The Parks and Recreation departments for Lincoln County and the City of Lincolnton are currently developing a joint system-wide Parks and Recreation Master Plan for improving and further developing recreation opportunities for all residents of the County and City! While the County and City are individual units of government, and maintain separate control of their land, facilities and budgets, collaborative planning can allow for better coordinated and more efficient recreation systems. While the County and City work closely with several public and private agencies that provide recreation opportunities for their residents, the jurisdiction and focus of this Master Plan is on the county- and city-owned and operated parks and recreation facilities and programs. This survey will be just one of the tools used to help formulate this Master Plan. Many factors will be considered including, but not limited to, funding constraints and long-term staffing and maintenance concerns. Please take a moment to share your thoughts and concerns regarding this topic. Thank you for your time and ideas.
