An extensive and creative public engagement process for the Downtown Park Master Plan involved more than 2,000 kids and adults. We also invited people to “Claim a Stake” in Downtown Park. More than 1,000 suggestions were written onto tags and staked within the park in a colorful art installation.
Downtown Park is in the second of three phases needed to create the park.
Phase 1: The Master Plan Phase explored options for the park with the community and developed a preferred concept, based on the public preference.
Phase 2: The project is currently in the Design Phase, in which detailed design plans and construction documents are prepared, based on the selected Master Plan Concept.
Phase 3: The Construction Phase is scheduled to begin in early spring 2017 and be complete in 2018. Funding has been identified so that the entire project can be built in a single construction effort.
