John Merten displayed some designs for McKinley Square which included:

  • Adding a flat area, lower grass park to the off leash dog area.
  • Adding benches & lighting to the middle trails.
  • Splitting the children's play area and creating a slope on the upper park, and having a sweeping trail from the south end of McKinley Square to 20th & San Bruno Ave. 

Discussion ensued.

  • Concerns were raised about the removal / transfer of serpentine rock for asbestos release. 
  • Concerns were raised about the determining the priorities without costs associated with items.
  • There was a request for more information to be shared more with the community electronically or otherwise in advance and outside meetings.
