Parks & Recreation Improvements - OUTDOOR Meeting - October 24, 2020

An engaging, yet physically distant, outdoor event was held on the Jefferson Park tennis courts, from 1-3pm, on October 24th. Neighbors helped design the future of Jefferson Park and plan other future park & recreation improvements in the Dearington Neighborhood. The group considered a variety of improvements, including street and trail improvements to improve park access and transportation options, as well as underused City-owned sites in the neighborhood, and the heart of the neighborhood - Jefferson Park. The valuable conversations and input collected will drive proposals staff  will bring back to the neighborhood.
