News Release - Mascoutah Seeks Input on Future of Scheve Park

The City of Mascoutah is hosting a Public Workshop to ask residents for their input on the Scheve Park Master Plan.  The meeting will take place on Wednesday, March 14th at Mascoutah City Hall at 7:00 p.m.  The workshop will be held to elicit public comment and ideas about the future of Scheve Park.
HeartLands Conservancy is assisting the City with evaluating existing and future recreation and open space through an analysis of park acreage and accessibility, community benefit, ecological value, and other factors.  “With the town growing as it is, we are almost at full capacity in the current developed areas at Scheve Park,” said Mike Bolt, Assistant City Manager for Mascoutah.  “We want to make sure we fully utility and maximize the space we have remaining on the Northwest area of the Park and not have any wastes space.”  Ultimately the plan will identify appropriate and desirable use of green space and recreation areas.  “We look forward to hearing from citizens to help us achieve updating the Scheve Park Master Plan, and seeing the evolution of this project the next few years,” Mike Bolt said. 
The survey is being sent out in the utility bills in January asking a range of questions about the current and future wants and needs for the park.  Printable survey can also be found below.  Completed surveys can be dropped off at City Hall. 
The survey can also be completed online at through the end of March 2018.
