The second public park workshop to design Seed Park was held on August 14 at the Lopez Ridge Rec Center. Thank you to the more than 50 people who attended to share their thoughts on the two concepts!
Allegra Parisi, Development Manager for 3Roots, welcomed the participants and provided an introduction to the project. Larry Ryan of RJM Design Group reviewed the process for the evening’s activities and presented background information including project information, current zoning, site analysis, opportunities and constraints, and an overview of Workshop 1.

Larry then presented two draft concepts for Seed Park. The two concepts were based on the suggestions collected at the first park Workshop). The feedback we received included the following:
Incorporate a storage area for goals
Concern over distance of maintenance shed
More little league fields
Eliminate informal garden area
Add more shade
Include a centralized Rec Center
Following a presentation of each of the park concepts, Workshop attendees were given the opportunity to vote on their favorite. Concept #1 received 28 votes, while Concept #2 received 18 votes.
Using this feedback, the team will refine the plans and present an updated and consolidated version at the next Mira Mesa Parks and Rec Council Meeting on September 11.
