Survey results for Wedge Preserve Park are in, and the city commission is ready to discuss the findings.

The city commission will discuss resident input and final concept plans at their Wednesday, June 21 workshop with CPH Inc., a professional design services firm, starting at 6 p.m.

The commission voted to approve CPH’s services last November. In March, CPH presented two conceptual plans, Concept A and Concept B, to the parks and recreation board, and in April, they hosted a resident input forum.

That forum followed the commission’s vote on three items related to zoning and the city’s land use designation for Wedge Preserve Park.

In May, a survey was available for residents to provide input on the Wedge Preserve Park plans. Both plans of them have two baseball fields, a multi-use field, four basketball courts, eight pickleball courts, two tennis courts, a playground, nature trails, a boardwalk, a splash pad, and a ninja course.

The plans differed in their overall layout.

Out of the 615 people who responded to the survey, 332 (53.98%) preferred Concept B, while 283 (46.02%) preferred Concept A, according to the survey results.

Respondents expressed the greatest desire for features such as boardwalks, a nature area, and a kids’ town, a miniature, interactive citylike area for children to play in.

About 94 percent of respondents indicated they would use the walking trail, while almost 98 percent stated they would attend a festival, art show, or community event at the park.

Respondents, however, did suggest some improvements, including the addition of a running track, a dog park, teen activities, shaded areas, an outdoor roller rink, roadway expansion, traffic control, and a zipline or observation tower in the preserve.
