The city is holding two neighborhood workshops to receive citizen ideas and input.
The first workshop is from 6:30-8 p.m. Wednesday at Chipeta Elementary School, 2340 Ramsgate Terrace. The second one is from 9-10:30 a.m. Saturday, also at the elementary school.
“The park will be improved with extensive input from the citizens living within the community and with the involvement of the Mountain Shadows Community Association (MSCA) and many of the neighborhood homeowners associations in the area,” the city said.
The project is expected to be completed by September. A timeline and more information can be viewed at SpringsGov.com/MSMP. A park survey and a drawing sheet for children to submit ideas can also be downloaded from the webpage, the city said.
The park is adjacent to Chipeta elementary, so the parks department is working with School District 11 and project sponsors to integrate the school grounds and facilities “where possible to provide a wonderful asset for the community,” the city said.
“This project has been made possible thanks to Colorado Springs Together, several generous corporate sponsors and the involvement of other organizations and businesses across Colorado Springs,” the city said.
