know i will be out 11/19; i will probably still be in the hospital that day.  i will do my best to be back the following week.  Trena

It is very important to me that we all be involved in this last piece of the detail – I do trust each of you but this is too important not to all be involved – let’s look at next week and determine which day will be best.  I really would like for Mike to be involved as well.  Tonight’s meeting is hereby cancelled!  Any day but Wednesday and Friday is good for me.

From day one, I had high hopes of a skate park in Oakdale.  Maybe with you on board, I would have more of a chance for this to REALLY happen!!!  AND... have we decided on an alternate evening for the meeting? Trena

I don't know for sure. I haven't really pushed anything so we could all take a little break and clear our heads.

At this point, we may just wait til after Christmas. I guess it depends on whether or not I get any pressure to do anything.

The last Oakdale Design and Review meeting I was informed of and attended was in October; if I remember correctly, I NEVER MISSED A MEETING I KNEW ABOUT.  With that said, I hope that I have not been excluded from any Design and Review (Oakdale) meetings that may have taken place over the past six months.  I am hoping that someone will tell me that there have not been any Oakdale Design and Review Committee decisions/meetings for me to have missed. 

 

However, my eyes I think, tell me differently. Driving by Oakdale, it sure looks like I missed the meeting that said work could begin at Oakdale.  How do the workers at Oakdale know what to do? Or am I mistaken and do not see (or read in the paper) that work is being done at Oakdale? Or maybe the work being done is by the city employees and is just a cleanup/assessment to get ready for more input from the Design and Review (Oakdale) Committee. Maybe I am wrong and the work that IS being done at Oakdale is not something that the Design and Review Committee has any input in.    Or maybe I am just imagining things and there really is no work at all being done at Oakdale; however, I have spoken to a person who is doing some work there, so it appears to me that work IS being done at Oakdale.  This person states that their work requires decisions be given to him/her of various aspects of buildings that are presently being addressed. Those decisions were/are being made by someone/some people/some committee and then relayed on to the people who are doing this work, which to my knowledge is NOT the Oakdale Design and Review Committee.  I also have spoken with a 4B board member that asked me about the REC Center that he and I agreed was needed at Oakdale.  I was told that in a 4B meeting recently Mr. Huckaby (CVB Director and Oakdale Design and Review Committee Member) told them that a REC Center was never discussed in our Oakdale Design and Review meetings and if that really did occur, that is a flat out lie.  I discussed this with my committee and I was told that outside business people were putting a REC Center in and I even asked my committee then if they were just telling me this to get me to agree to not putting a REC Center in Stage I.  I was assured that a REC Center was being put in by the Polley’s towards Granbury. My mistake was not asking the Polley’s myself.  I also informed my committee that I had a survey to back up all my ideas… a survey that I will add, not one person from my Oakdale committee EVER asked to look at.  Sue Oldenburg,(4B Board Member) around October, ask me to look at it and she showed it to Mitchell George (4B Board Member and Oakdale Committee Member) before a meeting one night and I overheard tell her that my ideas were leading the survey takers.  I honestly do not believe that to be the case… let me tell you why… when I found out I was to be on the Oakdale committee I asked over 600 people on my email to give me THEIR ideas.  I wanted the public’s opinions; I wanted a public city/animal/youth friendly park.  I wanted this park to be something for the city to give back to the city/county residents.  I wanted to be the voice of my fellow community.  So I took EVERY IDEA, some were not feasible, however I wanted this survey to represent every single person that had an opinion… so I put all items in a survey and then sent that survey out to that same 600 + emails again and then combined all their opinions and took that in hand to my first meeting; where it was shot down (meaning they said they did not want to look at it, that a survey had already be done years ago) and I was crushed. I said from that first meeting that my fellow committee members already had an idea of what was to happen at Oakdale and the communities views did not matter. That I was the token committee member that the city/county residents would say “oh, Trena is on that committee and if she agrees with it, well then it must be ok, she would never do anything to hurt Oakdale.” I was told that my ideas (survey) might be used in later stages of development (if I remember correctly we talked about four stages of development) but that at this time they (survey ideas) were not wanted.  I guess my committee members already knew what was wanted from city hall and not the city residents.

(THIS IS IN RESPONSE TO MY “DO WE NEED TO MEET BEFORE HAND TO BE ON THE SAME PAGE”…) Mainly Trena in that it was apparent that some in the city have not been including or apparently not including the design committee in the remodeling of Oakdale. Disrespectful to the whole process. The 4-B has NOT seen a grand design plan and yet apparently there is one on paper somewhere out at Oakdale.

A park designer has developed a plan based on our meetings. He will present that plan Monday night to the city council and also to the 4B. I don’t think there is any need to meet prior to that.

First let me offer a huge apology if this didn't happen.  I don't know if ya'll were copied on the email last week.  4b is going to have a meeting tonight regarding Oakdale.  Peggy sent out notice last week but I just remembered that she probably didn't have you're contact info.  I know this is really late notice but I would appreciate it if you could make it. (I DID NOT GET ANY OTHER EMAIL BEFORE THIS ONE, SO APPARENTLY I WAS ONE OF THE PEOPLE THAT THEY FORGOT TO NOTIFY)

so the park planner will be at a meeting next monday, april 26th? if so i will do my best to be there. Trena

(TO WHICH I NEVER GOT ANY RESPONSE FROM HIM OR FROM ANY ONE AT THE CITY. I guess I should have sent another email to confirm.)

_______________________________________________________________________________

 

Maybe I was misinformed or I misunderstood the duties of my committee.  I thought our ideas were to be presented by us to the 4B and/or the engineers at a meeting, which to my knowledge has never been done.  Or maybe somehow my name was accidentally missing from the email informing me of that meeting or any meetings from October 2009 to the present, unless that was the meeting that I was informed of on the day of the meeting 4/19/10 only a few hours before that meeting.  I really hope I am so far off from seeing this the way that it really looks. However every week in the paper it seems there is something new mentioned about Oakdale’s development.  Now on April 27, 2010, I get a call from a concerned citizen asking me what happened to my committee and telling me that in a city meeting Mr. Huckaby apparently said he had to take over the Oakdale Design and Review Committee because he could not get members to attend the meetings.  Again, if that is what Mr. Huckaby said ~ then THIS TOO IS A LIE… you can see all my emails above asking when meeting were to take place, I copied Mr. Huckaby every time on those emails.  Now there may have been meetings that I was not informed of because they did not want me and my opinions to be heard!! But you can see from emails above that I questioned often about meetings.  I would have GLADLY TAKEN OVER AS CHAIR PERSON AND HONESTLY GIVEN MY ALL TO THIS PROJECT!!! I love this city/county and that park!!! Do the others on my committee feel the same??? When and how was the decision made to make Mr. Huckaby in charge… and isn’t that really a conflict of interest… he is director of the tourism of Glen Rose, so of course he would want this park to be more for the tourist, and not so much for the city/county residence… I also hear that the Prickle Property will be used for 100 RV’s and not for the (if my memory serves me correctly) 30-50 that my committee originally talked about… oh yea, and TREES WILL BE CUT DOWN to make this new RV park!!! That is not something a tree hugger, like myself, really likes to hear!!

So I am thinking that maybe the Oakdale Design and Review Committee I was on was only needed on paper to look good for the city residents before the city could purchased Oakdale or maybe the committee was only need to purchase Oakdale.  Or maybe the 4B committee has dissolved the Oakdale committee and is just making all the decisions themselves.  Whatever the case, can someone please fill me in as to whether my input is still needed and/or wanted? I am sure you can tell by my tone that I am a bit upset at this time.  As what I am seeing at this time is exactly what I felt at the first few meetings, that just a few select people would be determining what happens at Oakdale and that my opinions and the opinions of the city and county citizens, do not matter at all.  I have set back and done nothing for far too long, waiting and hoping for my Oakdale committed to meet again.  This meeting is just not happening and I want to know why? Please help me to not be upset if what I have said is not correct.  Please help me to see that I was given every opportunity to really be apart of this committee and the future of Oakdale.

 

Very confused and concerned Oakdale Design and Review Committee Member,

 

Trena Sandlin-Shenk

This whole scenario is a disgrace. Trena, it's clear that the city dumped the Design committee, either intentionally or because of their own incompetence. So far, they have significantly failed our community in this project. They have no idea of the value of Oakdale nor do they understand what it is that makes it so special.  They also have no intention of listening to others. With all due respect, Trena, the city should have first addressed the question of maintaining the historical character of the city and of Oakdale Park. Then they should have hired an architect who specializes in historical preservation, a landscape architect, a tree specialist and a designer. Your committee could have been responsible for gathering input from the community, which you did. It's very clear to me that one or more of these people have their own agenda. Is there anyone out there who disagrees with the value of maintaining the historical character of our city? Why would we NOT want to pursue this approach?

I'd like to clarify my statements above. I think Mr. Huckabee has an agenda (more RV's and $) and possibly the Mayor. The rest of council doesn't have a clue. Why is our city council going into private enterprise? What are their qualifications? Where does what's best of our city fit in?

Subject: Subcomittee to Advice on the Design of Oakdale Park.

After several scratch pads and talking to interested citizens I would like to appoint the following people to assist the design firm in creating a plan for Oakdale Park.  I believe each of these individuals bring expertise in different areas.  I intend on adding someone from the preservation board.  I have, however, not spoken to anyone from the board.  Billy has already told me he will not be available the latter part of this week.  I intend to discuss design firm options at the next regularly scheduled 4B meeting.  It would be great if this committee could begin meeting soon in order to get the process started.  I appreciate these individuals willingness to serve in this capacity.

Mike,
 
I am Trena Shenk a native Glen Rose resident. I am a teacher in Morgan so I am off a few more weeks.  Once school starts back I am free most evenings.  I have a 1 year old and am pregnant again, due in November. So my life is little busy, but I am very excited to be a part of this!!
Thanks

> Good Afternoon.
>
> My name is Mike Shaw and I have been appointed as the Chair of the Oakdale Park Design/Review Committee.
>
> The goal of any group such as this should be to assist those we have been selected to serve, namely the City of Glen Rose and the 4B (Type B) Board, in making well-informed decisions based upon accurate information and what is best for the entire community. In order to both efficiently and effectively accomplish these goals, it is important to stay focused on the task presented to us as a committee: the planning/design/review of Oakdale Park. It is my goal and duty as the Chair of the Committee to maintain objectivity throughout the course of this project. Everyone's opinions, ideas, and thoughts are welcomed and will be heard.
>
> In order to begin this process, I am proposing a general meeting of the Committee to discuss several important issues that will further define our role in this project. Below, I have provided several items that need to be considered and discussed, in detail, before proceeding further. Beginning the process in this manner should allow for easier discussions with the park planner/designer, once selected and approved by the 4B Board and City Council, as we will have a clearer picture of our visions, goals, and objectives. This process will also allow the designer to work more quickly to develop the committee's visions into reality. This is by no means an all-inclusive list of all of the issues that need to be addressed or considered, but merely a road map to help determine the best, initial direction as a committee.
>
> 1. What is your vision for Oakdale Park?
> 2. Who will (should be) the primary users of the park? Seconday users?
> 3. What current services should be continued?
> 4. What services should be eliminated?
> 5. What services should be added?
>
> Again, this is certainly not a comprehensive list of everything to consider for the future of Oakdale Park. Please feel free to ask additional questions of the group as necessary.
>
> Due to my busy home and work schedule, I am somewhat relegated to meeting in the late afternoon or evening. Being unfamiliar with everyone else's schedules, please advise as to what day(s) of the week and time(s) work best for you to meet. I hope to be able to meet as a group within the next week or two.
>
> Again, please review the above items and be prepared to discuss your thoughts at the first meeting. I thank each of you for your willingness to participate in this project and look forward to working with you in the coming months.

I don’t think they are looking for a final report. I think we just tell them we have been meeting weekly and setting what we feel are priorities should be. Also tell them we plan to have a final report for their November meeting. I can not attend as my daughter has a volleyball game this evening.

 mitchell, i bet you are like me, busy~busy~busy... and would like to cancel?!?!?! so i say let’s just meet next week. i also think we may need to consider meeting a different day, that way Mr. Huckaby could meet.  and another reason i think we need to meet a different day is that i really want to be a part of this vision statement and as much of the entire process as possible, but i deliver on 11/17, which is right around the corner. that only leaves me coming to 3 more meetings if we skip this week. i know i will be out 11/19; i will probably still be in the hospital that day.  i will do my best to be back the following week.  Trena

It is very important to me that we all be involved in this last piece of the detail – I do trust each of you but this is too important not to all be involved – let’s look at next week and determine which day will be best.  I really would like for Mike to be involved as well.  Tonight’s meeting is hereby cancelled!  Any day but Wednesday and Friday is good for me.

This company gave presentation at the TML convention in Fort Worth last week. It completely changed my attitude towards a skate park component in the Oakdale Project. Please go to this web site and review  www.newlineskatepark.com

Thanks

From day one, I had high hopes of a skate park in Oakdale.  Maybe with you on board, I would have more of a chance for this to REALLY happen!!!  AND... have we decided on an alternate evening for the meeting? Trena

I don't know for sure. I haven't really pushed anything so we could all take a little break and clear our heads.

At this point, we may just wait til after Christmas. I guess it depends on whether or not I get any pressure to do anything.

I am calling a meeting GREDC meeting on Primarily Concerning Oakdale Park on Monday, April 12, 2010.  There is a City Council meeting prior to that so the GREDC will start as soon as they are done.  Usually City council meetings are over by 7:30, thus the estimated start time.  Please be ready to finalize ideas and plans for a design firm and city council. 

Thanks
Connally

(THIS IS IN RESPONSE TO MY “DO WE NEED TO MEET BEFORE HAND TO BE ON THE SAME PAGE”…) Mainly Trena in that it was apparent that some in the city have not been including or apparently not including the design committee in the remodeling of Oakdale. Disrespectful to the whole process. The 4-B has NOT seen a grand design plan and yet apparently there is one on paper somewhere out at Oakdale.

A park designer has developed a plan based on our meetings. He will present that plan Monday night to the city council and also to the 4B. I don’t think there is any need to meet prior to that.

As some of you may know, Mygnonne Thomas passed away Sunday morning.  Out of respect, the city council and 4b meetings have been postponed. As of yet we have not rescheduled.

First let me offer a huge apology if this didn't happen.  I don't know if ya'll were copied on the email last week.  4b is going to have a meeting tonight regarding Oakdale.  Peggy sent out notice last week but I just remembered that she probably didn't have you're contact info.  I know this is really late notice but I would appreciate it if you could make it. (I DID NOT GET ANY OTHER EMAIL BEFORE THIS ONE, SO APPARENTLY I WAS ONE OF THE PEOPLE THAT THEY FORGOT TO NOTIFY)
