public information program

The public information program is led by George K. Baum & Company, a firm with a proven track record in engaging local communities in public policy decisions. The process includes engaging a 28-member Citizen Task Force, multiple community information meetings, a mail survey and other public outreach efforts. Click here for more information on all the proposed projects and the public information program. 

The park board has also approved a contract for continuing services with Williams Architects. As a second phase of concept design, Williams Architects will facilitate additional public meetings and focus groups to solicit input for the design of an expanded or new community ice center. This work will include a market impact study, assessment and recommendation for programming, and conceptual design renderings.

Following all community input, the park district board of commissioners will decide whether to pursue the proposed capital projects.
