There’s a Park and Recreation Advisory Board (PRAB) meeting tonight, with an Public Open House for Ames Park Master Plan scheduled (PDF). The meeting will be at 7:00 PM, in the Northfield High School Lower Cafeteria.
According to the Oct. PRAB minutes:
B. Erickson reported that 4 responses were received concerning the Ames Park Master Plan project by the October 3rd deadline. Bonestroo, with project manager John Slack will be awarded the contract. The firm and the project manager are both familiar with the City and with the downtown area and have completed a skateboard park project. Mr. Slack is currently the project manager for the Fifth and Water Street project and will insure a consistent design from Downtown to Highway 3 along Fifth Street.
Alas, there’s still no Park System Master Plan on the City’s web site, even though it was approved by the Council on Nov. 17.
