Another Plan for Oakdale Park-This One by Gary Ivey, New Park Manager (Audio/Pics)

I have quite a bit I want to emphasize about the City of Glen Rose meeting that happened this last Saturday, but will start with audio and a picture of the new plan. I'm also going to put in the handout Mr Ivey passed out, sans a few *fluff* pages, like one that says VIsion, Vision, Vision, Vision, etc, but if you want the page with that on it, and related, you can get it, I'm sure, from Peggy B. Broke handout into 2 parts.

Part 1

Part 2

(Large file, about 37mg)

Basically, Bud Surles plan is DEAD. There isn't money to go do stuff to the lot across from Oakdale Park, so Mr Ivey recommended that old Oakdale Park get fixed up, with preservation of as many trees as possible, paved roads of chip and seal, keep the old wooden cabins where they are (there's something amusing about this that I will put up later), get the cabins ADA compliant (and that would include the old skating rink), fix the pool up by adding a pool within a pool. Incidentally, that would get rid of the diving boards because there wouldn't be enough depth to safely dive, but according to Mr Ivey, it isn't deep enough NOW. He also wants to duplicate the sign at the entrance like it used to be except it needs to be wider and taller. I felt very drawn to his plan, even though I'm sure it won't suit everyone, but he did want to try to preserve the look of the old park. Whether this would meet historical preservation ideas, I have no idea; meeting in the next room the Preservation committee was considering whether to just chunk Oakdale Park out of the historical district entirely-that action was tabled.

Anyway, will update this with the handout later but to start, here's the pic from Ivey (click to see full size)

City council has not voted on his plan (they never voted to approve and use Surl's)  and I wondered why he was going out and getting bids without going through the city first.
