The Plymouth Park and recreation Board will meet Monday, August 2 at 5 p.m. in the Conservation Club House.
Immediately following the regularly scheduled August meeting the Plymouth Park and Recreation Board will be holding a public meeting to discuss ideas regarding the 5-year plan. The Park Board will be updating their current 5-year plan to be eligible to apply for grants Land and Water Conservation Fund (LWCF) grants.
While the 5-year plan is a road map of where the parks are planning to go, it’s not set in stone.There are many reasons to create a master plan, including but not limited to:
- Formulating a written framework for future action that acts as a guide for sensible facility and service development
- Providing community input opportunities
- Ensuring that the public actually wants the facilities that are developed
- Providing an opportunity to share information about your programs and facilities with the public
- Giving a clear sense of direction for the park system
- Improving funding opportunities
The Park Board members want to hear from the citizens who fund the parks through taxes and citizens who use the parks. They will be looking for suggestions of implementing new activities, extending current facilities such as a trail, the need for improvements, constructing new facilities and apparatus.
The Plymouth Park and Recreation Board meets on the first Monday of each month at 5:00. Meetings are held at the Conservation Clubhouse located at 720 Magnetic Parkway.
