Subject:    Consider Naming the Proposed Park in the Ginger Creek Subdivision
Prepared for: Scott Johnson Prepared by: Scott Johnson, Parks and Recreation
Department: Parks and Recreation  

Consider a resolution approving the naming of the proposed park in the Ginger Creek Estates Subdivision and its park facilities. 
This proposed resolution approves the name the future park, trail and playground in the Ginger Creek Estates Subdivision. 

The City of Baytown purchased two (2) lots in the Ginger Creek Estates Subdivision in 2020.  The Parks and Recreation Department is currently installing playground equipment and other park amenities at the park site.  The current construction project is expected to be completed by the end of August.  An additional 1/2 basketball court is planned for construction later in 2021.
The Parks and Recreation Department received two (2) separate request to name the park after two Baytown residents that have passed away.  The Board heard from friends and relatives of the two individuals starting at the June 2020 board meeting.  The item was discussed each month with no decision.  Both names were discussed at the Neighbors Night Out park meeting that was held at the park site in October 2020.  Several residents expressed concerns about the proposed names and that they favored naming the park after the neighborhood.
At the December 2, 2020, Parks and Recreation Advisory Board meeting, the Board voted to recommend to council to name the future park, “The Ginger Creek Estates Park.”  Residents requested "Estates" being added to the park name.
At the January 6, 2021, Parks and Recreation Advisor Board meeting, the Board voted to recommend to council to name the future trail, “The Juan Cerino Trail” and the playground “The Rayehasen Wilson Playground”.
