Bainbridge park officials are looking for public input on the concept plan for Sakai Park.
The plan, developed by architect Jones & Jones, has been in the works for some time now. The firm was chosen by the park board last year to assess community suggestions for Sakai Park that were generated in 2016, following a six-month public outreach effort facilitated by Robert Linz and associates.
With the community’s recommended uses in mind, Jones & Jones developed several site plan options for Sakai Park, which were presented to the community at three public meetings last year.
Last month, Jones & Jones presented the park board with the concept plan they developed for Sakai Park. It reflects community input provided over a several year period, as well as site analyses specifying what can be done on the property given zoning and setback requirements and other constraints.
The board will discuss the concept plan developed by Jones & Jones for Sakai Park at the Feb. 15 board meeting and may vote on the plan.
Park officials are hoping interested islanders will review the concept plan and provide their input before the plan gets final approval.
The concept plan can be viewed on the park district’s website at www.biparks.org (click “Sakai” at left bottom corner on home page).
Public comments on the concept plan for Sakai Park may be submitted to senior planner Perry Barrett at firstname.lastname@example.org. Comments should be received by Jan. 31 to be included in the board packet for the Feb. 15 board meeting.
