I. CALL TO ORDER

II. APPROVAL OF MINUTES

III. OWENS DRIVE PARK NAMING
Narrative

On February 20th, the Board of Supervisors authorized the permanent naming of Owens Drive Park, a nine-acre parcel of land that was acquired in 2015, due to its infiltrative qualities. A master plan has yet to be developed for the park, but discussions have largely centered on its development as a “passive park” with native plantings and a trail network. A project is planned for tree planting in the park for Arbor Day this year, and funding is designated in the Capital Improvement Plan for development in the next five years. Provided with the agenda is a copy of the Township’s adopted Park Naming Policy.

IV. CECIL IRVIN PARK PHASE II DEVELOPMENT
Narrative
The Township is preparing to submit an application to the Department of Conservation and Natural Resources’ Community Conservation Partnerships Program (C2P2) for funding of Phase II of Cecil Irvin Park. Provided with the agenda is a copy of the park master plan and phasing outline. The budget includes $200,000 for development in 2019. $100,000 of that figure is being requested through this grant. It is highly unlikely that the entire Phase II will be developed with this funding; however, the priorities should be parking, connecting trails, and green infrastructure for stormwater management. An exact scope of work is still being developed for the project.

V. CENTRE REGION PARKS AND RECREATION AUTHORITY REPORT
Narrative

Denise Meyer will report on the activities of the Centre Region Parks and Recreation Authority.
