Designers present plan for proposed park in Centerville

CENTERVILLE, Georgia (41NBC/WMGT) – Designers are looking for the public’s input on new design plans for the city’s “Center Park.”

A group from Clark Patterson Lee, a design firm based in Atlanta, presented city council members and residents sketches and renderings for the proposed park along with a master plan.

The city purchased eight acres of land in April 2015 for what was originally planned to be a downtown district.

Clark Patterson Lee conducted a survey asking residents what they thought Centerville was lacking — 50% of those who participated in the survey said Centerville lacked a central downtown space.

“We hope that people come in and say ‘oh gosh what a great opportunity based on our downtown area,” Mayor John Harley said in an interview in April 2015.

The master plan also determined residents wanted to see different opportunities at the park including: a playground, restrooms, a splash pad, parking, multipurpose space, sidewalks, and trails.

According to Harley, the city will be taking public opinion on Facebook or suggestions at city hall until the middle of October.
