Document Description
The proposed project will occur in two phases of construction. The first phase of construction will occur in the northern half of the property and integrate with the existing building facilities. The second phase will occur in the southern half of the site. Phase One - Within the Phase one area are existing buildings, which include a community building and the modular office building. Phase one of the development will include a community garden; covered picnic areas; a skate park, concrete play elements including a Ping-Pong table, benches, foosball, corn hole and chess/checkers; and other elements like landscaping, bicycle racks, storage, lighting and extended parking. A loop road will provide access to the parking and facilities with two entrances from Meadowbrook Loop. Approximately 35-40 parking spots will be formally established within the project area. Phase Two - Phase two of the development will consist of a bicycle pump track, pickle ball courts, a restroom/concessionaire stand and other elements such as landscaping, benches, and lighting. A natural area will be left as-is in the southwestern corner to avoid the existing stream channel. ( Full Project Description is included on a separate page)
