Document Description
The project would develop a 40-acre community park in Diamond Springs, California. The project would offer various active and passive recreational amenities to the local community, nearby schools, and sports leagues. The western and central portion of the site would be graded for active uses and existing vegetation would be removed. The eastern portion of the site would not be developed, except for passive educational and recreational uses (e.g., pedestrian trails). The conceptual park design includes the following: ballfields (soccer, softball), basketball courts, tennis/sports courts, play area (age 2-5/5/12), recreational/indoor gym, pedestrian trails, designated parking areas, restrooms/concessions, and open turf. Lighting, native and drought-tolerant landscaping, and utilities are also planned. To maximize the centralized location and multi-use and community nature of the proposed project, the project is being designed to improve County resiliency and reduce vulnerability in the event of emergencies/natural disasters (wildfire, flooding, etc.). To support this goal, the project's vehicular access, circulation, and location and capacity of utility connections have been designed to provide infrastructure (e.g., emergency generator) sized to support emergency operations/disaster planning, including potential occupation by emergency event evacuees.
