The Poll regarding usage options for the Somersett West Park has been closed. One hundred sixty-five (165) votes were received with the following results: 50% favoring a Dog Park, 30% for a Community Garden,18% for Sports Field and 2% for a Skate Board Park. From the results it appears that the current concept of a Community Garden is not necessarily the favorite theme of most Somersett residents. However, given the size of the Park, perhaps both a Dog Park and a Community Garden can be accommodated.
Since funding for the Park by the Reno Parks and Recreation Department appears to be a long way off, the SOA BOD has sufficient time to solicit and consider resident preferences and negotiate with the Parks and Recreation Department accordingly. Hopefully this will occur in a resident participant format prior to start of construction.
Thanks to all residents who participated in the poll.
