An analysis of the data showed a juvenile problem during the early months of summer and fall, when school was about to get out for the summer or start for the year. Incidents occurred mostly between the hours of 1:00 pm and 5:00 pm. Most of the incidents also occurred at or near the pavilion located in the middle of the park.Slide21
What are the residents around the park saying?Slide22
Contributors to problems in the park; - the park is surrounded by a high concentration of low income, residential complexes. - The park is a shortcut for the surrounding residences to downtown - It is a central park surrounded by the canyon, skate park, bowlby field, etc. - juveniles “hang out” and commit crimes in the park - People see juveniles using drugs in the parkSlide23
the strategies we will employ
Signage, cameras, extra patrols, lighting (solar/green), encourage public to call. CPTED. Have the Redmond School District enforce it’s policy on kids in park during school hours. Establish a new City ordinance excluding kids from parks during school hours. Punch SW 15
St all the way through, this will increase traffic, making the park better lit at night and more visible.Slide24
