The meeting focuses on an exciting regional initiative to complete a Comprehensive Parks and Recreation Plan for the Clarion Region. The Comprehensive Parks and Recreation Plan will identify current deficiencies regarding parks and recreation facilities, programs, etc. and offer recommendations to address those concerns. The geographic scope of the plan encompasses parks and recreation facilities and services offered within a 15-mile radius of Clarion Borough, and recommendations will address ways to improve recreation opportunities for the region as a whole. Input from residents within the entire 15-mile radius is being sought.
The plan will take a close look at current administrative practices and partnerships, and will also examine the personnel, programs, facilities, and maintenance of regional parks and facilities, including the Paul A. Weaver Community Park, Clarion County Park, Clarion County YMCA, Clarion Area School District facilities, Clarion University facilities, the Clarion Municipal Pool, and the Toby Boat Launch.
The Comprehensive Parks and Recreation Plan kicked off in May of 2010 and is expected to be complete by April of 2011.
The purpose of the meeting, which will be held in an open house format, is to introduce the public to the Comprehensive Parks and Recreation Plan and to gauge the public’s perception of priorities for change. As an open house, the public is invited to stop by anytime between 7pm and 9pm to provide input on a variety of recreation topics. The meeting facility is accessible to persons with disabilities.
