Project Status: Planning Phase
Project Overview: A Mini Master Planning public process will start in July 2015. What is a Mini Master Plan? It provides an inclusive public process to determine the future uses of the park. It engages stakeholders to understand park usage patterns and needs. It completes an inventory of existing park amenities and infrastructure. It creates a clear "road map" of how to move forward with changes to the park. It offers clear direction to the City and community partners to secure additional resources/funding to improve the park. A public meeting was held July 27, 2015 to discuss park uses and concepts. A second public meeting was held on November 10, 2015 to gain feedback on preliminary concept plan. This plan can be found below under "Important Documents."
Project Background: Memorial Park is one of four qualifying parks for the Grand Avenue Parks Fund. The fund is part of the larger St. Louis River Corridor Project supported by the 1/2 and 1/2 tax fund. This specially designated funding will provide "destination-level" investments to qualifying parks. The Grand Avenue Parks Fund invests in community partnerships with user groups and residents to co-create and co-manage outdoor recreation experiences in the neighborhoods along the corridor. The Grand Avenue Parks Fund will provide 1:1 match grants up to $550,000 per park.
Funding Source: Up to $550,000 in match 1/2 and 1/2 funding
