On September 14, 2020, the Mayor and Common Council authorized execution of a contract with Pennoni Associates, Inc. to assist the City with the development of the master plan. The project will be funded with grant monies from the Land and Water Conservation Fund. The master plan will provide a foundation for the future phased development of the property, and also lay the groundwork for future City grant applications to finance park improvements.
Development of the master plan for Wakefield Valley Park will allow plenty of opportunities for community participation. We hope you will take advantage of these opportunities to provide your input.
Wakefield Valley Park Community Meeting #2
January 27, 2021
On Wednesday, January 27, 2021, the City of Westminster will hold a community meeting at which City residents and other interested parties can provide input on the development of a master plan for Wakefield Valley Park. The meeting will be held at the Carroll Arts Center, located at 91 West Main Street in Westminster. The City is also offering community members the opportunity to make their voice heard in a virtual setting.
Due to State-mandated capacity limitations, two sessions will be offered on January 27, 2021. The first seating will begin at 6:00 p.m. The second seating will be held at 7:15 p.m. Those wishing to participate in this interactive planning process are asked to RSVP for one of the two available time slots by contacting the City of Westminster Recreation and Parks Department by phone at 410-751-5501 or email at WestminsterRec@westgov.com.
Those who are unable to attend the meeting at the Carroll Arts Center can view the meeting on Facebook Live, but comments and questions posted in the Facebook chat feature will not be monitored or inventoried as part of the public input and data collection process. Rather, those wishing to provide input resulting from viewing the meeting on Facebook Live should email their comments to WakefieldComments@westgov.com.
The January 27, 2021 meeting will also be available for post-production viewing on the City’s website (www.westminstermd.gov) from January 29 through February 3, 2021. Comments from the post-production viewing can be submitted via email to WakefieldComments@westgov.com. The public comment period will remain open through February 3, 2021.
