Since April 2009, we’ve been working together to developing conceptual plans for a range of potential open space sites. All of these sites will be developed using public money - which is always a limited resource. As such, we need you, the community, to tell us which sites are your priorities. As money for construction becomes available, your votes will help us determine which sites will get constructed first.


About the Candidates

The final list of open space opportunity sites was determined with the community over the course of this planning process. We then developed a conceptual design for the eight finalists based on ongoing community input.

To help familiarize you with the proposed sites and what is being proposed, we’ve provided the following material, below:

  • A map of Showplace Square showing the location of the open space opportunity sites
  • A summary chart of all the sites, including a cost estimate for construction.
  • The conceptual design for each site.
  • An aerial photo of each site as it currently exists.
