What a turnout! We were impressed that 60+ community members of all ages and interests came to the CPAC Meeting on Monday, July 16th at the Kiawanda Community Center to hear the NVCA presentation on the community park proposed for the Cable Landing property. Quite a showing for a Monday night meeting on a beautiful summer day.
In keeping with NVCA’s mission, to provide recreational, cultural and educational opportunities in South County, the community park proposed would include space not only for recreation but also a place for the community to sponsor cultural and educational events. Uses being considered include picnic areas, covered activity areas, playgrounds, an amphitheatre, a future interpretive center and the potential for a skate park.
The NVCA presentation also shared a brief history of the organization as well as the status of the lease.
There was a good discussion and participation. The skate board community was well represented and expressed their support for a skate park for a portion of the property. Neighbors to the proposed park were also in attendance and expressed their concern for parking, noise, traffic and security. There were no major objections to the park, just that it be planned out responsibly.
The presentation is attached.
It is this type of participation that makes our community great. – CPAC offers an opportunity for community members to share their ideas and concerns regarding community development. Come to the meetings and learn how the land use process works.
