How can neighborhood residents be involved?
During the public input phase of the project (January-May 2015), residents of the surrounding neighborhoods identified their priorities and shared suggestions and ideas. Check out the input results. The city planners are trying to use this as a checklist as they draft their designs, though due to budget, not every idea will be able to make it into this round of improvements.
Initial designs will be shared with residents at a public meeting tentatively set for October, 2015.
Right now, residents are helping by providing design recommendations, raising funds, encouraging more use of the park, and more. Find out how you can help!
