8. Parks & Recreation
A) Action to approve a new Carson City Fairgrounds and Fuji Park Conceptual Site Development Plan.
Staff Summary: Parks and Recreation Department staff, as well as Parks and Recreation Commissioners Donna Curtis and Pete Livermore, worked with members of the Carson City Fairgrounds/Fuji Park Users Coalition over several months to develop a new Conceptual Site Development Plan for the facility and the park. The process consisted of many hours of meetings between staff, commissioners, and coalition members. The Parks and Recreation Commission approved a recommendation to the Board of Supervisors for approval of the new plan during their August 15, 2006 meeting. It is the opinion of both staff and the Parks and Recreation Commission that this new plan is superior to the previous plan because of the efficiency of the design, the provision for increased parking, and most importantly because the new plan addresses increased safety measures that include a separation of participants and contestants from the public. This is accomplished by re-aligning the arena from its current roughly north-south orientation to a west-east orientation. It is estimated that the cost to develop the Fairgrounds portion of the plan will be approximately $3.5 million dollars.
