The Grain Valley Board of Aldermen met Monday, January 27th, passing several resolutions and ordinances focused on maintenance of parks and area trails.
First on the agenda was an ordinance prohibiting parking on the west side of Pamela Blvd. and in front of the fire hydrants and mailboxes on the east side of Pamela Blvd. Interim City Administrator Ken Murphy indicated this ordinance was driven by complaints by businesses in the area. The ordinance passed unanimously.
A resolution related to trail improvements to the Dillingham Road connector trail was also passed. The project will connect two separate recreational trails on the east side of Dillingham Road, just north of Duncan Road. The project will run concurrently with the Community Development Department’s Dillingham Road Waterline Project. The City will realize some savings by completing both projects at the same time. The projected cost for the project is $9,272.
The purchase of 20 picnic tables to replace existing tables at the Pavilion in Armstrong Park and maintenance and replacement lamps at the Monkey Mountain baseball fields were also approved.
The City of Grain Valley will host an open house on Monday, February 3rd from 5:00pm—7:00pm in Council Chambers at City Hall for residents to meet informally with the design team for the proposed Grain Valley Community Campus.
Designs for the proposed recreation center, city hall, police department, and other Sni-A-Bar Farms site amenities will be presented in an informal meeting with citizens. Citizens are encouraged to share ideas and opinions with the design team; there will be no formal presentation.
Interim Deputy City Administrator Theresa Osenbaugh shared information regarding the event with the Board, stating that the informal event is an opportunity for residents to “be a part of the process”.
