MetraPark officials are holding community engagement meetings to gather feedback on what county residents want to see included in the the MetraPark master plan.
MetraPark currently is in the midst of a redesign, with a new draft master plan being created to reimagine what the county's event and entertainment venue could be. A significant part of that process involves seeking various forms of feedback from the community on the various drafts of the plan.
Last summer, the county unveiled its draft master plan for a newly redeveloped and updated MetraPark. It outlined three concepts that envision amenities like a new amphitheater, improved parking with quicker entrances and exits, and a walking pedestrian mall that would make attractions more accessible from its north to south ends.
MetraPark officials will hold a series of open houses this spring to garner feedback from the community to help Yellowstone County create a master plan that includes services and amenities residents want.
The next community open house will be at 5:30 p.m. April 27 in the Lockwood High School Auditorium, 1932 Highway 87 E., Billings.
The following night on April 28 a community open house will be held at 5:30 p.m. in the Laurel High School Auditorium at 203 East 8th St., Laurel.
Following that, officials will hold an open house at 5:30 p.m. on April 29 in the Yellowstone Valley Electric Cooperative Community Room at 150 Cooperative Way, Huntley.
