Quorum issue delays park improvement

By MARTHA McCLAIN
Special to the PRESS

Lack of a quorum pre­vented Laguna Vista’s Parks Board recently from formal­ly considering the design and improvements for $1 million worth of various community recreational areas.

Summer vacations and other commitments report­edly prevented a majority of the seven-member advisory board from action on the proposal presented by GMS Architects of Brownsville.

However, in the absence of the quorum, members lis­tened, but could not act on a preliminary master plan for four separate parks was pre­sented with only a handful of the board present. It in­cluded initial plans for a new $800,000 facility at Roloff Park, a new $125,000 jog­ging/walking trail on a 15 acre tract of land, improve­ments to the vacant lot at Tanglewood Apartments and at Veterans Park.
