Chester Bowl Mini-Master Plan Meeting 9/30

Chester Park has been going through a Mini-Master Planning process. This plan outlines the types of changes that could be made in the park without going through the full future public approval process.  The final meeting is Tuesday, 9/30, at 6pm at Myers-Wilkins Elementary School (1027 N 8th Ave E).  You can come in person or make comments online.  Please participate in this process so that your voice is heard!  Full details on the plan and the process are at http://www.duluthmn.gov/parks/.
A letter from Parks and Recreation Manager Kathleen Bergen is below:
September 22, 2014

Dear Neighbor of Chester Park,

You are invited to attend a public meeting to review and comment on the final draft of the Mini-Master Plan for Chester Park before it goes to the Parks Commission and City Council.  The proposed Plan, developed by SAS + Associates in coordination with City staff, the Chester Bowl Improvement Club, stakeholder group representatives, and the public, will be presented during the meeting, followed by a question and answer session.

This meeting will be on Tuesday, September 30, 2014 from 6 to 7:30 pm at the Myers- Wilkins Elementary School Media Center. The address is 1027 N 8th Ave E, Duluth, MN 55805.

In addition to sending this letter to Chester Park neighbors, we are issuing our standard press release to invite the general public to attend. We want to hear your comments and feedback. The draft Plan is available for review at the Parks and Recreation website: http://www.duluthmn.gov/parks/

If you are unable to attend the public meeting or would prefer to send written comments, the comment form on our website will be available through Friday, October 3, 2014.

Other Important Dates: After revising the draft Plan based on comments shared online and at the final public meeting on September 30, our goal is to present the Chester Park Mini-Master Plan to the Parks Commission on Wednesday, October 8 at 5 pm at the Central Hillside Center (12 E 4th St). If the Plan is approved at that meeting, the final step will be to present the Plan to the City Council on October 13.

Please feel free to contact me if you have any questions.

Sincerely,

Kathleen Bergen

Manager, Parks and Recreation

Chester Bowl on MPR’s “Minnesota Sounds and Voices”

Screen Shot 2014-01-27 at 3.46.30 PM

Dan Olsen from MPR did a story on Chester Bowl that aired today. Fantastic photos by Derek Montgomery too.

Closed Saturday, Monday

The Chester Bowl Chairlift will be closed today, Saturday, Jan. 25, due to the cold & wind. It is possible the lift will run tomorrow, however, strong winds are predicted. I will send out an email Sunday morning with an update.

With the National Weather Service calling for a high around -10 on Monday, the lift will be closed then too.

Stay Warm!

Lift Closed again today, Monday Dec 30.

Due to another day of below zero temperatures, the Chester Bowl chairlift will be closed today.
With below zero highs forecast for both Tuesday & Thursday, it is likely the lift will also be closed on those days. By Friday, it looks like the temperatures will moderate enough to have the lift open again.
I am in the process of scheduling some make up ski lesson days. I will send out another announcement on that, when plans are finalized.

Thanks for supporting your park!

Thom

Lift Closed Sunday 12-29

The Chester Bowl Chairlift will be closed today, and there will be no ski lessons, due to the cold weather. There are several days of cold weather predicted, so the status of the lift will be on a day by day basis. If the winds drop tomorrow, and the sun is out, it is possible the lift will reopen on Monday.

To end on a positive note, congratulations to the dozens of new skiers that have gone from non-skiers, to skiing independently, during our first three days os ski camp!

Ski School Begins!

 Check the schedule for upcoming times!  Thanks Cadets, parents and hearty skiers!
