The elements are placed into active and passive spaces bisected by a 20-foot easement.
The design limits parking spaces to 19, but officials discussed eliminating an oak tree to increase the number by three or four spaces.
The elements will be phased, with the passive space south of the easement first, including the pavilion, memorial and concrete stairway. They will be followed by the restrooms and parking lot, with the amphitheater/skatepark last.
“I’m a pretty creative guy, and I could not have come up with a better plan,” councilman Matt Casey enthused. “I think this is pretty much our park.”
City Administrator Ken Pfeifer said the next step will be determining how to fund the improvements.
