  • Urban Forestry Taskforce Update – The taskforce was created via resolution of the Council with appointments made by the Mayor. The taskforce has met multiple times and Parks staff will provide an update on this work to the Commission in June or July.
  • Park and Open Space Plan – The POSP is being diligently worked on by the Long Range Planning Subcommittee and staff. An initial draft will come to the BPC over the coming months.
  • Events – Parks staff will provide an update on the City's work in reviewing street use events through a Racial Equity and Social Justice process. This will occur after that process is completed in the 2nd half of 2018.
  • 2019 Capital Budget – Staff will work to provide an update on the 2019 Budget submission to the BPC in September or October once the Mayor's budget is released.
  • Integrated Pest Management – The BPC will review a resolution establishing a task force on reviewing the City's IPM plan at the May meeting. Parks staff will work to provide periodic updates on the work of that task force and will seek guidance from the BPC in regard to its input on matters related to IPM. The first update is likely to occur between August and September.
