Reporting of Parks Master Plan set for Feb. 23 at PHS

February 6, 2015

Priorities and survey preferences to be discussed

PROPSER – The results of recent public surveys as well as interviews and discussions regarding the Parks, Recreation and Open Space Master Plan will be shared at a visioning session set for Feb. 23, says Paul Naughton, Prosper’s Landscape Architect.

“The Master Plan will cover the next five to ten years,” he said. “So, anyone with an interest in park development and recreation programs has an opportunity to see what the current thinking is at the ground level.”

In addition to the survey results, the staff will also share identified priority areas and proposed action plans for new parks and recreational facilities contemplated for the Town.

The public visioning and discussion session is set for Monday, Feb. 23 from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m. at the Prosper High School LGI Room, 301 Eagle Drive. The LGI Room is on the first floor directly accessible from the main entrance.

“Residents who attend the session on February 23 will be exposed to the wide variety of opinions and preferences that have been expressed by their neighbors,” he added. “Our intent was to see what the Town’s needs
and wants were regarding parks and recreation programs as well as what people thought about the Town’s open spaces.”

Discussions over the last several months have centered on recreation programs, indoor facilities, park facilities, playgrounds, pavilions, open spaces, trails, athletics, sports, events and special use facilities.

“We’re now looking forward to sharing what we’ve been able to gather during our public input stage, and to get a sense of the validity of that information in the wider community,” he said.
