How residents have been involved?
The Robbins Community provided the vision for Robbins Park through several pre-pandemic meetings and workshops. Several members of the community helped provide assistance throughout the planning process in engaging local stakeholders as a part of the steering committee. The project team held a Steering Committee workshop on April 16th, 2018, stakeholder interviews in the Fall of 2018, and a visioning workshop on May 18th, 2019. Additionally, the project team continue to collect the public’s input during community events such as the regularly held Senior Brunch, the Village’s Juneteenth Celebration and Carnival and the Minority Entrepreneurship Interactive Solution Symposium (MEISS) at the Robbins Community Center.
