Background on Media Open Space, Parks, Trails, and Recreation Plan
Media Borough Council has hired Toole Recreational Planning, a company that specializes in helping municipalities across the U.S. to develop comprehensive plans for open space, parks, trails, and recreation. Ann Toole, CEO, has over 35 years of experience in the field. Toole Recreational Planning is partnering with Veridian Landscape Studio and Johnson, Miriman, & Thompson (JMT) to facilitate the planning process in Media.
Media Borough Council has appointed a 21-member Steering Committee (SC) representing a wide range of Borough stakeholders, including Karen Taussig-Lux, the Borough Grants Administrator who is serving as SC coordinator; Borough Council members Kevin Boyer, Amy Johnson, and Peter Williamson; representatives of the Media Arts Council, Media Business Authority, Media Environmental Advisory Council, Media Planning Commission, Media Recreation Board, Media Youth Center, and the Rose Tree Media School Districts, and ten resident volunteers, including Terry Rumsey, Co-Chair of Keep Media Green.
The role of the SC is to identify & engage local residents, to gather and analyze relevant data, and to make recommendations to Media Borough Council. The SC meetings will be open to the public, although those attending will be expected to observe the meeting quietly until the Public Comment period at the end of the meeting.
In the future, the Consultants and the SC will sponsor focus groups, stakeholder interviews, community-wide public forums, and public surveys. Keep Media Green will post announcements about all public input opportunities.
The Consultants are hoping to complete and present the Media Open Space, Parks, Trails, and Recreation Planning by December 2020.
