Public Input Meeting This Thursday For New Park in Cherokee County

Cherokee County residents are invited to attend an upcoming public input meeting to provide feedback on a future park in the Hickory Flat community.

Cherokee Recreation and Parks and the Cherokee County Board of Commissioners will host the first of several public input meetings this Thursday, May 18, from 6:30 p.m. to 8:30 p.m., at The Hickory Flat Gym located at 4835 Hickory Road in Canton. Cherokee Recreation and Parks will host virtual meetings on the project in the future. Dates are to be determined.

The county purchased the 40-acre parcel of land in the spring of 2022, which is located at 5047 East Cherokee Drive, in the amount of $3.2 million using funds from the 2018 Special Local Option Sales Tax. The future park is located on the east side of East Cherokee Drive and adjacent to Hickory Flat United Methodist Church.

Input received at the meeting from the stakeholders and overall community will be used in the development of park concepts, a draft master plan and ultimately a final master plan which will be presented to the Board of Commissioners later in the year.
