Williamson County looking for public input for updates to parks department’s master plan

0

As the Williamson County Parks and Recreation Department gears up to update its comprehensive master plan, the county is asking residents to offer input on what they would like to see in the county’s parks.

The county’s comprehensive master plan guides Williamson County in developing park and trails, acquiring space and parkland and in obtaining grants. According to a county news release, the comprehensive park master plan was first developed in 2001 and last updated in 2008.

With 2018 marking the Parks and Recreation Department’s 15th anniversary, it is an appropriate time to review the master plan and to update it, said senior director Randy Bell. With resident input, the plan will be able to reflect what the Williamson County community wants.

“We want to listen to our community and provide our residents with the types of parks, trails and open space experiences that add quality to their lives,” Bell said, in the news release.

Open houses have been scheduled for the public to provide input on the future of county parks, trails and to learn more about the parks plan recommendations:

  • Monday, April 2, 5-7 p.m. at the Williamson County Historic Courthouse, 710 S. Main St., Georgetown
  • Wednesday, April 4, 4-6 p.m. at the Cedar Park Annex, 2nd Floor, 350 Discovery Blvd., Cedar Park
  • Wednesday, April 11, 5-7 p.m. at the Fern Bluff MUD Community Center, 7320 Wyoming Springs Drive, Round Rock
  • Thursday, April 12, 5-7 p.m. at the WilCo Expo Center, 5350 Bill Pickett Trail, Taylor
