Community solution proposition1

Community Solution Proposition

  • Increase Park Ranger Patrol

  • Councilmember Herrera proposed and voted for approval of funding of more Park Rangers for neighborhood parks in 2014-15 budget.

    3 additional park rangers assigned to hot spots. Operational in January 2015.


Community solution proposition2

Community Solution Proposition

  • Install and/or alter sprinkler timers in park to keep trespassers off of the grass


Community solution proposition3

Community Solution Proposition

  • Install and/or alter sprinkler timers in park to keep trespassers off of the grass

  • We have tested in other parks and what occurs is more vandalism. Irrigation heads get knocked off creating repeated flow. Not recommended.


Community solution proposition4

Community Solution Proposition

  • Install motion sensing lights at the top lookout that turn on an hour after dark.


Community solution proposition5

Community Solution Proposition

  • Install motion sensing lights at the top lookout that turn on an hour after dark.

  • This is an option. A similar site was estimated at $20,000. We would be happy to explore this option to determine actual costs. Explore adding camera. Installing lights do not always deter. Historically, lights have been vandalized and copper wire stolen, so there is a chance this will occur.


Next steps

Next Steps

  • Work with Parks Staff to explore suggestions – costs

  • Continue to report illegal behavior in the park to police

  • Form Neighborhood Watch Groups

  • Establish “Friends of Fowler Creek Park”
