MILTON, Ga. There will be three input meetings in late April and June for residents interested in the proposed Bell Memorial Park expansion project.

The first will be held April 27 at Bell Memorial Park as part of the Hopewell Youth Association's HYA Day, the kick-off of the spring tournament. The second and third will be held at Milton's City Hall, 13000 Deerfield Parkway, June 6 and 27. All three will be moderated by Milton's plan partner, Foresite Group.

Additionally, staff has contacted representatives from 11 stakeholder groups representing sports leagues, trails enthusiasts, equestrians, local neighborhoods and more to conduct focused research.

Milton's 3 meetings on Bell Park

"We know residents want more than just rectangle and diamond fields for group sports," said Jim Cregge, the city's parks and recreation director. "We want to create a park with walking trails and other amenities so the park services the whole community not just families with children playing sports.

"So please come out, take a look at what we're looking to do, and let us know what you think," he said.

These meetings follow a Living Room Conversation in November 2012 at Shannondale Farms in which residents learned about Milton's purchase of 14 acres to more than double the size of the park.

Milton paid $1.3 million for the land from the city's parks acquisition budget after a unanimous City Council vote in September of last year. City Council later approved Foresite Group's bid of $54,000 for Bell Memorial Park master plan design and construction services March 18.
