Calahan Park Master Plan

The Final Public Meeting

On November 30th, 2021, BPRW hosted the third and final virtual public meeting to walk through and review the final draft master plan for Calahan Park. Our consultant team, led by Offshoots, Inc., provided an overview of the project and feedback obtained from the four proposed concept plans presented in August and at in-person events at the park and online since. The public weighed in and asked questions to clarify the plan and next steps. From here, the Offshoots team will be wrapping up a final report with the project process and final outcome and the City team will work on phase 1 of the plan implementation: putting a bid out for the first part of the playground replacement for which we have funding this year.

We held the 2nd Virtual Public Meeting August 5th, 2021 from 7-8:30pm.

On August 5th, 2021, BPRW hosted a second virtual public meeting inviting the community to view and hear about the proposed master plan menu for Calahan Park. Our consultant team, led by Offshoots, Inc., provided an overview of the project and feedback to date, presented different approaches to park components and allowed the public to weigh in through an interactive series of polls throughout the evening. Poll feedback and additional open conversation at the end of the meeting will be compiled while opportunities for in-person engagement in the park are being developed. From there, Offshoots and the City team will determine a way forward to wrap up the master plan. A third and final public meeting will be scheduled in the fall to present the final plan.

Notes from the First Public Meeting

On May 13th, 2021, BPRW hosted a virtual public meeting inviting the community to tell us about their Calahan Park – what works, what doesn’t, what opportunities exist to make it better. Our consultant team, led by Offshoots, Inc., provided an overview of the project, identified project goals, the site analysis they have completed thus far and provided opportunities for individuals to interact via poll, the chat and a breakout session 

Over 80 individuals registered for the virtual meeting. Attendance reached 40 individuals on a beautiful spring evening as the design team provided an overview of the project, identified project goals, the site analysis they have completed thus far and provided opportunities for individuals to interact via a poll, the chat and a breakout session. The city and design teams have deliberated on the feedback received during the public meeting to explore ways forward for Calahan Park based on all the concerns, opportunities and challenges of the site heard to date.

  1. Why was this FINAL public meeting not publicized on Front Porch Forum, which I believe is the most widely used platform for the community to learn about local events?

  2. It was posted city-wide in late November. Hopefully people saw it there. Let us know if you have any questions about joining.
