SIOUX CITY | The Sioux City Parks and Recreation Department will hold a public meeting Nov. 30 to seek feedback on the development of the Sioux City Riverfront project. 

At the meeting, which will begin 7 p.m. on the fifth floor of City Hall, 405 Sixth St., designers will share an overview of the current Riverfront Master Plan, and community members will have an opportunity to participate in the schematic design process. 

"We want to make sure we give everyone an opportunity to provide input toward the development of such an important part of our community," Parks and Recreation Director Matt Salvatore said in a city news release. 

Sioux City kicked off the design phase for the riverfront development earlier this year. Madison, Wisconsin-based SmithGroup JJR Inc. will complete surveying, schematic design and administration services connected to the planned project at the former site of the Argosy casino.

The city has set a budget of about $12 million for the development project, according to the agreement.

Amenities could include an interactive fountain, sport courts, overlooks, a dog park, a yoga lawn, restrooms, added parking and other amenities. Other suggested features have included a pedestrian bridge and Ferris wheel.

A steering committee is fund-raising for the park and has identified potential grants to help with the project.

The schematic design process is anticipated to be complete by the start of 2018.
