New Mitchell Park Buildings Are A Misfit

Uploaded: Oct 10, 2013

I am sorry to say that these new buildings are a complete mis-fit with the neighborhood and the rest of Mitchell Park.

As a member of the Parks Commission, I had numerous presentations about the design, and got to tour the work in progress a couple of times.

I have no doubts that the experience for people in the new library and community center will be a significant improvement over what was there before.

After driving by the work in process and actually walking through it, I am of the opinion we got the right idea on the inside, without regard to the outside.
