The Westside Community Park Committee recently received a donation in the amount of $65, 022.78 from the Trust of McIntire. This very generous donation will be put to use soon to fund the construction of 600 feet of curb, gutter and sidewalk along the eastern edge of the parking lot at the Jane Barnes Field. This will enhance the walking trail and increase the safety of players on the field by adding a curb to help prevent vehicles from accidentally driving down the embankment and onto the field.
Mike Conser, Conser Land Surveying, is donate the survey work for this project.
Construction will be done by RB Peters.
The Committee’s meeting normally held the first Wednesday of the month will be held on the second Wednesday in October. That date is October 9.

The date of the July meeting of the Committee has been changed to Wednesday, July 10, 2019. The agenda will be posted in advance here on our website.
The fields at the park are getting a much needed dose of compost today thanks to a collaboration among the Committee, the City Public Works/Parks Dept. and Konocti Youth Soccer League President, Wayne Yahnke. A HUGE thank you to Cole Creek Compost for donating the material and Forrest Kuecker Trucking for all of the free trucking to bring the material to the Park from Potter Valley. Paul Lauenroth Trucking of Kelseyville provided the spreader. We always say that the Park is a product of the support from the community.
Thanks to the leadership of Konocti Youth Soccer League President, Wayne Yahnke, a concession stand is nearing completion. This project is being funded by the Konocti Youth Soccer League, Westshore Little League and the Westside Community Park Committee. Many local merchants and volunteers have contributed to make this possible. They will be listed in our next post with the a picture of the completed building.
The sign went up today identifying the site of the Horse Park adjacent to Highway 175. A big, “THANK YOU!” to WCPC board member, Jaxan Christensen, and her husband, Walt, for making this happen. The engineering is almost complete for the entrance off of the highway. That will be submitted to Caltrans to obtain the required encroachment permit.
The Committee received a check for $360 from the Network for Good. It was a pleasant surprise. IF YOU WERE ONE OF THE ANONYMOUS DONORS, WE GREATLY APPRECIATE IT. It will help off set the revenue lost from ticket sales for the cancelled Grillin’ on the Green.
Since we were unable to acknowledge our generous sponsors for this year’s Grillin’ on the Green do to the cancellation caused by the fire. We want to do it here. We appreciate all of them!!!
