Angel <br />Park, a future home site development, is owned by Jerry’s Homes. 4.22 acres in the <br />development are being considered for a donation to the city. Debris of John Deere 55 gallon <br />drums were found on the fore mentioned property, causing the DNR to be concerned about <br />hazardous materials on the property. John Deere removed all materials off site and the parcel <br />was cleared of environmental concerns. John Deere prefers to idle the land to lessen risk of <br />liability in the future. The City is considering use as an amenity/park feature instead of a <br />grassy area. <br />The Park Board held discussion as to whether they would like to pursue the land as park <br />ground. <br /> <br />Postma made a motion for the City to continue to pursue the parcel of land as a park, <br />subject to: <br />1.) The developer being responsible for maintenance of the detention area until a large <br />percentage of the homes are constructed. <br />2.) The large open area slope being flattened to a 2-3% grade to create a more user-friendly <br />area. <br />3.) The developer seeding the steep areas around the detention basin with a ground cover <br />that does not require mowing. <br />4.) After grading, the developer would seed the remainder of the areas with a turf grass mix. <br />5.) The access between homes being a minimum twenty foot wide easement. <br />th <br />6.) Plumbing being stubbed onto the park property at 164 and Winston cul-de-sac to allow <br />a future drinking fountain and accommodations provided for possible future park <br />lighting. <br />7.) Review by the City Attorney ensuring that the City will never be responsible for any <br />further site cleanup from the known contaminants or any future discoveries. <br /> <br />Shetler seconded the motion. All signified aye, motion was approved. <br /> <br />
