The community group helping to organize the design process around Capitol Hill’s next public green space wants you to know about a meeting Monday night that will be the first of two sessions to provide feedback in the design development phase of the Broadway Hill Park project. Here’s your chance to design your own Capitol Hill park:
The space formerly known as “FedRep Park”, at the corner of Federal Ave E and E Republican St, now officially Broadway Hill Park, is hosting the first of two public meetings on Monday night to gather community input for design development. We are now in phase 2 of designing the new park with the landscape architecture firm that will be facilitating the meeting, which involves focusing on details of the design that was roughly laid out through a series of community meetings last summer. Current topics include materials, art elements, children’s elements and play, natural features, the community garden, and more. Everyone is encouraged to attend and help shape the new park into a public space that will really benefit the neighborhood. After the last meeting in April, the design will be finished and we will seek funding for construction.Monday, February 27th 7pmLowell School (1058 E Mercer St)The next and final meeting will be on April 29th at 2pm at the Seventh Day Adventist Church.The community group volunteering to help create this new park meets at the Capitol Hill library at 6:30pm on the second monday of each month.
