Explanation

Background: This legislation will authorize the Director of Recreation and Parks, with the approval of the Director of Finance and Management and the Director of the Department of Public Utilities to enter into lease agreements with the Adaptive Sports Connection (Hereinafter "ASC") in conjunction with their adaptive sports activities from O’Shaughnessy Reservoir. ASC was formerly known as The Adaptive Adventure Sports Coalition (TAASC). This new lease will replace a recently expired agreement for the same use under updated terms. Terms of the lease shall be for a period of ten (10) years with one optional ten (10) year extension option. ASC utilizes the house on the property as a central office, stages their programming on the site, and stores numerous watercraft on the site. ASC offers publicly accessible adaptive sports opportunities to our community. Rental fee terms of the lease match all existing reservoir leases and include charges of $100 per watercraft stored on the property. ASC maintains an ongoing partnership with the Therapeutic Recreation Section of Columbus Recreation and Parks (CRPD). A mutually agreed upon rental offset is included in the lease that can reduce rent each year in exchange for free programming provided to CRPD and our program participants. These services include adaptive skiing lessons, kayaking events, and cycling events.
