If the Hinman Island Redevelopment Project falls through this indecision on the part of the citys Parks and Recreation Advisory Board wont be to In less than 30 minutes Monday a site plan for redeveloping Hinman Island was discussed and approved by the under the guidance of Parks Director Don Simon and the citys administrative aide Court By way of months and months in 1980 were spent discussing people erosion at Hinman Island by the parks board and the Hinman Island Parks Improvements Com Everyone understood the problem It was right there before your board chairman Sharon Phair But no one could decide exactly what should be done about so not much got Monday night was a different hopefully with a much happier The site plan illustrated a retaining wall or bulkhead of metal plates faced with 2by12s of cedar or similar naturallooking treated for resistance to water and The wall would support a 10footwide jogging trail of crushed granite pebbles and contain waterside platform areas and three sets of steps leading into the Our biggest concern is people Jumping in the water doesnt hurt the river Its people climbing carving han dholds and grabbing Simon If we give people places to get in and out of the theyll use them especially since the wall will be about four to six feet higher than the water he rocks Jield in place by wire netting installed in have proven especially attractive to swimmers and tubers who want to climb out of the The wire is now much of the rock is gone and the water has carved inlets on both We would have to go 14 feet down to get to hard stuff for the river Simon told the We were told the steel should last over 100 and the wood 50 years in or out of the The site plan also showed two low walls of wood backed by dirt which would conform to the contours of the and help correct he bareearth wear and tear currently seen on the hillside bet ween the river and Hinman Island Playground equipment and picnic tables would be relocated to the newlylevel areas away from the If all this hints erosion thats But application for funds will be made to the Parks and Wildlife Department through recreational We may have erosion controls tucked away in this but they are only part of support facilities for the hike and bike Simon I guess thats said If you have a hike and bike trail along the you have to have a wall to support Everyone Money might pose a problem because local funding is except for the the city already has budgeted for bet terment of lands in city But the city apparently has an almost certain chance of getting matching funds from the Wildlife Thats why the parks boards recommendation to City Council included a request that local funding be as close to half of the total cost of the project as At todays were looking at around to finish the whole Simon told the recalling that the parks July 1 budget allocated for walk and for a sprinkler See Page 14
