CAROLINA BEACH — In the process of developing its 2024-2029 parks, recreation and open space master plan, the Carolina Beach Parks and Recreation Department is inviting residents to share their feedback in three upcoming public forums.

The input sessions will take place on the following dates:

  • March 30, 10 a.m., Carolina Beach Recreation Center at 1121-B North Lake Park Blvd.
  • April 18, 6 p.m., Mike Chappell Park picnic area off Eighth Street
  • April 27, 6 p.m., Carolina Beach Recreation Center at 1121-B North Lake Park Blvd.

According to Carolina Beach, the purpose of the meetings is to develop a plan that will create a clear set of objectives and provide direction for development and enhancement of the town’s parks and recreation system for a short-term, mid-term, and long term range.  Areas of focus include parks, trails, recreation programming, and amenities/facilities.

“New facilities and programs depend largely on what is valuable to residents. Public participation in the process is extremely important so that we know what the people who recreate in our community need and want,” Parks and Recreation Director Eric Jelinski said in a press release.

Community members can provide feedback through a a survey on the town’s website through April 30.
