The 4,500 square foot, triangular-shaped lot at the corner of 19th and Madison has all the potential to be transformed from a rundown, vacant lot to a tranquil green, urban oasis, but before the makeover begins, the city needs public input.
We’ve told you about the 19th and Madison Park, next to the Hearing, Speech and Deafness Center, before:
The park’s boosters received a $15,300 grant from the Department of Neighborhoods for a public meeting and design process to create a community-supported plan for the park. The goal is to create a park “for all ages and abilities” that is safe, relaxing and fun.
Landscape artist J.A. Brennan & Associates and public artist Carolyn Law will then make the designs a reality.
Meet the Steering Committee, learn about the project and share ideas for the park at three upcoming meetings:
Time: 6:30 p.m. – 8:30 p.m.
Location: Hearing, Speech & Deafness Center – 1625 19
