County seeks public’s input on parks and recreation

Parks and recreation will be the subject of a town hall meeting at 7:30 p.m. Wednesday at the Dr. A.J. Ferlazzo Building, 15941 Donald Curtis Dr., Woodbridge.

The Prince William Board of County Supervisors will host the meeting to seek public input on topics such as field use, availability and amenities, upgrades to school athletic fields, indoor facilities, parkland preservation and financing options.

“Sports and recreation are significant to the fabric of our community,” board Chairman Corey A. Stewart (R-At Large) said. “The board needs to hear from the citizens on this issue to make certain we make informed and practical decisions to meet the demand for athletic fields, indoor recreation and open recreation space in a responsible and responsive manner.”
