Proposed Balfour Street Park design survey now online

The Ardenwald-Johnson Creek Neighborhood Association is seeking public comment about the proposed community park on SE Balfour Street in Milwaukie.

The draft concept plan is just to help people give an idea of some of the features the park may have, but it is also helps start a fundraising process for the park’s master plan.

The online survey for public feedback on the proposed Balfour Street Park features and amenities is available at

Supporting documents with concept plan and image board are listed in the Documents section on the Balfour Street Park page.

Survey is open for an indefinite time at this time.

Your input will help the Neighborhood Association include safety and accessibility improvements included in the NDA’s Walk Safely Milwaukie Report to the City of Milwaukie that is due on Feb. 15, 2011.

Residents from other Milwaukie Neighborhood Associations and Ardenwald-JC residents in the Portland city limits are encouraged to  fill out the questionnaire.

WSMP projects (if approved) can only be implemented within the Milwaukie city limits.
