Present Land Use
PLU: Both Burton and Highlands Parks used as parks and include soccer, baseball and soccer fields Z: park in the city's zoning map
Document Description
Currently one field at Burton Park (Madsen Field) and one field at Highlands Park (Highlands Field) have halogen lighting for night use, and two fields (Flanagan Field at Burton Park and Stadium Field at Highlands Park) do not have lighting. Due to the increasing demand for field space within the city, installing new lighting at Burton and Highlands Parks was identified by the Parks and Recreation Department as a way to accommodate more users by allowing for additional hours of use. Additionally, improvements to the existing lights at both parks is needed. The proposed project is intended to provide new and improved field lighting at Burton and Highlands Parks to allow for additional hours of play and to help alleviate demand for field use at other parks in the city. The proposed project will replace the existing halogen lighting at the lit fields (Madsen and Highlands Field) with LED lighting. Also part of the proposed project, at Burton Park, Flanagan Field would receive new LED Agreement with the group Save San Carlos Parks regarding use of Highlands Park. The Settlement Agreement identified traffic and parking restrictions and limitations on the use of the field for practice and games. The provisions to be modified primarily relate to the limitations on field use and parking restrictions.
