Parks & Recreation Advisory Board Opening

If you’re interested in improving the parks and recreation system in Pittsboro and care to contribute a few spare hours once a month, the Town would love for you to apply for a seat on the Parks and Recreation Advisory Board. As the name implies, this board advises the Town on parks and recreation related matters. For more information and to download an application click here.

The board meets the second Tuesday of every month at 7:00pm. We're looking for residents within the Pittsboro Town Limits as well as residents of our ETJ/ planing jurisdiction. If you're unsure of your residency status, just return an application and I'll look it up for you. Instructions on how to return the form electronically are on the last line of the form. Alternatively you can drop it off at the Pittsboro Town Hall. I look forward to hearing from you!

Sneak Peak at Rock Springs Park

Progress is being made on Pittsboro's New Town Park despite the unaccommodating weather. Below are photos of a few features mid construction.

Future picnic shelter. This will support a forest green metal roof. Metal roofs have superior life cycle cost ratios; they cost just a bit more up-front but greatly reduce long term maintenance costs.
Detail of an unfinished bench under the cedar living roof gazebo.
Stone chaise lounge. This is a great boulder. Rumors of a cup holder being installed along with a "reserved for parks planner" sign are entirely unfounded - I don't know how these rumors get started. wink ;)
The boulder "cave" and another rustic bench. The bench slabs are from white oaks harvested on site.
Pedestrian entrance steps near Millbrook Circle. These will be further enhanced with the installation of stainless steel handrails.

This will be a beautiful park we can all enjoy when complete.
