city park improvements
Construction began this month on a $4 million project at the Festival Grounds in City Park. The 50-acre extension of the Big Lake area will be the future home of the annual Voodoo Festival and other musical and cultural events. The plan preserves the established trees and green space of the old South Golf Course and features four new soccer fields, a perimeter jog/bike path, and a solar-powered pavilion for reunions and picnics.

lOOKING BACK AND MOVING FORWARD
2011 has been a wonderful year for Columbia Parc. In March, we celebrated our community's success with our development partners and residents. July marked the beginning of new chapters in the lives of residents who moved into the latest phase of completed townhomes and apartment homes. Throughout the year, we were honored with numerous awards and industry recognition, including Multifamily Community of the Year from the National Association of Home Builders. Our achievements are a tribute to all the People of Parc who have made this community possible, especially our residents, who continue to inspire us with their own success stories.

2012 will bring more exciting announcements for enhancements in and around Columbia Parc, including more residences, senior housing, recreation, resident activities, amenities, support services, and more! We look forward to sharing these developments with you. In the meantime, we wish you a happy and healthy 2012!
