Washington Park Skate Spot
This project consists of two components, a 7,000 square foot skate spot and new parking lot located on the corner of Washington Avenue and Rose Street. Three skate spot design workshops were held over several months. These provided the community with the opportunity to engage with the consultant and take part in the planning and design of the space. All were very well attended, with approximately 50 participants at each. The result of these workshops was a beautifully designed skate spot that represents the culture and character of our community.
The second component of this project is a new parking lot that will be located along Rose St. 30% plans were submitted in December 2019. After staff review, it was requested that the parking lot location, originally proposed for Washington Avenue, be redesigned and relocated off of Rose St. On May 1, 2020 revised 50% plans addressing staff’s concerns and comments were submitted for review. Over the next two weeks, plans will be analyzed by the appropriate departments and comments will be sent back to the contractor. The entire project will be presented to the Planning Commission and the City Council Summer 2020. We anticipate construction of this project going out to bid late Fall 2020.
Community Meetings and Feedback
Our first community meeting was held May 28, 2019 at the East Valley Community Center. More than 50 people showed up to provide feedback on the design, features, theme, and more.
