Pitt County Office Park Community Center Plan Update
Final plan to be presented on June 26
PITT COUNTY, N.C. – The Pitt County Board of Commissioners approved the allocation of $10 million ($5 million each) in American Rescue Plan funding for two Community Centers/Gyms in November 2022. One facility will be at the Alice F. Keene District Park and the other at the Pitt County Office Park located north of the Tar River.
Pitt County Planning and Community Schools & Recreation staff are working with design professionals from Rivers & Associates, Inc. to develop a recreation site plan that will encompass the area designated for the Office Park Community Center and the adjacent outdoor recreation space.
Since the February stakeholder meetings, a draft plan was developed and shared with the Board of County Commissioners on April 3, 2023. The plan and other project information are available at www.pittcountync.gov/NORCommunityCenterRecPlan.
“County staff is excited about the recreational possibilities that the two community centers will provide to our citizens,” says Alice Keene, Recreation Projects Coordinator, Planning Department. Keene continues, “the proposed center and associated outdoor recreational space at the Office Park are destined to be major attractions for those who live or work North of the River.”
The next steps are to finalize the plan and calculate cost estimates for the prioritized phases for review and approval at the June 26 meeting of the Board of County Commissioners.
