Approval of Updated Concept Plan for Renaissance 5 Acre Park on the 19 Acre Property.
  • Not in the memo but my thoughts after discussions with neighbors as to why we would have three children's playgrounds so close together? Why not remove some more of the children's play structures and focus this specific park on activities for adults & seniors? Keep the splashpad, the sports courts and a very limited amount of playground but find activities and community gathering places that are not available elsewhere.
  •  Several Pickleball courts could be installed and the facility could house a league, the same could also be said for Shuffleboard courts, Horseshoe pits, an artificial putting green and maybe a chess pavilion could be built into the hillside on the corner allowing a shaded peaceful place to congregate between the two trail heads overlooking the park. I'm thinking that the band shell needs to go to Brook Run but we need to be creative with the hillside in this park concept.

Looking forward to seeing the Brook Run Multi-Use Trail continue!! Checkout this Presentation put together & was posted from Heneghan's Blog back in 2011 on Multi-Use Trails. Look at the comments & the many other references I provided.

In 2012 I updated my presentation based on new trails approved & being built in Metro Atlanta since 2011. Think about a regional connected network...

And lastly, here's real-world examples of trails in Metro Atlanta that have been built IN FLOODPLAINS, using best management practices.
