Mayor Melvin Carter attended and discussed the following topics: Mayor’s vision for downtown and budget recommendation, Homelessness, The Downtown Alliance, and Pedro Park.

The board voted to adopt a resolution in support of Council Member Noecker’s proposal for Pedro Park (see the alternative proposal ) that was recommended by the CRC Public Realm Committee on Tuesday, Oct. 16. The proposal is an alternative to the Mayor’s Pedro Park Proposal. Here is the resolution:

Whereas, the Capitol River Council has consistently supported the intent of the Comprehensive Plan to create a full block park in the Fitzgerald Park Neighborhood; and

Whereas, the generous gift of the Pedro property and the availability of a publicly owned building makes a .85-acre park possible; and

Whereas an economically and racially diverse neighborhood which continues to grow is served by this park; and

Therefore, be it resolved that the CRC supports the plan proposed by Councilwoman Rebecca Noecker to demolish the Public Safety Annex creating a simple green space for active play and recreation, and opposes the plan to sell the Annex in order to create a more formally hardscaped pocket park to border an office building.
