 Project updates

​This project will lay out the vision for a three-mile bicycle and pedestrian path that will connect key destinations in the SouthPark activity center. The loop will feature public art, wayfinding, landscaping and plaza areas.

The framework will identify the proposed route of the Cultural Loop, placemaking opportunities within and adjacent to the route, including passive and active open space, pocket park opportunities and opportunities for community gathering, activities and programming.

  • ​To support an evolving mixed-use activity center

  • To improve bicycle and pedestrian access from neighborhoods

  • To increase the quantity and quality of greenspace

  • To support economic vibrancy and strong sense of place

  • To leverage public and private investments

  • To capitalize on strategic partnerships

The project team has aggressively solicited input from residents and businesses in the SouthPark area and surrounding neighborhoods through the following activities:

  • September 27, 2018: SouthPark​ all-day event at Morrison Regional Library

  • April 10, 2018: SouthPark all-day event at Morrison Regional Library

  • January 23, 2018: Public all-day event at Morrison Regional Library

​​​​​​The Community Investment Plan approved by City Council in 2013 calls for voters to consider approval of funding for a number of infrastructure programs. Voters approved bond financing in 2014, 2016 and 2018 and will vote on further bond financing in 2020. For this project, City staff engages the community to determine the details of what will ultimately be built. Once these details are known, the cost of the project is estimated and published.
