In conjunction with the Park’s centennial celebration, Metro Parks Tacoma held a series of public design charettes for the (3) major sections of the park. Professionals on this team volunteered to lead a team for each charette. We were awarded a contract to develop a conceptual master Plan for the 5-acre waterfront area. The process included site analysis, inventory of existing uses, summary of public charette results, creation of (5) alternative master plans and facilitation of several public meetings. The result was a “preferred alternative” Master Plan with a cost estimate supporting potential future development.
