A discussion about two parks slated to be built in Philomath appears on the agenda of the Philomath Park Advisory Board. The board members plan to meet at 5 p.m. Thursday through videoconferencing.

Millpond Crossing, a housing development located north of Chapel Drive and east of South 15th Street, plans to build a neighborhood park with a pond in the coming months between its second and third phases.

A memorial park proposed to include neighborhood amenities is planned for the corner of College and North 16th streets and the board will review a survey that will be going out to nearby residents.

The meeting agenda also includes discussions on the Park Master Plan’s progress and Music in the Park concert series planning.

The city plans to hold the meeting via Zoom. The public can watch the live feed of the meeting on the city’s Facebook page at For those unable to view online, contact City Hall at 541-929-6148 to make viewing arrangements.
