The city of Georgetown will host a virtual public forum at 6 p.m. on May 24 to kick off the creation of a new parks and recreation master plan, according to a May 7 news release.

The master plan will provide a vision for the Parks and Recreation Department for the next 10 years, the release said.

Consultants GreenPlay LLC will look at the existing parks, recreational facilities and services to determine future needs with input from the public. The plan will prioritize the community’s desires for upgrading and improving parks and recreational assets to develop goals, policies and guidelines, it said.

Additionally, a needs assessment survey will be conducted to determine priorities for the parks and recreation system, facilities and activities as well as availability of funding sources, partnerships and support for the parks and recreational needs, it said.

The master planning process is expected to be completed by January 22, the release said.
