Consider approval of Ordinance 2023-27, on the first of two readings, amending certain funds in the City’s 2022-2023 Fiscal Year Budget to authorize the use of funds for one-time non-recurring park improvements; including procedural provisions; and declaring an effective date.

Is there a more detailed list of exactly what is going to be added/replaced in the listed parks?

Where are the rules for use of parkland fee-in-lieu? Please provide link.
Here is a snapshot from our LDC regarding Parkland Fee-in-Lieu fund expenditures. Since coming over to the Parks and Recreation Department I track the fee-in-lieu approved by the Parks and Rec Board to ensure that funds are used within the same area or within a regional park. We have funds that are earmarked as part of the settlement with the San Marcos Voice related to the Hillside II project that can only be used in the Spring Lake Area and to plant trees and vegetation within a specified area.

Responses provided by Jamie Lee Case, Director of Parks & Recreation:

Here is a breakdown of everything that will be improved:

Kenneth M. Copeland Memorial Park Improvements: Addition of shade structures, picnic tables, skate spot like that at Dunbar Park

Tennis Court Improvements: Replacement of rotting backboards, signage and permanent pickleball nets on one tennis court creating 8 permanent pickleball courts at Rio Vista

Rio Vista and Children’s Park restrooms Improvements: The toilets are old and were planned to be replaced within the CIP within the Riverfront Parks Restroom improvements project, but the toilets are constantly out of order during high use times and need to be addressed sooner.

Surfacing material at Playgrounds: We will not be using fee-in-lieu funds for this project. This is replacing the material around the playscapes in various neighborhood parks like Dunbar, Willow Springs, and Veteran’s

Installation of new water fountains in regional and neighborhood parks: Rio Vista, City Park, Children’s Park, Lower Purgatory, Blanco Shoals Natural Area, and Kenneth M. Copeland. Water is not available at all parks and fee-in-lieu funds are not available to for all neighborhoods due to benefit area. Addition of water fountains to all neighborhood parks is being evaluated and will likely be a future CIP project.
