Community Meetings a success!

Thank you to all those who came out to our community meetings on May 2 and May 3, 2010 to provide feedback on our alternatives and actions for Willamette Park. At the meetings, we had people rate their priorities for improvement actions in Willamette Park that were part of the three following improvement areas:

1. Improve recreation experiences

  • Park facilities
  • Trail system
  • Boating facilities
  • Sports fields
  • Interactive education

2. Protect and enhance natural resources

  • Stormwater management
  • Restoration and enhancement
  • Pedestrian access to Willamette River

3. Improve park management and operations

  • Signage
  • Management of geese

We appreciate all the input we received and the time people spent discussing the topics with us. It was extremely informative and a very important part of our process. View pictures from the event on our photo website here!

Our next steps will include working with PP&R planners to analyze the alternatives and actions based on standardized PP&R criteria and public input. Once we have done this, we will develop our recommendations for guiding Willamette Park as a hybrid park into the future.

Our final report will be available to download right here on our website in early June.

Thank you again to all who have helped us in this process thus far! We look forward to sharing our recommendations with you all shortly!
