January Town Hall Was A Success

Crestwood hosted an Elected Officials Town Hall meeting at the Community Center on January 18. All eight Aldermen and I were in attendance, providing residents with a unique opportunity to engage in meaningful conversations about Crestwood issues and share their views one-on-one with their elected officials. Various tables were set up, each focusing on different themes, including Crestwood Goals and Values, updates on city projects, and preferences on communication methods.

Discussions regarding Proposition A emerged as a major discussion point at the event, and due to its significance, we are hosting three additional town halls in March. These events are designed to provide detailed information specifically about Proposition A and offer residents additional opportunities to ask questions.

Resident engagement on these park improvements dates back to 2021 and 2022, with the Parks Master Plan initiative. Extensive surveys, open house events, and interactions with residents shaped our understanding of community needs. The results indicated a desire for a better experience at the community center, directing the goals outlined in Proposition A.

Proposition A encompasses key priorities expressed in the Parks Master Plan, such as the Whitecliff loop trail, a pedestrian bridge connecting the Lodge Pole neighborhood, a natural playscape area, and the replacement of the Crestwood Park playground—a hub of community activity.

We are excited about the potential upgrades to our parks, but more importantly, we are excited about how this could improve our community. The underlying goal of this effort is to create a place for gathering, a place for fitness, a place for learning, A Place For All of Us. You can learn more, and submit questions, by visiting our dedicated page for Prop A at cityofcrestwood.org/PropA.

The success of the January Town Hall demonstrates the strength of community engagement. We encourage all residents to participate in the upcoming town halls in March. Your involvement is crucial as we collectively work towards building a brighter and more vibrant Crestwood. Thank you for being an integral part of our thriving community!
