Community for the Commons

Community for the Commons has created a master plan to refresh the Excelsior Commons park. The first project is the bandshell. Using feedback from the community, the nonprofit worked with a design team to come up with a plan. Now, the group is close to having a draft to share with the public and plans an online opportunity for public engagement sometime in August.

Community for the Commons, along with residents, created a master plan to refresh the Excelsior Commons park, according to Eric Snyder, chair of the Community for the Commons board. The plan was broken into phases and the bandshell was decided to be the first project.

The nonprofit received feedback from the community on what the bandshell should look like. People came to a consensus that a new structure should be about the same size as the current structure, Snyder said. The big enhancement will be making it a multipurpose structure that can be used for many things throughout the year.
