SCUGOG: Seagrave residents will be given an opportunity to re-form their Park Board, and highlight their opinions on the Coryell St. greenspace, during an up-coming meeting this weekend.
Ward 1 Councillor Betty Somerville has heard the call for improvements on the park, and will hold a meeting to decide the members of the new Seagrave Park Board, and any initiatives they may undertake - on Saturday, Jan. 24, at 10:30 a.m., inside the basement of the Seagrave Church.
Councillor Somerville, as well as Scugog Mayor Tom Rowett and the Township’s new Director of Public Works and Parks, Glen Smith, will be in attendance to receive input, and answer the questions of residents.
According to Councillor Somerville, the most important question on the agenda is whether or not residents would like to re-instate a Seagrave Park Board at all, and who from the community might step-up to be a voice.
“Three years ago, the Park Board was dissolved, but we’ve heard some talk of interest lately. This meeting will hopefully tell us where the people stand,” Councillor Somerville told The Standard.
Other pertinent topics will include the upkeep and maintenance in the park, the Township’s role in the park, any future fund raisers or events, and improvement projects which could be slated.
“The park is well-used for baseball and sports, but the grounds have been deteriorating for some time - our park needs to be taken care of and utilized by different community groups,” said Councillor Somerville.
Councillor Somerville told The Standard that the meeting was open to all, and that all opinions and interests would be welcomed.
