Council delays action on Riverfront park
Date published: 1/9/2013
Greenlaw told the council that she believed there is a "fundamental misunderstanding" among the council members about what was in front of them.
She said that several of the questions brought up by council members about parking, riverbank stabilization and other environmental issues and cost, among other things, would be part of what the consultant would address with the concept design.
Solley tried to address each issue brought up by other council members and what has already been done by the task force.
This meeting was the third time in recent months that the council has discussed plans for the park.
At its recent retreat, the council ranked completing the design for the park second on its list of priorities to get done over the next two years.
The park was started a few years ago, but the work was put on hold because of the downturn in the economy.
