Parks and Recreation to hold public input sessions for Comprehensive Master Plan

Johnson City Parks and Recreation is continuing the process of updating its Comprehensive Master Plan, a document that will outline the department’s direction of growth and focus over the next 20 years. Citizens are invited to offer public input at two sessions this month: Tuesday, Sept. 13 from 6-7:30 p.m. at Memorial Park Community Center, 510 Bert St., and Tuesday, Sept. 27 from 5:30-7 p.m. at Carver Recreation Center, 322 W. Watauga Ave.

A public survey is also available at www.johnsoncitytn.org/ParksPlan. Data collected from the survey and the public input sessions will assist the department in identifying citizen preferences that will help evaluate and guide programming, assess current facilities and resources, and explore future needs.

“We encourage public participation in the Comprehensive Master Plan process,” said Parks and Recreation Director James Ellis. “The services provided by our department play a vital role within our community. This entire process allows us to strategically examine our existing services, facilities, and resources while considering what might be asked of the department in the future.”

For more information, please contact Ellis at 423-283-5815 or jamesellis@johnsoncitytn.org.
