Park Master Plan
The Town worked with McGill Associates to develop a Park Master Plan which inventoried existing recreation facilities and opportunities and created a site specific revitalization plan for the park located behind the Town Hall. McGill Associates was then selected to produce construction documents for the renovations and Piedmont, LLC was awarded the contract for construction.
The public has been an integral partner in developing the master plan. Input from several public meetings, a booth at the Town's Crossroads Festival, and an online survey conducted for several months have been used to forge plans for the future of recreation in Boiling Springs.
Survey results indicate citizens want the Town to pursue grants, donations, and similar funding sources for this project. We are listening and pursuing several funding avenues. The Master Plan Document was completed in 2018. We secured $150,000 from the NC Department of Natural and Cultural Resources via Speaker Tim Moore and $80,000 in funding from Cleveland County Government aimed towards ensuring the facility is accessible for people of all physical abilities. Total project cost is just under $420,000 with the Town contributing approximately $190,000 from Fund Balance. We continue exploring other funding options including private donations, corporate giving programs, and relevant non-profits for future and further enhancements.
