BEAUFORT, S.C. (Dec. 18, 2020) – The City of Beaufort is seeking people interested in participating in a Southside Park Task Force. The task force will provide input to City Council and City staff about potential improvements to the 34-acre park in the Mossy Oaks neighborhood of Beaufort.
During City Council Work Session on Dec. 16, Mayor Stephen Murray asked that a new committee be formed to provide advice before the start of the next fiscal year, July 1, 2021. City Councilman Neil Lipsitz will be the council liaison for the committee.
A Southside Park Master Plan was developed in 2013. In the spring of 2018, a survey that garnered more than 300 responses asked people what features they would like to see at the park. The task force will be provided with the master plan and survey as they begin their work.
Currently, Southside Park has a dog park, walking trails, open space, and restrooms.
Those who are interested in being on the committee should submit their application by 5 p.m. Tuesday, Jan. 5. The application form can be found here: httpit.ly/3r3://bdz3z
Members of the committee are scheduled to be selected by City Council during executive session at their Jan. 12 meeting.
