SPEARFISH, SD – All are invited to  participate in upcoming public input sessions as part of the Spearfish Parks and Recreation Master Plan.

The meetings will take place at 5:30 p.m. on Tuesday, Sept. 29, and 5:30 p.m. Thursday, Oct. 1, in the gymnasium in the Spearfish Rec Center, located at 122 Recreation Lane.

The meeting on Sept. 29 will focus on parks, paths, and trails, while the Oct. 1 meeting will focus on the Spearfish Recreation and Aquatics Center program and facilities.

Both sessions are scheduled to run from 5:30-7 p.m., and residents are free to drop in at any time while the session is active.

Discussion during the meetings will focus on:

  • Accomplishing the Parks and Recreation department’s mission statement
  • The community’s vision for the department and its offerings
  • Fiscal and budgetary concerns
  • General discussion and input on all things parks and rec

Each topic will have its own station, and participants will have two methods of providing input:

  • They may write down their input with provided pens/pencils and paper and simply post it to the station’s easel board, and/or
  • They may join a station and discuss each topic with City staff and fellow participants for a set amount of time

Please note: With the current COVID-19 pandemic, station seats will be spaced 6 feet apart, and the number of seats per station will be limited. Participants wanting to join these discussions are strongly encouraged to wear a mask.

Masks and hand sanitizer will be provided, and staff will be sanitizing the room throughout the session.
