 We held the skate board competition at Diamond
Park on Saturday. It is the second of a three part
series also being held in Redding and Anderson.
There was a great turn-out for the event. We had
more than 60 participants sign up from 5 years old to
over 30. There were a couple hundred spectators as
well. The event went very smooth and we didn't have
any problems.
 I want to thank Gerry and his crew for their help at
the event especially Michael Brunetta for staying
during the entire event (more than 7 hours) and for
providing the lights and generator. The Recreation
Supervisors from both Redding and Anderson were at
the event and were very impressed by the support the
Red Bluff Fire Department had for the recreation
 So thanks again Gerry!
 Mike and Debbie were also a great help in making
sure the event was a success during both the planning
and the event itself.

Hopefully this will become an annual event.

The final of the three part North State Skate
series will be held in Anderson on October 20th.
The meeting with the pool consultant is still

California State Parks (CPS) requested
additional information regarding the River Park
Trail Grant. They needed information regarding
the length of time the City of Red Bluff and the
Bureau of Reclamation have been working
together. I was able to find paperwork that we
have had agreements on property going back to
at least 1970. CPS will get back in contact with
us after they review this new information. We
continue to work on making progress on the
remaining grants.

I did not have any items on the TAC agenda this

Red Bluff Trails United held a meeting
September 27th. Unfortunately, I wasn’t able to
attend the entire meeting due to another
meeting in Redding. The group will continue to
work on updating the Bike plan. We also
discussed the River Park Trail vandalism. The
Public Work Director stated there is no warranty
for vandalism and the guarantee period is over
anyway. The manufacturer of the blocks is
unknown but these are standard CMU (split
faced blocks) available anywhere. We will
continue to try to find a way to remove graffiti as
it appears. The next meeting is November 14th
at 3:45 in the City Council Chambers. This will
be held prior to the Parks Commission meeting
that same day.

I have included in your packet the email request
from Paige Davison regarding a memorial bench
at River Park. This is listed as an agenda item
to discuss at the meeting.

I also recently met with the Red Bluff Community
Band about the future of the band and the city
working together. They may be present at the
meeting to discuss future plans.
The Community Center will be closed Monday,
October 8th for a Columbus Day Holiday. I will
also be out of the office Tuesday, October 9th on
