PARKS AND RECREATION BOARD DIRECTOR’S UPDATE DATE: January 2024 COMMUNITY ENGAGEMENT EVENTS: Onion Creek Metropolitan Park All Abilities Project: The first community meeting took place on January 18th at 6:30 p.m. This initial meeting introduced the project and sought ideas and inspiration from the community. In addition, community members interested in more in-depth conversations can participate in a small group decision during the week of January 29th. The different interests and topics include mobility, hearing, vision, autism spectrum disorder and other sensory needs, and intellectual or developmental disabilities. Space is limited for these meetings, and interested people are encouraged to register for the particular interest meeting. Registration link Project webpage District 2 Bolm District Park Vision Plan Community Engagement Round #2 Virtual Meeting: The Department will be hosting the second community meeting via Zoom on Tuesday, February 13th at 6:00 p.m. Project team members will present design concepts around themes developed through feedback and responses to the first community survey. This will also mark the launch of the second community survey. Additional project information, including a link to register for the meeting and dates for community pop- ups, can be found at the project’s website. Project Webpage District 3 Bolm District Park 1 PLANNING UPDATES: All Abilities Playground at Onion Creek Metropolitan Park: The Parks and Recreation Department (Department) has teamed with Austin Parks Foundation and their consultant team, TBG Partners and Cultural Strategies, to design and develop an all abilities playground at Onion Creek Metropolitan Park in alignment with the 2015 Vision Plan. The purpose of the project is to create a destination playground to serve residents of all ages and abilities. Much work has already been done to identify important stakeholders, establish a technical advisory board, and draft a community engagement plan and schedule. The first round of community engagement kicked off with a virtual meeting on January 18th. This meeting will be followed by a survey, six small group discussions with those the playground intends to serve directly, and four in-person tabling events. Two additional rounds of similar community engagement efforts are expected to be completed by July 2024, when the schematic phase of the historic project will begin.

16-1: Meeting Minutes of December 8, 2023 original pdf

PARB Working Group - Budget December 8, 2023, 12pm - 1pm Virtual Attendees: Lane Becker, Kathryn Flowers, Nicole Merritt, Shelby Orme Absent: Jennifer Franklin 1. Overview of General Timeline & Goals of Working Group Board Member Flowers gave an overview of the budget timeline at the City of Austin. The financial analysis period begins in January and the Chief Administrative Officer of PARD will begin internal processes at that time. It is recommended that the Board submit any recommendations to Council by March. Recommendations can be made after that time, but it is not ideal. Goal of the working group is to make substantive recommendations to Council, informed by PARD needs and board member preferences, with sufficient support for maximum success during the budget process. It was determined that for transparency, minutes would be taken at each meeting and posted as backup and the next PARB meeting on this update item. 2. Strategy for Types of Budget Requests (Basis v. Unmet Need) - Backup & Collaboration with Other Boards We reviewed the two types of budget requests that come from the department, those that have a basis (in Council resolution, audit finding, state law, etc.) or those that are unmet needs. We agreed that we preferred to support those that have a basis, when possible, and that if there were urgent needs we were aware of without a basis, we may need to advocate with our council members for a basis to be established. We also discussed a need for collaborating with other Boards to strengthen recommendations, where we might have shared goals. The following boards were mentioned as possible collaborations - Joint Inclusion Committee (all Quality of Life boards/commissions); Environmental Commission, Joint Sustainability, Urban Transportation Commission, Affordable Housing Commission. Board Member Orme volunteered to look through the whole list of boards/commissions and share a full set of recommendations with the group. Additionally, Board Member Merritt suggested we should make a spreadsheet to track possible recommendations and volunteered to start that. 3. Board Member Ideas/Concerns/Goals for Working Group Board Member Merritt suggested it would be helpful to provide a cheat sheet to the full Board on timeline and what they might consider as they bring forward items for budget consideration. Board Member Flowers agreed to draft something and circulate it. Board Member Becker suggested we look at past PARB recommendations related to budget- cycle and volunteered to pull those and …
