WHEELING, W.Va. –
The City of Wheeling, through its Parks and Strategic Planning Department, will hold a public meeting to discuss the development of the Wheeling Island Gateway Park.
The park will be located south of the Wheeling Suspension Bridge on about an acre of property.
GAI Consultants has been selected to develop the proposed master plan. In January, the firm responded to a request for qualifications that stated the goal of developing “a great vision that weaves the threads of history and contemporary community life together into a beautiful, safe, accessible, and sustainable park.”
The City and GAI are seeking community input to help plan and design the new park. Interested citizens are encouraged to attend this meeting.
The meeting is set for Tuesday, March 20 at 5:00 p.m. at the House of the Carpenter on Wheeling Island.
If you cannot make it to the meeting, check out the link on the Wheeling, WV City Office Facebook page to take part in a survey about the park.
