Wednesday, December 10, 2008 – 7:00 pm City Hall Council Chambers
Tonight the PSUD school board is meeting to discuss the Measure E interim housing issue. This discussion continues the topic from the joint school board and city council meeting last week. (Watch the meeting online or read the meeting minutes).
Last week there were many options that had been discussed, but at the joint meeting it has become clear that the neighborhoods, the school communities, and the sports groups all favor Blair park.
With so many of Piedmont’s youth in sports programs, it’s pretty likely you received an email recently from either Eric Havian, president of the Piedmont Soccer Club or Glyn Burge, president of the Piedmont Baseball Foundation. Both are extremely well thought out and make the case for Blair Park as the best location for the portables, for the short term, and more importantly, long term improvement to Piedmont’s parks and recreation facilities. The Blair Park site also reduces the “sunk costs” that can eat into Measure E funds. Money that could be put to use repairing buildings instead of removing temporary plumbing and electrical from a portable site. With Blair Park, much of the infrastructure will be used in the sports field project.
I encourage you to participate by attending tonight’s meeting or sending an email to email@example.com
