The City of Eureka holds public input meetings about Cooper Gulch park

EUREKA, Calif. (KIEM)- The City of Eureka held a meeting today at Cooper Gulch Park for public input on how to improve the park.

More than 20 community members gathered at the park to give their suggestions and feedback.

The event gave the community an opportunity to engage with city officials and other community members to discuss issues and solutions to implement to make the park better.

City of Eureka’s Program Coordinator Robin Praszker says the communities input matters.

“Meeting on site is really great because we are in the park, we’re in the middle of it. We can talk about how we feel, how we think it could be improved,” said Praszker. “We had a lot of neighbors show up today and nobody knows our public spaces better than the people who actually use them. So, we want those experiences, those attitudes, those feelings to come through throughout this process.”

Two more meetings are going to be held this month via zoom on Thursday, October 22nd and Tuesday, October 27th.
