ROGERS, AR— Ross Barney Architects and City Staff will be holding a public meeting to present the results from the engagement process and share the new park design for Downtown Rogers. The meeting will be held at the 1907,101 E. Walnut, at 4:30 P.M. and is expected to last 30 minutes.

Ross Barney Architects of Chicago, IL, was selected as the design firm for the project in early 2018 and has been gathering feedback from the community throughout the year. The firm collected hundreds of responses from surveys and public engagement sessions and took those responses as a critical component in the design process. 

“This is truly the community’s design.” said Jim White, Director of Parks and Recreation. “I’m so excited for everyone to see how Ross Barney has taken the wants and needs of our citizens and translated it into an amazingly unique space for Rogers.” White continued. 

The redesign was made possible by a grant from the Walton Family Foundation’s Northwest Arkansas Design Excellence Program. The program seeks to elevate the  quality of design in Northwest Arkansas by providing financial support to public and nonprofit entities to develop public buildings and spaces  that preserve a sense of place and promote the region. Rogers was awarded the grant in late 2017.
