Charleston Residents Get Final Chance to View, Offer Input Into Wragg Square Park Renovations
CHARLESTON, S.C. – Charleston residents are invited to have their final say in the last presentation of renovation plans for Wragg Square Park in downtown Charleston. This Pride in Our Parks event, which allows Charlestonians to provide input into upgrades to their local parks, will be from 5:30-7:30 p.m. Nov. 19 at Second Presbyterian Church.
The City of Charleston, the Charleston Parks Conservancy and HLA Inc. landscape architects are working on this project and will be presenting the third, and final, set of conceptual plans as well as answering questions and gathering community feedback. The meeting will be in the Church Hall located adjacent to the main building at 342 Meeting St.
“As we wind down on the planning for this project, we are eager to share the plans and hear what local residents think about them,” says Jim Martin, executive director for the Charleston Parks Conservancy. “We want people to feel connected to their parks and having a say in their park’s future is the perfect way to do that.”
