Anderson Park Renovation Process
The Parks and Recreation Department published the Request for Qualifications (RFQ) for contracting with consultants to prepare the master plan. Submissions have been received and consultants were interviewed in February. The City awarded a contract to Moore Iacofano Goltsman, Inc. (MIG) in the amount of $124,950 for the Anderson Park Renovation Master Plan.
May 2017 Assessments completed on the current conditions of the park, site and buildings to be used as a baseline for design.
MIG consultants organized focus groups consisting of City staff, residents, facility and park users, and other stakeholders to gather input. A Community Open House was also held on June 8th at the Anderson Gym for residents to provide ideas and input for the renovation of the park. MIG is putting together several design concepts based on input received that will be presented to the Anderson Park advisory committee and the public.
