Monday night should be a good time for thinking big about Capitol Hill’s next green space. Following a weekend dedication of the completed Summit Slope Park, the community group organized to help guide the city as it plans a new park at the intersection of Federal and Republican is meeting Monday night with the architects who will design the new space:
Tonight is the first of three community meetings with the architects responsible for drawing up the plans for the park. We will be discussing what features we want to see in the park. The meeting will be at Lowell School and start at 6:30.
Even if you haven’t been involved with planning to date and previous design discussions, Monday night’s meeting is a good time to get involved.
CHS is checking into who won the design job. If you know which firm is handling, let us know in comments.
The FedRep Park group maintains a community site on Yahoo and a Twitter account if you’d like to follow along. Levy money went toward acquiring the park and city grants are covering the design process. The steps toward construction and beyond will require additional funding that the group will be leading the charge on. One way to help is to vote in this contest for the project that will provide landscaping at the park. Proceeds from registrations for June 11th’s Capitol Hill Garage Sale Day will also go to help the group’s cause. You can sign up today at http://capitolhillgaragesale.com
