Birmingham Park planning meetings Dec. 14, 15.

MILTON, Ga., Dec. 5, 2011 - As part of the ongoing City of Milton Parks and Recreation Master Planning process, two workshops will be held at City Hall Wednesday and Thursday, Dec. 14 and 15, to discuss the future of 200-acre Birmingham Park.

Both will take place at 7 p.m. in City Council Chambers at Milton's City Hall, 13000 Deerfield Parkway, Suite 107 E.

"We've had great turnout at the last two parks planning meetings in November regarding the master plan as a whole and trail plan component," said department Director John Rebar. "These two workshops continue that process, and I'm hoping we get another impassioned group to work with us on this project."
During the meetings, residents will be shown maps of Birmingham Park and asked what types of activities, if any, they would like to see planned in the space. There will also be discussions regarding the park's position in a city-wide system, said Rebar.

There will be a follow-up public input meeting after the first of the year where residents will be asked to judge the work resulting from the proceeding four planning sessions and give direction on where the plan should go. It will also be held at Milton's City Hall.

The Comprehensive Parks and Recreation Master Plan, which will include both the Birmingham Park Master Plan and Trail Plan update as components, will be delivered to City Council in early March by project consultants Moreland Altobelli Associates, Inc.
