We invite you to the Ferguson Park District Neighborhood Event on Saturday, October 27th, from 11:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. at Ferguson Park. This is a FREE event that the City of Temple will host to receive feedback from the Ferguson Park District Neighborhood residents and owners. Your feedback will help guide us as we develop the Ferguson Park Neighborhood Plan. There will be free activities and games for kids to enjoy as the parents provide feedback to City staff and consultants. We will also have free food and refreshments for everyone who attends!
Ferguson Park Neighborhood Plan
The current year budget includes an allocation of funding to begin a strategic plan for the redevelopment of the Ferguson Park District Neighborhood. That project will begin very soon and the results of that plan should be used to guide the implementation of the programs proposed in the FY 2019 Budget. As part of our Neighborhood Revitalization Program, this project will develop schematic design for the water and wastewater utilities for the Ferguson Park District Neighborhood to improve the infrastructure for water delivery to the District and review wastewater infrastructure. The Concept Design will explore options for improvements to the Ferguson Park District to enhance the neighborhood. Elements for pedestrian, bike and vehicular mobility will be explored as well as beautification elements such as intersection enhancements, landscaping, signage, monuments, etc. The final product will be a conceptual design for the full extents of project and include Concept and Schematic Design for amenities such as pedestrian and bike access, landscaping, signage, connectivity, etc.
When you arrive to the event, there will be a check-in station at the front of the park directly adjacent to South 24th Street. Please stop by this station first to check-in before entering the park. At the check-in station, you will receive a card that you will keep with you as you visit the 7 stations and provide feedback to City staff and consultants. After you complete each station, you will receive a punch on your card. Once you have all 7 punches on your card, you will be able to submit your card for a chance to win a FREE flat screen TV!
The 7 stations will cover the following topics:
• Code Enforcement
• Transportation and Pedestrian Improvements
• Housing Issues
• Ferguson Park and Jeff Hamilton Park
• Living in Ferguson Park District Neighborhood
• Ferguson Park District Neighborhood Wish List
• What do you like better – THIS or THAT?
Habitat for Humanity and NeighborWorks Homeownership Center will also have booths set up at this event that you can visit to receive more information about their services. Please come by the event to provide feedback and have the opportunity to meet and speak with City of Temple staff and leadership.
