Expo Buffer Zone Will Become a Park

It's official! The community has spoken and the 'buffer zone' between the future Expo maintenance facility and surrounding neighborhood will become a park. The recommendation to City Council for use of the space to create a new park followed a series of community workshops held in 2011 regarding use of the site and other good neighbor agreements with Expo. Community members expressed interest in bringing nature back to this area through landscaping with trees and native plants. The next step will be finding a partner to design the landscape for the buffer park project.
