Public invited to Fort Kearny design charrette open house on Nov. 8

LINCOLN, Neb. – The Nebraska Game and Parks Commission will host an open house Nov. 8 about possible future development at Fort Kearny State Historical Park and State Recreation Area.

The open house will take place in Kearney from 5-6:30 p.m. at the Younes Conference Center in the Diamond Room No. 7, 416 Talmadge St.

The open house concludes a two-day design charrette held in Kearney. A design charrette is a planning session where citizens and stakeholders collaborate on the vision of a development project. The open house will allow the public to review the suggestions, ideas, drawings and other plans developed during the charrette, as well as to ask questions and provide additional input.

Following the open house, the design team will refine the information and drawings with the input received from the public and produce a final document that can be used in future planning and potential development at Fort Kearny. There is no formal presentation during the open house, so public is welcome to attend any time from 5-6:30 p.m.

For more information, contact Game and Parks’ Michelle Stryker at michelle.stryker@nebraska.gov or 402-471-5425.
