Save Northam Park Northam Park was being reconfigured to make way for the continuation of this promenade into Northam Park over existing youth football & baseball fields. The promenade would have replaced one to two youth football fields and one to two baseball diamonds, depending upon its length. It's our hope that the promenade will no longer be extended. On a beautiful Sunday afternoon, no one could be spotted on the promenade, but there were lots of people enjoying the football fields. Home Our Message Q @ A How Can I Help? News & Documents Letters to the Editor Contact Us ???Click HERE for a list of Seven Real Improvements for Northam Park. ?????? REASONS FOR RECALL Taxpayers Were Deceived by Issue 23 Campaign Mailers UA taxpayers were misled by Issue 23 campaign flyers sent to their homes by the City of Upper Arlington which read, "If approved, by law 100% of the revenues will be used to fix our roads, curbs, water and sewer lines."? A City of UA flyer notifying residents of Issue 23 informational meetings also repeated this language. Despite this pledge on August 24, 2014, City Council voted to spend $14-20 million of these revenues to reconfigure Northam Park in order to add new amenities. Council claims their campaign was not misleading, but even a citizen group, UA's Future, which campaigned for Issue 23, was deceived by how Issue 23 revenues would be used. UA's Future produced flyers which were mailed to residents homes that also stated, "100% of the revenues generated will be dedicated to improving UA's roads, curbs, bridges and underground water and sewer lines." If the full Northam Park plan is implemented, Council will spend 4-6 YEAR’S WORTH of Issue 23 revenues - $14 to 20 million - on ONE park. (Note: UA has 20 other parks.) Why did Issue 23 campaign flyers not mention the Northam Park plan? ?To view campaign flyers sent to residents homes in the fall of 2014 by the City of UA, Click HERE, HERE and HERE To view the City of UA flyer advertising Issue 23 informational meetings, Click HERE To view flyers sent to residents homes in the fall of 2014 by UA's Future, Click HERE, HERE, HERE, HERE, HERE, and HERE UA residents should be able to rely on the word of City officials, especially in campaign mailers and flyers paid for with taxpayer dollars. Council Disregarded Citizen Input, Prior Votes and Resident Concerns Residents have asked the City to fix Tremont Pool,address drainage and take care of existing facilities before creating more. They didn’t ask to lose hundreds of trees and popular field space that will put pressure on other parks. Nor did they ask for unpopular new amenities that were part of the original plan – a concert pavilion, wedding gazebo and promenade, turning a neighborhood park into an entertainment district. In August 2015, when the plan was subject to public input, citizens questioned why Council ruled these new amenities off-limits for discussion. Residents have fought to scale this development back over the past year, but Council has stated that the full plan is still on the table pending a comprehensive parks review. Also off-limits for discussion was the proposed community center to be attached to Tremont Elementary School, even though taxpayers voted one down on three previous occasions and a citizen-led task force had rejected Northam Park as a site for a community center due to its heavy use. Senior citizens question how the senior center fits into the plan, but the City has yet to address their concerns. Council Denied Taxpayers a Vote At least 700 residents attended the one public hearing on the plan, and by Council’s own count, 70% of speakers were against it. Council ignored resident pleas for a city-wide vote despite the far-reaching effects of the plan. (See fiscal information below.) Ignoring this overwhelming opposition, Council voted to proceed just one week later. In August 2015, Save Northam Park researched every avenue to bring the plan to a citizen initiated vote, but the timing of Council’s actions ensured that any such option would not be available until November 2016 — long after the park would have been demolished, $14 million or more spent and over 150 trees cut down. Recall was the only option left to citizens. Council’s Plan is Fiscally Irresponsible & Harmful to UA’s Parks System Council claims to have scaled back the Northam Park plan, but has indicated in Council meetings and in communications with the public that the full plan is still on the table pending a comprehensive parks review. The City is in the process of hiring yet another consultant to perform the comprehensive parks review. If the Northam Park plan is fully implemented, cost estimates begin at $14 million but range as high as $20 million — without structures. If fully implemented, the Northam Park plan will consume 75 to 100 percent of the City’s 10-year parks budget –– what about UA's 20 other parks? If fully implemented, the next four to six years of Issue 23 tax revenues will go to Northam Park, yet Northam’s reconfiguration was not mentioned in Issue 23 campaign mailers. ?.?? Recall Update ???On June 17, Save Northam Park filed over 3,100 petition signatures with the Franklin County Board of Elections for the recall of Debbie Johnson, Kip Greenhill, David Decapua and John Adams. Please find our press release announcing the filing. Click HERE. PHASE II UPDATE - May 2016 Council has gone back on yet another promise. We were told that the Northam Park plan would be scaled back and that the pool and the playground would return to their original locations. The designers have come back with a plan that adds a half million dollar entry drop-off zone and centennial history walk and plaza. The addition will cause the loss of many trees and overtakes the playground. The playground is being moved by the library, taking over a quiet tree grove where adults like to read and relax. The existing placement of the playground by the pool and school is more functional to families who play with younger children there while they wait for their older children to get out of school and swim lessons. We question how the community input process can even be considered valid since residents were not given an option to comment on the drop-off/plaza and the new placement of the playground. As for the pool, residents are not getting the stand alone baby pool they asked for and the diving well and lap lanes share space in the new design making it impossible for both activities to occur at once. The pool will have less swim space for ages 5-100 as the attached baby pool is unusable for most swimmers. Since it is difficult to find a picture of the new design on the city's website, we have provided a link to it HERE. PHASE II UPDATE: As residents around the city await the repair of their streets, curbs, water and sewer lines, we hear that the city proposes to install a splash pad at Northam Park as part of Phase II. The cost to install the facility is estimated to be $558,000, but we're not certain if this includes the cost of building a structure to house the mechanicals, so actual installation costs could be much greater. A little research on the operating costs of splash pads proves that they're nothing to sneeze at. Prince Edward County, Ontario provided their Council with an itemized operating budget for their proposed splash pad. The Council was surprised to find yearly costs ranging from approximately $59,887 - $72,645 in Canadian Dollars (USD 45,000 - USD 54,000). The 20-year budget was over CAD 1,000,000 (USD 745,000). Click HERE for story. While requirements in Canada may vary slightly to those in the US due to regulatory differences, a review of the itemized budget shows that mosts operating costs do apply, namely an attendant, maintenance staff, utilities, chemicals and liability insurance. UA Council needs to request an itemized operating budget for their proposed splash pad. Taxpayers were promised in Issue 23 campaign literature: "If approved by law, 100% of the revenues will be used to fix our roads, curbs, water and sewer lines. None of these funds can be used for the City administration or new programs." The splash pad is a new program - and some may say - it's like having another swimming pool, a 5th swimming pool!!! ISSUE #23 UPDATE: Aside from work on Tremont Road, only $2.5 million will be spent on street improvements in 2016. At least $1.8 million of the $7 million budgeted for Northam Park is to be spent on new park amenities -- an $800,000 playground and a $1,000,000 entrance situated near the promenade. As is evident from our photo log, there is much more than $2.5 million of street improvements urgently needed in U.A. And the examples we have here are just what residents can see above ground. UA's aging water and sewer lines need repair too. That's why voters put their trust in city officials and approved Issue #23. We encourage residents to send us pictures of failing infrastructure in their neighborhoods. Pictures can be emailed to SaveNorthamPark@gmail.com. Please note the street name in your email. ??????CITY COUNCIL UPDATE (1/25/15): Save Northam Park has worked to rein in the proposed expenditure of Issue 23 funds for non-essential changes to Northam Park and to preserve the park's natural beauty and neighborhood character. While we are encouraged by Council's decision to replace Tremont Pool in its original location, we are guarded in our optimism. Our concerns are based on the following facts: The revised Phase II plan is being sold to the public as a smaller version of the original, but it comes with the same price tag - $7 million. Councilman Adams confirmed at the January 25th council meeting that the remainder of the Northam Park plan - moving tennis courts and reconfiguring fields - is still on the table, pending a comprehensive parks review. In other words, taxpayers may dump $14-20 million into Northam Park yet. As such, Save Northam Park continues to collect recall signatures until we achieve a sufficient number to cover any signatures which happen to be disqualified during the certification process. The recall effort is about the responsible use of taxpayer dollars and listening to broad community input. We will continue with the recall until we are satisfied that these crucial goals have been achieved. RECALL SIGNATURE COLLECTION UPDATE (1/11/15): Save Northam Park has collected the number of signatures needed to place a recall on the ballot for City Council Members David DeCapua, Debbie Johnson, John Adams and Kip Greenhill. We continue to collect signatures in the event some signatures are invalidated by the Franklin County Board of Elections during the certification period. If you would like to sign the recall petitions, please email us at SaveNorthamPark@gmail.com. For a complete update please see our press release HERE. ?ELECTION UPDATE (11/4/15): UA voters sent an important message to Council when they voted Council President Don Leach out of office on election day and gave incumbent Mike Schadek, the one Council member to vote against moving forward on the Northam Park plan, the greatest number of votes by a significant margin. Despite these telling results, Council still has not ordered City Manager Ted Staton to halt the $14-20 million Northam Park plan, as evidenced in This Week UA, (See "Council Update" above.) ?"“We are moving forward with what we consider to be Phase II of this redevelopment project.” (Ted Staton, UA City Manager, This Week UA, Nov. 19, 2015) Phase II entails the construction of a promenade and wedding gazebo/ pavilion (now called shelter house) over existing football and baseball fields. This development sparks the pointless destruction of well over 100 trees and the costly relocation of literally every field and facility in Northam Park to reclaim lost field space. No slowing down or scaling back of the plan can be accomplished, until Phase II is halted.? Save Northam Park continues to seek the recall of the remaining four council members. We urge you to sign the recall petitions to give UA residents an up or down vote on the Northam plan and Council members' conduct in office. Contact us at SaveNorthamPark@gmail.com to sign the petitions. Copyright ? Save Northam Park View on Mobile
