MATTERS FROM THE AUDIENCE:

Sandra Hon rides her bicycle to and around Pantera Park and has seen a lot of people walking their dogs and most of the dogs are under control. She witnessed one incident where there was a dog off-leash in the field and another incident where a man who had his dog restrained yelled at her to restrain her dog because they appeared to be gearing up to fight. Some people who walk their dogs don t pick up after their dogs even though they carry doggie bags and leave excrement along the edges of the field. However, on the whole, most people are good about cleaning up after their dogs.

fighting in the dog park, especially at the large dog park. PMS/Jordan said he had not received any complaints or incident reports. Usually, people who take their dogs to the dog park self-police according to the posted rules.

PRD/Wright reported that the pickleball program project is out-to-bid to renovate one of the existing tennis courts into four pickleball courts. The City has been running a pilot program for the past year and a half that has been very successful and included a Healthy Diamond Bar event in July. There is much excitement for permanent pickleball courts in Diamond Bar. The City Council approved the project during budget consideration for this fiscal year and has a maximum of 30,000 for the project. If all goes as planned, construction will likely take place late September/early October.

Tagged Passions:parks and recreation

Commission discussed attendance and asked staff to review the current monthly meeting schedule with the goal to improve time-management and operational efficiencies to make sure the best resources of the City were utilized for staff and the Commissioners. Some of the challenges that the Commission has seen over time include attendance, pertinent agenda items and length of meetings. Any potential changes to the Commission s meeting schedule would have to be approved by the City Council according to the Diamond Bar Municipal Code.

As staff looked closely at this item, it was determined that the

Commissioners have varying work schedules, traffic conditions, etc. and Commissioner s attendance has varied from time to time. Over the past year or so, there has been lack of quorum, cancellations and meetings

with only three or four Commissioners. Staff also looked at how often new items and new business was brought before the Commission for input as well as, recognitions including Sportsmanship Award winners, park design elements (Sunset Crossing Park and Heritage Park) and Canyon Loop Trail which will likely come before the Commission in September. There are generally four meetings a year that might be unique and run typically more than 30 minutes and these meetings require a sufficient amount of time for staff to prepare and commuting time for Commissioners. Public Comments are typically rare from meeting to meeting and staff has come to learn that most residents call, email, or visit City Council throughout the year with staff providing customer service that generally includes a timely response to residents so they are not left waiting for a response until a meeting occurs. Likewise, should a Commissioner have an item of concern they can receive immediate feedback from staff. Staff looked at several options for the Commission to discuss and
Tagged Passions:recognition, business, council, boards and commissions, parks, and trails

consider: Option A a bi-monthly meeting to be held on Thursdays at 6:30 p.m. for the months of January, March, May, July, September, November, and special meetings as needed. This schedule would be similar to other cities such as San Dimas, West Covina, Norco and San Moreno. Option B a quarterly meeting to be held on Thursdays at 6:30 p.m. for the months of January, April, July and November, and special meetings as needed.

Chair/Orona said that he also hoped the City Council would adopt Option A as recommended because he believed it would be more efficient.

SUBJECT: Canyon Loop Multi-Use Trail Project Design

Tagged Passions:parks, trails, and recreation

RECOMMENDATION: Review and provide feedback to staff.

No additional detail provided

The Parks and Recreation Department has developed a conceptual design for the Canyon Loop Multi-Use Trail, which is a 1.29-mile trail loop within the City s Open Space Zone. The goal of this conceptual plan is to provide safe, convenient pedestrian and bicyclist access for recreation, exercise, and enjoyment of the natural environment.

The Canyon Loop Trail is located within the center of the Summitridge Park Trail system comprised of nearly five miles of trail adjacent to the Diamond Bar Center. This system currently consists of five trails and three trailheads. An area of focus for this project includes identifying deficiencies and rendering it more accessible. The project will realign the trail, stabilize the path, provide water diverts, cobblestone swales, and landscape ties or steps within steep grades where necessary. In addition, the design will include the creation of rest areas with amenities such as benches and shade structures. To better educate and inform trail users, updated interpretive and directional signage will be included. Since August 2019, the City has contracted with landscape architect Richard Fisher Associates (RFA). RFA has extensive experience designing and developing park and trail projects throughout southern California. RFA provides the technical expertise and support while providing the City with potential trail design and amenity options, followed by final construction plans, specifications, and cost estimates. The project construction is funded by several fund sources, such as Park Development
