Current Project Status

Raleigh Parks is currently conducting a Situation Assessment for John Chavis Memorial Park. A Situation Assessment is an analysis of the local context around a project, to help staff determine the best way to effectively engage the community in a collaborative process. Situation Assessments are used as an opportunity to identify key stakeholders and any issues or opportunities that are important to the community that will be affected by the planning process. Situation Assessments can be an opportunity to study the historical and cultural context of a particular project or community and to proactively identify and address any issues that may be contentious during the planning process. 


The Situation Assessment also identifies the Community Advisory Group (CAG), which is a membership-specific committee that provides oversight of the project planning process and ensures that decisions include a broad representation of the community and stakeholders impacted by the project. CAG members help facilitate information sharing between the community and planning staff.


Raleigh Parks will be presenting the Situation Assessment and CAG member recommendations to the Parks, Recreation and Greenway Advisory Board in October 2023. Official project kick-off is planned for late Fall 2023.
