Media Advisory - Photo Opportunity - Mayor Buckhorn, Design Team to Unveil Master Concept Plan for Julian B. Lane Riverfront Park - Morning press conference for media with community open house to follow in the evening

03/18/15

PRESS CONFERENCE:

Mayor Bob Buckhorn and members of the design team, led by Denver-based firm Civitas, Inc., will unveil the Master Concept Plan for Julian B. Lane Riverfront Park. The Master Concept Plan is the product of community planning sessions and briefings with hundreds of residents and area business owners to create a collective vision for the nearly 25-acre park.

In addition to reshaping the park space, the design team studied how to improve access to the park from both N. Boulevard and Laurel St., with potential realignment of Laurel St. to run more parallel to I-275, adding additional acreage to the park space.

Julian B. Lane Riverfront Park was identified in the InVision Tampa Center City Plan as well as the subsequent West River Master Plan as a public space with untapped potential.
