The final draft of the Parks and Recreation Master Plan will be presented to City Council on Tuesday, January 7, at a specially-called meeting at 5 p.m. Representatives from Land Design, a nationally-recognized planning, design, architecture, engineering and design firm with an office located in Charlotte, NC will be giving a short presentation on the plan along with representatives from the Parks and Recreation Department.
The process which took almost one and a half years to complete, compiled data and input from the community at three different public info gathering sessions as well as a phones survey to Rowan County residents. Once the initial draft was complete, members of the Parks and Recreation Advisory Board and city staff of other departments reviewed the draft and worked together to get the document to a working final draft. The final draft was unanimously approved via vote during the October 2019 Parks and Recreation Advisory Board meeting following a Land Design staff presentation and discussion.
