Addressing the critical deficiency of parkland in Hamilton County, as defined by Indiana DNR, Hamilton County Parks has acquired land for one new park and will further develop one of its existing parks. The county parks leadership is seeking direction regarding how these park properties can best be utilized. The department has scheduled an open meeting to gather public input intended to help guide the master planning of the recently acquired HC Farms property, located at 216th Street and Hinkle Road and nearby Bray Family Homestead Park, 4528 Sheridan Avenue (State Road 38), in Noblesville.
Discussion will take place concerning potential recreational activities, amenities and programs for the parks that attendees feel should be considered in planning, to best serve the community. Traditional park offerings such as trails and shelters will be discussed, along with other innovative recreational and nature education options proposed by planners and the public.
The public meeting will be held Wednesday, November 9, from 6 to 8 p.m. in Bray Family Homestead Park. Guests are invited enter the park from its State Road 38 entrance. Directional signage will be posted to aid attendees in locating the meeting space. Those individuals with special needs requiring assistance when attending the meeting are invited to contact the parks department two business days in advance, in order for appropriate accommodations to be made.
