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:

Probably would cost more, but it seems to me that the sidewalk connecting Lone Oak on Belmont Park Terrace should run on the west side of Belmont Park Terrace, crosswalk with flashing amber at Castleman Drive to access the Park and the continuation of the sidewalk on the East side of Belmont Park Terrace down to Shackleford.

still concerned that the committee, metro,etc don't recognize the amount of foot traffic entering the park at the Castleman Dr/Belmont park terrace entrance. the entrance is not marked, and it's dangerous to cross here with the speeding cars on the road.parking is still an issue.the flashing light in the prev comment would help....even painting some symbols on the road might get some attention. putting a sidewalk inside the park is taking space for a small parking area.folks with small children park on the road and create a potential accident situation, to get the the children's play area.
