Brief description of the project: What is your proposed project? Please describe it.

TCCSA has utilized the Conex at the park for about five years for storage and lately housing the tractor and implements. Don Shaw has generously allowed us to use his container during this time, but in June 2014 he will be moving it from the park to his place. This leaves the park without a safe place to store the tractor. This is a proposal for $5500 for purchasing a suitable 10’ x 40’ Conex container, moving it to the park, and preparing a location for setting it up in a new location.

Who, why and approximately how many people in our community will benefit from completion of this project?

Secure storage would help to ensure the safety of the community’s investment in a John Deer 1026R tractor and implements for the maintenance of Trapper Creek Park and Cemetery

Ÿ  Is there evidence of public support for this project? If so, please attach.

The community has a vested interest in storing the tractor in a secure place.

Project Budget: Please provide project budget figures. Provide supporting documentation.

A general call around indicates that 10’ x 20’ Conex containers now cost around $4500 with transportation to the park an additional $500. We estimate $500 for preparing a location for setting up the container, which will involve dirt work and additional gravel. The total budget for a suitable container would be $5500.

Will this project provide economic benefits to the community? If so, please explain.

An investment in storage for the tractor would prevent theft and ensure that the tractor is out of the weather.

Please provide an estimated time schedule for completion of the project if funding is received.

Should this proposal get community approval, a Conex container would be purchased in June 2014.

Brief description of the project: What is your proposed project? Please describe it.

Trapper Creek Park and Cemetery has been operating for years with only the minimal amount of tools. Volunteers have been using their own tools for maintenance and frequently Mike Carpenter of Wal*Mikes has generously loaned volunteers many tools to use, as well. This proposal asks for $2000 for a complete set of tools that can be used for the community gardens, cemetery, trails, repairs, building and snow removal. These tools would be stored in the shed.

Who, why and approximately how many people in our community will benefit from completion of this project?

Everyone in the community would benefit by a smoothly running park. Tools are necessary to carry out all sorts of projects at the park and cemetery.

Is there evidence of public support for this project? If so, please attach.

The community has always expressed a need for proper maintenance and operations of the park through volunteerism. The proper tools would sure go a long way in ensuring that services will be provided to the community on a continuing basis.

Project Budget: Please provide project budget figures. Provide supporting documentation.

The tally of the average price for each of the following tools totals $2000. The tools needed for a smooth operation of the park include: grease gun, filter wrench, combo set of wrenches, ratchet socket set, framing hammer, hand saw, pruning saw, crosscut saw, 100’ drain snake, step ladder, extension ladder, spud bar, grain shovel, hand tiller, pipe wrenches, set of crescent wrenches, splitting mall, axe, bench vice, garden spades, garden rake, leaf rake, hoses, hose carrier, utility wagon, peg boards, copper tubing implements, and a tool box.

Will this project provide economic benefits to the community? If so, please explain.

The proper tools would increase the proficiency of any project.

Please provide an estimated time schedule for completion of the project if funding is received.

Should this proposal be approved by your vote, all would be purchased in June 2014.

Name of Project: Finish Park Outbuildings: Shed, Shelter, and Freebox

Brief description of the project: What is your proposed project? Please describe it.

Trapper Creek Park and Cemetery has three outbuildings (Shed, Shelter, and Freebox) that need completed. All three buildings require a protective coating that will help to preserve the wood from the elements. A work bench, tool storage and some interior finish work is necessary in the shed. The shelter is missing flashing on the side facia boards, which we have on hand. For the freebox the interior needs sheeting on the ceiling and gable ends, a heating source, a metal roof, more gravel, 100 gallon fuel tank and fuel, and the porch needs enlarging. The cost estimate for this project is $6658.50.

Who, why and approximately how many people in our community will benefit from completion of this project?

This project will protect the structures from the weather, provide ease of use, and help to make the freebox warm in the winter, so that it can be open more often. All of these will increase the life of the buildings, which will benefit all the park use

Is there evidence of public support for this project? If so, please attach.

Yes, all three buildings were supported by vote of the community. Finishing the buildings is in everyone’s best interest.

Project Budget: Please provide project budget figures. Provide supporting documentation.

This project proposal includes $2583.50 for materials required to build a work bench and finish the interior of the shed, all the material to complete the interior of the freebox with the addition of a metal roof and preservative for all three buildings; $150 for a load of gravel and typar, $1700 for a Toyotomi OM 23 heating unit for the freebox, $400 for a 100 gallon obround oil tank, $200 for an oil tank stand, $425 for diesel, and $1200 for 80 hours of labor. The total for this project is $6658.50.

Will this project provide economic benefits to the community? If so, please explain.

This project should go a long way in requiring less maintenance in the future, more utility for the public and volunteers, and will increase the aesthetic appeal of all three buildings.

Please provide an estimated time schedule for completion of the project if funding is received.

Should this project benefit by your vote, the project will be completed in the summer of 2014.
