The future of Lakeland Parks and Recreation will be discussed at a meeting at 6:30 p.m., Thursday, August 14 and at 6:30 p.m., Thursday, August 21 at the IH Clubhouse on Canada Road.
All residents are invited to attend the meetings. Representation by all segments of the community will be emphasized so all views are considered in the Master Plan for Lakeland Parks and Recreation.
Residents wishing to participate are encouraged to complete the form at http://www.lakelandtn.gov/ and return it to Brenda Lockhart at Lakeland City Hall. We emphasize all residents are encouraged to attend and signup is not required. The signup is being conducted so efforts can be made to insure the participation includes representation reflecting Lakeland demographics.
Some examples of groups, in addition to traditional demographics, include representatives of business, health organizations, media, civic club leaders, youth organizations and scout leaders, arts organizations or local artists, church, schools, sports providers, coaches etc., and citizens with a special expertise.
I urge all residents to attend and participate in these important meetings.
