The Jessieville/Industrial Park neighborhood listening session
Set for Thursday, October 1, 6:30pm at Rigoni’s Inn. For residents and those who work in the Industrial Park.
Why Listening Sessions?
The Miners Park listening sessions are designed to discover what area residents, businesses and organizations would like the Miners Park to become. Community comments will help design the future Miners Park.
The City’s 2014 Comprehensive Plan “recognizes the Miners Memorial Heritage Park as an important heritage site and recreational/open space amenity in the community to be protected and preserved for the enjoyment of all users.”
We want community input!
The discussion will focus on neighborhood access to the Miners Park and initiatives to make the Miners Park reflect local neighborhoods and heritage.
Paul Kostelnik of the Friends of the Miners Park said “We’ve collected a lot of ideas for the Miners Park. Too many to cover in a one hour listening session. I invite residents to check out the ideas and issues we’re considering for the Miners Park Master Plan and make your comments at the neighborhood meetings.” .
The first hour of listening sessions will be dedicated to comments from neighborhood residents. Kostelnik added: “We will present a few slides covering neighborhood issues to guide the discussion in the first hour, then open up the floor to all area residents for as long as people want to speak.”
A location for the Aurora location listening session is still being coordinated.
