Belvedere parks panel identifies priority projects for lane repair and vegetation

Belvedere should continue to prioritize lane repairs over the next year alongside vegetation and tree management to reduce fire risk and preserve public views.


Parks, Lanes, and Open Spaces Committee Chair Jena Watson made the recommendation during the group’s annual report to the City Council Feb. 12. The document identifies priority projects that include upgrades to Park Lane and Centennial Park, among other lane repairs, and ongoing vegetation management. Watson noted the report is designed around allocations specified in the city’s fiscal 2024 budget, which includes a total of $197,708 toward lane repairs and $216,497 toward parks and open space maintenance.


Watson pointed out that this year’s report was shorter than last year’s.


“One of the things that you will note in our report is that a number of the priorities that we had last year, specifically the repairs of lanes, have fallen off of our priorities list because they’ve actually been repaired,” Watson said. Some of those repairs had been on the list since 2015.
