The park, creek restoration and any bridge references are all part of the larger proposal, and will require County permitting and approval. In order to make this a reality, we will need to work together to identify long-term funding opportunities for the development and ongoing maintenance of the park site. The Park space is enabled by a land dedication intended to compliment the new housing that is also planned in the project implementation, creating a true community commons for residents and neighbors.
Create a 16 acre public park that enhances the health, beauty, value and functionality of the surrounding community by regenerating the natural ecosystem including the existing riparian buffer zone by providing family-friendly recreation, education, food production and pedestrian access.
Functional goals of this vision are to enrich and support the following:
Enhance the local community’s connection to and support of this unique piece of land
Promote pedestrian access and passive community interactions
Increase neighboring property value through proximity to greenway
Protect and enhance the area’s natural resources, attracting and supporting beneficial wildlife
Accessibility for a diversity of community members (i.e. seniors, adults, teens and children; dog-friendly; ADA compliant thoroughfares)
Promote unstructured recreation as well as small organized events
Maintain privacy for bordering residences
Create an overall system that is low-impact, low-maintenance, energy efficient, waterwise, and firewise.
Educate the public about natural ecosystems and growing healthy food through direct and indirect methods.
Integrate land history
Work with housing contractor and creek restoration team to create a fully integrated outcome across the evolution of planning and implementation.
Showcase and enhance native plantings, utilizing a diversity of bloom cycles and foliage variation for four-season sensory interest.
Implement and maintain four-season food production
Phase implementation overtime to optimize outcomes
