This project provides for the acquisition of 1.77-acres in Ashland for the development of a new local park.
This is one of three adjoining acquisitions for the Ashland area. The acquisition anticipates extending the Mateo St Park to East 14th Street, creating a contiguous, through-block park for the Ashland neighborhood. This future park will also front the new Ashland community center, part of the Madrone Terrace housing project by RCD.
The acquisition was completed in early 2021 and a community outreach process was held in 2021-2022 to develop a conceptual site plan for the site. Additionally, a grant application to the Land and Weter Conservation Fund program was submitted in early 2022 to seek funds for the construction of the new park. HARd is awaiting notification of the status of the grant submission later in 2022.
Demolition of existing structures was completed in April 2022.
