The purpose of the meeting is to provide residents the opportunity to learn about upcoming improvements that are being funded and constructed by Buchanan Partners who are developers for the Harris Teeter Development project.

The featured park improvements include realignment and expansion of the existing dog park, new dog park site furnishings, tree plantings, and a new park access from Fairfax St.
