ANGIER – The town of Angier is seeking information from landscape architecture and engineering firms to provide design services and prepare a master plan for a future town park.
The park is envisioned on 110 acres, currently used as a spray field between N.C. Highway 55 and Guy Road just north of the Black River. The town owns the land.
“While the property does not currently have access from a public road, the intent is for the park to have access from Guy Road,” according to an Angier legal notice advertised in The Daily Record. A shared drive “will be negotiated with the adjacent landowner that [sic] will be developing that property.”
Town officials say the master plan for the park should be complete in March. A selection committee is expected to narrow down a short list of preferred developers by the end of August. The chosen firm will be announced in September.
“Consultants should have experience with community engagement and the design of athletic fields, sport courts, playgrounds, trails and other recreational amenities. The project will also include the design of an entry drive, parking and the inclusion of restrooms and picnic shelters,” according to the ad.
