PittsboroParks.org was created to help community members craft our park system by asking for substantive input throughout the Parks System Master Planning Process. So, please join the conversations, participate in the polls and don’t forget to tell your friends and neighbors about this site. Sign up for emails updates to the plan’s progress.
What is a Parks Master Plan?
A parks and open-space plan outlines a systematic approach to providing parks and recreation services to a community. Parks and open-space resources within a community include environmental, recreational, scenic, cultural, historic, and urban design elements.
Adoption of the Parks System Plan is targeted for February of 2018.
Phase 3b: Mapping Exercises
Please use the color-coded legend below for the mapping exercises that follow:
Phase 3a: Primary Survey
As followers of this site know, the Town of Pittsboro is currently drafting a Parks & Recreation System Master Plan. Throughout the planning process, the Town's goal is to have a high level of community involvement and engagement, including focus group discussions, this site's surveys, and public open house meetings.
We're also conducting a Community Needs Assessment survey to better understand our residents' priorities for parks, open space, recreation programs and facilities within the community. In coming weeks,this survey will mailed to each resident within Pittsboro's City Limits. So, even if you've provided feedback in the prior surveys, please take about 10-15 minutes to complete this survey as well.
We realize that dedicating 10-15 minutes out of everyone's busy lives is a commitment, but each question is important. The time you invest in completing this survey will aid the Town in taking a resident-driven approach to making decisions that will enrich our community and positively affect the lives of its residents.
Keep an eye on your mail in coming weeks for your opportunity to weigh in on your Parks System.
UPDATE: The survey will be mailed the week of August 21. . .
