If approved, these principles will serve as the first step in the master <br />planning process for the development of the Los Gatos Creekside Sports Park, and will provide a <br />framework for the community and other stakeholders to provide ideas and comments. <br />Additionally, it should also be noted that the name "Los Gatos Creekside Sports Puk" was <br />nominated by the sub-committee as a working title for the site. Additional naming suggestions <br />or variations may arise during the planning process and maybe considered as well. The <br />proposed guiding principles are attached as a separate document. (Attachment 1) <br />Staff presented these draft principles to the Parks Cormnission at their June 1 sc meeting as an <br />informational item for discussion.
