City of Milton wants input on Bell Park


Meeting at Shannondale Farms Nov. 13


November 07, 2012
MILTON, Ga. The city of Milton wants to talk about the plans to expand Bell Memorial Park, so the Parks and Recreation Department will hold a Living Room Conversation on the topic Tuesday, Nov. 13 from 7 to 8:30 p.m. at Shannondale Farms.

Shannondale Farms, owned by Parks and Recreation Advisory Board member David Shannon, is located at 2225 Birmingham Road in Milton. Refreshments will be provided.

At the meeting, Parks and Recreation Interim Director Jim Cregge will talk about city's preliminary plans for the park and discuss a timeline for the project. There will then be an opportunity for residents to comment on the project and share any concerns they may have.

This meeting follows September's unanimous city council vote to purchase 14 acres of land adjacent to the park, fulfilling the promise outlined in the Parks Master Plan to expand the asset.

The city paid $1.287 million for the land, which will allow the park to more than double in size. The exact use of the land will be determined through community involvement and a series of public meetings to ensure the park's design meets local expectations.

The money paid for the land was based on fair market value in an open environment that included public hearings on the purchase prices. The purchases were funded through the city's parks land acquisition budget.

For more information on this project or the meeting, contact Cregge at 678-242-2489 or jim.cregge@cityofmiltonga.us.
