Agency Landscape has presented initial concepts for public review on the planned 10-12 acre Shipyards West Park, located at the mouth of Hogan’s Creek across from Maxwell House Coffee.
Your input is wanted! Here are several ways to participate and some things to consider below as your review the plans.
- Visit www.shipyardswest.com website and check back often to see if there are additional updates.
- Stop by to see and talk to park representatives at the following events featured in the Get Involved section of the Shipyards West website.
- Review the visual concepts and provide written feedback comments by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org or leaving a voicemail at (904) 800-8685.
- Attend a CPAC meeting the week of May 10th.
As you formulate your input, consider the following:
What you would like to see more of, less of, or differently?
- Games: currently shown are volleyball, pickle ball, lawn games, bocce courts, chess games. Are there other types of activities you would prefer to have? If the park ends up with just one or two of each game, is that okay?
- Features: Check out the open lawn, walking paths, trees, beach areas. Anything missing?
- Piers will provide fishing, kayaking/watercraft in a protected area, and a way to get up and close to the water’s edge. They are also connected to one another with some small islands. Do these look inviting and would you enjoy these activities?
- Proposed buildings: Consider the number, size, and placement and uses of the structures. Currently the existing Fire Museum is at the corner with three other structures proposed: The Pavilion, Food Hall and a standalone restaurant. Ground floor parking is proposed with the amenities on floors 2-3. Are they placed well and do they leave enough room for park space?
- Food & Drink: Is it important to have both a Food Hall and a Restaurant? How important is to feature local vendors and retail? There will be a cafe at MOSH on the adjacent property.
- Shade: Trees are planned in several areas; how important is shade and cooling effects to you?
- Connectivity: Multiple paths, riverwalk, connected piers and a potential bridge across Hogan’s Creek. Are these ave inviting and how well do they provide connectivity to other points of interest and along the riverfront?
We are formulating our view on the above but would like to know what you think!
