Failing Playgrounds Meeting #6 Summary

September 16, 2014 – Meeting 6 of the Failing Playgrounds Task Force was the most exciting to date as RPD staff presented a proposed list of playgrounds for renovation. Before presenting the list, staff reviewed the work accomplished by the Task Force in order to reflect on and summarize the process so far. The proposed final list prioritized the presence of CCA-treated wood first, followed by low household median income, high youth density, and then low Parks Alliance Report Card Score. The Task Force and the public discussed the list and methodology and possible alternatives. After substantial input from Task Force members, the SFPA and the public, the Task Force unanimously approved the list without any amendments! Next, RPD staff will draft a final report summarizing the Task Force’s work. The list will then be discussed at a Recreation and Park Commission hearing.
