Missouri State Parks seeks public input on property’s future use

JEFFERSON CITY, MO, JUNE 4, 2019 – Bryant Creek State Park invites the public to an informational meeting at 5:30 p.m., Tuesday, June 11, at Ava Senior Center. The public is invited to share comments about the currently closed state park. State park staff will be on hand to provide information and answer questions.

Representatives from Missouri State Parks will be present to discuss the uniqueness of the nearly 3,000 acres, as well as to receive input from the public regarding their perspective on the future use of the property. The meeting will be the first of three meetings as part of the Conceptual Development Plan (CDP) process state park staff uses whenever it develops land for a new park. A second CDP meeting will follow in September with a third planned early next the year. The process is designed to provide information on the park to the public and allow user groups to suggest the scope and use patterns of the property.

 Input from the public is important to Missouri State Parks. These informational meetings, which are being held in all state parks and historic sites, help create two-way communication with the public. The meetings give staff the opportunity to let people know the current status and future plans for the parks and historic sites, and they offer visitors the opportunity to comment on the facilities.

Ava Senior Center is located at 281-283 NE Second St., Ava, in southwest Missouri. For more information, please contact Carl Bonnell at Table Rock State Park at 417-334-4704.
