Resolution  No.  34-2018.    A  Resolution  adopting  the  Master  Plans  for  Monroe  Bicentennial
Commons, Monroe Community Park, and Baker Sports Complex.

Background.   Monroe Bicentennial Commons. The document is a master plan to transform the old 
Americana Amusement Park into an asset for the community.  The master planning process included 
site analysis, public input, and redevelopment recommendations.  The intent is to develop the park 
in a manner that recognizes the historical significance of the site while providing new 
recreational amenities for our citizens and larger region.  The master plan shows the proposed 
features  and  their  orientation  throughout  the   site.  The  recommendations  include  detailed 
descriptions of the features proposed; an operations plan describing potential program offerings, 
maintenance and management requirements, and opportunities for revenue; and a cost estimate for the 
development of the property as presented in the master plan.

Monroe  Community  Park.     Brandstetter  Carroll,  Inc.  has  completed  the  Master  Plan  for 
Community Park, it has been approved by the Park Board and presented to Council at the May 8th 
meeting. The recommendations include detailed descriptions of the features proposed and a cost 
estimate  for  the  development  of  the  property  as  presented  in  the  master  plan.  Some  of 
 the recommendations  included  are  a  sprayground,  updated  playground  equipment,  outdoor  
fitness equipment, a diamond baseball fields and concession complex, trails and additional parking 
to accommodate both the current and future needs. We are asking that Council officially adopt the 
plan. Some grant applications require the formal adoption of the plan by Council to be included 
with the grant application if we desire to submit for them for various projects in the parks.

Baker Sports Complex. Brandstetter Carroll, Inc. has completed the Master Plan for Baker Park, it 
has been approved by the Park Board and was presented to Council at the May 8th meeting. The 
recommendations for the plan include detailed descriptions of the features proposed and a cost 
estimate  for  the  development  of  the  property  as  presented  in  the  master  plan.  Some  of 
 the recommendations  are  a  dog  park,  nature  trails,  a  natural  playground,  community  
gardens  and possibly an additional disc golf course. We are asking that Council to officially 
adopt the plan. Some grant applications require the formal adoption of the plan by Council to be 
included with the
grant application if we desire to submit for them for various projects in the parks.
