At the June 18 City Council meeting, City Council reviewed 90% complete design plans for the new Heroes Park. The process began in January 2023 with the appointment of the Heroes Park Design Committee, comprised of veterans and citizens. The committee identified desired elements for the park including event space, hero recognition, landscaping, areas for shared historical information, a water element, and sculptures. A conceptual design was recommended to the City Council in June 2023, and a contract to prepare full construction documents was approved in July 2023. A public Open House to gather community feedback was held in February 2024 and several presentations have been given at City Council Worksessions to provide updates at the 30%, 60%, and now 90% design milestones. Next steps will be finalizing the construction documents and placing the project out for bid in August. The current schedule calls for construction to begin in late October.
