JEFFERSON — The Jefferson County Parks Department will be hosting a community input workshop Monday at the UW Extension office on Collins Road in Jefferson from 6:30-8:30 p.m.
“The purpose of this workshop is to present past Jefferson County Parks plans; dialogue around what you value most about your interaction with or for the Jefferson County Parks system; sharing on what you are most proud about the County Parks System; hopes you have for the future parks system, partnership opportunities, along with future actions and initiatives that are most important to you,” a media release regarding the event stated. “These are key planning questions that could be asked in many ways. The agenda listed provides a framework for drawing out the communities’ thoughts and ideas about an ideal future Jefferson County Parks System.”
This process is part of a routine cycle of county plan reviews and updates going back to 1997. The public’s perspective will make a difference and will help influence the future direction of the Jefferson County Parks.
The agenda includes an overview of the Jefferson County Parks System, planning, and accomplishments; community and public input session; what members of the public most appreciate, are proud of, and value about the Jefferson County Parks System; new visions for parks and how the parks system can move forward.
“We hope you will be able to join us on Monday, Feb. 17 and feel free to bring a friend,” the media release stated. “Your perspectives will make a difference, and will help influence the future direction of the Jefferson County Parks. This workshop is a vital part of parks plan update, and we hope to see you there. This should be both a fun and meaningful workshop.”
