Members of the general public are invited to take a look as plans proposed for the development of The Parklands in a public gathering set next week at Jasper City Hall.
The Parklands was the former Jasper Country Club golf course. The city purchased almost 60 acres in April 2013 after the club closed it’s doors in December of 2012 and has been looking at how best to use the property.
The city’s original idea was to develop the land as a collaborative community campus that could have a building utilized by the parks department, arts department, library and schools.
The Jasper Park Board is hosting a public meeting with the engineering and planning firms, Hafer PSC and Rundell Ernstberger Associates, at 5:30 pm next Wednesday, August 24th in the council chambers at City Hall.
Questions and comments from the public will be welcome after the presentation.
