The City of Statesville will hold a public meeting on Tuesday, November 17, to unveil the Master Plan for the Shelton Avenue Linear Park. The public is invited to the drop-in meeting at the Bentley Community Center, located at 324 Wilmington Avenue, from 6 to 8 p.m., to view and discuss the proposed uses and features for the new park.
The proposed multi-use path and linear park was first identified as part of the Downtown & NC 115 Streetscape/Land Use Master Plan prepared in 2009.
In the past year, the Planning Department has created an advisory committee to oversee the process and received input from the community on the planning and design of the facility. Those ideas have been incorporated into the proposed design that the public can view and comment on Tuesday.
The public will be asked to wear a mask and social distancing will be observed.
