The Emerson Park programming plan was unveiled at a public meeting Wednesday night.
About 50 people — many with questions — came to the park’s pavilion to learn more about the programming initiative, a part of the master plan for the park approved by the Cayuga County Legislature in 2015.
Public engagement sessions for potential programming were held in March. Cayuga County Planning and Economic Development director Steve Lynch kicked off the event Wednesday by thanking those who had attended previous meetings and introduced Dan Biederman, president of Biederman Redevelopment Ventures, who the county has been working with on programming. The firm works on public and private spaces around the country and has developed programs for parks in cities such as New York, Dallas and San Francisco.
