Meeting Date: 08/17/2017  

SUBJECT MATTER:
Receive, consider and act upon a reciprocal parking license agreement with First Church of Christ, Scientist (C-2017-0423); 
FISCAL IMPACT:
No cost is anticipated as a result of this agreement.
BACKGROUND:
The Woodlands Township has received a request form the First Church of Christ, Scientist for permission to use a portion of Tamarac Park for overflow parking on Sunday mornings (Attachment A).  The request is due to the growth of the congregation and space on the church property is limited and restricts the ability to add additional parking spaces.  Township staff monitored the Tamarac Park use over the course of five weeks in June to identify if this accommodation could be made without impacting park use. It was determined that the majority of park use on Sunday mornings was limited to a handful of vehicles.

The Township has entered into several mutually beneficial parking licenses or agreements with schools, churches and other non-profits including: Trinity Episcopal Church (Creekwood Park), First Baptist (Sawmill Park), Faith Bible (Bear Branch Sportsfields),  Interfaith (Ridgewood and Falconwing Parks), among others.  Entering into these agreements is a practice that is consistent with the  master plan of the community relating to joint use parking.
 
A Parking License Agreement has been prepared (Attachment B). The Parking License Agreement would provide the Church use of the Park parking lot on Sundays while the Township would retain the ability to use the Church’s parking lot on days other than Sundays for Township park programs or events  that may require additional parking.
RECOMMENDATION:
Approve the Parking License Agreement with First Church of Christ, Scientist and authorize the President/General Manager to execute the agreement upon approval to final form by the Township Attorney.
