All members were in attendance but one. Tim White, Coach and representative for the Sports Program at Julian High, returned as previously suggested. Tim presented a detailed wish list for the Julian High School Baseball Field improvements along with a proposed bid for the project from the company Sports Field Services, Inc. White is requesting the high school baseball field be placed on the priority list for PLDO Funds. After going over the list and asking many questions of White, the one remaining question was what's the top priority to make the field playable. He stated it would have to be the infield. Conditions make playing on the field unsafe to the athletes and so they play at Jess Martin Park. The JCPG voted to make a recommendation to the Board of Supervisors as follows: JCPG recommends placing the Julian High School Baseball Infield as the second item on the PLDO Funds priority list. JCPG also recommends the amount of $40,000.00 for this project. Item passed. JCPG also has the task of approving recommendations to the Board of Supervisors for the ARB. At the last meeting the Group approved two seats and had two more to fill. Since there were no other applicants at the time the process was again opened up. JCPG received two applications (lan Scattergo0d and Jill Corlew) for review at this meeting. Both candidates gave a brief background history of themselves and what they feel about the Julian area. JCPG questioned them on how they would handle policy, procedures and personal preference. The group approved submittal of a recommendation to the Board of Supervisors for the filling of one seat on the ARB by lan Scattergood. At this time, one seat still remains open and will be re-addressed at the June meeting. Chairman Shelver will post notifications for applications with a deadline of June 2nd. This concluded all items that required action, all others were for discussion only. The next regular scheduled meeting is set for May 11, 2009. All members of the community are encouraged to attend.
