Title

Renaming City Park on 5th Avenue to Carolyn Beatrice Parker Park (B)

 

Request to update the Interlocal Agreement with the School Board of Alachua County to rename the school park at Carolyn Beatrice Parker Elementary, which was recently renamed.

 

Explanation

In January 2019, the School Board of Alachua County and the City of Gainesville executed an Interlocal Agreement for Joint Use of the Elementary School Recreation Facilities to create the Neighborhood Park, as recommended in the Parks, Recreation and Cultural Affairs Vision 2020 Master Plan and approved by the City Commission as a project to be undertaken by Wild Spaces and Public Places

 

Since that time, there has been a desire by neighbors in Gainesville to have the school renamed, and the School Board recently approved to change the school to Carolyn Beatrice Parker Elementary School.  It logically follows that the park name would change accordingly, to now be called the Carolyn Beatrice Parker Park.

 

Fiscal Note

The only expense associated with this change is the cost of creating and installing a new signage at the park.  This is estimated to cost less than $500.00 and will be paid with Wild Spaces & Public Places funds.

 

Recommendation

The City Commission approve and the Mayor sign the First Amendment to the Interlocal Agreement with the School Board of Alachua County for Joint Use of the Carolyn Beatrice Parker Park.
