Project Updates

  • August 2022 - Public Meeting was held on August 30, 2022, from 5-7 pm at Plank Road Park to determine future amenities. The public meeting was well attended with 19 attendees signing the sign-in register sheet. BREC had one-on-one conversations with the interested citizens, many of whom live in the surrounding neighborhood and frequent the park on a regular basis. At the public meeting, BREC presented two park improvement options.
    Option ‘A’ would concentrate funds on constructing a new children’s playground. Under Option ‘A’, the remainder of the park would remain open green space.
    Option ‘B’ would split funding between a smaller playground with fewer play activities, and a new walking loop, which would be approximately an eighth of a mile in length.
  • October 2022 - After reviewing the results from the online public input survey and the in-person public meeting it was determined that a new playground featuring a small play structure and swings with a walking loop around the park will serve the neighborhood well. Construction documents are underway with construction to begin within the next two months.
