Community members will soon have a chance to see conceptual drawings of what Memorial Park could look like after it is turned into a flood detention basin in San Anselmo.
The project is part of efforts to avoid another “100-year” flood similar to what drowned the area twice in 30 years.
Creating the catch basin will involve lowering the field at Memorial Park and building berms around the edges, so the park – which would continue to consist of athletic fields and open space – could be filled with water to prevent flooding.
San Rafael-based landscape firm Abey Arnold Associates will present conceptual images of the basin a meeting Monday, Dec. 3, at 7 p.m. in the San Anselmo Town Hall Council Chambers, at 525 San Anselmo Avenue.
Town staff wants to hear community feedback and concerns regarding the images and entire project, which town officials are referring to as the “Memorial Park Dual-Use Facility.”
