On July 23, 2019, Christiansburg Town Council voted to enter into an agreement with Faulconer Construction Company for the design of a park on the former Truman Wilson Property off Peppers Ferry Road. On September 9, 2019, the Town held an open house information session on the park to provide an update to residents about where we are in the process of designing the proposed park and to collect feedback from residents so that those comments can be taken into consideration as the design process moves forward.
The information displayed during the meeting can be found at the links below.
The design is expected to be finalized and approved in Spring 2020. If Town Council approves the design and decides to move forward with the project, construction of the park could begin in Summer 2020.
The Connector Road is a separate project from the proposed park and is dependent on future funding. A portion of the road is designed to run through the park. The Connector Road would provide another north-south thoroughfare for the Town by ultimately connecting Peppers Ferry Road (through the park) to North Franklin Street (near the Food Lion Shopping Center/Waffle House). The project would be phased, and a map of the first phases is linked below, which displays the portion through the park and from Peppers Ferry Road to Cambria Street.
The Town of Christiansburg initially received an unsolicited design proposal from Branch. After advertising for competing proposals, the Town received a revised proposal from Branch, as well as a proposal from EC Pace Company and Faulconer Construction Company. All three proposals are linked below.
Documents supporting the conceptual design proposal solicitation can be viewed here.
Christiansburg Town Council held a joint work session with the Parks & Recreation Advisory Commission on Jan. 17, 2017, to discuss the business plan for the proposed park. (Address: 300 Peppers Ferry Road NW)
