4. Public Comment Adrian Hersfelder Mom of teenagers who lives in Ypsilanti and is a part lecturer at EMU. She encouraged the commission to look for opportunities for collaboration with EMU, as there are limited opportunities for recreation for youth in Ypsilanti. Toni Spears Thanked the Commission for coordinating stewardship endowment meeting recently. There was a general consensus that 15 million was too much set aside; staff presented an alternative approach that had some support. Fred Wilkins Mr. Wilkins is a neighbor of Scio Woods Preserve. He and his family have had some issues with a trail that was close to the property borders. After talking to staff regarding the issues, the trail was re-routed to prevent users from coming so close to his house. One patron was very upset with the trail reroute and approached Mr. Wilkins regarding it. Mr. Wilkins noted he enjoys being a neighbor of the preserve, and was appreciative of the trial rerouting to keep people away from his property.

Special Initiatives

Border-to-Border Trail (B2B) Davis construction continues to construct the first phase of The Loop (M-52 at Werkner Rd. to Green Lake Campground). Grading, wall installation, and boardwalk construction is underway. The second phase of The Loop (M-52 at the Green Lake Campground to N. Territorial) is now finalizing the engineering and easement plans because the DNR closed on the former Cunningham property. The trail alignment uses a portion of that land. Preliminary engineering, survey work, and environmental assessments are nearly complete from Zeeb Road at Huron River Drive to Wagner Road (3 miles). A Letter of Intent between the Parks and Recreation Commission, City of Ann Arbor, and Huron Waterloo Pathways Initiative was executed, which outlines the terms of collaboration for a feasibility study to connect Barton Nature Area to Bandemer Park (the existing terminus of the B2B in the City).

Re: Staebler Farmhouse and Chicken Coop Repairs

Background The Staebler Farm Master Plan adopted by the Commission in 2017, noted one of the park s significant features was the intact farmstead that includes the farmhouse, outbuildings and barns. The Master Plan also recognized rehabilitation of historic buildings will be needed in order to be utilized for educational programming or interpretation. Since the adoption of the Master plan, staff has been working on plans for the first phase of the development of the park site. As part of this initial phase, certain elements of both the farmhouse and chicken coop have deteriorated and necessary repairs must be made in order to preserve the structures for future park use. The gabled-ell farmhouse at Staebler Farm Park was built around 1870 in a style commonly found on farmsteads throughout Washtenaw County during this era. The white shed-roof chicken coop, south of the farmhouse, was built in the 1920s

Tagged Passions:boards and commissions, parks, recognition, development, agriculture, Development, and historic

Discussion In 2016, staff engaged an architect from O X Studios to complete a condition assessment report of the farmhouse along with cost opinions for the identified needed rehabilitation. The comprehensive report outlined both short and long-term recommendations. The first phase included recommendations to preserve the structure until a formal plan for its intended long-term use has been developed. The house is generally in fair condition, however, there are some deficiencies that need immediate attention, to ensure the safety and structural integrity of the building, such as new roofing, gutters and downspout; demolition of exterior stairway and farmhouse chimney; window repairs; replacement of basement staircase; various carpentry and masonry work.

Tagged Passions:demolition

In December 2017, Park Planning staff contracted James Renaud, of JFR Architects, to develop plans and specifications to repair both the farmhouse and chicken coop. It was determined that the chicken coop roof was not built to withstand typical loads, leading to roof failure. Therefore, the entire roofing system needs to be rebuilt, along with its north wall which had experienced significant water damage. It is planned that the project would be completed by early fall.

In April, a Request for Proposals was advertised by the Purchasing Department for formal bids to repair the farmhouse and chicken coop. Four potential bidders attended a pre-bid meeting on April 17, 2018, and two submitted a bid on May 10. The low bid was from Carver Construction Co. (Ann Arbor) in the amount of 66,500.00 to repair the farmhouse and 33,276.00 to repair the chicken coop for a total cost of 99,776.00.

Re: MNRTF Grant Agreement: Russell Property Background In 2016, the Natural Areas Preservation Program (NAPP), received nomination 16.268 for the J. Russell property. The 17 acre nomination is located in Scio Township, contains a five-acre oak- savannah and has nearly a half-mile of frontage on the Huron River on Barton Pond. It also has the potential to be accessed by a future segment of the Border-to-Border Trail. At the close of Round 16, the Natural Areas Technical Advisory Committee recommended the J. Russell Property for further consideration by the Commission. At a meeting on March 21, 2017, the Commission passed a resolution authorizing staff to submit a grant application in the amount of 391,600 (61 of the estimated value) and titled Acquisition of the Huron River Preserve to the Michigan Natural Resources Trust Fund (MNRTF) to request funding to assist with purchase of the property. Discussion On December 6, 2017, the grant was recommended for award by the MNRTF board for the full value requested by the Commission. Execution of the Project Agreement between the DNR and WCPARC is necessary prior to incurring reimbursable expenses, which include a survey, Phase 1 ESA, and an appraisal. Pending the results of the due diligence, the Commission will be asked at a future meeting to authorize a purchase agreement with the landowner, with a detailed budget at that time. A portion of the purchase will be paid from NAPP millage funds, and a portion from Parks Acquisition and Development funds. Additional partnership discussions are also in process with Scio Township, City of Ann Arbor Greenbelt, and Legacy Land Conservancy to leverage Parks funds. Recommendation Based on staff review, it is my recommendation that the Commission pass the attached resolution to accept the grant and authorize staff to execute the project agreement with the DNR for the 391,600 Michigan Natural Resources Trust Fund Grant titled Acquisition of the Huron River Preserve .

Re: Riverside Park Accessible Playground Proposal City of Ypsilanti Background Riverside Park is a centrally-located park on the Huron River and Border-to-Border Trail near downtown Ypsilanti. It hosts many major events within the City, and serves as the primary pedestrian and nonmotorized link between Depot Town and Downtown. The park is accessible from the north and the south, and has dedicated parking at both these entrances and until the early 1990s, there was a playground in Riverside. In early 2015, a group of neighbors came together before the City of Ypsilanti Parks Recreation Commission to ask them to pursue construction of a new playground in Riverside Park, as there was not a centrally-located nor an accessible playground in the City. With the Recreation Commission s support, these neighbors and other interested parties formed a subcommittee to design, locate, and fundraise for the playground project. A Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) was secured for 125,000 to construct the playground. The stakeholders initially pursued a unique, custom design of tubular metal, called a playline design. This design was accessible and artistic, but it became clear at public meetings that there would be issues with being recognized as a traditional playground. Thus, more traditional designs were pursued in 2017 and ultimately the subcommittee selected GameTime s Campaigner (images of the playground will be provided at the meeting), due to it being the most accessible of the options. The playground was presented to the public for feedback on April 9, and went to the City Parks Recreation Commission on April 10th. They affirmed the selection and recommended it to City Council for moving forward.

The cost to complete the project is 185,000 and includes equipment, safety surface and professional installation. However, this total cost exceeds the 125,000 funding awarded by CDBG. The City of Ypsilanti is requesting 60,000 so they can complete the City s first accessible playground. The City has agreed to place a sign at the playground to acknowledge the generous contribution made by WCPARC.
