How is the community involved in this project

It is a requirement of the grant application that the community be engaged throughout the process.

Beginning back in October 2020, several outreach meetings were held both in person at Alicia Park, and virtually through Zoom. We received input from community members of all ages including students at John Reed Elementary School, adults, families and seniors.

As a result of these meetings we were able to determine the most popular elements for the park project included an inclusive playground, slash pad, community gathering area, and community garden. 

We are now looking to the community again to help us design these elements to tell us more about how you want to see these elements in your park. If you are interested in providing feedback please participate in our Build Your Dream Park Project above. 

If you have additional questions please contact Cindy Bagley - Deputy Director of Community Services  at 707-588-3456 or at cbagley@rpcity.org
