Members of the community are once again begin asked to assist the City of Bristol, Tennessee in guiding the future development of Steele Creek Park by participating in a public input session as part of the ongoing Steele Creek Park Recreation Amenities Feasibility and Prioritization Study.
Sessions will be held on Wednesday, Dec. 8, and Thursday, Dec. 9, at Slater Community Center. Both sessions will begin at 6 p.m. and will allow the public to speak with consultants Evan Eleff of The Sports Facilities Companies and Marc Bond of Lose Design and provide input on the park’s current and future recreational amenities. Because both sessions will be similar, participants should choose the one most convenient to their schedule.
Information gathered during the upcoming sessions, data collected during an online survey conducted last year, staff input, and consultant recommendations will be compiled into a final report for City Council consideration. If approved, the report will guide the future development of Steele Creek Park for many years.
The plan now being developed marks the first time in decades that the City has conducted an in-depth plan to guide the park’s development. The Steele Creek Park Master Plan was implemented in November 1983. Subsequent plans in 1992 and 1997 covered some aspects of the overall park but were primarily focused on the Steele Creek Park Nature Center.
