Public meetings have been scheduled this month in Mandan and Hebron to gather further ideas and comments on the Morton County Parks and Trails Master Plan.
The county is particularly looking for input on the best locations for proposed facilities, as well as goals for the future of Morton County parks and trails.
The meetings are set for 5:30-7 p.m. May 20 at the Mandan Eagles (Universal) Park enclosed shelter and 6-7 p.m. May 21 at the Hebron Community Center.
A recent survey collected information on how people are served by current outdoor recreation facilities and what they desire for the future.
“Our county’s outdoor recreation facilities are primarily located toward the eastern part of the county, so many survey respondents from cities such as Hebron and Glen Ullin indicated that they would prefer closer facilities in order to use them on a regular basis,” said Natalie Pierce, Planning and Zoning director. “That is helpful feedback as we look for the best locations for future parks and trails planning.”
Survey results indicate residents would like to have more landscaped parks, multi-use paths and hiking trails and playground equipment.
