Please note the calendar:
Galveston County is embarking on its third Parks, Recreation and Open Space Master Planning effort since 1998, and is seeking public comments and recommendations. The first Master Plan was completed in 1998 and updated in 2003 to address senior citizen needs and programs.
Mr. Harris (Director of Galveston County Parks and Senior Services) asks County residents to participate in a web –based version of the Parks and Recreation Survey. The web-based survey will be available from August 16th through September 30th and can be accessed through the County’s Department of Parks and Senior Services web site at: www.galvestonparks-seniors.org
“The County hopes to expand resident and park user participation in the master planning process through the web-based survey, thereby helping the County gain a better understanding of residents’ current and future recreation needs and concerns,” Harris said.
In addition to the telephone and web-based surveys, the County is seeking resident comments and recommendations through a series of public meetings to be held in four locations later this month:
Meeting One: 6:30 PM, Tuesday, July 20, 2010 at Crystal Beach Annex – Bolivar Peninsula
Meeting Two: 6:30 PM, Thursday, July 22, 2010 at Bacliff Annex Building
Meeting Three: 6:30 PM, Tuesday, July 27, 2010 at Johnson Center, Carbide Park
Meeting Four: 6:30 PM, Thursday, July 29, 2010 at Walter Hall Park Pavilion
Galveston County Department of Parks and Senior Services will update the Commissioner’s Court on August 3, 2010 during a workshop at the County Courthouse in Galveston. County residents are invited to attend and provide further comments and recommendations.
