The city will host a series of public input sessions to get ideas from residents about what they’d like to see in their local parks system.
The city’s Parks, Natural Resources, and Cultural Affairs Department is working on a 10-year master plan for Fayetteville’s parks, and will host three meetings to gather ideas and feedback for the plan.
The first meeting will be held from 10 a.m. until 11:30 a.m. on Saturday, Feb. 19 at Veterans Memorial Park Pavilion (4451 N. Vantage Drive). Also on Feb. 19, a meeting will be held from 2-3:30 p.m. at Centennial Park (500 S. Centennial Park Lane). A third meeting will be held from 3:30-6:30 p.m. at Fayetteville Public Library’s Event Center Theatre (401 W. Mountain Street).
The meetings on Feb. 19 will include a presentation by a team of consultants working on the master plan including Design Workshop, ETM, and the National Research Center (NRC). After that, attendees will have the opportunity to give their own feedback that will help inform “potential priorities and directions the master plan could take,” officials said.
Family-friendly activities will be held in association with the meeting at Centennial Park on the 19th, including an archery zone, disc golf, a group trail run, a group mountain bike ride, a children’s bike playground, and others.
The March 2 meeting at the Fayetteville Public Library will have a drop-in/open house format, and will not include a live presentation, but feedback from the public will be accepted.
