City of Fayetteville seeks input for Park System Master Plan draft
FAYETTEVILLE, Ark. — The City of Fayetteville is asking residents to provide feedback on its drafted Park System Master Plan, which aims to set the vision and guide the Parks, Natural Resources and Cultural Affairs Department’s efforts over the next 10 years.
The current 104-page draft has been developed after multiple public engagement opportunities, including public meetings, focus groups and questionnaires.
This will be the City’s first Park System Master Plan since 2002. Development of the new master plan began in 2018. It is meant to include achievable strategies regarding the department’s development, programing, funding and priorities for the future.
Feedback is being sought until Wednesday, Nov. 23. The drafted Park System Master Plan and an accompanying questionnaire have been posted to Speak Up Fayetteville, the City’s online engagement portal, at: https://speakup.fayetteville-ar.gov.
A joint meeting of the Parks Advisory Board and Parks Master Plan Advisory Committee will be held via Zoom at noon Wednesday, Nov. 16, during which the plan draft will be discussed with different elements explained. This meeting will be recorded and available for public view on the City’s website.
The drafted plan, as well as more information about the process, also can be found on the City’s website at: https://www.fayetteville-ar.gov/337/Parks-and-Recreation-System-Master-Plan.
