Roanoke Parks and Recreation Director Steve Buschor says planners are developing a blueprint this fall, and part of that process includes open houses Wednesday and Thursday. They are scheduled for 3:00 to 6:00 pm each day at the Roanoke Library’s main branch. You can see what’s been developed so far, and tell planners what’s important to you.
If you cannot attend the open houses but wish to share your opinions with planners, click here for an on-line survey developed as part of the planning process.
If all goes according to schedule, changes to Elmwood Park should begin by late next summer or early fall.
