Also, mark your calendar for the 3rd Public Information Drop-In (PIDI) on Saturday, November 4th, from 8:30am - 12:00pm at the Transylvania County Parks and Recreation Gym, 1078 Ecusta Road, Brevard, N.C. The consultant team responsible for the DSRF master recreation planning effort has performed significant public outreach including PIDIs, on-line surveys, parking lot surveys, and individual user-group meetings/discussions to help inform recommendations regarding the ecological, social, and financial sustainability of DSRF. Careful analysis of the information obtained through these public engagement efforts coupled with evaluation of other data sources and real world observations has led to the formulation of preliminary recommendations for consideration. PIDI #3 will provide a forum for the consultant team to share the results of their findings and allow the public to select their preferred recommendation(s) from a list of preliminary options. The results of PIDI #3 will ultimately help formulate the final recommendations that will become part of the DSRF master recreation plan.
