What is Meck Playbook?
Mecklenburg County has experienced sustained (often booming!) growth since the mid 1800s. Amid this evolution, the County has consistently maintained a clear, supported vision for our parks and recreation system, described through a visual framework and actionable steps.
Meck Playbook will build upon and go beyond these prior planning efforts to establish achievable ways for the County to respond to future recreation trends, adapt to the needs of an evolving community, align maintenance investment with capital spending, and embody its mission — all while protecting what is important about the County’s unique spirit of the place.
Meck Playbook is an 18-month comprehensive planning and outreach project to help create the parks and recreation system of tomorrow. Meck Playbook will result in a plan for future parks and programs and develop a vision and strategies to meet the recreation needs of County residents and create vibrant places for people who visit and work in the County.
The Playbook will be developed in close collaboration between the County and the community. At the end of the plan process, Meck Playbook will be shared with the Park and Recreation Commission and Board of County Commissioners for approval.
