The City of Purcell and the Purcell Parks & Recreation Dreams Team has scheduled a public meeting at 6 p.m. Tuesday, Jan 29 in the Purcell City Council Room at the Police Department Building, 1515 North Green Avenue. A plan for a Recreational Trail around Purcell City Lake will be presented. Any Purcell citizens interested in viewing the proposal to understand the design, ask questions and provide their comments are encouraged to attend.

The Plan, with consideration of the public comments gathered at this meeting, will be submitted to the Oklahoma Parks / Tourism and Recreation Department for a grant application. The funding to Oklahoma originates from Federal Highway Administration support provided for the Recreational Trails Program.

The Purcell City Council selected the Parks & Recreation Dreams Team from a cross-section of the community, representing the business, social services, education and government to make sure a variety of perspectives are considered. They all share the desire for Purcell to be continually improving as a great place to live.
