Be a part of the initial planning process, come see the planned changes and give feedback and voice your concerns.  Should the creek be day lighted?  How will this plan improve the play fields?  Will this plan ease storm water flowing down the sidewalks and street?

Linda D’Avirro, Chair of the City’s Parks, Recreation and Open Space Advisory Committee (PROSAC) and a volunteer with the McLaren Park Collaborative, elaborates:

What is really great is this project will involve YOU as the designers of what you would like to see to improve the overflow and water runoff problem while possibly day-lighting portions of the creek that runs through the park (and neighborhood) enroute to Yosemite Slough.

McLaren Park is the very first planned improvement project taking place over the next 20 years in the City’s other watersheds, so YOU can lead the way in the community vision for McLaren –enriching the habitat, restoring the paths and the marshes, fixing McNab Lake, improving the muddy soccer fields and many other projects. The PUC wants to work closely with the community as this project takes place and take the ideas from McLaren’s project forward to others.

There are planned community meetings starting in late-October to move this project forward as soon as designed. Please share this information with neighbors and others who may be interested in attending next week or future PUC meetings.

Light refreshments will be served. See you there!
