Fayetteville Parks & Recreation to host public input sessions to help update Parks Master Plan

The Fayetteville Parks & Recreation department will host a series of public input sessions to gather feedback for an update to the city’s Parks Master Plan.

Originally designed as a 10-year strategic planning tool that identifies potential outdoor park and recreation needs and priorities, the plan hasn’t been updated since it was implemented in 2002. City Council members in October approved spending $200,000 to update the plan.

A dozen public meetings are planned at various locations around town between April 5 and May 5. During the meetings, park staff will be present to answer questions, and park information will be available to review and contemplate before providing thoughts and ideas.
