VI. Discussion Item
a. Cramer Hill Proposal: We are recreation students, and we a formulating a lease for cranor hill to be purchased by Western. We feel like we can develop the hill for summer and wintertime uses. It will help with retention. This would be another good positive change on campus. We have several meetings set up this week to introduce faculty to this idea. We are not asking for any money but we are asking for support, to see if anyone wants to get involved. Our budget will be $43,025 for start up costs and after revenue we think it will be about $29,000. If we can break even, by gaining students it would be great. We have a mountain bike park planned. We spoke with the flow park and the estimate is $30,000.
i. How much will you be selling tickets for?
1. $9/day for the community and students will be free and $55 for a season-pass.
ii. This is the startup cost for everything?
1. Not for maintenance or transportation
iii. So the mountain has been losing because they cannot open
iv. If you cannot put snow on crannog hill that what will we do?
1. There are a couple options, we want to see the hill as a year round thing.
v. Someone other than the city owns the land. Have you spoke with the Cranor family?
1. We want to see if the family is interested, and the city will be willing to get in with you all, but this is a talk you want to have with the city first. There is a city internship out there right now.
vi. Where would the energy be from?
1. The existing supply.
vii. We have gotten quotes for the carpet on the hill, you get an estimate, and it is expensive, but it will be a couple years down the line. The mountain bike track will be the first implementation and get the interest involving.
