How do I go about requesting a designated, fenced, off-leash dog park? Smiles...Birdie
Great question Birdie! There were a few similar requests
at our February workshop so you will definitely see that as an option included
in our upcoming online survey. There will likely be an additional comments
section where you can expand on that, if needed. With enough public interest
and support, we would discuss that and many other ideas at our next workshop.
Thank you for engaging with the Santa Clara Park design
I would for eugene to add a skatepark for this 35 acre site. Would you consider that?
Yes, we will consider a skatepark and look forward to
discussing that with a larger group. It’s always interesting and
informative to discuss the possibilities, especially for a park that will reach
so many people in the Santa Clara community. If you weren’t able to attend the
February workshop, I’ll give you an overview of where we are in the planning
process. Right now is the time to “cast a wide net” and get all of our possible
ideas on the table, skate park included. It doesn’t guarantee that we will
have one but be we will absolutely consider it. For a community park to be
successful we need meaningful conversations about everyone’s ideas and ideally
get feedback from a broad cross section of the public. If you and your
friends are passionate about a skate park then we would really like to hear
from you. Please look for “skate park” in our upcoming online survey and
continue to give us feedback throughout this process.
Thank you for taking the time to engage with our Santa
Clara park design process,
Santa Clara Community Park Master Plan:
Possible to donate anything to the park? I do have a 7 foot sapling Redwood Sequoia I would like to drop in the ground somewhere and, hoping that it can be planted without it being a problem for decades to come. At some point, if you are unsure, this thing will likely grow fairly quickly after first year planted, and big enough to hide a small car at some point by the trunk alone.
Thank you for reaching out to us and for offering this
specimen tree for Santa Clara Park. Our donor policy no longer allows for trees
or plant materials to be donated, with few exceptions when appropriate. Since
the park at Santa Clara is just now going into a design phase, we would have to
wait about a year before we could have a meaningful conversation about whether
this site could be an exception to our donor policy. If it is time sensitive
and needs to be transplanted this year, we would have to politely decline the
offer. If you wanted to wait and have this conversation later or perhaps
consider an alternate park as a home for the tree then I will encourage you to
reach out to me offline and we can talk further.
Thank you so much for reaching out and for being engaged
with the Santa Clara Park design process!
