Following several months of presenting design concepts to thousands of people in our community and hearing their feedback, three Salem architects submitted their final design concepts for an enhanced Riverfront Park amphitheater in early September. Today, the Rotary Amphitheater Design Committee, consisting of five Rotarians, a community representative, and the Chair of the Salem Parks and Recreation Advisory Board, selected the Basket Weave design by CB|Two Architects as the Preferred Design for the Rotary Amphitheater. The committee’s recommendation will go to the Salem Parks and Recreation Advisory Board, and to City Council for final approval.
This is an exciting milestone in the effort to bring an enhanced amphitheater to Riverfront Park, and the Design Committee expresses its sincere appreciation to those at AC & Co. Architecture Community, Anderson Shirley Architects, and CB|Two Architects, who devoted many hours to develop the initial design concepts that have been shared with the community over the past several months.
