The public is invited to provide input for a Valentine Comprehensive Parks and Recreation Master Plan Wednesday evening at Bolo Beer Co in Valentine. Valentine’s Comprehensive Parks and Recreation Master Plan will be used to: Prioritize and guide future park, recreation, and trail development and improvements including budgets and seek out additional funding sources and partnerships for the proposed projects Over the past year, a steering committee with representatives from several local groups have met together to engage in the master planning process. The group worked together to gather data, create an inventory of current conditions; propose new connections and enhancements to area conservation and recreation resources, and look at specific improvements to regional parks and preserves, land and water trails. The goal of the public engagement activity on March 15 from 5:30-7 p.m. at Bolo is for Valentine area residents to contribute their vision for the parks and trails of Valentine. The event will feature a summary presentation by Kat Shiffler, Landscape Architect with the National Park Service – Rivers, Trails and Conservation Assistance Program from 5:30-6 p.m. Public input will be taken to help prioritize plans moving forward.
