I. CALL TO ORDER

II. APPROVAL OF MINUTES

III. SUBURBAN PARK MASTER PLAN REQUEST FOR PROPOSALS
Narrative

In 2002, the Township engaged ELA Group to complete a Master Plan for Suburban Park. The 10- acre park is located on Suburban Avenue and abuts the Overlook Heights neighborhood. Given that the Park Master Plan is more than 15 years old, it is likely that needs have changed in the community, Township and Centre Region. Additionally, the University Area Joint Authority has worked with the Township and students at Penn State University to design improvements to the drainage way on the parcel. An update to the Master Plan is critical to accommodating this project as well as ensuring that capital improvements on the park are best suited to meet the needs of the community. In 2018, the Township budgeted $35,000 for a consultant to update the Master Plan. The first step in the process is to prepare an RFP for services. A copy of the current Master Plan is provided with the agenda. Centrice Martin, Assistant to the Manager, has prepared a draft Request for Proposals that has been provided with the agenda. Once proposals are received, staff will review the responses and present to this Committee for a recommendation for award to the Board of Supervisors.

Recommended motion: That the Parks Committee approve the Request for Proposals for consulting services to update the Suburban Park Master Plan.

IV. FERGUSON TOWNSHIP PARKS TOUR
The meeting will briefly recess and reconvene in the Centre Region Parks and Recreation van for the commencement of the Parks Tour. Dave Pribulka, Township Manager, will review the draft 2019 – 2023 Parks Capital Improvement Plan during the tour.
