Fourth Community Meeting to Explore Programming Opportunities and Draft Site Plan

community meeting
September 23, 2018

 

What activities should be in the future of Dix Park? The topic of what community members want to be able to do in the park, The Park and Its Program, has been one of the most talked about topics.  Will there be fun and creative activities? Restorative or educational?  Activities for all ages and abilities? Our upcoming community meeting will not only build upon the programming feedback received at each of the previous meetings, but it will also unveil a draft site plan.

The site plan compiles ideas from each of six organizing themes that were the focus of earlier meetings: Region, Transportation, Site, Buildings, Partners, and Program.  We are nearing the end of the master plan process and this is an exciting time to see a draft of the complete vision of the plan come together. The input we have received thus far has helped craft this vision and we need your continued feedback and support to ensure this is a park for everyone, built by everyone!

Join us on Thursday, October 4th at Raleigh's new Union Station to learn more, engage with the design team, and provide feedback.  There will be two presentation sessions available, one at 5:30pm and the second at 7:00pm. Interactive information and feedback stations will be available to explore at any time during the meeting. If you cannot join us in-person, we welcome you to tune in to a live stream, here on our website, of the design team's presentation or provide feedback online at DixPark.org/Ideas!
