Persons are encouraged to drop in at any time during the open house to meet with their Councilperson or speak with the project manager about the ongoing project as well as the Master Plan for Charlie Vettiner Park. Construction on portions of the nearly 300 acre park started in February and are expected to be completed in the summer of 2013.
Phase I of the Master Plan includes improvements along Charlie Vettiner Park Road, including additional parking spaces, green infrastructure drainage improvements wooden rail to prevent off-road driving and parking, and speed humps to reduce driving speed through the park. A concrete walk will also be constructed, extending from the Easum Road entry, approximately 1,500 feet into the park to connect to the walking loop.
In total, more than $690,000 in funding allocated through Metro Council Capital Infrastructure Funds and the Metro Budget will be allocated to Phase I of the Charlie Vettiner Master Plan.
