Three park concepts and name options will be presented for residents to review and provide feedback.
VANCOUVER – Clark County Public Works, Parks and Lands division is hosting an open house about the future Minnehaha neighborhood park, 6-8 p.m. Wed., Dec. 13. Three park concepts and name options will be presented for residents to review and provide feedback. The concepts and name options will also be available for review and feedback via an online survey open through Jan. 5.
This past August, Parks and Lands hosted an open house and online survey to gather community input about the future development of the neighborhood park property on Northeast 17th Avenue, north of Northeast Minnehaha Street. Staff and consultants have reviewed the input received from the community and created three draft concepts for the park’s development and selected three park name options. The Dec. 13 open house will include a light meal and a presentation from 6:30-7 p.m. where staff will share more information about the concepts. Before and after the presentation, residents are invited to view the concepts and discuss them with staff.
An online survey is available on the project webpage through Jan. 5 for residents to review and provide input on the draft concepts and to vote on a park name. The survey is open to all residents, including but not limited to those who attend the open house.
Residents can attend the Dec. 13 open house in person or online. The in person open house will be hosted in the cafeteria/commons of Minnehaha Elementary School at 2800 NE 54th St. Signage will direct attendees to enter through the school’s north entrance. In addition to the school’s ADA parking spaces, additional spaces will be reserved for attendees with mobility limitations. Handouts translated into Russian, Spanish and Ukrainian will be provided.
Interpretation and other accommodations can be requested by contacting Lynde Wallick, project manager, at firstname.lastname@example.org or 564.397.5882. To participate online, residents can join the meeting via Webex using the information on the project webpage.
