CAROLINA BEACH  - The second public meeting for the Lake Park Master Plan is scheduled for Thursday, December 19th from 6:00 PM to 7:30 PM in the Council Chambers at Carolina Beach Town Hall.

Public participation in the development of the Carolina Beach Lake Park Master Plan is essential. The public will have an opportunity to be a partner in the design process by offering feedback at this drop in style public workshop. This will allow residents an opportunity to voice their opinions on the siting of each park facility, renovation ideas, location and width of buffers, and programming of activities within the park. If you are unable to attend the public workshop and would like to comment on the project, please email Eric Jelinski, Parks and Recreation Director, at This email address is being protected from spambots.

The project will focus on improving the park at the Carolina Beach Lake on South Lake Park Blvd. The area already has a bike and walking path around the Lake as well as benches, a picnic shelter, rest rooms and an outdoor amphitheater.

The Lake Park Master Plan will meet all requirements for the Parks and Recreation Trust Fund (PARTF) grant application. The PARTF awards matching grants to local governments for parks, public beach access, and improvement in state parks. The statewide program helps local governments reach their park and public access goals to improve the quality of life in their communities. There are also numerous avenues to fund park improvement projects through additional grants, fund raising, and sponsorship opportunities. There are no Town funds that have been designated to any park improvements at this time.

The main objective is to get a community-approved plan adopted, prioritize the amenities, and then look into strategic ways of funding the improvements.

The final Lake Park Master Plan document will include graphic illustrations that will provide staff with a program for implementing various components of the plan. It will also identify project priorities, estimated construction costs, and address phasing of improvements.

The Carolina Beach Parks and Recreation Department and Carolina Beach Parks and Recreation Advisory Committee look forward to collaborating with the community on the design process!

Plans for the proposal are available on the Town's website at www.carolinabeach.org
