Park master plan to be topic of meeting

July 1, 2007


The Burroughs Creek trail and linear park master plan will be discussed at 6 p.m. July 9 at the Union Pacific Depot, 402 N. Second St.

Members of Bartlett and West Engineering will discuss the master plan, including the development of it.

In March, the East Lawrence Neighborhood Association, the Brook Creek Neighborhood Association, the Woods on 19th Homeowners Association, the Barker Neighborhood Association and Lawrence Parks and Recreation Department had a public meeting to collect input for the plan.

"We've had a master plan session, and this meeting will be to show everyone what we have come up with," said Mark Hecker, park superintendent.

For those unable to attend the meeting, they can still give input regarding the development by contacting Hecker at the Parks and Recreation administrative office at 832-3450 or by e-mailing

I've been a believer in this project for about 20 years. I grew up along those railroad tracks and walked them constantly. When they were removed, a trail was obvious. I have used the Haskell portion many, many times.
