SPECIAL CONGREGATIONAL MEETING MAY 14th
For the specific purpose of voting on Trinity council’s recommendation to grant an easement to 7100 pines plaza INC and Sky sunshine daycare for the establishment of a playground
Trinity was approached last summer with a request for an easement for a daycare moving in next door to build a required playground on our property so that they could be licensed and operate.
Council spent the last 9 months negotiating with the daycare and the shopping center to ensure the final agreement was satisfactory to all parties. Throughout this process, Tom Gearhart, Al and Shirley Gearhart’s son and a lawyer, guided us and reviewed every draft. We have also been in touch with both our insurance company and our current loan holder to ensure that the agreement is satisfactory in their eyes.
The daycare will have its own insurance and hold liability. They will be inspected, reviewed, and licensed by the City of Pembroke Pines. They are responsible for maintaining the area.
The area in question is the Trinity property south of the current fenced in area behind Charter Hall extending approximately 85 feet to the south and no further west then the current fence that surrounds the large ficus behind Charter. For those who remember the Prayer Labyrinth, it covers essentially the same area.
We are granting an easement for the expressed purpose of allowing the construction of the playground. Trinity will continue to own the land and is contractually permitted to use the playground when it is not in use by the pre-school. The easement is on a four-ear renewable contract with an escape clause should Trinity decide to sell that portion of the land sometime in the future.
For the easement Trinity will be permitted to use the playground (designed for pre-school age children for a Monday through Friday pre school) and received $250 a month compensation that increases $50 a month each year of the agreement is in force. The playground will be fenced in for security. There is no cost to Trinity for allowing the easement or maintaining it.
If you have any questions prior to the meeting please direct them to either Council President Eileen Soler or Pastor Keith
