The land previously owned by the Town is completely surrounded by Vasona Lake <br />County Park and was considered unusable for active recreational purposes. The $6 million <br />proceeds from the land sale plus all accrued interest were placed in a reserve fund specifically for <br />community and youth sports facilities. In 2009, just over $3 million from this fund was used to <br />purchase a site located at 930 University Avenue. This site, the former home of a Verizon <br />Corporation Yard, located immediately north of Vasona Lake County Park and adjacent to Los <br />Gatos Creek, has been identified by the Town as the site of a future youth and community sports <br />and recreation facility. In June of 2010, Council adopted a set of guiding principles to be used in <br />the Master Planning for this new facility. The adopted FY 2010/11 - 201415 Capital <br />Improvement Program budget designates funding in the amount of $300,000 for this project, <br />which includes engineering and design services. <br />PREPARED BY : TODD CAPURSO <br />Director of Parks and Public Works <br />Reviewed by: �)l Assistant Town Manager Town Attorney <br />Clerk Administrator , Finance Community Development <br />N:\ PPW\ MANAGEMENT \COUNCIL \COUNCIL REPORTS\2010 Reports\December 6 \10- 15.Creekside SpoitsparkFINAL.docx <br />
