Hidden Valley club to seek permission for 5K color dash

MARTINEZ, Calif. – Hidden Valley Elementary Parent Faculty Club will ask the Martinez Parks, Recreation, Marina and Cultural Commission Tuesday for permission to use the Hidden Valley and Hidden Lake parks and nearby open space for a 5K Color Dash.

The Dash, a fundraiser, would take place at 8 a.m. April 28, and would last about four hours, the applicant, Lindsey Fletcher, said.

According to a report by the city’s recreation staff, the race would start and end at Hidden Valley Elementary School. Runners would go along Hidden Valley Park, Hidden Lakes Park and Open Spaces on pathways and trails, the report said.

Runners get covered in colored cornstarch during the run as they go thorugh color stations that would not be set up in the parks, the report said. About 200 participants are expected, the report said. Special event permitting would be required, but since this is a school event, no fees would be assessed.

Also on Tuesday’s agenda is a staff report on fees for the Rankin Aquatic Center and Waterfront Park.

Patty Lorick, recreation supervisor, will ask the Commission to review a report compiling suggestions from the PRMCC Fee Subcommittee for adjustments to charges at both places.

She then will ask the Commission to make recommendations to the City Council based on that report.

In addition, the Commission will review staff reports on recreation and maintenance.

The Martinez Parks, Recreation, Marina and Cultural Commission will meet at 7 p.m. Tuesday in the Council Chamber of Martinez City Hall, 525 Henrietta St.
