Register by Dec. 22 School starts Jan. 8 In November, 2017, APRC officially announced the launch of the Lithia Park Master Plan. This master plan will guide the management of the resources, facilities and visitor experiences over the next 100 years, ensuring that Lithia Park continues to shine as Ashland’s jewel. APRC’s selected team of consultants will be led by the Portland office of MIG, Inc. and include local landscape architect KenCairn Associates, among other team members, who will be evaluating the condition of Lithia Park currently, setting a foundation for the master plan and the future of Lithia Park. Project Manager Laurie Matthews, a specialist in historic public parks, noted, “Lithia Park’s spirit of place is palpable and evident to anyone who walks through or sits under its canopy of trees alongside the banks of Ashland Creek. Our team is honored to be helping the community envision what the next 100 years will look like. To that end, we are not focused on proposing major new changes but enhancing what resonates and changing things that will benefit the character and health of the park.” If you would like to share your thoughts on the Lithia Park Master Plan, and are unable to attend a public meeting, please email ParksInfo@ashland.or.us or call 541.488.5340.
