Residents are helping the Township plan improvements to Suburban Park

Date: March 7, 2019

 

Above: Suggestions and concerns expressed by those who attended the 2nd Suburban Park Master Plan Update public meeting on January 17.

Suburban Park is getting a master plan update, and the Township is excited about the community's participation. Residents continue to express strong interest in helping to plan the park's future. 

The Township will host the third and final public meeting on the Suburban Park Master Plan Update from 6 to 7:30 pm on Wednesday, March 27, at the Quality Inn Conference Room, 1274 North Atherton Street. Residents may expect a presentation on the final Master Plan as well as a discussion on project costs, phasing, and prioritization and possible grants for consideration. 

Background
The Township held two previous public engagement meetings on November 5, 2018, and January 17, 2019. At the January 17 meeting, the Township's consultant, YSM Landscape Architects, gave a presentation on the pre-final design of the park's master plan. The pre-final design reflected suggestions from residents who attended the first public engagement meeting on November 5, 2018, comments from the Steering Committee, and responses to an online community survey. Eighty people who use the park responded to the survey.

Thank you to all the community residents who completed the survey, attended the public meetings, and emailed the Township or the consultant directly to help establish a vision for Suburban Park.
