ASTORIA OR, March 28: The City of Astoria together with Parks planning consultants from GreenWorks and Angelo Planning Group will hold a public open house meeting at Shively Park on Tuesday, April 11 starting at 5:30 pm to discuss McClure Park and Shively Park proposed Master Plans. There will be a presentation on both parks at 6:00 pm followed by questions, answers, comments, and discussion. The Astoria City Council identified planning for these two parks as a priority in the recently adopted City-wide Astoria Parks Comprehensive Master Plan. Individual Master Plans for these parks will address future plans for development and/or redevelopment of these two parks.
A first round of public open house meetings was held in March and provided community members the opportunity to comment on how these two Parks should be maintained and/or improved in the future.
This second round of public open house meetings will provide community members the opportunity to review and comment on optional plans presented by the planning team. Final draft Master Plans will be presented to the City Council for consideration later this year.
The draft Plans will include ideas concerning:
- Preferred uses and activities
- Maintenance of natural features
- Safety considerations
- Construction and/or maintenance of Park amenities
- Access to the Parks
Light refreshments will be provided.
