   Project Timeline: 

2011

  • In the fall of 2011, City Council authorized the City to update the City's Long Range Land Use Plan and Massillon Road Corridor Plan. A Steering Committee was formed and they spent the last three months of 2011 and the early part of 2012 studying the Massillon Road Corridor from both a transportation and land use prospective. The Steering Committee identified this area as an ideal location for a community park.

2012 

  • The City began to acquire land near the Central Administration Building in the fall of 2012 to provide the necessary space to create a community park. 

2013

  • In 2013, an initial concept plan was prepared to help drive the conversation about creating this space. In the fall of 2013, a Central Park Steering Committee was formed and met to work with the project's design firm, OHM Advisors.

2014

  • During the Mayor's State of the City Address in January 2014, he presented plans for Central Park.  Public input was gathered via informational meetings and a community survey in the spring of 2014.
