The City of Eugene is holding a community meeting this Wednesday to imagine a new future for the Park Blocks.
As part of the effort to develop downtown, the city wants to recreate the Park Blocks into a town square that better meets the needs of the community.
While every project has constraints, Urban Development Manager Will Dowdy says the goal is to create a space that represents the community.
“But, we’re looking for the creativity and the varied perspectives that our community can bring to this. So that what we end up with is truly a space that we can all be proud of and a space that will last for generations.”
The community forum will be open house style with activity stations to help guide community members in generating ideas. The event is kid friendly, so Dowdy encourages the whole family to come.
The meeting is from 5 to 9 pm Wednesday at Whirled Pies. Presentations will be at 5:30 and 7:30 pm.
