The Davie County Recreation and Parks Department is preparing a grant application for the Parks and Recreation Trust Fund (PARTF) in conjunction with phase one of the new Davie County Park (Davie County High School Re-purposing Project).

“These community meetings will be an excellent opportunity for residents to provide input and suggestions on a Splash Pad design and accommodating features,” said Paul Moore, recreation director.

The new park phase one master plan was approved by the Davie County Board of Commissioners on Dec. 4, 2017. This is the first PARTF application that Davie County will submit for any project.

“We want to ensure that our application stands out and thoroughly covers all the check boxes. Six of the top 10 elements that were identified as top priorities by our residents and advisory board were approved for phase one. The Splash Pad feature was a clear recommendation from residents.

“Now, we want to go a step further and seek resident input on our PARTF application. It’s your chance to be creative and design a Splash Pad that everyone will enjoy,” Moore said.

Scheduled public input meeting dates are:

• Thursday, March 1 at Brock Recreation Center, North Main St., Mocksville; 6-8 p.m.; and

• Saturday, March 10 at recreation center, 9:30 a.m.-11:30 a.m.
