Now is the time to discus the redesign of Coffey Park. What are some changes we would like to see that would make this a better park?
~Move the two playgrounds closer together/redesign playgrounds
~More trash cans
~Better shaded picnic areas

Maybe a simple low wall inset with tiles painted by each neighbor who lost a home. One for each address? Addresses with no known contact could get a simple address number and street hand-painted on?

Interesting idea Sasha. I saw something similar at a park in Redding. https://www.gLinkoogle.com/maps/uv?hl=en&pb=!1s0x54d2eb6b3b555fe5%3A0xce5ed1cc94bd148!2m22!2m2!1i80!2i80!3m1!2i20!16m16!1b1!2m2!1m1!1e1!2m2!1m1!1e3!2m2!1m1!1e5!2m2!1m1!1e4!2m2!1m1!1e6!3m1!7e115!4shttp%3A%2F%2Fwww.visitredding.com%2Ftraildetails.php%3Fid%3D356%26s%3D10%26sort%3D!5sRedding%20Enterprise%20Park%20-%20Google%20Search&imagekey=!1e10!2sAF1QipPyl8MPGwsIqqykLyzsBPls4h8STV3QSRkSHeVa&sa=X&ved=0ahUKEwjQgtuoorjZAhUCwYMKHbwjBjoQoioIjQEwCg

Yes, I like that a lot too! Another thought, you know how the image of Coffey Park on the back of the shirts Pamela made depicts a heart shape? What about a poured concrete slab in this shape with tiles inlaid for each “house” that shows in red and the white for homes still standing? A slab might less likely be vandalized, where walls often get tagged. Just a thought. Having some sort of memorial in the park seems appropriate. 🙂

I can attest that we do not want bathrooms. Bathrooms attract unsavory characters. Needles are left in bathrooms and even heroin balloons hidden in the light fixtures. As attractive as it would be to have them for families, you wouldn’t want your children using them because of the needles left behind.
I love the idea of something dedicated to the fire victims, as well as those with homes still standing.
