TDEC extends public comment period for 10-year parks and recreation plan in TN
Tennessee state environment officials are extending a public comment period on input for a plan to outline priorities for recreation in the state for the next ten years.
The plan, titled TN 2030: Tennessee State Recreation Plan, will be used as a guide for the future of public recreation in Tennessee. The plan will address activity in urban and rural neighborhoods and activity in different regions of the state.
“Planning is an integral part of what we do, and we want to hear from Tennesseans about their thoughts for parks and conservation long term,” TDEC Commissioner David Salyers said. “While we are working hard on the plan, we need the input of Tennesseans across the state. The people’s feedback and participation are important for us to succeed.”
The Department of Environment and Conservation says the project will include short-term initiatives that could be accomplished in five years, as well as long-term initiatives that will take ten years to achieve.
The deadline for submissions for public comment has been extended from Feb. 19 to March 15 and comments can be submitted online by clicking here.
