Remember back in June when we posted about the possibility of an open air amphitheater making its debut in Downtown Harrisonburg? Well, progress has been made on this front and a public meeting will be held this Thursday, January 12, for all who are interested in hearing from a team of local citizens and public officials about recent visits they made to other successful urban parks in the region, and the team’s recommendations about what can be possible for our community.
“A downtown public park has been under consideration for several years and the logical next step was to learn from other communities about what works well and what is not a successful model,” says Eddie Bumbaugh, Executive Director of Harrisonburg Downtown Renaissance. “The team brought back many photographs and much information from the park tours and meetings with community representatives. We welcome the opportunity to ‘show and tell’ the highlights of our visits.”
A plethora of information, including proposed plans, expansion of the farmer’s market, how the venue would be used, and more is available at planourpark.com! (You can also call Harrisonburg Downtown Renaissance at 540-432-8922 or visit their website.)
