Project Advisory Committee (PAC) Members

The Project Advisory Committee is comprised of community volunteers representing a range of experience and points of view; they represent the park's future users and the surrounding community. The committee provides guidance to the design team and project staff as the process moves forward. Each committee member brings a unique perspective that must be balanced with a community-wide vision. Hearing from the community and finding that balance is the committee's primary role. The committee includes representatives from local Gateway organizations as well as a cross-section of neighborhood residents.
