The second Public Input Session for the proposed Park design was held at the BHS library on April 12. Architect, Johnpaul Jones, presented two proposed park designs and those in attendance broke up into small groups to discuss the proposals and contribute comments and suggestions. Johnpaul will take that input back to his office and, as much as is possible, incorporate the changes into a proposed final design.
The Task Force will present the proposed final design to the Bainbridge Island City Council, the Board of Directors of Kitsap Transit and The Bainbridge Island Metro Parks Board for final approval in early May.
In the mean time, volunteers are working on the interlocal agreement between the owners and the Park District as well preparing the applications for the permits that will be needed for actual park construction. Fundraising will soon begin in earnest.
