Rec looking for ideas for new space

When Davie High School closes its campus south of Mocksville this summer, it will become home to the Davie County Recreation and Parks Department.

What will it become?

The possibilities are limitless, and Recreation Director Paul Moore wants the public to let him know what they want.

A public input meeting will be held on Saturday, Feb. 25 at the Brock Recreation Center on North Main Street in Mocksville from 10 a.m.-noon.

Stop by and see the possibilities, and give your opinion.

“Over the last several months, suggestions have been received but more feedback is warranted for a project of this size and importance,” Moore said. “We have been pleased with the input we have received in person and through online venues such as the department’s community Facebook page.

“However, we want to go a step further and engage residents face-to-face through a series of public input meetings. Our hope is that all residents will make it a priority to attend where they can voice their opinion on this important project which provides both recreational opportunities, but positive economic impact opportunities.

“This is a unique opportunity for residents to play an integral role in bringing this project to life. We are looking forward to hearing from members of the community and working together to transform the current Davie High School site into a thriving venue that will benefit everyone in all of Davie County.”
