Pearl Park


The parking lot still needs to be sealed, striped and bermed.  There are not any updates or plans for dugouts from LAC.  The board needs to create a master plan for this park before water and other utilities are considered.  There will be a walk through at the park starting at 5 p.m. for the next meeting on May 13th.  Will request a representative from LAC be present.


Willow Park


Will conduct walk through at this park on May 13th (at approximately 5:30) after the walk through at Pearl Park.  LAC did request to paint the dugouts – need to get a few questions answered but board was not opposed to them painting. 


Eastlake Park


Proceeding with the Parking Lot – no other updates.


Other Issues:


  • Great American Clean Up  - 1st Saturday in May – May 4th.  Will work with police – contact local scouts and Jr. Beta.
  • Easter Egg Hunt – Went well.  The Board would like to thank Sandy Mealy and Michelle Deprofrio for all of their hard work and a job well done.
  • Christmas Lights – The board would like to see a mockup with the different lights.
  • Recycle Bins – GS Brownie Troop would like to put recycle bins in Willow Park.  Will discuss further at next month’s walk through where they will meet the board at the park.


Shane Mealy made motion to adjourn, seconded by Frank Daugherty.  ALL AYES, MOTION APPROVED.
