November and December events

UPDATE, 11/17: Help neighbors finalize plans for Santa Rita Park.

Important meeting: Wed. Dec 5
, 5:30-6:45pm, Sam Lena Library, 1607 S. 6th Ave.

Santa Rita Park neighbors – We’ve now had two park design public workshops with the UA Drachman Institute, and we’ll have another – maybe the last – on Dec 5 to discuss and try to decide on a new neighborhood vision for Santa Rita Park improvements.

Considerations include: skate park, 22nd St. widening, softball fields, pool, parking, dogs, re-vegetation, trees, homeless, gardens, art, benches, ramadas, play areas for kids, traffic control, exercise path and more.

Your review and comments are requested Dec 5. Please be there.


Park planning with neighbors and UA Drachman Institute

Nov 17
, Santa Rosa Center, 1080 S. 10th Ave., 2-4pm. Visual presentation of community input.

Dec 5, Sam Lena Library, 1607 S. 6th Ave., 5:30-6:45pm. Final/more revisions and possible plan approval (at regular SRPNA monthly meeting).

Another Dec 5 agenda item: Consider moving 08 meetings to first Saturdays at 2pm, to increase participation and allow for more meeting time.

Finally, a possible Dec agenda item is 22nd St. widening planning, with TDoT and city consultant planners, but it may be set for Jan to allow for adequate time.

Happy holidays.
