The City of Fitchburg Planning Department and Fitchburg Parks Department are working to update the City’s Comprehensive Park, Open Space, and Recreation Plan. The plan sets goals, objectives, and policies for developing and improving Fitchburg's park and open space system and protecting the community's valued resources. The Plan also provides mid-term and long-term recommendations for achieving those goals and objectives. An up-to-date Plan is required for the City to be eligible for county, state, and federal grants.
City staff will be gathering feedback from all interested parties on the Plan update, at an open house and public meeting scheduled for 6:30 p.m., Thursday, September 30, Council Chambers, Fitchburg City Hall, 5520 Lacy Road, Fitchburg. The open house will be held from 6:30 – 7:00 p.m., with a presentation and other formal feedback opportunities scheduled for 7:00 p.m.
