Document Description
The facility, known as the Hesperia Civic Green, will provide for a variety of passive and active recreational activities. This area will be used for recreational activities of all types, from non-organized sports to leisure activities such as picnicking or reading. On the perimeter of this area, shuffle board, bocce ball, chess, and reading tables will be established. The southeast portion of the park will contain a large rose garden with a memorial, overhead trellises, outdoor seating and classroom areas, and art displays. On the west side of Eighth Avenue, next to the amphitheatre, a Christmas tree will be planted, which will be decorated annually. A portion of Eighth Avenue will traverse the park. The street will be closed to vehicular traffic between Juniper Street and Smoketree Street and will only be opened to allow for farmer's markerts, car shows, and other outdoor events. The southern portion of the site will contain 800-seat outdoor amphitheatre. The 2,200 square foot amphitheatre would include a stage, dressing areas, restrooms, equipment, and a movie screen backdrop. The amphitheatre will host live entertainment including musical and theatrical performances. Outdoor showings of movies would also occur in the evenings. A pedestrian walkway will connect the amphitheatre with the park area. Variance V-2007-05 would allow up to 100 amplified music events per calendar year to exceed limitations within the noise ordinance. An event which begins during the day and ends in the evening shall be considered a single event. In addition, all events with amplified music will be advertised in local media outlets. The number of non-amplified music events or any of the other events would not be limited.
