In 2018, the City purchased 6-acres (two, 3-acre parcels of ground), immediately west of City Hall, to be used for public space. At the time of the property acquisition, a citizen committee was completing the update of the City’s Parks and Recreation Action Plan and included, as part of their final work, a main Action Point of the Plan (Action Point #5) dedicated to the future use of this property. This plan was subsequently approved by the Planning and Zoning Commission and adopted, via Resolution #2019-22, by the City Council.
The City Council issued a Request for Proposals to begin the process of assessing the property for use as a Village Green and to undertake the planning and design process for this property in June 2019. In late 2019, the City entered into a contract with Human Nature, who was awarded the contract via the RFP process. Human Nature will lead a process throughout 2020, which will culminate in a Final Master Plan for the property’s development.
