Ezell Farm Park Workshop Oct 29

Charlotte, NC-- Mecklenburg County Park and Recreation Department and the Town of Mint Hill invite interested citizens to participate in developing a master plan for Ezell Farm Community Park at a public workshop on Thursday, October 29, 2009, 6:30pm at Mint Hill Town Hall, in the John M. McEwen Assembly Room. This will be the second of three community workshops

Park and Recreation planners will present three preliminary concept plans compiled from comments in the first workshop, last July. The public will be asked to comment on these concepts. Then, planners will use these comments to develop a final proposed plan to be presented at a third workshop to be scheduled later. The master plan is expected to be completed by the end of 2009.

Ezell Park will be built on 95 acres along Matthews-Mint Hill Road (NC Highway 51) bounded by Well Road and Mintwood Road. The site is about a mile south of the Mint Hill town center. This will be a community park. It will primarily serve residents of Mint Hill and northern Matthews. Such parks typically feature athletic fields (possibly lighted), playgrounds, walking trails, picnic areas, restrooms, parking, etc.

Phase I construction of the park is expected to cost about $3.6 million, paid for by 2008 Park and Recreation bonds. Additional phases will be developed as money is available. Exactly when the park will be built depends on the economy, bond sales, and decisions of Mecklenburg County Commissioners.

The working name of the park is Ezell Farm because the Ezell family, previous owners of the property, ran a farm on it for many years. (That may or may not be the permanent, official name of the park). For more information, please contact Park Planner David Nelson: 704-336-8455 or
