  • Recap - Virtual Community Input Meeting

    From June to August 2022, McAdams Co. has led several staff meetings and conducted a site analysis of the existing park with Parks and Recreation staff. McAdams produced an initial conceptual rendering for community feedback through these meetings and assessments. In addition, the Development Services Review team reviewed the initial conceptual plan and provided input to McAdams Co.

    On September 1, 2022, the Parks and Recreation Department (PARD) held a virtual community input meeting and presented the conceptual renderings. The meeting had limited attendance, however feedback received was positive. The community meeting was recorded and is available below or at the following link, https://youtu.be/L5H0AhrCUOk. PARD staff is scheduled to present the conceptual design to Park Board on October 3. In addition, staff is identifying additional dates to conduct in-person community meetings.

    McAdams Co. and PARD have put together a survey to capture splashpad amenities, and any other features that are desired by the community. Please go to the following link to access the survey, https://forms.office.com/r/Qmn62DD6ia.To provide feedback or questions click here.
