Waterford seeks input from residents on conceptual park plan
Waterford — The town is seeking feedback on a conceptual plan for Town Center Park.
On Sept. 9, the Town Center Development Ad-Hoc Committee presented the conceptual plan by Kent + Frost Landscape Architects for an improved Town Center Park, followed by a public input session. Residents can continue to provide feedback online at bit.ly/wtparkinput.
The committee will use ideas and information from community members in the finalized plan.

In a statement approved by the Ad-Hoc Committee, Planning Director Abby Piersall said the project area, next to Town Hall on Rope Ferry Road, was selected as a starting point to implement years of conceptual planning efforts aimed at creating a more vibrant and accessible community center.
"Work includes developing a final master plan, complete with initial designs, assessments of things we can do to improve the environment, a strategy to prioritize project elements and preliminary cost estimates," she said.
The finalized plan will be presented Oct. 14 for public viewing and comments.
