From tonight’s meeting at The Kenney to get the status of the park to be built at the site above, former monorail property north of the new Beveridge Place Pub: More than 40 people; more than two hours; three proposed design options, discussed in small breakaway groups. No name yet; the Parks Department says it’s holding off till the design is firmed up. The proposed designs were presented under the names “pianoforte,” “terrazze,” and “affodante.” Major differences include how much grass, what kind of seating, etc. Parks is supposed to send us digital files tomorrow so we can show them to you here. Next step – feedback from tonight’s meeting, e-mail, etc., will be taken under advisement as a final proposed design is developed next month, and then it will be presented at another public meeting, expected in March; construction would start this fall.
