Give us Your Input! Public Parks and Recreation Meeting Monday, September 17th

Is Parks and Recreation important to you and your family or friends? Do you or your kids actively participate in little leagues or adult leagues that take place in our unincorporated Parks Districts? Nevada County will be holding a public Community Meeting on Monday, September 17th, in the Board of Supervisors Chamber at the Rood Center located at 950 Maidu Avenue in Nevada City from 6:00 p.m. to 8:00 p.m. to review the work that has been done on the AB1600 Nexus Study and to gain public input on the Western Nevada County Parks District Consolidation Feasibility Study.

Nevada County is partnering with Economic & Planning Systems, Inc. (EPS) to update the County’s Park Facility Impact Fee (AB1600 Nexus Study) and to conduct a Western Nevada County Parks District Consolidation Feasibility Study. The consolidation study looks at the possible effects on the three Park Districts in unincorporated Nevada County including Western Gateway Park District, Bear River Park District, and Oak Tree Park District and also on the other areas of the unincorporated County that are not currently in the park districts that are called “benefit zones.”

EPS is looking for input from Nevada County residents regarding parks and recreation facilities and services in Nevada County. EPS is looking at four different possible structure alternatives for the three parks districts and benefit zones: no change, full consolidation, partial consolidation, or a hybrid approach. Monday's meeting will focus on the potential reorganization of the unincorporated Western Nevada County park districts and benefit zones and receiving public feedback.

Currently, the three parks districts operate independently of each other and the County with their own staffing, budgets, facilities and residents served. While the County does not provide parks and recreation services, there is an interest in understanding whether there are more efficient ways to provide these services to the
community. Changes to the current structure of western Nevada County's parks districts and benefit zones could affect operations and management, service provisions, and financial considerations of the parks in unincorporated Nevada County. EPS will review the possible effects with the public at the meeting, as well as facilitate and receive feedback from breakout sessions during the meeting.

Public participation at the September 17th Parks and Recreation meeting is strongly encouraged; we want to hear from you! Mark your calendars and let us know your input on your local parks and recreation services.
