Citizens invited to comment on the development of a community center

09/13/2012

Citizen input on the proposed construction of a community center in Laurinburg was gathered during two public sessions Monday, September 17.  Comments continue and can be made at the Parks and Recreation main page.  Users can access a brief 10-question survey, which will help gauge interest in a community center.

The question of constructing a community center is part of a several-phase process.  A telephone survey of Scotland County residents is part of the first phase in the process.  Results of the survey will help determine the level of community interest in a center for recreation, fitness and other leisure activities.  Solicitation of citizen input is the next step in the survey process.

Consultants from Site Solutions Landscape Architects of Charlotte, NC, and Oakley Collier Architects of Rocky Mount, NC, are assisting with the survey. 

Information from the survey and public meetings will assist in the development of a conceptual plan for a community center in Scotland County. The conceptual plan will reflect the interest of the citizens of Scotland County.

The study is made possible through a collaborative effort by the Scotland Health Care System, the City of Laurinburg and the Scotland County Recreation Foundation.
