Public Invited to Comment on Draft of Chatham Master Plan for Parks & Recreation

Post Date:11/20/2018 2:21 PM
The Chatham County Parks & Recreation Department reports that substantial progress has been made in developing an updated comprehensive master plan for parks, recreation and greenways. Several opportunities are coming up for county residents to provide feedback on a draft of the plan.

“Consultants from McAdams developed a draft master plan following several public input processes, a review of recreation trends, and an inventory of existing parks, programs and greenways in Chatham County,” said Tracy Burnett, county director of parks and recreation. “The draft includes recommendations for park improvements, programs, greenways, operations, finance and health and wellness.”

OPEN HOUSE:  Residents are invited to stop by an open house where the draft master plan will be available for review and feedback. The open house is slated for Tuesday, December 11, from 5:30-7:30 PM at the Chatham County Agricultural and Conference Center, located about two miles west of Pittsboro at 1192 US 64 Business. The public can stop by anytime during the two-hour period.

ONLINE VERSION:  A second opportunity to provide feedback will occur later in December, when an updated, complete draft of the master plan on county homepage at Residents will be asked to offer comments.

Public feedback will help shape the final version that will be considered for adoption by the Board of Commissioners.
