March 31 Newark Riverfront Parks meeting

On March 31, 2009, over 70 people attended the second public meeting about the planning and design of Newark Riverfront Parks. The project team, including the City of Newark Division of Planning & Community Development, the Trust for Public Land, and Lee Weintraub Landscape Architect, presented their first draft design ideas for the park.


Then, participants worked in groups to generate questions and ideas for park access, security, programming, and design. The notes from these groups are included in the PDF of the public presentation below.
