Deadline Nearing on Opportunity to Weigh in on Parks Master Plan
FAYETTEVILLE, Ark. — The City of Fayetteville’s Parks and Recreation Department is in the process of developing a new master plan for the future of the City’s parks. A key element of this process is a public questionnaire, which has been available since mid-July on Speak Up Fayetteville, the City’s public engagement portal.
The questionnaire will be closing on Sept. 17, and Parks staff is urging residents who have not yet done so to take a few minutes to take the questionnaire and let their voices be heard. The questionnaire is available at www.fayetteville-ar.gov/speakup.
This round of public outreach is intended to learn what residents feel are the most pressing needs for the parks system and how those needs should be prioritized for the future. The online questionnaire takes about 12-15 minutes to complete.
Parks Planning Superintendent Ted Jack said, “This new Park Master Plan will be guiding the City’s parks projects for the next 10 years. It’s important that we hear directly from our residents about what they feel is important going forward. The parks are for everyone, and since we want to be as inclusive as possible, we urge everyone to get involved in the planning process.”
