No horsing around in new park plan

The Parks and Recreation Department started shaping a plan to develop a regional park in southeast Columbia in November 2007. What started with two proposals back then has turned into a final proposal now. The biggest difference is that the newest proposal lost a 17-acre equestrian area. I wrote a story for Friday‘s paper about the Parks and Recreation Commission’s approval of the proposal at their meeting Thursday evening.

During the planning process, the department surveyed residents about what they wanted in a regional park. Tammy Miller, the department’s public information officer, e-mailed me some of the results from late 2008. Take a look at what the respondents outlined as their priorities.
