The Parks Department will give a presentation to the Southgate Neighborhood Council next week about the proposed renovation to the Southeast Sports Complex and seek input on the design theme of the playground and park overall. The presentation will be during the regular SNC monthly meeting on Wednesday, September 5th at 7pm at ESD 101 on Regal Street.
A copy of the presentation the Parks Department gave to the Spokane Design Review Board last week explaining the scope of the project and showing their initial ideas can be seen here.
On Wednesday, August 22nd, the Spokane Design Review Board will hold a Collaborative Workshop to review the plans for Phase I of the renovations of the Southeast Sports Complex. The meeting is at 5:30pm in the Council Briefing Center at City Hall.
The Parks Department is acting on the Master Plan developed a couple years ago and includes new amenities like a splash pad, updated playground, and amphitheater/performance space. It will also coordinate with the improvements being installed as part of the KXLY development. There are some slight changes from the earlier plan, the softball fields have mostly been removed and the trail component is better defined.
You can read the submittal from the Parks Department and the report developed by City staff about the design here. Public comments will be taken in person at the Design Review Board meeting and can also be submitted to City staff Dean Gunderson or DRB Community Assembly Liaison Kathy Lang.
This is the Agency and Department Comment Period. There will be additional chances to comment during the public comment period, during the Hearing Examiner review of the PUD application, and at the Plan Commission and City Council when they consider the recently added Comp Plan Amendment to remove the Crestline connector from the City’s Arterial Street Map.
You can send your comments this round to Tami Palmquist at the City’s Planning Department: firstname.lastname@example.org. They need to be in by 5pm on Tuesday, July 31st.
Check our Minutes and Agendas page for the agenda for our June meeting. The minutes from May are not up yet, but we will post them as soon as we have them.
