Metro Parks Hosting Public Meeting on A.B. Sawyer Park Master Plan
Meeting to take place on Tuesday, June 21
Metro Parks will host the first in a series of public meetings on Tuesday, June 21, to discuss future plans for A.B. Sawyer Park, the home of Lyndon Recreation, Metro recycling site and Metro Parks Forestry. The meeting will take place from 7-8:30 p.m. at Lyndon City Hall, 515 Wood Road.
This is the first meeting in a series to develop a master plan for A.B. Sawyer Park.
Metro Parks planners will discuss the unique geological features of the area including two springs, woodlands, wetlands and meadows.
The balance between active and passive use of the area will be discussed along with connection to the Louisville Loop via the A.B. Sawyer Greenway.
In addition, Metro Parks is seeking photos, old newspaper clippings or any other additional historical items residents may have relating to the property. Residents are encouraged to bring these items to the June 21st meeting.
Citizens who can’t attend the meeting will be able to take part in the planning process by visiting the Metro Parks website, where they can offer online feedback, sign up for an e-mail notification list for announcements of future meetings, and see conceptual plans as they are developed.
