Minutes of April 15, 2008

Call to order: 7:07 PM

Present were : Parks Committee Members Kerry Galeaz, Christa Brey, Richard Brey, Nathan Mason, & Sara O'Connell.

Review of Minutes: Kerry moved to approve the minutes from 3/18/08. Vote in favor was 5:0.

Town Meeting Kerry informed the group that both the annual budget and the Bloomfield Park road project were approved at the Town Meeting on 4/2/08. This is good news and will keep the Parks Commission very busy over the next several months!

Bloomfield Park Road Project Three different bids for the road project are necessary. The group was in favor of keeping the work local if possible. After discussion the group tentatively decided to get bids from Jay Fowler, Richard King, and Richard Tracy. Kerry also noted that discussions with the Branches and the Selectman are needed to iron some details out and to figure out how to get this ball rolling.

Handicap Stalls & Signs At Lamoine Beach The dilemma is this: Do the handicap spots & signs go on the side of the parking lot facing the beach, or on the other side? The group is worried about the aesthetic effect the handicap signs will have to the area. Another thought, that Christa is looking into, is whether the signs are even needed. Can we paint the wheelchair symbols on the pavement and not put a sign? Once Christa determines what the code is the group just needs to make the decision.

Trash Clean-Up On Sunday, April 20th @ 9:00am the group is meeting at Marlboro Beach for a clean up event. The first spot to tackle will be Marlboro Beach , then Bloomfield Park and then Lamoine Beach . Kerry is bringing trash bags and gloves, and Rich is bringing Duct tape. The more people that show up the easier the clean up will be!

Maintenance Day - There are a number of routine maintenance tasks that need to get done before the season is up and running.

These tasks got divided out to people. Christa & Sara are going to re-paint the picnic tables. Kerry & Nate are going to meet on Tuesday, May 6th @ 8:30am at Lamoine Beach to tackle some of these items.

Kiosks The group is making progress on the kiosks. The content for the panels is done. Finding the pictures and getting them copyright approved is proving to be rather difficult for each picture. The goal is to have the panels finalized by the next monthly meeting!

Next Meeting The next monthly meeting is Tuesday, May 20th at 7:00pm at the Town Hall.

There being no further business, the meeting adjourned at 7:48pm. A kiosk workshop followed.
