To whom it may concern...
People's Park (through my research) has about 20 to 30 nude or (otherwise) bathers on the north shore of the Spokane River on any given warm day. (I read this) There are also some lewd men who hook-up with other men in that area. This is ((I'm sure) an unspoken reason that the Park Department gave this to us when I met with them in December.
Similarly to Highbridge, we would essentially be the agents of change for that area. In my opinion we would need to proceed with a step by step plan to "re-identify" and "redefine" the area. There will be other sport entities using this area in the near future. I plan to meet with these other users and coordinate the development of the park in conjunction with their plans.
Concerning the limitations of 200ft from the banks. I plan to meet with our Park Dept. contact concerning this and other details in the near future. I hope to sell them on the idea of having tee-pads near the banks and not baskets (for obvious reasons). There are other concerns as well that need clarification... prior to design.
More on this at the SDGA Election Meeting on January 11th at 6:00pm at Stadium Pizza.
See you there.
