Joint Open House Set for Parks Masterplan and Stream Rehabilitation Project May 9

The public is invited to an open house Tuesday, May 9, on the Irvingdale, Rudge and Stransky Parks Masterplan and the Stream Rehabilitation Project in Irvingdale and Rudge Parks. The meeting is from 4 p.m. to 6 p.m. at the Irving Recreation Center, 2010 Van Dorn Street. The public may park in the lot adjacent to the center. Informal presentations of the final masterplan will be given at 4:15 p.m. and 5:15 p.m. City representatives and project consultants will be available to answer questions.

The Parks Masterplan open house is being held in conjunction with the Stream Rehabilitation Project as the proposed channel improvements will be integral to the proposed park improvements. The Stream Rehabilitation Project consists of stabilizing the stream channel that runs through these parks where the erosion of the channel is threatening park infrastructure. This project could include adding grade controls and bank measures. Stream rehabilitation measures are expected to begin in the fall.
