President Miller referred the issue of security at the CRC to the Parks and Recreation Committee.

Commissioner Wolff reported that he had received communication regarding the location of the skate park.

Commissioner O’Malley stated that there had been a feature on ABC TV about Roemer Park.  He also noted that there had been a great deal of communications expressing concerns about the recent removal of trees at Mallinckrodt, and he agreed with some of those concerns.

RECOGNITION OF VISITORS:

President Miller recognized Suzanne Distler, 1131 Ridge Road.  Ms. Distler stated that she lives at the corner of Ridge and Elmwood and that no notice had been given to the neighbors of Mallinckrodt that approximately 46 trees would be taken down at the property.  She noted that there has been notice given to the neighbors when much less significant work was done in the neighborhood, but these trees were destroyed without any warning and this destruction was a shock to the residents.  Ms. Distler added that she now has concerns as to what the developer will do next, and she and other residents are very upset and angry over not only the fact that the trees are gone, but also with how the issue was handled.

President Miller noted that the removal of the trees at Mallinckrodt had generated a great deal of communication from residents expressing concerns to the Park District and the Village.  He asked Director Porter to report on the issue.

Director Porter briefly outlined how the Mallinckrodt property came to be obtained by the Park District after a group of residents in 2001 presented a petition with over 5,600 signatures requesting that a referendum be put on the November 2002 election ballot giving the Park District the authority to issue up to $25,000,000 in bonds to purchase the property.  The referendum passed by a 55% majority and negotiations with Loyola University proceeded.  Once the property was purchased, the Park District and the Village held public hearings, two of which were joint meetings, to receive community input on what should be done with the building and the park land.  It was the consensus of the community to save the building and eventually after reviewing ten proposals regarding re-development of the building, it was agreed to sell the building to a developer for the construction of condominiums for seniors.  Director Porter pointed out that the Village became involved in the process because the Park District is not a home rule government and does not have the authority to sell more than three acres of property or  to deal with housing issues.

Director Porter noted that the Village and the Park District had different criteria with regard to the adaptive reuse of the building.  The Village’s mission was with the  historical preservation issue and to provide the community with senior housing along with some affordable housing.   The Park District was concerned with compatibility of the building with the neighborhood, compatibility with the park land, purchase price, and community access to a portion of the building.  Director Porter stated that the plan that was eventually agreed upon satisfied the criteria of both the Village and the Park District.    He also noted that the plans for the development of the property will result in an actual net gain of green space around the building which will be fully landscaped with trees, shrubs and ground cover.

Director Porter explained that the developer had submitted and received approval for an attractive landscaped site plan for the area where the trees have been removed in order to construct underground parking. He noted that parking requirements for the condominiums could have been accommodated either above ground, which would have sacrificed green space and possibly resulted in the construction of a parking deck, or by going underground.  The underground parking option was deemed preferable because it resulted in more green space. Displaying a drawing of the plan, Director Porter pointed out that the plan includes 60 canopy and ornamental trees along with shrubs and groundcover.  He noted that in addition to the trees, the plan includes an entrance,  sidewalks, benches and a fountain.  Because a portion of this area is on a public easement, it will be open and accessible to the public, and it will be very compatible with the park land adjacent to the building.

Director Porter also explained that all of the trees that were removed had been inventoried and assessed by a well known and highly regarded forestry consultant firm using a rating scale of excellent to dead.  A majority of the 44 trees were Evergreens.  Approximately ten of the removed trees were deciduous.  He stated that the average rating of the trees which were removed was fair, and the most numerous species of deciduous trees which were removed from the site was silver maple, which had an average condition rating of below fair.  Director Porter pointed out that the Village does not plant this species of trees in its parkways due to weak wood formation, poor resistance to storm damage, and problems with decay.  He stated that with regard to the three trees located along Ridge Road near the driveway which were slated for removal to improve ingress and egress to and from the property, Village and Park District staff are working with the developer to reconfigure the entrance/exit areas so that at least two of the trees can be maintained.  In addition, there are no plans at this time for further tree removal.  However, it is possible that it will be necessary to remove diseased and/or impaired trees on Park District property over the course of time.  Director Porter noted that it has always been the practice of both the Village and the Park District to continually monitor the tree stock and to replace trees that have been removed.  He added that the Village routinely plants more trees on an annual basis than it removes and that the Park District also maintains an aggressive tree planting program.

Director Porter concluded his presentation by stating that every aspect of this site development was conducted in the public arena by the Village and Park Boards.  Redevelopment proposals, which included plans for landscaping changes, were discussed at meetings of the Zoning Board, the Village Board, the Park Board and the Appearance Review Commission.  He noted that the Appearance Review Commission met on three different occasions to specifically discuss the landscape site development plan and reviewed not only the trees to be removed, but also the number and types of trees that would replace them.

President Miller thanked Director Porter for his  presentation.

Commissioner Cohen stated that she is in sympathy with those people who were so upset about the destruction of the trees at Mallinckrodt as trees are very important to the quality of life in Wilmette.  She said that that due to the fact that the trees literally disappeared overnight, seemingly without any warning, the community’s reaction was understandable.  Commissioner Cohen stated that the Park Board will endeavor to make sure that such a situation does not occur again.

APPROVAL OF VOUCHER LIST:

Commissioner O’Malley moved and Commissioner Wolff seconded a motion to  approve the Voucher List in the amount of $2,015,693.88,  a copy of which is to be attached to and become a permanent part of the minutes of this meeting.

By a roll call vote, voting Yes -- Commissioners Brault, Cohen, Marcus, Miller, O'Malley, and Wolff; voting No -- None.    Absent – Commissioner Crowley.  Motion carried.

COMMITTEE REPORTS:

Parks and Recreation --  Committee Chair Marcus reported that the Committee met on April 18th.  At that time, the Committee heard a presentation from Dan Dalziel of 3D Design Studio regarding the analysis of potential skate park locations in Wilmette.  Commissioner Marcus noted that Mr. Dalziel was in attendance to give an overview of the final report to the full Board.

Mr. Dalziel explained that 3D Design Studio is a landscape architectural firm based in Grayslake, IL.  He noted that the firm had designed several skate parks and has experience with the process and the concerns regarding the location and operation of these facilities.  Mr. Dalziel reported that after evaluating nine potential sites in Wilmette, 3D Design had narrowed down the list of feasible locations to four – Centennial, Hibbard Park, Community Playfield, and Mallinckrodt.  He explained that in rating the locations, 3D had considered the sites’ proximity to any existing residential housing, how compatible a skate park would be with current park activities, where the best possible location in the park would be for the facility, security issues of roadside visibility and security lighting, the availability of drinking water and restrooms and the ability to expand the skate park in the future, if necessary. Additional criteria considered were the impact to current park use, parking availability, and whether a skate park would have an impact on the current character of the park.   Mr. Dalziel stated that in the final analysis, the recommendation of 3D Design is that the best location for a skate park in Wilmette would be at Community Playfield because that site meets all ten of the criteria used to rate the parks.  He noted that Centennial Park, Hibbard Park, and Mallinckrodt also meet most of the evaluation criteria.

Commissioner Marcus thanked Mr. Dalziel for his presentation and stated that the Parks and Recreation Committee’s recommendation is that Community Playfield be considered as the site for a potential skate park.  He also recommended that public hearings be conducted by a Committee-of-the-Whole. 

Commissioner Cohen inquired if the issue of having a skate park at Community Playfield had been discussed with the School District as students are not allowed to bring skateboards or skates to school.

Director Porter responded that he had discussed the possibility of putting a skate park at Community Playfield with District 39 School Superintendent McGee.  He stated that Dr. McGee had not ruled out the concept and would discuss the issue with the School Board.

Commissioner Wolff expressed concerns about locating a skate park at Community Playfield.  He noted that there are always parking problems due to the intense use of the baseball and soccer fields on weekends.  He stated that in his opinion, Community Playfield is too heavily used to accommodate another activity and proximity to the playing fields could pose a threat to the users of the skate park.  Commissioner Wolff stated that he felt that Hibbard Park is a much more logical choice for a skate park.

Commissioner Brault stated that he agreed with Commissioner Wolff that Community Playfield is already overused and the addition of a skate park would create a balancing challenge for the activities.

President Miller opened the meeting to public comment.

Dan Ryan, 2615 Marian Lane stated that as a property tax payer in Wilmette, he would not be in favor of the construction of a skate park.  Since it would not be supported by user fees like other facilities, it would not be a fair use of the taxpayers’ money.  He noted that it would be a facility that would be used by a small number of people in the community, and it would have a negative aesthetic impact on the neighborhood in addition to the noise generated by this type of facility.  Mr. Ryan also noted that there would probably be a large influx of non resident users at the facility.   He requested that a careful study of all these issues be undertaken before any decision is made regarding building a skate park at Community Playfield.

Margaret Turner, 725 Locust Road  stated that she was not in favor of a skate park at Community Playfield.  She noted that there are approximately 1,500 young children between the ages of five and eight using the park every Saturday and this could pose a danger to them.  In addition, Ms. Turner cited problems with the noise, traffic, visibility to the street, lighting and parking in the area.  She also felt that there was not convenient availability of drinking fountains and rest rooms.

Adam Merrill, 2547 Marian Lane stated that he is not opposed to a skate park in Wilmette, but does not want it at Community Playfield as the noise would be very intrusive to his residence.  In addition, he felt that there are many small children using Community Playfield and it could present a danger to them. 

Cecelia C. Carlson, 605 Illinois Road stated that a skate park close to a tot lot is a very bad idea.  She felt that a good location would be in the southeast corner of Mallinckrodt.

David Hanson, 740 Locust Road cited concerns regarding parking at Community Playfield, the lack of restrooms, and the possibility of vandalism.

Graham Crosh, 2349 Thornwood stated that Community Playfield would be an excellent location for a skate park.  He also noted that skate parks are becoming increasingly popular and that skate park activities are no more specialized as leisure time activities than tennis or golf, which the Wilmette Park District has offered for many years.  He feels that concerns about safety, vandalism, noise, etc. are problems that can easily be solved.

Tony Reynes, 2609 Marian Lane expressed concerns about the fiscal viability of providing this type of specialized facility.  He recommended that public hearings not be scheduled until it is definite that the Park District will be constructing a skate park.

Rick Morrison, 2636 Marian Lane stated that there are not enough soccer facilities now at Community Playfield and the skate park would remove some space for soccer practices.  He also expressed concerns about using taxpayers money for a skate park and stated that there are more pressing needs in Wilmette

John Hagar, 2525 Marian Lane stated that a skate park would add to the intensified usage at Community Playfield.  He referred to the hearings of ten years ago when the community protested overdevelopment of Community Playfield and indicated they wanted the site to be open space.

Michael Rushmore, 939 Romona Road stated that his family and the families of the young people who want the skate park also pay taxes to the Wilmette Park District.  He noted that for many years, there have been requests to the Park District to provide a safe environment for skateboarding and related activities. He noted that without a skate park, skateboarding is an accident waiting to happen.  He added that the talk of vandalism is a negative stereotype of skateboarders and that there are ways to deal with the noise issue when the park is designed.  Mr. Rushmore stated that he would have preferred to have the skate park at Mallinckrodt, but Community Playfield would also be a good location.

Joel Rosenthal, 2450 Iroquois stated that most skateboarders are not involved in other sports offered in the community and he feels it is time for that group, which is growing steadily, to have a dedicated facility.  He feels that Community Playfield would be a good site because it is near multiple schools and it is a central location.  He stated that the talk of parking problems is exaggerated as Community Playfield is easy to access by Pace Bus.  He also noted that well engineered ramps produce little noise.

Don Harkins, 401 Maple thanked the Board for moving forward on the skate park issue.  He stated that he personally favors Mallinckrodt as a site, but feels that Community Playfield would be an acceptable location for a skate park.  He noted that there had been issues in his neighborhood when Maple Park was being renovated.  However, the residents worked together and the result was a neighborhood park, which is enjoyed and used by many.  He feels the same type of effort could be used to finally build a skate park, which is a facility that has been requested for many years.  Mr. Harkins noted that skateboarding is the fastest growing sport in the country today.  It has become a traditional sport for children in the age range of 8 to 15 years.  The Park District has spent sizeable amounts of money on facilities for other sports, and the time has come to provide a skate park facility in the community.

Commissioner Marcus thanked all who spoke.  

During discussion, Commissioner Wolff repeated his preference for Hibbard Park as a location citing heavy usage and plans for the reconfiguration of the baseball fields at Community Playfield.  Commissioner Cohen suggested that all commissioners go to Community Playfield on a Saturday or Sunday to see for themselves the issues of heavy usage, parking and traffic problems.  Commissioner O’Malley commented that if public hearings are scheduled, it appears that the Board is committed to construction of a skate park.

President Miller noted that this is an issue that has been on the table for at least ten to fifteen years and it is time for the Board to act.

Commissioner Marcus moved and Commissioner Wolff seconded a motion to  authorize the Board as a Committee of the Whole to conduct public hearings on a potential skate park at Community Playfield or Hibbard Park.

By a roll call vote, voting Yes -- Commissioners Brault, Cohen, Marcus, Miller, O'Malley, and Wolff; voting No -- None.    Absent – Commissioner Crowley.  Motion carried.

By a roll call vote, voting Yes -- Commissioners Brault, Cohen, Marcus, Miller, O'Malley, and Wolff; voting No -- None.    Absent – Commissioner Crowley.  Motion carried.

Golf Operations – In Committee Chair Crowley’s absence, Commissioner Cohen reported that the Committee met on April 23rd.  The Committee reviewed a letter from Richard Nopar commending Cliff, Dennis, and Jamie for their excellent work under very difficult conditions.  In addition, the Committee heard comments from Mrs. Nopar regarding the location of the new clubhouse and landscaping plans. Her concerns were discussed and addressed by Superintendent Lambrecht and the Committee.

Commissioner Cohen asked Superintendent Lambrecht to report to the Board on the progress of the clubhouse construction.

Superintendent Lambrecht reported that excellent progress has been made in the last few weeks. The roof is essentially complete with some details yet to be done, and the carpenters have been installing the soffit and fascia trim all around the building.   Temporary enclosures have been installed on the building until the windows are installed the first week of June.  Superintendent Lambrecht further reported that a great deal of the masonry has been completed, including most of the block in the basement and the exterior brick and stone with the exception of some columns on the east and the main entrance.  He also noted that work on the main entrance began this week.  In addition, the fire sprinklers are complete in the basement, and the fire department connection in front of the building has been installed. Superintendent Lambrecht noted that the electricians have installed the recessed light fixtures in the porch ceilings and have started assembling the circuit breaker panels, and the electrical service was livened last  month enabling the use of building power.

Superintendent Lambrecht further reported that the plumbers have almost completed the rough in plumbing in all of the bathrooms.  In addition, the HVAC contractor has completed installation of most of the ductwork, and is now installing dampers and insulating the ducts.

Superintendent Lambrecht concluded his report by noting that all the contractors have been working at full speed and he anticipates that the building will be ready for occupancy on August 1st.

Director Porter stated that once the building is occupied, the trailers will be moved out of the parking lot and work will take place after Labor Day on the final phase of the parking lot.  He also noted that landscaping around the building will be put in prior to occupancy and landscaping of the front entrance will be done in the fall.

Commissioner Cohen thanked Superintendent Lambrecht and Director Porter for their reports, and continued with her report on the April 23rd Golf Operations Committee meeting.

Commissioner Cohen reported that Food Service Manager Cliff Butler reported that concessions are doing well.  He stated that construction workers are spending about $100 per day for lunch.  He also noted that the first holiday party has been booked for December 1, 2005 and will feature drinks and appetizers for 140 people. 

Golf Manager Dennis Callaghan reported rounds totaled 2,401, which is down 450 rounds from last year when the course opened two weeks earlier.  He stated that the Al McLean, Jr. Tournament has 129 registrations, and that the new on-line tee time system has been used for the last few weeks and seems to be working well.  Staff is now booking lessons on line, which is also going well.

Golf Operations Manager Mike Matchen reported that the new tees on 5 and 16 as well as the new 18th fairway are open.  He noted that golfers will continue to play to the old 18 green until the Memorial Day weekend when the new green will open.

Financial Planning and Policy – Commissioner O’Malley reported that the Committee met on April 25th.  At that time, Financial Adviser Eric Anderson updated the Committee on the refunding and limited tax bond issue proposal for financing the completion of the new golf clubhouse and other capital projects.  Commissioner O’Malley asked Mr. Anderson to update the Board on the bond ordinances scheduled for approval.

Mr. Anderson began his report by explaining that the District had a Moody’s Bond Rating review last week and Moody’s confirmed a AA3 Rating, which is a high rating.  The District has had two bond rating increases in the last three years.  The current AA3 rating is well above the average Park District rating.

Mr. Anderson stated that the three ordinances on the agenda for approval this evening provide for the refunding of existing debt and the issuance of a limited park bond for financing the completion of the golf clubhouse and other capital projects.  He noted that the proposed financing has been recommended by the Financial Planning and Policy Committee and also has been reviewed by the Board, and the proposed bond issues satisfy the goals of providing the necessary financing while maintaining maximum flexibility for future bond issues.  Mr. Anderson then gave brief explanations of the three ordinances.

Ordinance 2005-O-2 provides for the issuance of $5,750,000 in general obligation refunding park bonds, Series 2005A.  The proceeds of this bond issue will be deposited in an escrow account to pay a portion of the outstanding debt for the 2001 Pool and 2002 Mallinckrodt referendum bond issues.

Ordinance 2005-O-3 provides for the issuance of up to $2,500,000 taxable general obligation refunding park bonds, Series 2005B.  The proceeds from this bond issue will be deposited in an escrow account to pay a portion of the outstanding debt of the 2004A refunding bond issue.

Ordinance 2005-O-4 provides for the issuance of up to $1,400,000 general obligation limited park bonds Series 2005C.  Up to $1 million of the bond proceeds will go toward financing the completion of the golf clubhouse and the remaining funds will be set aside for other park district capital projects.

Commissioner O’Malley moved and Commissioner Wolff seconded a motion to approve Ordinance 2005-O-2,  AN ORDINANCE PROVIDING FOR THE ISSUE OF $5,750,000 GENERAL OBLIGATION REFUNDING PARK BONDS, SERIES 2005A, OF THE WILMETTE PARK DISTRICT, COOK COUNTY, ILLINOIS as recommended by the Financial Planning and Policy Committee
