Don’t forget: Last Bell Park input meeting Thursday.

Don’t forget the final input meeting for residents interested in the proposed Bell Memorial Park expansion project will be held tomorrow, Thursday, June 27.

This meeting will be held at 7 p.m. at Milton’s City Hall, 13000 Deerfield Parkway Suite 107 (click here for directions) and moderated by the city’s plan partner, Foresite Group.

In addition to the latest iterations of park design, staff will also present concepts in advanced glare and spill-lighting technology to improve efficiency, reduce power consumption and reduce light pollution.

As part of this expansion process, staff has contacted representatives from 11 stakeholder groups representing sports leagues, trails enthusiasts, equestrians, local neighborhoods and more to conduct focused research.

Milton paid $1.287 million for the land from the city’s parks acquisition budget after a unanimous City Council vote in September of last year. City Council later approved Foresite Group’s bid of $54,000 for Bell Memorial Park master plan design and construction services March 18.
