Conway Park Planning Session #2
A large and engaged group of neighbors attended the second Conway Park Community Workshop on May 20. The session was a great opportunity for residents to share their ideas and feedback on the proposed plans for the north end of the park. If you weren’t able to attend that afternoon, we’d still like to hear your feedback. Presentation boards along with comment forms will be online for you to review until June 8 at tinyurl.com/conway-park-2.
