Thanks to everyone who came out for last night's community meeting to talk about the park.
In case you missed it, here are pictures of the sidewalk plans for Belmont Park Terrace. Public Works and Civic designed the plan to connect Lone Oak to Arden Place by coming into the park (to avoid cutting down all the trees along the park border). A portion of the asphalt walking path will be replaced with sidewalk, for ADA compliance. The trees that are removed to make way for the sidewalk will be replaced. Public Works was asked to look at placing a cross walk at the Castleman intersection and said that they will do so. Comments at the meeting were that many wished the plan had covered the segment from Shackleford to Arden Place, instead of the park segment, because it is more dangerous.
If you have comments on the plan, let us know and we will share them with Councilman Pulley and Public Works.
And here are the items discussed about the park:

On February 21, 6pm, at Hillsboro High School, Russ Pulley will be hosting a community meeting. We will be presenting plans for the park and Festival, and need your input and help! We particularly need help brainstorming sponsors and features for the Festival (set for Sept. 15, 2018) and working on a beautification committee for the park.
Also, there will also be representatives from Metro who will present the proposed design for the Belmont Park Terrace sidewalk (alongside Green Hills Park).
What else is new in and near the park?
