Senior City Planners, Scott Robinson and Stephen Rijo presented slides and narrative concerning the East Central Area Plan to a well-attended audience at CPFAN’s Nov. meeting.

Post meeting, Robinson reports he heard the following concerns about the ECAP’s impact on City Park from the audience:

*Include the City Park Design Advisory Committee (part of the City Park Master Plan) in ECAP concepts and design
*Make sure recommendations don’t favor institutional expansion in City Park
*Would like to see more green in renderings
*Concern about impacts on flooding and the use of impervious surfaces
*Concerns about Traffic Calming and the use of roundabouts.
