City asks for more input on old Leatherback spot

The City of Hollister held the first community input meeting on the old Leatherback location about two weeks ago and plans another gathering Wednesday.

The City of Hollister is looking at developing the old Leatherback property into a community center with outdoor uses.

The city owns the property where the former Leatherback company operated until shutting down in 2007.

The meeting this week is set for 7-8 p.m. Wednesday at Fire Station No. 1, 110 Fifth St.

The city plans to use a portion of its allotted Prop. 68 funding that must go toward park facility improvements. There is $4.1 billion available statewide.

According to an announcement from the city, snacks and beverages will be provided at the meeting.

The city will receive input on the type and location of facilities at the old “Leatherback” property located at the southeast corner of Hillcrest Road and McCray Street. A community center and some outdoor uses are identified as future uses in the draft Parks Facility Master Plan.
