What would a new community park look like?

Over the past few months, Stanton Heights neighbors have been discussing the idea of transforming a scraggly lot into a community park. With the help of Patrick Dowd’s office, local landscape designer Christine Brill has met with interested community members to talk about their ideas, concerns, and hopes to make this a space Stanton Heights can enjoy. The results of their input are compiled in the slideshow above. It is important to note that these design ideas are still merely that – ideas – and are open to further community feedback. A final plan has not been agreed upon, and there are still several hurdles to cross before making this dream a reality. No additional planning meetings are scheduled yet, but we will update our blog, facebook page, and email list as those occur and invite all interested community members to attend.

    This looks fantastic. Is the “compost” area for neighborhood family composting? I am very excited!

    The clean up today was awesome! I met so many more neighbors today. Thanks to everyone who organized it and to the additional volunteers.

    I know there has been a desire to have a stop light installed at Stanton and Woodbine. Has anyone addressed the need for safer street crossing for the park? I have been thinking of a three way stop at the corner of Stanton and McCandless. Any one have feedback on that idea or information on how to get the city to put up a stop sign?
