Thank you to everyone who attended Meck Playbook’s first virtual public workshops on June 23, 2020! We had a blast sharing our progress and discussing ideas with the Mecklenburg County community!
Over three sessions, we had 108 participants, representing 84% of Mecklenburg County’s zipcodes, and collected 148 comments. Ideas ranged from opportunities to share more stories about our shared history to safer crossings between neighborhoods and local parks to programs for nature education.
You can find a more detailed summary and poll results from the virtual public workshops here.
The 18-month plan development process has just begun! Below is a timeline with project milestones and goals for each step of the plan’s development.
Phase 1 (Discovery)The first phase of Meck Playbook will begin with a review of plans previously created for the County and initial conversations with key stakeholders and initial public engagement.
Phase 2 (Inventory)Meck Playbook will take inventory each of the system’s parks, nature preserves, greenways, trails and facilities, and research current asset access, demographic and recreation trends, and environmental systems.
Phase 3 (Envision)The Playbook will focus on developing initial ideas, goals and future septs that will add up to a cohesive vision.
We are here
Phase 4 (Implementation)The master plan vision needs to be actionable and comprehensive. This phase of the plan will take the vision and goals and pair them with a series of recommendations that are prioritized as part of an implementation strategy.
