Parks & Trails to host charrette for trails master plan study

RELEASE DATE: September 7, 2007

TAVARES — The Lake County Department of Public Works, Parks & Trails Division, is holding a design charrette on Thursday, Sept. 13, from 9:30 a.m. to 3 p.m. at the Leesburg Community Building, located at 100 E. Dixie Ave., to discuss Lake County's trails master plan study.

The charrette, which allows participants to brainstorm and actively design with planners, will include exercises to develop prototypical major and minor trailheads and trail rest areas. In addition, the group will participate in the design of the aesthetic elements of trail amenities, such as benches, shade structures, signage, lighting, wall textures and handrails.
The ideas developed at the charrette will help planners produce design elements of the trails master plan study. Lake County has contracted with Inwood Consulting Engineers of Oviedo, Fla., for this project. For more information, call David Graeber, consultant project manager, at 407-971-8850 or e-mail dgraeber@inwoodinc.com.
