CL-2218 Work Session   Item #: B.       
Meeting Date: 10/15/2019  
Subject:    Westmoreland Neighborhood Association Request to Make Improvements to City Property
From: Earl B. Reynolds, Jr.

COUNCIL ACTION
Work Session Meeting:     10/15/2019
SUMMARY
The Danville Regional Foundation (DRF) is considering the funding of an application submitted to them by the Westmoreland Neighborhood Association to make improvements to what we refer to as Westmoreland Park.  Since the property is not officially designated as park land, our Parks and Recreation Department does not budget for its maintenance.  Neither does Parks and Recreation budget to purchase equipment or make upgrades to the property. As a part of the application review process, the DRF is requesting that the Neighborhood Association document that they have been given the authority by the City to make improvements to the property.  In this regard, Assistant City Attorney Ryan Dodson has developed a “franchise” agreement that will give the Association what is needed to satisfy the DRF requirements and to ensure that the City is shielded from liability while maintaining the City's ownership interest in the property. 
BACKGROUND
In 2017, the Westmoreland Neighborhood Association, in partnership with the City, completed a Vision Plan for what is known as Westmoreland Park.  The Vision Planning Process was led by Hill Studio, Professional Planners and Landscape Architects, with a grant provided by the Danville Regional Foundation.  Since the completion of the Vision Plan, the Neighborhood Association has been hard at work trying to identify funding sources for key features of the Plan. 
RECOMMENDATION
It is recommended that the City Council approve the scheduling of this request for public hearing and vote at their November 7, 2019 Regular Business Meeting.
