Receive, consider and act upon lease agreements with The Rowing Club of The Woodlands and Parati Competitive Rowing related to the Boathouse at Northshore Park C-2016-0485 & C-2016-0484;
The Board at their April 27, 2016 meeting approved moving forward with a 7,000 square foot facility which includes 1,000 square feet of space for Township use (public kayak, canoe or other small craft storage). Woodforest National Bank has submitted a signage/sponsorship agreement which would reduce the cost of the facility by $500,000. The remaining cost of the facility would be the responsibility of the Township based on the allocation of space (1,000 square feet) for the Township and the public areas surrounding the facility that are included in the construction costs. Funding for the Township’s portion- $131,000 ($90,142.86 cost based on a square foot allocation + $40,857.14 for the common or public area surrounding the facility) can be allocated from the Capital Reserve Fund.
Over the course of the past 30 years, rowing has been on Lake Woodlands and at Northshore Park. Since that time, the rowing community has received various approvals (WCA/Township) to locate storage units at Northshore Park. The size of the units and footprint within the park has expanded due in part to the growth of the community and the growth of rowing. During the planning process of the Northshore Park renovation the Board directed staff to work with the rowing clubs on developing a public/private concept for a rowing facility in the park, and return to the Board with the plan.
At the April 27, 2016 meeting the Board provided direction to staff to return with a Lease Agreement(s) for the clubs to utilize the rowing facility. The Township Attorney has reviewed and updated the agreements with the Board’s input. Attachments A and B are the proposed Agreements with the clubs and outlines items such as the terms, alterations, sub-letting, notice and rent.
Approve the Lease Agreements with the Rowing Club of The Woodlands and Parati Competitive Rowing Club as presented and as approved to final form by the Township Attorney and authorize the President/General Manager to execute the final lease agreements.
