Community members, Brent and
Campbell Huberty (archers) and business owner John Larsen (Bwana Archery)
addressed the commission in regards to adding an archery park in Roseville. There is a void of public archery ranges in

future date with a power point presentation and information.

2. COMPREHENSIVE PLAN COMMITTEE REVIEW AND
Radel provided an overview of the Comp
Plan chapter addressing Parks, Open Space and Recreation – this meeting is
intended for the Parks and Recreation Commission to provide input, not a
complete redraft of the document.
The Comp Plan update process started in October
2007. Background research was conducted
in fall 2007 with attention to the Imagine Roseville 2025 outcomes.
The initial Comp Plan open House took place in
March 2008, 70-80 residents were in attendance and the session focused on
future land use.
The Steering committee has been focused on goals
and policies; they have worked to boil down raw data into future projections.
The parks, open space and recreation chapter has
been prepared with the intent that there will be future master planning process
utilizing the department system plan and Imagine Roseville 2025 outcomes. 95% of the parks, open space and recreation
chapter remain consistent/similar to the previous comp
plan. The department systems plan is to
be referenced in the Comp Plan.
Grefenberg commented that the steering committee
does not have time to address the parks and recreation plan, the committee is
overwhelmed and looks to the Parks and Recreation Commission to move the master
The assumption of the steering committee and
others is that Parks and Recreation Master Planning should be done.
Discussion included the need to craft a policy
that addressed the need for a higher level of park maintenance and funding.
Discussion of chapter sections
followed with suggested adjustments taken by Radel to incorporate.
Commissioners requested a second
look of the parks, open spaces and recreation chapter to review changes.
Commissioner Johnson recommended
the Commission send a letter of recognition and appreciation to Frank Rog and
the Central Park Foundation following the Council action to rename the amphitheatre
the Frank Rog Amphitheatre.
Meeting adjourned at 8:30 pm
