In January 2018 the City awarded a contract for design services to Verde Design, Inc. The design phase kicked off in February 2018.

The City held community outreach meetings in March and April 2018 to help develop a preferred conceptual design. Feedback from neighbors, park users and other community members will assist in determining the scope of work.
