The city is considering converting the playfield at King Park to artificial turf. They want hear from the hear from the community.
Here’s the email they sent to HANCSM:
Dear Homeowner/Neighborhood Association Representative:
The San Mateo Parks and Recreation Department is developing a plan for converting some natural grass fields to synthetic turf. A 12-member Community Advisory Committee (CAC) representing users, neighborhood and general community interests is providing guidance on the plan. The City is also seeking broader community comments to make the best possible decisions as to which fields to include in the plan and what the priorities of implementation should be. The five fields currently under consideration are Bayside School, Fiesta Meadows, Joinville, Los Prados and Martin Luther King, Jr.
We are offering two ways for community members to provide feedback before a recommended plan is developed. These are:
In Person at a Community Workshop
Saturday, April 6, 2013
San Mateo Senior Center
This is an open house format- stop by any time between 10am-2pm
On Line at San Mateo Town Hall
This is a web-based community feedback page
This topic will be available for comment Monday 4/1/13 through Saturday 4/13/13
We would greatly appreciate it if you would forward this email message to your membership so they can be aware of the project and provide their perspectives if desired.
