Public workshop on the future of Papago Park

On Monday, Discover Papago Park, a joint project of the Salt River-Pima Indian Community and the Cities of Tempe, Phoenix and Scottsdale will hold two sessions of the same workshop on the future of Papago Park (located in Tempe and Phoenix and bordering on Scottsdale).

Those sessions will be held:

10 a.m. to 12 p.m.
Desert Botancial Garden
Dorrance Hall
1201 N. Galvin Parkway


6 to 8 p.m.
North Tempe Multi-Generational Center
1555 N. Bridalwreath Street
(McKellips Road and Scottsdale Road)

The goal of the project is to fashion "a vision and series of recommendations to guide the future of Papago Park as a premier regional park serving Phoenix, Tempe, Scottsdale and the larger region." The end product of the process will be the Papago Park Master Plan.

I don't have much more on this (I'll try to attend the evening session), but given that developers have had their eyes on the Park for years, so this process should be watched closely to ensure that the Park stays a public park.
