The Fisher Street Park Relocation project has recently completed the schematic design phase.  The schematic designs are based on comments and discussions from the public engagement prior to Covid and concept plans vetted through community input surveys on during Summer 2020.  Since late 2020, the design consulting team of John A. Edwards (engineering) and JDavis (landscape architecture) has been contracted for the park design process with final design and permitting scheduled into Fall 2021. The current schedule anticipates park construction to begin in late 2021 or early 2022.  The existing Fisher Street Park will remain in place until the new park site is open to the public in 2022.

During the initial public engagement process, the idea of including art into the park design was recommended.  As such, Raleigh Arts, a service unit of the Parks, Recreation and Cultural Resources Department, was brought onto the project to procure an artist exclusively for this project.  Through a series of interviews with the Fisher Park Artist Selection Panel, composed of representatives of the College Park and local arts communities, a finalist was selected.  Jermaine “JP” Powell is a North Carolina-based mixed-media artist and muralist.  The artist will work closely with the design team.  As the project progresses, JP will be engaging with the community to develop a vision for future art elements at Fisher Street Park.  

Please participate in the current Public Art Survey.  See link to survey below.

A schematic design survey was available for public comment in late May 2021 and ended in mid-April 2021.  See below for the survey results.
