The Richmond community is being asked to help design two new features being planned for Unity Park: a senior garden that is universally accessible and also an e-bike lending library.

Urban Tilth and Rich City Rides are hosting a “Charrette Design Session” Sat., July 29 at 3 p.m. at Unity Park, located at 1605 Ohio Ave. in Richmond. 

In-person attendance at the workshops is highly recommended by the organizers so that community members glean the best info from it, however online surveys—i.e., the E-Bike Lending Library Survey and the Universally Accessible & Senior Garden Survey—are also available for the projects.

“We will use the input from the workshop and the surveys to determine the overall design of the garden and E-Bike Lending Library,” said organizers in the Richmond City Manager’s Report. Spanish translation, snacks and refreshments will be provided.
