Money in lieu of park land dedication is in the amount of $476.00 and may be used for the new westside community center which is being built. Jerry Shectner, Westside Housing stated that there are some concerns regarding certain conditions within the ordinance: Condition #2 requires that the developer submit a storm drainage study for approval at a cost of $500.00; condition #3 requires that the developer submit plans for grading and siltation and erosion control to the City Engineer's Office at a cost of $300.00 and condition #5 requires the developer to contribute $476.00 in park land fees.
