I received this message from a co-worker today:
The Iowa City Parks and Recreation Department is beginning the process of developing a comprehensive, multi-year Parks, Recreation and Trails Master Plan, and has hired a nationally known company to assist with this effort. The purpose of the plan is to create a vision for future growth and identify the most important needs to be implemented in the next 5 to 10 years. The consultant will be conducting a series of "focus group" sessions the week of September 17th, followed by a public forum. This public forum is being held to review information gathered from the focus groups, and to help identify what the citizens of Iowa City would like to see relative to parks, recreation, trails, facilities, programs and services. The forum will be held Thursday, September 20, 7:00 to 8:30 p.m., in the Social Hall of the Robert A. Lee Community Recreation Center, 220 South Gilbert Street. The general public is invited and encouraged to attend and provide input.
For further information call the Parks and Recreation Department at 356-5110.
