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.
