Parks and recreation holds public input meetings

LAWRENCEVILLE -- The Department of Community Services through its Parks and Recreation division is scheduling a series of public meetings to provide input for the 2013 Capital Improvement Plan Update.

Citizens with an interest in the maintenance or provision of new park facilities in Gwinnett County are invited to express their recreational needs at one of five public meetings.
