Disbrow Park’s Future – What Do You Think?

Rye is deep in Disbrow Park planning. What do you think? Post your comments below.

Disbrow Park

The city is considering the future of the 47 acre park. Some of the most frequently discussed topics are:

  • Park Costs
  • Relocating DPW
  • Number of tennis courts (3 vs. 4)
  • Dog park location
  • Additional landscape buffering for neighbors
  • Roadway Geometry

The city reports $6.7 – 10.8 million in non-deferrable costs and capital improvements – mostly related to the Department of Public Works facilities in the park. Beyond that the cost options outlined in the current report range from $12.8 to $39.9 million dollars for various improvements.

Read the report.

The next substantive discussion on the park's future will likely be the July 12th city council meeting.

Tell us what you think.

  1. It’s great that creative thought is being given to address long-term DPW capital needs as well as upgrading Rye recreational facilities. But the idea of spending $33 to 39 million to relocate DPW to the last chunk of “green space” in Rye seems extravagant.

    I seem to remember significant capital needs for the police department. And there’s also the [cyclical] discussion about down town parking garage.

    Before we’re asked to vote on bond questions, prioritization across the full list of capital spending is needed instead of picking out one or two items that seem most exciting. No one should go on a shopping spree for shiny, new infrastructure spending. Our governor already has that pastime well occupied.
