Here's What's Up With Police Cove
The Barrington committee designing a park in 'police cove' meets Monday, Feb. 25, to continue discussions about public art, food trucks and re-naming the park.
Barrington's Police Cove Park Committee meets Monday, Feb. 25, for the first time since last fall.
The meeting will take place in the Council Chamber in Town Hall. It starts at 7 pm.
The agenda includes three items of unfinished business, according to Town Planner Phil Hervey:
- Public Art Budget and Process
- RFP/Guidelines for Food Trucks/Vendors
- Re-naming the Park
The committee envisions utilizing the park next to the Barrington Bridge just north of County Road as a site for shows, exhibitions and possibiy built-in art works.
The committee has already built into the park a location for food trucks and vendors to set up shop; it still must determine the interest with a request for proposal (RFP) to be sent out, and guidelines to handle the trucks.
There is interest in a contest to re-name the park, which will be constructed on the site that has been called "police cove" for decades because it housed the former Barrington police station.
