Synthetic turf is off the table but the SanCarlos City Council sent staff back to thedrawing board for other aspects of itsCrestview Park renovation — in particular,ways to potentially save a memorial redwoodtree and add a safe place for stargazing.The City Council Monday night optedagainst endorsing the recommended designknown as Concept C and instead asked for anew Concept E to consider at the Aug. 26meeting. The new concept would includeenough hardscape surfaces for theastronomers who hold stargazing parties andworry about stumbling in the dark.Staff will also return with cost estimates forreplacing the existing grass field with newnatural turf to see if it fits within the $1.7 mil-lion project budget and options for a desiredroundabout at the park entryway.As proposed, the roundabout will requireremoving a redwood tree at which a memorialplaque currently sits. Councilmembers RonCollins and Karen Clapper said they will eachspeak with members of the Nannarone familyabout moving the plaque elsewhere and plant-ing a new tree. The plaque honors GregNannarone who died of leukemia at age 16 in1984.The reduced number of trees in the park planwas an overall concern for the City Councilalthough much of the focus was on the specif-ic redwood. Although the council, minusMayor Bob Grassilli who had to recuse him-self because he lives too close to the park,prefers to save the tree, Councilman RonCollins conceded it isn’t a deal breaker.“If we can’t keep it, I can live with that,” hesaid, adding separately about a replacementthat “the nice thing about redwoods is theygrow quickly.”The council could choose to keep the treebut only if the existing entry and parkingconfiguration remains, said City Manager Jeff Maltbie.Clapper called the sacrifice of one tree along-term commitment to a turnabout whichwill provide more safety to those droppingoff and picking up at the park.Astronomer and longtime resident Ken Lumalso asked that the turnabout be made safe forhim and other skywatchers, noting that curbsand stones can represent tripping hazards.Some of the lengthy public comment peri-od included residents with opinions about theoriginal call to use synthetic turf althoughstaff changed its mind before the meeting andnow recommends natural grass. At least onespeaker worried that reopening the publicdebate over the Crestview design opens thatpossibility back up but others said city staff needs more time before deciding on a finalblueprint because none of the original con-cepts Athrough D were well thought-out.“We all need to step back, take a deep breathand revisit our concerns,” Susan Blackmansaid.Crestview is a 1.1-acre park located onCrestview Drive north of Brittan Avenue.Many residents — often those opposed tosynthetic turf — pointed to its charm ordescribe it as a neighborhood park rather thanone that draws from throughout the city likethe larger Highlands Park.The Planning Commission favored 3-1Concept C which included new playgroundequipment, nine parking spaces rather thanthe existing 15 and the addition of five trees.However, the commission split evenly 2-2over the original synthetic turf recommenda-tion.

The county’s former chief probation officeris ready to begin trial on two felony chargesof possessing child pornography lodged afterfederal investigators reportedly found morethan 400 graphic images of children on hishome computer in December.Stuart James Forrest, 61, is expected tomount a defense that admits possessing somepornographic images but arguing they wererelated to his job heading the San MateoCounty Probation Department. On Tuesday,Forrest appeared in court for a conference onhis readiness for trial andto begin discussing trialmotions. The five-day jurytrial is set for Monday,July 15.Forrest has pleaded notguilty to two felonycounts stemming from hisalleged possession onDec. 20 and Dec. 21.Although Forrest report-edly possessed more than400 illegal images on a USB drive and laptopat his home, the law typically allows a persononly to be charged for each incident of pos-session rather than the total number of pho-tographs or videos.The two days linked to the charges by thestate Attorney General’s Office are when feder-al agents searched Forrest’s office at the YouthServices Center in San Mateo and the SanMateo County Superior Court placed him onadministrative leave. Shortly after, Forrestreportedly tried killing himself on the stepsof a San Mateo church when confronted bysheriff’s deputies and, 10 days later, retiredfrom the county. Forrest is free from custodyon a $10,000 bail bond.
