The first community visioning workshops have wrapped up, which you can read all about here. The planning team also conducted a volunteer stakeholder meeting on November 28th that was attended by 60 Great Parks volunteers. The volunteers are very knowledgeable about the parks system, so they provided some valuable feedback! Check out a few photos from that meeting below.
If you missed the opportunity to participate in the workshops, there are still more ways you can participate! One opportunity ongoing over the next few months, is a planning activity and information table that will be set up at several upcoming events. At the community events below, volunteers or members of Great Parks of Hamilton County staff will be on hand at the times specified to hand out surveys and facilitate a map-based planning activity. This is a great opportunity for you to share your vision for the future of our parks and help shape the Comprehensive Master Plan. We hope to see you at one of the following events!
