We are head over heels with excitement! We've just returned from a meeting with Catherine Stefani, Legislative Aide to Supervisor Mark Farrell. Ms. Stefani gave us the incredible news that $1,343,000 has been budgeted for Alta Plaza Park repairs and renovation over the next two years! We are enormously grateful for the support of Supervisor Farrell and his staff in making known the deteriorated and unsafe conditions at the park and the desperate need for repairs and renovation. Thank you Supervisor Farrell, Ms. Stefani, and the great team at Supervisor Farrell's office!
Master Plan Development
Following a search and selection process, we are happy to report that Friends of Alta Plaza Park now have on board an experienced and notable landscape architecture firm to develop a master plan for the park. Miller Company, the firm that helped design the renovation of Lafayette Park, begins working with FOAPP and the community next week (July 22, 2014). In the upcoming months, the firm will be conducting surveys to gain a better understanding of the infrastructure needs of the park and how the community views the park's facilities. These surveys and studies will create a basis for proposals and suggestions that will be presented to the Recreation and Parks Department and to the community for process and approval. Three community meetings will be held during the next several months to obtain community consensus on the proposals. Please check the Events page on this website for announcement of the meeting dates, or E-mail us to be placed on a mailing list for the announcement.
