What are these meetings all about?

Background and Brainstorming

The first meeting is all about your big ideas.  Hear about the background of this little park and then we’ll brainstom ways to make it better.  Dream a little on paper, talk about what’s important to you and listen to what other neighbors are thinking about Manor Park.  We will work in small groups to gather ideas and priorities in a creative manner so that Site Workshop can develop three designs which reflect this feedback and consider all site constraints.

Review and Prioritize

The second meeting is an opportunity to have a look at these three designs.  Maybe  one design stands out as the preferred, or maybe a hybrid of a couple designs needs to be considered.  Why does one design seem preferable to the others?  What’s most important?  What were the site constraints that eliminated some elements?  These comments are taken so that the final proposed design further reflects the wishes of the community.

Site Design Show and Tell

The third meeting will unveil the preferred design, with all its tweaks and considerations of site constraints.  Hear about the final design from Site Workshop.  Ask questions, add comments.  Celebrate!

Please plan to attend these meetings and become a part of the future of Magnolia Manor Park!
