Phoenix could put out a call for a new dining concept at Margaret T. Hance Park in the coming months, seeking to transform a former firehouse into a culinary space reflecting the city’s current food scene. Whether that happens will depend in part on feedback received from the community, according to a city spokesperson Phoenix New Times reached by phone on Tuesday.
Heather Rasmussen, a project manager in the city’s community and economic development department, shared preliminary details of the potential project during a recent meeting of representatives for several downtown neighborhoods. The parks and recreation department is also involved with planning for the project, which includes a site just south of Burton Barr Central Library.
