Park usage takes center stage in Chiefland

-A A +A
By Lou Elliott Jones, Editor

The Chiefland City Recreation Committee meets at noon today to finalize details on a deal that will allow public access to the city’s athletic fields, including the Chiefland Area Athletic Association and the Gulf Coast Panthers semi-pro football team.

With only three members attending — Vice Mayor Teresa Barron, and Commissioners Sammy Cason and Frank Buie — the city commission held a workshop Tuesday to address updating its rules for city park use and to settle how the CAAA and the Panthers would share practice fields and a soccer field in dire need of grass repair.

The major change in the proposed rules is requiring organizers of sports or special events to file for a special use permit that details when and which park facilities will be used. The city manager’s office will handle the permit requests.

The proposal covers all the city recreation facilities: Delma Locke Park, Charles Strickland Recreational Park, Eddie Buie Recreational Park and the Chiefland Trailhead.
