On Tuesday, April 24, 6 p.m. at Pringle Community Hall, the City will hold the third of three community meetings on the Riverfront Park Master Plan update. After more than 1,600 responses to two community-wide surveys, two community meetings, and three stakeholder advisory meetings, the City will present the preferred concept for the park.

The meeting was originally planned for March 22 but was rescheduled to allow the planning team to coordinate the preferred design concept with the ongoing Downtown Salem Streetscape Design and the proposed Gerry Frank Rotary Amphitheater stage and cover

Once approved by the City Council, the updated park master plan will provide a comprehensive vision for Riverfront Park within the context of its location, resources, and input from the community. The master plan will guide future park improvements, enhancements, rehabilitation projects, and grant applications.
