Upcoming Department of Parks & Rec Community Meeting - Tuesday, Oct 3

From DPR:

The City of Atlanta Department of Parks and Recreation invites you to join us for an upcoming Community Meeting to learn more about what is happening at DPR! Parks are growing, recreation programs are expanding, and we want you to know!

We are excited to demonstrate how we are working for you, showcase our new initiatives, and to learn more about how we can best serve our neighbors through exceptional parks & recreation services.

During the planning process for Activate ATL, our 10-Year Master Plan that was approved in December 2021, we heard from community, partners, and staff about the need to prioritize and fund equitable improvements; further elevating the need for additional resources to help us achieve our goals to Invest, Connect, and Grow Atlanta's Parks and Recreation System.

Thanks to each of you and our many partners, friends groups, conservancies, Mayor Andre Dickens, and City Council, we have delivered on our efforts to bring more resources to DPR with a recent Millage Funding increase which will provide DPR with an estimated $16 million a year to continuously improve our services and offerings.

We hope you will attend the upcoming Community Meeting to learn more about DPR's plan to allocate these additional funds in alignment with community and staff input, hear about progress made towards Activate ATL and its' companion DPR 5-Year Strategic Plan, and share your feedback about how we can best ensure that all Atlantans, in all neighborhoods, have safe access to high quality parks and recreation services.

Tuesday 10/3 | 6pm-7:30 PM (In-Person @ MLK Recreation Center)
110 Hilliard Street SE, Atlanta GA 30312
