The third public meeting is scheduled for 5:30 p.m. Wednesday, May 25 at Citizens Hall, 124 10th St., in conjunction with the Parks and Recreation Commission work session. Oxbow Design Collaborate and the National Parks Service will present the next round of conceptual plans for Bear River Park, which are based on feedback received at the first two community meetings and the public information website at

Anyone who is interested reviewing the plans and providing feedback is encouraged to attend. After this meeting, the next step will be to take the plan to City Council for review and approval.

The goal of the planning effort is to create a viable, financially feasible master plan for the site and to guide the next phase of park improvements. The plan was last updated in 2004.
