TERRE HAUTE — The Terre Haute Parks & Recreation Department is planning a meeting with invited stakeholders from the surrounding community. This meeting is designed to share ideas for a five-year parks master plan.  

“With ideas from area business owners, contractors and park enthusiasts, we can get a better perspective of where we want to focus or prioritize our improvements and how best to go about completing these tasks,” said Eddie Bird, park superintendent.

Park board members, park staff and invited stakeholders will meet at noon Feb. 8 at the Torner Center in Deming Park.

Members of the public also will have the opportunity to offer their opinions. A public meeting has been set for 4-6 p.m. Feb. 12 at the Collett Park Pavilion.  

Those who cannot attend the public meeting but who wish to give input can do so through an online survey posted on the city’s website, www.terre
