West Ridge Park Building & Site Planning Update

May 11, 2023

An open house was held on May 6, 2023 to discuss the West Ridge Park Building and Site Preliminary Planning Efforts. The preliminary planning study is a direct response to recommendations from the Green Print Master Plan. The study focused on understanding need and the site to develop an approach to address the West Ridge Center. The District welcomes comments to guide future steps. This is the first of many opportunities to collaborate on the project to redevelop the West Ridge Center and Park.

The boards presented at the open house are posted below.

The recommendation based on the preliminary planning takes advantage of the existing parking and sets the building further south on the property. The map on the right highlights the development zones; the yellow box represents the general area proposed for the new building. The actual size and location of the new building will be determined through the planning process. The map on the right illustrates the proposed phased approach. The Park District would be able to continue operations at the West Ridge Center during construction. Once the new building was open, the existing building would be demolished. Improvements to the athletic fields would be addressed in future phases.
