SNELLVILLE – What would make T.W. Briscoe Park better?
City leaders will be looking for your answers to that question at two public meetings as part of Phase III of the T.W. Briscoe Park Master Plan update.
Nearly $4 million was set aside in 2014 Special Local Option Sales Tax funds for renovations, possibly including a multipurpose building.
“A new multipurpose building would give us better ability to provide more diverse programming, better meeting and activity rooms and better offices for efficiency,” said Parks and Recreation Director Lisa Platt. “It’s about being able to offer more options to visitors to the park. It opens a lot of options we haven’t been able to provide.”
The first meeting is from 6 to 8 p.m. Aug. 15 at the park office at the park, 2500 Sawyer Parkway. The second meeting is from 6:30 to 8 p.m. Sept. 19 at City Hall, 2342 Oak Road.
This would be the fourth round of SPLOST improvements at the park. The first three – dubbed Phase I, IIa and IIb – started in 2008 and included additional restrooms, additional sidewalks, a multipurpose field, parking lot improvements and a softball complex.
The meeting is open to the public. Citizen input will help determine the needs of the community which will shape the future use of the park.
