Do you want to see an outdoor skating or ice hockey rink? Carr Street pushed through to 57th? Better crosswalks next to the K-8 school? An additional community garden next to the old middle school? City ownership of the new park? Or just about any other idea you can come up with? Now is the time to have your say.
The City of Arvada plans to hold a series of three meetings to take public input on the design of the new park at Ralston Road and Carr Street. The construction of the new park is already in the City’s budget, but ownership of the new park and its design details are largely undecided.
Currently, Jeffco schools plans to loan the land for the park site to the City of Arvada if the City will fund most of the park’s construction and build it to Jeffco’s minimum standards. The new Arvada K-8 park was last discussed by the Arvada City Council during its lengthy “Ralston Complex” meeting on January 28th.
