A public workshop was held on October 22, 2018 at the Tallahassee Recreation Centre, 168 Redoubt Way, Eastern Passage, to discuss the plan and potential opportunities for the Common. Staff delivered a brief presentation and led a workshop where participants identified opportunities and issues and shared their vision.
If you were unable to attend the meeting but would like to provide comment, please feel free to contact Stephen Cushing, Landscape Architect, Parks and Recreation, by December 1, 2018.
Staff will begin to incorporate what we heard from participants into a draft park plan which will be presented back to the community in early 2019. This web page will have details regarding a future meeting when they become available.
This fall, as part of our business plan, Parks and Recreation is looking to the Eastern Passage community to share their vision for how the Eastern Passage Common can be made more comfortable and functional for park visitors. Operating primarily as a connection between schools and subdivisions, and as an active sport park, we want to understand the park issues and opportunities as you see them.
At 29 hectares (71.5 acres) in area, the Eastern Passage Common is classified as a District Park. Identified in the Regional Plan, District Parks serve the recreation needs of several communities with a population in the range of 10, 000 people. A range of recreational uses are typically offered, including, walking and cycling trails, sports fields, picnic areas, play facilities for children, and areas for passive recreation uses that are left in a predominantly natural state.
The objective of this park planning project is to identify future park upgrades that are consistent with community input and that can be phased in over time.
