There will be a public workshop for the planning & Design of the F- 50 Park (near Fiddyment Elementary School) on Tuesday September 30th at 7 pm -- at the Fiddyment Farm Elementary School - Multi-purpose Room.
"The City takes pride in being able to work closely with the neighborhoods that will use the parks. The start of the design process begins with a public workshop to introduce the proposed park design and obtain input from residents. After the plan is revised, a second workshop is held to present the master plan for review. Final revisions are made based on the input gathered at the workshop. The final master plan is then published and written comments to the final master plan are accepted during the public comment period."

---- Summary of Meeting ---
On September 30th there was a workshop for the planned park F-50 (near Fiddyment Farm Elementary School). Tara Gee (Park Planning & Development Superintendent) explained how the park design, approval, and construction works.
Existing parks were shown that are within a one-mile radius and what some of those parks had for amenities.
Brainstorming from the audience helped make a "wish list" from the neighborhood. Then each resident got a chance to vote for the top three they thought were most important to include in the new park.
The voting produced the following top choices:
- Tennis courts
- Children's Play Area
- Adult Fitness Equipment
- Gathering area/Picnic Area
Parks & Rec will do some research on cost and space considerations; after that they will schedule another meeting.
Average time to design and build a park is about 18 months.
