Public Meeting #1

March 8, 2023, 5:00-7:30P

Hunt Recreation Center gymnasium, 90 Stow Street Concord, MA. 

The Town of Concord Recreation Department invites members of the public to gather in the gymnasium at the Hunt Recreation Center on Thursday March 8, 2023 from 5:00-7:30pm for a first Public Meeting to help update the Concord Recreation Facilities Strategic Plan (RFSP). Concord Recreation, together with design firm Weston & Sampson, is conducting an assessment to understand opportunities and challenges in the town’s current recreational facilities and to guide operational, staffing and budgeting decisions for Concord Recreation and other key town departments. The study has been funded through Community Preservation Act funds and has a target completion date of late fall 2023.

The first public meeting will be held on March 8, 2023 as an interactive and inclusive open house broken into three parts: first, attendees can visit tables manned by our team to discuss topics such as current recreation facilities and programs, improved accessibility and inclusivity, or water access points to launch a kayak or canoe along the many rivers and ponds in Concord. A short presentation will then follow to introduce the plan and its purpose, share what the planning team has learned to date from site visits and the online survey, and engage residents on what sort of future interventions they might like to see in their community. A Question-and-Answer session will wrap up the evening with additional time provided for any final visits to the topical tables. For parents, guardians, and caregivers of children who wish to attend this open house, childcare will be provided at the Hunt Recreation Center.
