*OPEN TO THE PUBLIC* Alpine Community Park Meeting – May 15, 2019

You’re invited to an open house on Wednesday, May 15, 2019 from 6:00 – 7:00 pm at the Alpine Community Center to discuss a new community park in Alpine. The County recently acquired 98 acres of land. The property includes native habitat, mature shade trees and disturbed land, making it ideal for a mix of preserved land and various recreational amenities. Attend this meeting to learn more about the property and share your feedback on the types of amenities you’d like to see on the portion of the site that is developed with new recreational amenities. Please RSVP to the contact listed below so DPR can ensure there is capacity in the meeting room. For more info contact Judy Tjiong-Pietrzak, Department of Parks & Recreation, 1-858-966-1340 at Jim Easterling, Chairperson. George Barnett, Secretary, ACPG Parks, Trails & Conservation Subcommittee

    Michael Alena – your comment is only correct if the land is designated as “open space” land, which has it’s development rights stripped in perpetuity. The County’s 98 acres would be designated as parkland, with discretionary use of the acreage determined by the County. In reality, you have it quite backwards. Land that is in passive use could be developed in the future through expansion of existing park amenities – this is what has happened at other parks around the County, they start small and then grow. However, once land is developed for active parkland, it will never be the same again. Let’s be cautious about developing ANY of the acres in such a unique habitat area. After attending several planning meetings on this topic, I can say that people in Alpine have been pretty clear about what they want in a new park – to have some basic amenities (parking, toilets, etc.), but mostly to be left natural as it is and maintained for hiking, biking, and horseback riding.

    Remember, once land goes into passive, it can never come out again. We have Wrights for passive; use this for ACTIVE parkland.
