The Riverfront Park Design Steering Committee is a temporary ad hoc committee consisting of three Park Board members (the Park Board President and Riverfront Park Committee Chair and a third member appointed at large by the Park Board President), a previous member of the Design Review Commission and other citizen, City staff and City Council appointees. The Steering Committee is supported by Riverfront Park Redevelopment staff. The committee uses a consensus-based decision making process when making recommendations to the Park Board.
The Riverfront Park Design Steering Committee recommendations will include consultant selection and whether the overall look and feel of what is being proposed maximizes the vision set forth in the Riverfront Park Master Plan. This includes the following attractions, infrastructure and amenities:
U.S. Pavilion Event Center including related buildings
Plazas & Promenades (related Landscape including Canada Island)
Looff Carrousel/Exhibit Design
Recreational Rink & Skyride Facility
All Playgrounds, Public Art, and Parking Lots
In addition, the Design Steering Committee will review recommendations from the Family Use, Arts and Tribal committees before they are submitted to the Park Board.
