Consideration will be given to land that is in the floodplain or may be considered "floodable" even though not in a federally regulated floodplain as long as, due to its elevation, it is suitable for park improvements. (a) Neighborhood park sites should be adjacent to residential areas in a manner that serves the greatest number of users. Comments: (b) Neighborhood park sites should be located so that users are not required to cross arterial roadways to access them. Comments: (c) Sites should not be severely sloped or have unusual topography which would render the land unusable for organized recreational activities. Comments: (d) Sites should have existing trees or other scenic elements. Comments: (e) Detention /retention areas will not be accepted as part of the required dedication, but may be accepted in addition to the required dedication. If accepted as part of the park, the detention /retention area design must be approved by the City staff and must meet specific parks specifications. Comments: 10 -F. 2 Parks should be easy to access and open to public view so as to benefit area development, enhance the visual character of the city, protect public safety, and minimize conflict with adjacent land uses. The following guidelines should be used in designing parks and adjacent development: (a) Where physically feasible, park sites should be located adjacent to greenways and /or schools in order to encourage both shared facilities and the potential co- development of new sites. Comments: Park Land Dedication Checklist 0/Board/Park Land Dedication/checklist /Originals/Long Version Revised.xls Page 3 (b) A proposed subdivision adjacent to a park may not be designed to restrict reasonable access to the park from other area subdivisions. Street and greenway connections to existing or future adjoining subdivisions may be required to provide reasonable access to parks. Comments: (c) Where a non - residential use must directly abut a park, the use must be separated by a screening wall or fence and landscaping. Access points to the park may be allowed by the Planning and Zoning Commission if a public benefit is established. Comments: (d) It is desirable that a minimum of fifty percent (50 %) of the perimeter of a park should abut a public street. In all cases, the City shall approve the proposed street alignment fronting on city parks. Comments: (e) Streets abutting a park shall be built in accordance with the thoroughfare plan and the standards of this ordinance; however, the City may require any residential street built adjacent to a park to be constructed to collector width to ensure access and prevent traffic congestion. The developer may request oversize participation in such an instance. Comments: Staff Recommendations: Staff recommends acceptance of parkland dedication fees in lieu of land. No future phases of this subdivision are planned. The size of this project will not generate adequate land dedication (.81 acres) to acquire a suitable park site. Section 10 - G: Approval: Parks and Recreation Advisory At the May 11, 2004 Board meeting, the Board accepted the fees of Board: $45,592 in lieu of the land dedication Planning and Zoning Commission: City Council: Park Land Dedication Checklist 0/Board/Park Land Dedication /checklist/Originals/Long Version Revised.xls Page 4
