The public is invited to attend a workshop on Tuesday, March 25, to help guide the future of Meadowbrook Park.

Located within Golden Hills and operated by the Tehachapi Valley Recreation and Parks District, the park is in need of rehabilitation, most agree, and the workshop is the next step in development of a conceptual site plan for the park.

According to Gayle Stewart, president of the Board of Directors of the recreation and parks district, capital funds are available for the park and the workshop will allow the public to have input into what should happen to improve the park.

Quad Knopf, the Visalia-based engineering firm that is working with the district to develp the master plan will bring high tech input devices to allow those who attend the workshop to have "instant input" into the process.

Decisions including location of the dog park, playing fields, picnic areas and what other amenities might be developed are among topics to be explored at the workshop.

In a meeting Wednesday, March 5, the Lands and Parks Committee of the Golden Hills Community Services District decided to postpone discussion about alternate locations for the dog park until after the site plan for Meadowbrook is developed.

Stewart said she knows that some local residents are frustrated that it has taken so long to bring improvements to Meadowbrook. The planned work on the park will follow direction from the district's own master plan that was approved in September 2013.

Like Philip Marx Central Park and West Park -- both within the boundaries of the City of Tehachapi -- 8-acre Meadowbrook is classified as a community park within the district's master plan. The adjacent 1-acre dog park is also described in the plan.

The Meadowbrook workshop will begin at 6 p.m. on Tuesday, March 25. It will be held at the Golden Hills CSD office, 21415 Reeves St.
