About the Process
In June and July, we started reaching out to the community to see how they use courts, parking, shelter, etc. at Bluemont. The public was invited to share their experiences at Bluemont via an online questionnaire and in-person canvassing at parks and tennis courts around the area. The online feedback tool is accepting responses through August 31 and results will be used to help plan upcoming outreach efforts. Special thanks to everyone who's offered their input thus far!
A kickoff meeting introducing the community to the project and a corresponding online feedback opportunity will occur in October.
