The Park and The Site
The second public meeting was held Thursday, March 22 at the A.J. Fletcher Theater in the Duke Energy Center. Hundreds of community members listened to a presentation from the design team and then had the opportunity to provide feedback and share ideas. Highlights of the evening included a discussion on the restoration of Rocky Branch Creek, ideas on how to integrate the State Farmers Market and the Park and thoughts on greenway connections and parking.
The theme for the second community meeting was the Park and The Site. Designers from Michael Van Valkenburgh Associates shared their findings on the physical characteristics of the site and preliminary ideas for how park spaces and circulation could be organized in the future. Design ideas were inspired from community feedback at the first meeting and their continued research. Download their presentation below to learn more.
