Iredell County is developing an updated Parks and Recreation Master Plan and would like to hear
from residents, business owners, special interest groups, and other interested parties.
There will be a public forum on Dec. 19, beginning at 6:30 p.m. at the Career Academy and Technical School (CATS), located at 350 Old Murdock Road in Troutman. Everyone is encouraged to attend.
The Parks and Recreation Master Plan will evaluate existing parks, recreational facilities, programs and services, and determine the current and future level of services for the community, based on public input. The plan will then prioritize the needs and desires for upgrading and improving parks, recreational facilities, amenities, programs, and services.
In addition to this public forum, a needs assessment survey will be conducted. The results will be utilized to determine the priorities for the county’s recreational facilities and activities desired by residents, potential funding sources that may be available, identify potential partnerships and how best to support the recreational needs of the community, according to a release.
Iredell County has hired GreenPlay, LLC, a nationally known parks and recreation management consulting firm, (www.greenplayllc.com) to oversee the plan.
