Coming soon to our Mile Square: a temporary "pop-up park" on the 6.1 acre BASF site- and a temporary parking lot!
The proposed park and lot design (above) will be presented at tonight's City Council meeting, to be followed by a vote on the Resolution approving the design.
This one seems like a no-brainer, folks.
60% of the park features proposed are "re-usable" to minimize cost and suggested funding sources include temporary lot parking fees, municipal Open Space Trust Fund, sponsorships and/or donations. The park surface will be the new asphalt cap after the 6.1 acre site was remediated.
The pop-up park proposed amenities are detailed in the City's memo:
The temporary park will be used for 2-3 years until it is replaced by the permanent resiliency park.
