I am glad they are considering these issues.  Thank you.

My immediate concern is the park design.  Will it incorporate the need for a rear addition to the building and driveway for trucks.  Not saying to build that addition NOW, just saying that whatever the park design is, it's got to be set back for future building expansion.  Or does the city want to pay more in the future to redesign the park again.

Getting it built was the easy part --- now comes the hard part -- maintaining it. There are a lot of naysayers out there ready to pounce on any problems that may arise from this project.
The city manager must inspect this park during the day and during the evening to insure that everything is in order and that the appropriate department heads carry out their responsibilities.
If there is a light out -- fix it. If there is a garbage can that is overflowing -- empty it. If there are loiterers -- remove them.
There is a lot riding on this.

THe centermost rectangle of the park has surrounding sidewalks that are too narrow.  Or, perhaps the entire center should be patio pavers.  I hope that is the plan, not grass.  With the intensity of activity in that center rectangle, grass would be a mistake.  The park will be used not only for outdoor arts events, but possible flee markets or other things going on.  As Homer' said, maintenance is the key
