The Planning Process and Parks Design Team
The planning process is being led by a community and stakeholder group called the Parks Design Team (PDT). The Parks Design Team is made up of community members, park users, and other stakeholders who will help identify needs, explore uses, and review concepts and design proposals throughout the planning process. The Parks design team will meet about every month and will also attend additional activities and public engagement opportunities scheduled throughout the planning process. The Parks Design Team meetings and activities are open to the public.
