Renaming 'Police Cove', Food Truck Rules on Park Committee Table
The Barrington committee designing a new park at 'police cove' meets tonight in Town Hall with some unfinished business.
The ad hoc committee that has designed a new park for Police Cove in Barrington meets tonight, Feb. 25, in Town Hall.
The group's first meeting since last fall will take place in the Council Chamber. 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
- Renaming the Park
The committee envisions utilizing the future park as a site for shows, exhibitions and built-in art works.
The committee has already built into the design for the park a location for food trucks and vendors to set up shop. But it still must determine the interest with a request for proposal (RFP) to be sent out to potential vendors, and guidelines to handle any food trucks.
The committee also is leaning toward renaming the park that will be constructed on the site that has been called "police cove" for decades because it housed the former Barrington police station. A contest to generate ideas for names has been discussed.
