Just in: Parks & Rec. Committee meeting Wednesday evening

Victor Schneider, Chair of Norwood City Council’s Parks and Recreation Committee, has called a meeting of the committee for this Wednesday, February 27. It will get underway at 7:00 p.m. at the Community Center, 1810 Courtland Avenue. Councilpersons Keith Moore, Ward 1 and Steve Thornbury, Ward 2 also serve on the committee. We have a call in to NCT to find out whether or not the meeting will be aired live on cable Channel 4.

1. Community Center Renovation
2. Community Theatre at Community Center
3. Burwood Park
4. Waterworks

12:45 p.m. UPDATE: Councilperson Schneider just responded to our email asking about Item 2 on the agenda, Community Theatre. Sounds like he’s hoping for a good turnout from residents for Wednesday night’s meeting. Here’s what he had to say:

“Community Theatre is getting the stage at the Community Center back in shape so that we can potentially have a summer, fall, or winter production or something going on to use the stage. I had two people ask me about it since the Community Center is now being utilized more. Could be fun. I am just trying to find out if there is real interest. Hopefully, we will have some interest in all of the exciting changes that are happening at the parks. It would be great to have some resident involvement and to schedule some clean-ups and really get the word out.”

He also said the meeting won’t air live, but it will be videotaped and played later on Channel 4.
