The Domes Task Force is currently evaluating long-term options for the future of the Mitchell Park Domes. Working with outside consultants, the Task Force has developed eight options and are seeking public comment until Monday, July 9. To comment, visit MitchellDomes.org and click “Survey” in the upper right-hand corner, and then click “Take Survey” again in the lower left-hand corner. We suggest you pick option 4, 5A or 5B from the drop-down “Your Preferred Options” menu, and include the following comment:
I support proposals that do not demolish one or more of the Domes, but instead reinvest in the Domes and fully realize the extraordinary asset they could become. New and expanded uses that ensure the Domes will remain relevant to new generations of residents should be compatible with the core mission of the conservatory and protect the horticultural collection. The theme for any type of destination attraction (Eco Dome, Adventure Dome, or other) should be driven by community members, following a transparent and open public input process. I hope the Task Force will fully explore all options that retain and reinvest in the three existing Domes. I do not support Options 6a or 6b, which would require demolition of one of the Domes.
