What Do Holly Springs Residents Want in Hickory Road Park?
The first public meeting on how the city should spend $1.5 million Cherokee County's parks and recreation agency gave to plan and build the park will be Monday afternoon.
Holly Springs has picked a design firm for the construction of a new park on Hickory Road, but the public needs to let the city know what amenities they want at the park.
The topography of the site and a perennial stream that bisects the park property will put limits on some types of construction, the city said on its website.
The city has received $1.5 million in county recreation bond funds from the Cherokee County Recreation & Parks Agency to design and build the Hickory Road park near Harmony on the Lakes.
Local residents get two chances to meet with city officials and the design firm, Foresite Group. Inc., to give input on the project.
Public Input Meetings
- Monday, Oct. 15, 4-6 p.m.
- Wednesday, Nov. 14, 4-6 p.m.
- Holly Springs Municipal Courtroom
- 3235 Holly Springs Pkwy, Holly Springs
Since not everyone can make it to meetings on these dates, the city also provides a place online to make comments. Visit the city's website and post ideas under the community voice tab on the left side of the homepage.
Foresite was chosen this summer after interviews with four firms.
The Cherokee County agency will manage the project on the city's behalf .
City staff reports they already have heard from several groups interested in athletic fields. But the city wants input from more of the public.
