  18. Project Issues: Drainage & Erosion Drainage and runoff impacts the road edges and causes erosion and water quality problems Impacted Road Edge The concentrated use in one area causes soil compaction, erosion, dusty and muddy conditions, and tree decline Concentrated Use Numerous swales and gullies impact the slopes and soils causing erosion Impacted Road Edge

  19. Project Issues: Parking & Circulation Pedestrian / vehicular conflicts are frequent for users crossing the road in these areas Lay -By Parking Parking Lot Parking and traffic conflicts are a big problem on nice days when use is high Lay -By Parking

  20. Project Issues: Existing Features Hogan Fountain location is good, but is surrounded by unpleasant asphalt The proximity of the existing basketball court to the other facilities is problematic Hogan Fountain Shelter The existing shelter is deteriorating and is not compatible with the historic character of the park Basketball The softball field as well as the area to the south is not heavily used Restroom Softball The Restroom is not compatible with the historic character of the park and is uninviting The overhead power line is unsightly and causes tree damage
