Everyone knows with Shakopee real estate prices declining over the past few years, new construction homes in Shakopee slowing until last year, and increased pressure by the City of Shakopee to make budget cuts have put some city projects on hold. Originally the park in the predominant neighborhood built by Centex, Park Meadows, in Shakopee had no funds to build their community park until 2013. Original plans for the 6+ acre park included a hockey rink, multiple base fields, potential soccer fields, a playground and more.
Finally the time has come and funding did get moved up! I was speaking to a Shakopee real estate agent from Centex homes that did confirm the park was to begin being built this summer. I also confirmed with the City of Shakopee that the Park Meadows neighborhood park would begin construction this summer. The woman I spoke with stated there is a neighborhood meeting Thursday, March 3rd at 6:30pm at Sunpath elementary in Shakopee.
According to the City of Shakopee construction will begin in June with as much as the budget allows, which is was stated to be a large budget. What they include in the park will be determined by what the City of Shakopee wants & neighbor influence. The City of Shakopee does hope to include multiple ball fields, a play ground for sure, hockey rink and open space.
If you are thinking of purchasing a home in the Park Meadows neighborhood, or looking at all Shakopee homes for sale make sure you get preapproved before starting you Shakopee home search. If you have a home to sell, talk to a local Shakopee Realtor to find the current market value of your home.
