2013 Open Space and Recreation Plan Update

The Town of Conway is currently working to update its Open Space and Recreation Plan. The Conway Open Space and Recreation Plan Update Committee is eager to share their work with town residents and get their feedback on the Draft Goals and Objectives and the Draft Seven Year Action Plan.

What is an Open Space and Recreation Plan and why do we need one?

An Open Space and Recreation Plan (OSRP) is a long-term vision and Seven Year Action Plan for the Town and its residents. Public participation is a critical element in developing an OSRP that reflects the goals and needs of Conway’s citizens. An OSRP provides a comprehensive inventory of the town’s natural, cultural, agricultural, and recreational resources, and an analysis of the Town’s open space and recreation needs. The 7-Year Action Plan contains specific recommendations that, if implemented by town boards, committees and residents, will help to protect the town’s natural resources and open spaces and provide residents with recreation opportunities. Our OSRP has expired. We need a current, state-approved OSRP to apply for open space and recreation grant funding.

How can you participate?

Attend the public forum! Please join us on March 14th from 6:00 -8:00 p.m. at the Conway Town Hall for a public forum to learn about the work of the Open Space and Recreation Plan Update Committee and provide input on the Draft Goals and Objectives and Seven Year Action Plan. Your ideas about the future of Conway’s open space and recreation resources are important! Light refreshments will be served.
