MARTINEZ, Calif. – The Martinez Parks, Recreation, Marina and Cultural Commission will decide Tuesday whether to waive fees for the 11th annual Beaver Festival and for a Cub Scout graduation.
Heidi Perryman and her nonprofit organization, Worth a Dam, which became the voice of those who wanted to save the Alhambra Creek beavers when they lived in the downtown area, have moved the festival from the city park that has become nicknamed “Beaver Park” to Susana Park.
The event, which has received national attention, will take place from 11 a.m to 4 p.m. June 30, and Perryman expects about a thousand people to attend.
Kristine Peterson and Erin Ardans will ask for a fee waiver for the use of Hidden Valley Park Sycamore Picnic Area June 2 for the Cub Scouts Pack 420 graduation. About 79 to 80 are expected to attend.
The Commission will discuss setting a date and place for a retreat to examine its history and changing responsibilities. The retreat was expected to take place April 28 in the Martinez Senior Center, but some Commissioners realized they have conflicts with that date.
Also on Tuesday’s agenda is an annual report from the Martinez Bocce Federation.
The Park, Recreation, Marina and Cultural Commission will meet at 7 p.. Tuesday in the Council Chamber of Martinez City Hall, 525 Henrietta St.
