RESOLUTION NO. 811

 

A RESOLUTION OF THE CITY COUNCIL OF THE CITY OF UNIVERSITY PLACE AUTHORIZING ACCEPTANCE OF THE STATE RECREATION AND CONSERVATION OFFICE GRANT THAT IS FOR THE CIRQUE PARK LIGHTING IMPROVEMENT PROJECT, INCLUDING EXPENDITURE OF PARK IMPACT FEES FOR THE LOCAL MATCH

 

 

            WHEREAS, on August 10, 2015, City Council authorized, by Resolution No. 786, an application for grant funding assistance from the State Recreation and Conservation Office (RCO) for improvements at Cirque Park. These improvements are on the Parks Commission’s Capital Improvement list of priorities and include lighting at the softball field and synthetic all-weather surfacing for the softball infield; and

 

            WHEREAS, this grant requires a 50% match from the City, which funds are in the 2016 budget and are funded by Park impact fees; and

 

            WHEREAS, the City has received notice that it was successful with the grant application and has secured funding for both improvement projects at Cirque Park; and  

 

WHEREAS, because there are safety concerns regarding the health effects of crumb rubber surfaces that are not resolved at this time, the City Council deems it is in the best interests of the City and its residents to proceed only with that portion of the RCO grant that is for the Cirque Park Lighting improvement project; and

 

WHEREAS, due to unresolved safety concerns, RCO has agreed to delete the synthetic all-weather surfacing, to be replaced with additional lighting at Cirque Park.

 

            NOW, THEREFORE, BE IT RESOLVED BY THE CITY COUNCIL OF UNIVERSITY PLACE, WASHINGTON, AS FOLLOWS:

 

1.     Incorporation.  The recitals are hereby incorporated herein as if set forth in full.

 

2.     Acceptance of Grant. The City hereby accepts the State Recreation and Conservation Office grant award for the Cirque Park Lighting improvement project.

 

3.     Expenditure of Park Impact Fees. The expenditure of Park impact fees for the mandatory local

match for the Cirque Park Lighting improvement project is hereby authorized.

 

4.     Effective Date.  This Resolution shall be effective immediately upon adoption by the City Council.

 

            ADOPTED BY THE CITY COUNCIL ON MAY 2, 2016.
