The consultant will present design alternatives to the public and the Parks and Trails Commission. These park design alternatives were created based on the input from the community, city staff and stakeholders.
The East Redmond Corridor Master Plan encompasses the park properties along the eastern edge of the city. These parks include Juel, Farrel-McWhirter, Conrad Olson, Perrigo and Arthur Johnson, as well as the Bear & Evans Creek Trail and Greenway.
