Bartow residents on Tuesday got a final chance to comment on a downtown redevelopment plan that includes a new park called Bartow Commons before it goes to the Community Redevelopment Agency for final OK. Yet only a half dozen residents and business owners took advantage at the meeting hosted by the Central Florida Regional Planning Council, the agency that developed the plan for the CRA.

The most visible part of the plan calls for the development of a multi-use park between First and Second Streets adjacent to the Old Cigar Factory. Bartow Commons would feature shaded walkways, picnic tables, a possible splash park, a children’s playground, a dog park and access to the old factory and other development which the park is expected to foster, said planners.
