TITLE
Thorpe Park Annex Updated Concept
STAFF RECOMMENDED ACTION:
On October 25, 2022, a robust conversation was held with City Council providing detailed direction and feedback bringing forward this updated concept of Thorpe Park Annex for future approval.  
EXECUTIVE SUMMARY:
In summary, City Council provided direction for the Indigenous Community Cultural Center (ICCC) to be the centerpiece of the property with ample natural areas around the ICCC for meditation, teaching, gathering, learning, contemplation, and space for plant and animal relatives including native plantings, garden areas, and an orchard.    

The specific recommendations include:
  • Create a larger area for restoration, open spaces, indigenous gardens, native plantings, a larger orchard around the ICCC, and enhanced ceremonial space
  • An incorporation of interpretive trail system with connection to the ICCC
  • Relocating pickleball courts to not be within the boundaries of Thorpe Park Annex but rather in another location within the regional Thorpe Park
  • Make adjustments to parking based on centerpiece around the ICCC
  • Keep City employee housing with direction and discussion on next steps to continue
INFORMATION:
The updated concept will be provided with the November 15, 2022 final agenda packet.
