i.    Updates on playground structure - do we have any formal recommendations?
    1.    From last meeting Kirsten recommendations:
a.    If the playground is moved up, the proximity to the riverbed should be taken into consideration and some sort of barrier for safety would be needed. 
b.    And if it cannot be moved then Kirsten felt that thought should be put into where you place different structure pieces and pieces that are already at ground level but also allow for a lot of water to pass through should be chosen.
c.    Kirsten mentioned concrete barriers (Jersey Barriers) to help protect the playground from flooding on the parking lot side may be an option.
