Recreation Area Proposal - UPDATE
Posted on Mar 1st, 2014

The basketball court has been the single area that is giving the city some concern.  The rationale is that it contains a large impermiable surface and thus contributes to runoff.  For the time being, the basketball court plan has been put aside.  The plan for a fenced dog park is now being taken to the next phase and will be planned in detail with the hope of taking action on it this year.  Watch for more news on this and the other rec area items in this spot.
See the location in the neighborhood here and the proposed facilities here.  Please use the comment section to voice your thoughts and ask your questions.  I've also opened a topic in the Resident's Blog that allows for longer posts to aid our discussion.

The new recreation area proposal looks really nice. I think it would be fun to have a full court for basketball and be able to organize a community kid's game.

Is there a preliminary estimate on cost to develop and maintain?

We have estimates for each of the elements and plan to execute them in phases. Details are still in the planning stages. Your input is requested.

A basketball court would be great

I think this would not only be a great outlet for the kids (and adults) but also would be a huge selling feature to prospective buyers! I like the proposal.

This looks fantastic. Lets make sure some basketball guys get to have input on the size of the half court and the type of backboard. Also the bocce pits can be fun and we have enough space it make it a sporting size. Could we donate a lacrosse goal and some back netting so kids can go up there and shoot across from the Dog park. Put the back netting along the tree line.

I think a tot lot would be great for the new rec area. Parents with multiple children at different ages can utilize the entire area.

Before we put any kind of recreation area behind or near anyones home, we really need to get feedback from the homeowners that live near the area. Everyone should consider how it will affect those homeowner's property values, their peaceful life and the way they have enjoyed living with a natural environment behind their homes.

I think it would be a terrible disruption for those homeowners.

I think that it would be great for the entire neighborhood to be able to enjoy this space. Not to mention, adding more Kingsport amenities would increase our property values.

Thank you to the courteous neighbor who suggested discussing with owners w/property facing the area. Correct, very disruptive is an understatement. As Chris Mehrer also wrote, the damage to the environment is unwise, deer herd etc. The wooded areas are environmentally protected. Five homeowners have skin in this game, effects no others property, making it easy to be a 'great idea'

Here is some of content of a letter I forwarded to Annapolis DNEP today. 'Chair Jennings: I respectfully request that discussions between the City of Annapolis DNEP and HOA related to the concept of implementing a recreation park in a conservancy area-meadow located behind Pearson Point Place be discontinued. . . '

Ask Phil and Mai at 720 how home values have been affected their sale as prospective owners get scuttlebutt on this rec area.
