The Princeton Recreation Department will host a Community Park master plan open house from 4 p.m. to 7 p.m. on Thursday, March 30 at the municipal building at 400 Witherspoon Street.
Residents will be able to share their feedback and ideas with officials at the meeting. Representatives from the town’s consulting firm, Suburban Consulting Engineers, will be at the meeting.
The gathering will be an open-house format. Recreation Department Director Evan Moorhead said members of the public do not need to attend the meeting for all three hours and can drop in any time during the open house.
A second public engagement meeting is scheduled for Thursday, June 8.
The municipality is developing concept plans for the 26-acre Community Park South facility with the goal of creating a park environment that is safe, sustainable, accessible, and environmentally friendly.
For more information about the project, please visit the recreation department’s website or
the Community Park South Master Plan Project webpage. The webpage contains a short community engagement survey in English and Spanish. Hard copies of the survey can be obtained at the Recreation Department office at 380 Witherspoon Street.
Final concept plans will be presented at a recreation commission meeting in late spring or early fall 2023 for endorsement by the Princeton Council.
“This is a project that has been long overdue, and we are thrilled to finally be starting the
community engagement process to make Community Park South the true community-oriented
park it should be, and the jewel in the crown of our park system in Princeton,” Councilwoman Michelle Pirone said in a written statement in a press release about the meeting.
