An important component of this process will be to engage members of the South Bend community to obtain input on desired future outcomes. There will be a series of four community meetings to discuss our Riverfront Parks & Trails and to gather input from the public.

The first meeting was held Thursday, September 8th, and had nearly 200 participants sharing thoughts about what they like and what they might change as well as what is missing from the riverfront parks and trails. The meeting began with a presentation that gave an overview of how riverfronts can be transformed to benefit the community followed by looking at our process. Following the presentation attendees were asked to visit a series of stations and provide input about the current condition and future needs of the parks and trails.

If you were unable to attend the meeting, you may view a recording of the presentation and the PowerPoint presentation.

Check back for additional information, which will be shared here as the process continues to move forward.
