City Council was recently presented with preliminary design plans from the private Plan Our Park design team, on conceptual ideas for a park in downtown Harrisonburg. The park would be located in the area of the existing Municipal Building, Farmers Market, and future City Hall. Plan Our Park representatives have requested the city enter into a public-private partnership to make these plans a reality. Currently, these efforts remain a private feasibility and design project, with no city funding or final approval by City Council.
