Parks Dept. to consider country club land use

Last week, the Germantown Parks and Recreation Commission voted to reconvene the Parks and Recreation Master Plan Steering Committee to further review the possibility of how the Germantown Country Club property might fit into the Parks Master Plan.

The action took place following a presentation by Parks Director Pam Beasley. The presentation included details about how the acquisition of this property might align with the Parks and Recreation Master Plan that was adopted last year by the Mayor and Board of Aldermen.

The next step in the process is a work session where the Master Plan Steering Committee will discuss the opportunity.

The meeting will take place on Feb. 9, at 9 a.m. at the Pickering Center. While the public is welcome to attend, no public comment will be allowed during the meeting. Instead, those interested in weighing in are asked to use the online form found at Germantown-TN.gov/Comment.

All comments made by Feb. 6 will be recorded, summarized and provided to committee members to consider while deliberating on their recommendation.

This action is the result of Mayor Palazzolo asking the Germantown Parks and Recreation Commission to explore the possibility of the City purchasing the property to be used as a park.

The decision to reconvene the Master Plan Steering Committee brings a diverse group of park users and stakeholders into the process. City departments will provide information about the property to help the group determine the viability of the project. Cost will also be a factor in the decision.

Details from the Parks and Recreation Commission’s research and resulting recommendation will be made public as soon as they are finalized. The commission’s recommendation will be considered by the Board of Mayor and Aldermen, which will make a final decision on the purchase.

All commission meetings are open to the public. For a complete list of meetings, visit Germantown-TN.gov/Calendar. Again, public comments related to the project are being collected at Germantown-TN.gov/Comment.
