STEERING COMMITTEE REVIEWS SURVEY RESULTS
The public comment period on the draft plan to update Redstone Park closed on March 14. The results were reviewed by the Steering Committee at an April 14 virtual meeting. Work on a final draft will now begin. Materials for the April 14 meeting, including a summary of the public comments, are posted below.
The plan, developed by the local Steering Committee, proposes a "less is more" approach that continues to balance active and passive programming opportunities at the park and provides traditional park amenities. It addresses such elements as a new picnic shelter, ice rink improvements, tree removals and plantings, parking, the riverbank, utilities and more.
Redstone Park is among the open space properties in the Redstone area that are collectively addressed in the Redstone Parks and Open Space Management Plan, adopted in 2010. Find it HERE. Starting in 2020, Open Space and Trails began looking at potential changes to the park, a process that began with a community survey that concluded in July 2020.
Then, a Steering Committee was assembled and held its first meeting, with OST staff and consultants, on Oct. 20, 2020, at the park. Additional, virtual meetings followed. Meeting summaries and materials provided to the committee for its initial meeting are available below.
