Fayetteville Parks and Recreation staff continue to seek public input 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.

Ten of 12 public meetings have been held around the city, and now an online survey is available to gather opinions on current park conditions, resident needs and priorities, and recreation offerings.

Staff said the initial data gathered from the meetings and survey will help form possible directions for the park system. The information will be brought back to the public for additional input to help develop an updated plan and to help set funding priorities.

The two remaining public meetings are:

Thursday, May 3 – Lake Fayetteville marina, 5-7 p.m.
Saturday, May 5 – Fayetteville Square, 8 a.m. to 12 p.m.
