Planners of the proposed Crowders Creek park in Lake Wylie are looking to build a solid plan for the county to review.
The York County Council approved an engineering agreement, for over $14,000, with Keck and Wood, inc. last week.
Last year the Council approved $30,000 for design and planning of the proposed Lake Wylie park. Their research returned a figure of $11.2 Million which was deemed too high by the Council and Crowders Creek park supporters.
Councilman Bruce Henderson, who represents the area where the park will be, also said in the next 50 days or so he expected “some information that is solid” on the park plan.
“This is really, really long overdue,” Henderson said.
Chairman Britt Blackwell said at the meeting a Crowders Creek park is a needed addition.
“Quality of life is important in York County and there’s a need for a park in that area, no doubt about it,” he said.
Most likely the final plan will include three baseball fields and four to six soccer fields.
