Refined Plan to be Presented

Thank you for your interest in the Hidden Valley Regional Park Master Plan update!  This message is to inform you about the second public meeting as part of the plan development process.  From December – February, we’ve been collecting community feedback on three draft conceptual plans through an in-person community workshop, online community survey, on-site meetings, emails, and phone conversations.  A refined conceptual plan is in development and will be presented at the meeting.

The second meeting will be held virtually, in a webinar format:

When:  Wednesday, March 2nd from 5:30 pm – 7:30 pm

Where:  Online, via Zoom (see meeting information below)

Also, we’d be grateful if you would help spread the word about this meeting to anyone in your communities or networks who may be interested in attending.
