First meeting held to discuss future plans for Prescott Park in Portsmouth

The Associated Press

PORTSMOUTH (AP) - A committee formed by the mayor of Portsmouth gathered for its first meeting to discuss creating a master plan for a 10-acre park located along the city's waterfront.

Seacost Online reports Mayor Jack Blalock's Blue Ribbon Committee on Prescott Park met Thursday to discuss what Blalock called "a very active park with no real coordination."

Blalock says multiple "cooperative interests" make use of the city-owned park, and he believes it's up to Portsmouth to coordinate activities there.

The committee is considering two firms to develop the Prescott Park master plan with both the panel and the public's input.

They will be tasked with creating a list of capital improvements and projects, complete with the costs for each and methods for financing and implementation.
