Hance Park, the large green belt developed as a result of the I-10 Freeway construction, is getting the attention it deserves.
Cathleen Russo, with the City of Phoenix Parks and Recreation Department, is sending out a steady stream of communications to those interested in the evolution of the park, encouraging participation in the Hance Park Master Plan Steering Committee meetings.
The next meeting is this afternoon at Burton Barr Library at 3:00 p.m. There will be an Open House Concept event, in which ASU design students will display some preliminary designs for the park (example right). The design concepts will be on display from 1:30 to 3:00 p.m. Thirteen 6-year landscape architect students are participating and will be available to answer questions.
The invitation from Russo:
Greetings Committee Members, neighbors and Friends of Hance Park,
This is a special reminder to you all. Prior to our Friday Hance Park Master Plan Steering Committee meeting held at Burton Barr Library, there will be an Open House Concept Event. ASU design students will display some preliminary design ideas for the public to view. This will allow you the opportunity to look at some of the concepts and have a dialog with the students and give feedback on the design ideas. I encourage you to share this invitation with your organizations and friends, as we welcome everyone’s involvement. The Open House Concept begins at 1:30, TODAY, October 7, 2011 at the Burton Barr Library auditorium located at 1221 North Central Ave. The regular meeting will follow at 3:00 p.m. which you are welcome to attend.
