The Campbell City Council has approved funding for park renovations. The City of Campbell Public Works Department is in the planning stage of updating the play structures at Jack Fischer Park, with construction anticipated to be complete by summer 2017. There are two play structures the City is planning to replace, the tot-lot (2-5 yrs) and the school age (5-12 yrs). Replacement facilities must fit within the existing play area footprints subject to current safety standards. Each structure has multiple play components and the City has some flexibility in how to configure future structures.
The City has just concluded conducting a three week public outreach program to solicit input from park users. The outreach program had both a social media and personal contact components. Results of the outreach can be found here (http://www.cityofcampbell.com/683/Envision-Campbell-Forum) under the “Closed Topics” tab. From the public outreach, public works has been able to compile a comprehensive representation of Jack Fischer Park’s usage and as well as what users would like to see in a new park. Public Works is preparing conceptual designs that will be presented to the Parks and Recreation Commission on November 2, 2016.
