Public invited to participate in Carmody Park’s first master plan
The City of Lakewood will host a public meeting to gather input for Carmody Park’s master plan from 6-7 p.m. on Thursday, Sept. 12 at Carmody Middle School, 2050 S. Kipling St.
This first meeting will focus on gathering the opinions of the public and user groups about the overall site, circulation, parking, utility and programming needs. Subsequent meetings will include the review of master plan alternatives and the presentation of the preferred master plan to guide future improvements. The master plan is due to be completed by January 2014.
Carmody Park, owned by the City of Lakewood, encompasses approximately 34 acres that was originally developed by Foothills Parks and Recreation District in the 1970s. The City took ownership of the site and facilities in 2000 and completed recreation center modifications in 2002. The City deconstructed the adjacent racquetball center in 2011. Currently, the site includes the Carmody Recreation Center (51,355 square feet), four soccer fields, a basketball court, a playground, 232 parking spaces and a 1,300-square-foot reservable picnic pavilion. The City has retained the services of Mundis Bishop to assist with developing the master plan.
Members of the public can contact the Department of Community Resources at 303-987-7800 or email CarmodyPark@Lakewood.org with any questions or comments. For more information, please contact Allison Scheck at 303-987-7872 or allsch@Lakewood.org.
