Genesee Park Remediation 9/5 Community Meeting Notes
Thank you to the residents and community members that joined us in the park this past Saturday, 9/5. Here are a few summary takeaways from the group discussion:
· Everyone was concerned with the health and safety of residents;
· Everyone wanted us to work with the remediation design team to pursue alternatives for saving as many of the trees as possible, especially the larger diameter trees;
· A request was made to look into electric and water access for neighborhood events;
· An idea of replacing the diagonal sidewalk with bricks was brought forward;
· Maintenance of the park was noted as a concern; and
· Neighbors were interested in more park benches through the donation program;
· Residents wanted to see street trees replaced or planted on all streets throughout the Foundry Area.
Important Update: No remediation of the park will be done this Fall as additional possibilities for the remediation plan are pursued.
If you missed this meeting, please know that a duplicate meeting will be held this Saturday, 9/12 at 10AM in Genesee Park.
