Zimmerman Park Redevelopment Plan and Public Meetings
The Town Council recently approved a master concept plan for the redevelopment of Zimmerman Park. The Council believes this plan responds to what residents have asked for and is realistic, considering the significant utility infrastructure underneath the park that cannot be disturbed or built upon. The plan includes improved drainage, a small play area, exercise equipment, a bocce ball court, picnic tables, and a lawn area with a fence that can be fully connected as a complete oval when, on an occasional basis, the grounds will be used as a dog exercise area. Residents may review the following documents related to this project:

The Town will hold two “Walkinars” in Zimmerman Park for Town residents to understand and discuss the extent and location of the proposed improvements. These in-person “Walkinars” will take place on Saturday, November 13 at 9:30 a.m. and Saturday, December 4 at 1 p.m. If you would like to attend one or both events, please RSVP to firstname.lastname@example.org [mailto:email@example.com] .
In addition, the Town will hold a public forum on November 29 at 6 p.m. by Zoom video conference to answer residents’ questions and receive resident feedback about the planned improvements. Instructions to join this meeting are below. If you are unable to attend the forum, you may submit comments on the plan to firstname.lastname@example.org [mailto:email@example.com] . Following these public meetings, the Council intends to hold a public hearing at its December 8 meeting before making a final decision about proceeding with the redevelopment plan.
