PROJECT UPDATE

Based on community review and comments during the initial schematic design phase, the Fisher Street Park Relocation project is now in the design development phase. Final design and permitting are scheduled to go into Fall 2021. The current schedule anticipates park construction to begin in late 2021 or early 2022.  The existing Fisher Street Park will remain in place until the new park site is open to the public in 2022.

During the initial public engagement process, the idea of including art in the park design was recommended.  As such, Raleigh Arts, a service unit of the Parks, Recreation and Cultural Resources Department, was brought onto the project to procure an artist exclusively for this project.  Through a series of interviews with the Fisher Park Artist Selection Panel, composed of representatives of the College Park and local arts communities, a finalist was selected.  Jermaine “JP” Powell is a North Carolina-based mixed-media artist and muralist and is currently engaging with the community to develop a vision for future art elements at Fisher Street Park.  

Please participate in the current Public Art Survey.  See link to survey below.

The schematic design survey was available for public comment in May - April 2021.  See survey results below
