YOUR input wanted - Mud Island River Park land use study

If Mud Island River Park were to be redeveloped, what changes would be most important to you? What improvements would you like to see?

Funded by $200,000 from the Corps of Engineers, $100,000 from the Hyde Fdn., $75,000 from the City, and $25,000 from Memphis Tomorrow, the RDC has hired Looney, Ricks, Kiss Architects and The Consilience Group to find the answers and design a land use plan based on your input.

Four public meetings are scheduled. For times and locations click here.

If you are unable to attend one of the meetings, you can still take part in an online survey. Click here to answer the questions and submit your comments.

“Public input is the foundation of this study,” said Traci Sampson, principal of The Consilience Group. “We want to be sure whatever happens at the park is meeting the needs of the community.”

The land use study is expected to take 9 - 10 months.
