The City will coordinate the construction schedule with the Green Local Schools’ new middle school construction schedule.

The preliminary design is based on prior feedback from a number of sources including community surveys and community feedback from the conceptual design introduced to the community in January 2022. We welcome additional feedback on the preliminary plans as we move towards the final design. Community input throughout the design stage remains essential to developing the desired outcome for our community. To provide input and comments, please provide your feedback at www.cityofgreen.org/thecourts. Once final design is completed and reviewed by Green Park and Recreation Board, the project will follow the City process of review by the Design Review Board, approval by Planning and Zoning Commission, and funding approval by Green City Council. All these meetings are open to the public.
