The Parks & Recreation Comprehensive Master Plan will be used to guide future budget decisions and park system projects for the next 10 years. The Comprehensive Master Plan has been conducted by Benesch, a consulting firm who works with local governments throughout the country to determine community park and recreation needs and develops plans to meet those needs. They have been gathering information, collecting data and talking to citizens over the past nine months in order to compile this comprehensive report. The Comprehensive Master Plan will be presented to the Parks & Recreation Board and the Parks & Recreation Committee during a joint meeting on Wednesday, October 5 at 7 p.m. The presentation will include results from the community needs assessment survey, along with information gathered at stakeholder meetings, focus groups and public meetings. The meeting will be held in Suite 220 of the Forsyth County Administration Building located at 110 E. Main Street in Cumming. It will also serve as the regularly scheduled monthly meeting of the Parks & Recreation Board. Following the presentation, the Parks & Recreation Board and Parks & Recreation Committee will be asked to consider a recommendation on the plan to the Board of Commissioners. The final plan is slated to be presented to the Board of Commissioners for their consideration at their work session on October 25. The plan will guide the county’s park system through 2026.
