Sedona AZ (February 20, 2020) – Sedona residents are invited to attend public meetings and a design charrette to give feedback on possible changes at Posse Grounds Park to accommodate the community’s needs during an evaluation currently being conducted of the park. The multi-day event will be held at The Hub at Posse Grounds Park at 525-B Posse Ground Rd.
The public is invited to attend two meetings:
- Meeting 1: Tuesday, Feb. 25, 2020, 5 p.m. – 6:30 p.m.
- Project introduction and preference survey.
- Meeting 2: Thursday, Feb. 27, 2020, 5 p.m. – 6:30 p.m.
- Alternatives evaluation.
This process will be in the form of a multi-day design charrette featuring collaborative problem solving and decision making to develop the community’s ideas into graphic concepts and design alternatives. If residents can’t attend the two meetings, they may also drop by The Hub any time during the day between 9 a.m. and 4 p.m. on Wednesday, Feb. 26 and Thursday Feb. 27 to talk with the project team and ask questions.
The plan that is produced based on public feedback will be a comprehensive evaluation of Posse Grounds Park and will provide recommendations for possible design changes to the park land. More specifically, the evaluation will provide an analysis of the current, as well as future needs for the park to function as a sports venue, event venue, passive recreation location, performing arts venue and yet to be determined needs/ideas that could benefit most park users. It will also identify constraints, limitations and possibilities for mingling existing park amenities with new additions.
For more information, call the city’s Parks and Recreation Department at (928) 282-7098.
I do not think I will be able to attend but would like to offer an idea.
I think Posse Grounds would be an incredible place to have an all age
Community Center. Ashland OR has a YMCA that is amazing. It has an indoor pool, a place for seniors, activities for all children ages like dance, gymnastics etc AND the the most beautiful work out facility. I do not know if Sedona could end up with a YMCA or YWCA but Ashland is not much different in size than Sedona.
what is so great about Ashlands facility is that it is for all ages – -its inclusive. We should combine the “senior” center with the Community Center so that all ages can communicate with each other. No seniors should be segregated away — They can have their own area of the building but the public spaces must be all inclusive — Just like the Federal mandate for the handicapped in schools.
Posse Grounds is so beautiful —- It is a perfect place for our residents to have
their ‘TOWN” — Uptown is really not for the residents — We need a gathering place — and it is right here in the middle of things but up on the hill — tourists do not go there —-
I would be happy to volunteer to work on this if needed.
many thanks for considering my idea —
