Dolores Park Renovation Community Meeting Thursday

Dolores Park

Event:  Dolores Park Rehabilitation Workshop #3
Date:   August 4th, 6:30PM
Place: Everett Middle School Cafeteria, 450 Church St. (use the 17th Street entrence through the parking lot)

The designing phase of the Dolores Park rehab project is approaching the final stretch, with the last two workshops in the participatory planning process taking place this month.

Workshop #3 will take place on August 4th, where community members will work in small groups to consider a range of approaches to designing each aspect of the park.  These alternative approaches will be based on the preliminary plans created by the participants at the June 30th workshop.  For example one set of alternatives will explore options for the bathrooms: should they be concentrated in the clubhouse as they were in several of the plans created on June 30th? Or should the bathrooms be distributed to two or three locations as was done in other plans created by community members?  After discussing the alternatives, participants will vote to decide their preferred direction for each aspect of the park.

At Workshop  #4 on August 25th, community members will review, refine and draft a plan that brings together all of the community’s preferred approaches.

After this final workshop, the Dolores Park Rehabilitation Project Steering Committee will continue to meet to assure all the communities of Dolores Park are represented throughout the project. The Steering Committee is composed of over 40 representatives of diverse community organizations, institutions and constituencies.
