The purpose and goals of the project are to develop a cohesive Cultural Interpretive Plan for the park as recommended in the Honoring The Past section of the 2014 Revised Master Plan for John Chavis Memorial Park. This plan will build off the recommendations and work completed in previous efforts to tell the story. All documents related to the 2014 Revised Master Plan, South Park Heritage Walk Report, Historic Designation Report, SPERNA Knowledge Maps and John Chavis Brochure, Public Art efforts, and independent staff research.
The process will design, fabricate, and install an interpretive element based on the recommendations of the plan. Current funding allows for a phased approach beginning with the development of a Cultural Heritage Interpretive Plan and first phase exhibit installation, which must be completed in time for an early summer 2021 ribbon-cutting ceremony. A site has been pre-selected for the first phase exhibit to be installed outside of the newly renovated historic Carousel House.
