  Plans for a new county park near the site of the Andy Lopez shooting have been drawn up and are heading for construction, prepared with extensive input from the neighborhood.

  There was also considerable discussion about incorporating a community center building in the small park site, but Sonoma County Regional Parks planner Scott Wilkinson says ultimately, that had to be left out.

Alicia Carroll, a long-time Moorland neighborhood resident and a member of the resident steering committee that collaborated on the park design, says that while she supports the memorial area for Andy Lopez within the park, she has been reluctant to see it named for him.
